Art on the Green


The last little blooming cherry blossom tree on the tidal basin, last Friday.

Spring has officially sprung!! It is so nice to see green grass, bright yellow flowers and sunshine. I have been waiting somewhat patiently to get back out to markets. Given the weather and my schedule, I haven't been able to do this as much as I would have liked. However, this coming Sunday is Art on the Green and I am really looking forward to it. I've been sewing like it will save the world and have *tons* of stock for you to pick from. Little coin purses, fun and funky fabric patterns and even a new table cloth for you to admire!

What? Art on the Green
Where? Chinquapin Recreation Center Fields
3210 King Street
Alexandria, Virginia
When? Sunday, April 27, noon to 5pm
Who? All of us!
Why? Because Art on the Green is "held in conjunction with Titan Expo 2008, a T.C. Williams High School annual student-teacher-parent-sponsored multicultural festival." The funds raised at the Expo go toward scholarships for T.C. Williams seniors.
How come? In addition to the art market, Titan Expo will have book and bake sales and other family centered events.
Website? More general info at www.acps.k12.va.us/tcw/expo.php

Hope to see you for this really great community event. I'm looking forward to getting a peak at the new T.C. Williams school building, and seeing all of you out there! ~Jen

Green Tip~ As the weather gets warmer, buy and use a windshield sun screen in your vehicle. Such as http://www.woolworthonline.com/spring-shade--collapsible-auto-windshield-sun-screen.html This will save you in gas and engine wear, as you crank on that a.c. to cool off your car. Also, it helps protect the interior of your car, lengthening the good looks of your dash, and the coolness of the steering wheel.
