July 2014 First Friday Art Walk Weekend

Welcome to the July 4-6, 2014 First Friday Art Walk Weekend Event Post.
Every month the members of our AWETeam (Art Walk Etsy Team) come together to share their new, seasonal appropriate, holiday, etc work on our "event" thread.
First Friday Art Walk Weekend

Here in the US, the First Friday of this month happens to be our nations Independence Day, and most official "First Friday" local events are either suspended for July or are moved to a different date (like the second Friday of the month).

Having an online event like this that lasts the entire weekend, allows us to keep on schedule.

Here are some team treasuries for this First Friday:
