Getting Creative in Ireland

For anyone with a creative bent, there’s nothing like a trip to Ireland to get those creative juices flowing.

We came upon The Art Hand in County Waterford when our friend Ruby Clover was invited to teach a course there (her 3-day session on making waaaaay cool collage boxes will be held July 4-6th).
