Today we honor Women’s #Equality Day which marks the passing of the 19th Amendment which ensured women’s the right to vote on August 26, #1920. It was a multi-generational struggle to be recognized as full #citizens. This photo of a women’s suffrage supporter, Inez Milholland, was taken for the Women’s Journal, March 8, 1913. She gallantly marched to bring change.
The annual Sawdust Art & Craft Festival in Laguna Beach, California is a highly anticipated summer experience. It ends on August 30th, so don’t miss an opportunity to meet over 200 local artisans and buy their designs in person. You will want to go back multiple times. This artist village in Laguna has a refreshing environment between the canyon and beach breeze. Sawdust is spread throughout the grounds and it reminds you that woodworking has been done for this year’s creations. We wore our favorite Chisme Chick leather and handcrafted bracelets. This year, we met new artists and saw some incredible glass blowing demonstrations.
We participated in a pastel workshop and took this photo of our still life arrangement. There was a small bug (featured in this photo) hiding in the vase and watched us add each stroke on the piece of paper.
