I will be painting with my pastels on Saturday, April 25, at Art Connections  from 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.  Yesterfest is a fun time in Bastrop.  There will be artists painting and many artisans presenting "how to" with their talents.

You are a busy woman and Bastrop is a busy place.

Bag Blog, we could definitely stay busy if we did all the things there are to do. Usually live music on Fridays and Saturdays at several of the restaurants. And all the rest...... We don't do as much as we should ... or could.
