On Friday I was the featured photographer at an art gallery here. Space was limited, so I had to keep my display very small and was instructed to only bring the bare essentials, and that is what I did.
It was AWESOME!!!!! I got to show off some of my work, made some AWESOME,AWESOME connections, and really enjoyed networking with other local artists! This opportunity could have been given to ANYONE!!! I am SO glad I was thought of! YAY! I have already been asked to come back to the next show in October!!! YAY!!!! So busy days are ahead!! GOOD STUFF!!! If you look closely you might see someone you recognize **coughcoughvirginiaireallylovethatpictureofyouandatticusinthehospitalcoughcough** tee hee. I was BEAT when I got home Friday night. I am still very excited about what is ahead for me. Very excited! I also got VIP passes to see The Salon . Can't wait to see that!
Yesterday was NSD. My kids WOKE up wanting to scrapbook...How did they know? LOL No, one wants to take a picture right now, so I will show you guys their work later on LOL, even Aj did a LO!
Then they got hungry and made a "healthy snack"
Notice the pile of "sugar"? lol They put a "sheet" on the table to serve as a tablecloth lol....they are a mess! lol
I went by the store to "help-out", well more like "talk" tee hee, and was able to help a new scrapper! yay! She asked so many questions! It was soooooo much fun. I remember when I was like that lol. While there, Mrs. Noreen came in (pls excuse that non-sense in the picture....aka...my double chin) the store was kinda busy so I had to do a self portrait lol....
and then there is the loveliness called "Gretchen"
Gretchen is a really, really sweet person. Can't help but love her.....tee hee, and she makes you love stuff like the little bitty MM letter stickers lol. WHY can't I work my freakin point and shoot?!? UGH. I mean it is NOT rocket science, but I never take good pics with that thing. SOMETIMES, but not always, Maybe because it was on auto....I don't like auto lol
Oh and the JOY OF JOYS. I got a package from....
Yes, yes, yes......what was in my package!?!?!?
The bestestest stuff called KOIGU . OMG. This stuff feels SO GOOD! This will be for my chevron scarf. If this stuff wasn't in hanks....I would have cast it on as SOON as I got it. Since it IS in hanks, and you simply can NOT work from it like that, and since I have ordered a LOT of yarn that should be here ANY day not that is ALSO in hanks, that I did NOT get from my LYS so they will NOT wind it for me....I purchased this:
In other knitting news, Toya and I are doing our first KAL. IT will be for the Summer Time Tunic in the new IK. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to join and the blog can be found HERE. We are aiming to start on or around May 15th. So YAY!
And yet MORE knitting news....I was looking at the Spring Knitty patterns(I am supposed to be getting ready for church right now lol) and Kayla was sitting with me and she liked this...
It's called Monica . AND it's done in Robin's favorite! Brown sheep cotton fleece! ROFLOL!
Kayla want's hers in Tea Rose and Pink-A-Boo and Jaelyn wants hers in Raging Purple and Gold Dust, why purple and gold? I bet Cheryl can tell you lol. Those are her "new" school colors....her words were, I can wear it over a plain white tee when it get's cold to our pep rallys. Humph lol
And last but NOT least lol, remember when Tmobile sent me a new phone, it was February 23 (how do I link individual posts?? LOL) ANYWAY, I was still having problems with it. It locked up Saturday and I could hardly do ANYTHING. Well, turns out there is a problem with the phone. (if you have one and you have been having trouble, call and they will replace it) Here I was thinking maybe it kept messing up because it did too much lol, internet, email, organizer, camera phone lol, but nope, so come Wednesday, gone will be my beloved Tmobile MDA (that they no longer carry) I will now have a TMOBILE DASH.
So YAY! Alrighty guys that is IT for me! Have a great day, I have GOT to get off of here and get ready for Church!
