Here's my friend Cindy, admiring some jewelry in Joanna's booth (from Sweet Finds ). Cindy & I went to high school together & we recently reconnected. She makes beautiful jewelry & I keep telling her she needs to start a blog.Here's Joanna & me. Joanna taught the crown class in my Paper Cowgirl retreat..she's super-talented & mega-sweet. We also took a ruched rose class from Jana recently & she's joined the Art Diva's group....I'm looking forward to many more classes, both w/ her & from her.
Here's Jana, the Queen Diva herself! I just love her outfit! I have to brag on Jana for a minute cause she may be the most talented woman I know. She seems to be able to do everything & do it extremely well & w/ great style....but I like her anyway. ;o)
Look at the sweet little aprons she makes...I should have gotten me one! But I can pick one up the next time I'm in her shop.
And these are the some of the girls from my art group. We're missing Jana, Joanna, me & Rochelle. From left to right it's Lisa, JoAnn (she's the girl I copied the altered spoons idea from...she doesn't have a blog but should), Charlene, Carolyn & Pat. This is one talented group of women...I'm very honored to be a part of the Art Diva's!
Look at the fabulous houses Carolyn makes....they are so detailed!
Love this pink Christmas one!
And this china cabinet of Lisa's was beautiful...I'm very surprised it didn't sell. I have one almost exactly like it & will never tire of it. You can see mine here in this post. Mine doesn't have the wonderful gingerbread trim in the door though.
And Lori from Katie's Rose Cottage showed up @ the Trade Days too! Here she is w/ Pat.
I didn't buy much that day, spent too much time talking & laughing & not enough time focused on teh hunt. I saw several things, in everybody's pictures, that I never noticed while shopping. But I did score some treasures!
Love thsi old shoe form! I saw an altered one by somebody in the "It's All About Me" party & it made me want to do one.
Love these tiny little "scenes". They'll be great on tags or under a mini-cloche or something.
And I bought this Valentine kit to make a special Valentine for a very special granddaughter.
I had a lot of fun that day....visiting w/ friends both new & old, junkin' for treasures & soaking up a gorgeous fall day. Life is good! Jana is having another Trade Days next spring & guess who will have a booth there? Yep, I'm giving myself a "license to buy" (as Jana calls it)...what fun!
