We have just finished the creative connections event.
In my opinion it was an overwhelming success.
It is not about the money that you get by selling our
wares...it is about connecting with this talented
band of women, who are willing to help each other.
Jo and Nancy our hosts...Thank-you for being the
beautiful, kind, generous
and authentic spirits that you are.
It was a show that lived up to it's title.
I felt connected.
Connected to the women that attended,
the vendors, volunteers, Judy the UPS
Lady...I would like to call out Darla who
put up with my phone calls and pestering.
But most of all....I want to thank my
beautiful and generous daughter-in-law, Brenda.
I was the social butterfly...she did all the work.
When I did show up at the booth, everyone I met
told me how charming, kind, darling and helpful she was.
Bren...you are my daughter and I love you.
And look how organized....keeping track of business cards for me.
someone you love them...what the heck are you doing
those other 364 days in the year. So I really never
know what to expect. One year I will get a trip to
Italy...the next year zippo.
Well this year for my B day he went all out
and I love it.
He knows I am in a recycling frame of mind.
So he rescued this part from a dumpster.
Now this is not just any dumpster but..
at Dale Chihully's studio. ( Did I mention
my guy is a photographer?) He had been
shooting there for a week and found this.
It is the inside of an industrial vacuum cleaner.
It is so cool. After 13 years he still knows how
to charm me.
as a footnote I
did receive this from my
bunny sister Jeanne
I love it. I love her art. There is just something
that is in a piece of art, a part of that person.
That is why I guess I make things because I want
to give a part of myself away. Well anyway,
this is a part of Jeanne and I will treasure it always.
And from my other sister
A GIFT CERTIFICATE FOR TWO MASSAGES!
And here I will quote
"I thought this would be the best thing to
give for a sore and tired old crafter."
She has the gift of wit...
Oh and from another bunny sister Dana
A beautiful wooden bowl made by
her kind and generous hubby....
He found the one with the most
"unusual characteristics". They know
me so well.
I will take a picture of it and post.
It sits right by our beautiful Buddha.
All in all a happy 55!
