Living Graciously, Artfully, Frugally.

Consciously taking notice of the gifts each day places in our path.

Omaha Bound!!!

By the time you read this the mural will be complete, (Money for Silver Bella Vendor Fair, yippee), I will have my first solo Lia Sophia show under my belt, (Money for next year? Tee Hee.) and I will be madly packing and list making and fretting about what I am forgetting!I will pack and unpack my craft totes, wonder what I can safely carry on the plane, carefully pack my remaining swaps and gifts and panic about the possibility of lost luggage. Not because of clothing mind you, but because I need that glue and glitter!
I have stitched and glued and embellished myself into a frenzy. The excitement has grown to a crescendo. By the time I board my flight my hubs will be glad to see me off for few days. Wednesday morning I will be winging my way to Omaha!
Seeing my girls Sandy and Jodie again, meeting some bloggers I think of as friends although we haven't actually met, and making the acquaintance of some friends yet to be, as well as creating and learning and general joy all rolled into one fabulous weekend. How lucky can a girl get?
I do feel privileged to be able to attend this great event once again. Thanks Teresa and all who work so hard to make this weekend perfect for us artsy gals. You are peaches!
I will be back next week, a little worse for wear, glitter in my hair and memories for a lifetime!

See you soon, P.
Pin It!
