This is wonderful, Katie! Congrats!


How exciting for you! You will love Italy!
Tip: Bring round mailing tubes with you to put amazing posters in that they post all over the city. You can get amazing posters of art and concerts.

Delighted to hear about your new venture next year! I pop in regularly to your blog - must start saving for Italy! :)

Katie! This is incredible news! I am so happy for you!
I look forward to hearing more details.

I am loving your latest artwork - especially that blue doggie - just great!



hi katie, congrats on your teaching trip out to Italy. That town looks too beautiful to be real. I am sure it will inspire.

As for your question you left at my blog the other day-no I won't be attending artfest. But I may try to head out there one of the days to meet up with people. I'll let you know if I do as I would love to see you too!


Congratulations Katie, how wonderful, you and Judy must be over the moon, next stop Australia.


I am so envious I am losing my breath! Not envious of you (well maybe a little) but of all the people who will be attending your class.....in Italy! Sigh!

Congrats, Katie.

Art in Italy, both making it and seeing it, is truly heaven on earth.

Wooohooo how amazing for you - well deserved - you will have an absolute ball.


Oh wow!!!!

*sigh* Mi manca italia ogni giorno. Forse come un pezzo del mio cuore e peduto la.

You know I used to live there, right? Oh I would love to go back one day.

I cannot wait to hear what you see, see what you see...



So excited for you! So glad you are feeling better, too! Italy and good health - does it get any better?

Tina (in Seattle)

What fabulous news! That is so exciting! I can't wait to hear of your trip.


Such exciting news for you Katie! I'm sitting here, dressed and ready for my new "yucky" day job and I thought I'd drop by and say hi - it's been such a long time! I've had a horrible month or so - I'll take a deep breath and blog it all down soon! I love your plaster pieces and the piece for project eight is so different - he's got such a different personality - I love him!!!
Keep being excited about Italy - what a great thing to look forward to xoxo
