This sounds amazing! the Sawdust Art Festival in Long Beach

Like a moth to a flame I was drawn  by fate to find this.  I love ANYTHING wood even good old fashioned forest and tree’s.  Living in Southern California where it is very dry and most nature is planned landscaping, I have a genuine appreciation for natural habitat.

BACK TO THE WOOD, so I was looking for new and fun things to do and found the Sawdust Art festival.  I love the craftsmanship that goes into anything made of wood and I really look forward to making it out to this sometime soon.

In case you missed it…The Art and Music fest at Cal State San Bernardino was a hit!!
