In Indy I saw...

1. LOTS of nice FUN gals...
they came with nice clean hands & left with VERY inky fingers...
Imagine that!!!

2. LOTS of HAPPY faces...before we even started...

We had LOTS of students, so the workshops were moved out of the store...

we had GREAT accomodations @ the Jameson Inn...

3. THE...Sherry Cheever...on a "perch" getting a birds eye view of the Ranger technique class...


and then I saw...

4. 2 friends with THE I-PAD...OMG!!!!!!!
It is the coolest thing...small is too cute!

I called them..."the enablers".

They had angelic faces...

but they tormented me with the marvels of the IPad...

so...those faces were NOT as sweet as I first thought...

YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE...(Daisy & Jenn)

I just might have to succumb...

Yes MR IRS...I NEED it for BUSINESS...SERIOUSLY!

I DO!

5. I saw & ATE...
Sugar Creme Pie...
compliments of Meghan...
It's "the dessert of Indy"...

Soooooooo Yummy & lo-cal...
I think that's what she said?

6. I got to meet blog friends...
and Linda, who had won a prize on my blog! SO FUN!!!


7. I traveled in the "twilight zone"...
remember the old TV show?

My flight left Indy @ 5pm and I arrived in Chicago @ 4:55pm...
According to the clock I arrived before I left...

YIKES!!!

8. LOTS of grunge being cut for the Maya Road mini book ...
which is filled with mini art!
I think there are about 30 new grunge ADDICTS...
welcome to the club gals! I warned you!!!

9. I got...
2 AWESOME thank you cards...
THANK YOU Cathy & Meghan!!

THANKS to everyone for a VERY FUN...
VERY INKY & ARTY weekend!!

It's GREAT to be home for a bit...
I purposely schedule no workshops for this time...
to start working on projects for book #3...

with NEW studio 490 stamps..and tim' dies
and embossing folders...

and CHA projects...

and re-organizing the basement supply storage area...
got more new shelves...
Rick is down there banging away now...
putting them together...
organized it good...LOVE IT!

and a little antiquing with my hubby...
gotta find that mantle soon...
the wall is naked...
YIKES!!!

I hope that your week is good &
that you can take time to...
MAKE ART!
