This weekend, I am spending time with my daughter Kate discussing creativity - she is on her iPhone right now participating in a “tweet chat” (a conference via twitter) with hundreds of other creative people. On Saturday, Kate taught a class on block printing (and I was the class assistant!) at the Loft Art Supply in Athens, Ga. - so I got to play at creativity all day! 

Here are some photos from the Loft workshop. Kate will be posting more photos on Love & Reason this coming week - so keep your eyes open for it if you’d like to join us the next time she teaches a creativity class!
