The day after I sent in an application to attend a Fair Trade workshop in Seattle, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival 2013 schedule came out. And wouldn't you know, some of the best entertainment will be while I'm out of town. Saturday-Billy Joel. Sunday-Dave Matthews Band! So now I wait to see if I am chosen for the all expense paid training, knowing that it's all good either way. Besides, the next weekend will be Maroon 5 and Fleetwood Mac. That will do!
Below is a photo from a previous Jazz Fest, on one of the festival's weekdays. The crowds are smaller and food lines shorter...but still great music and eats...and a good time spent with my sisters and our mom.

The larger "coins" were punched from patterned paper, adhered to circles of chipboard, and topped with enamel dots like below:
I love when collections have papers that can be made into embellishments like this. Echo Park does it quite often.
