Do you know how good this is? This is a white chocolate, macadamia nut, cheese cake with caramel topping. It falls into a category of, "one of the best things in life". Yummy!

Do you know what this is?

It falls into a category of, "one of the most fun days in my life".
Tinsell and Whimsy Sue and I planned for six weeks to attend this show. Actually, I don't know too much about it. I am just looking forward to hanging out with a really creative friend for a day.

Driving over, Sue's asking me names. Names of artists. Well, here's the scoop. Sue's new to blogging. She knows names, I only know alias'. You know, how you all introduce yourself in blogland.
So ....the names go to these alias' who are amazing artists, who's work I've now admired for this past year. There they stand in person!
Yep, this day was second best to meeting Bob Mackie!

Here's some yummies from the show.

OH my Gosh...Lisa! aka A Whimsical Bohemian and founder of One World One Heart .

I had been looking forward to meeting her and she is just as COOL as I thought she might be.
She's posing with the effervescent, Donna O"Brian aka The Ribboned Crown.
Without every having met Donna before I can tell you I have a feeling she's quite mischievous.

Sylvia Anderson with my buddy Sue...see Ulla's necklace that she had just purchased and the bat circling her head ready to perch in her hair?

This paint pallet you may recognize from Somerset magazine. This was created by Connie Govea Stuart, a Director's Circle Artist. Connie isn't blogging yet, therefore has the time to create AMAZING artwork.

Terisa it was such a pleasure meeting you! You have the best smile! And what a delightful post! You are as sweet as that yummy cheesecake!! So glad you and Sue came to visit our little neck of the woods at the show. I can't wait to read what the rest of your day held. I had so much fun Saturday and I look forward to seeing and maybe working with you soon! Hugs to you...Iva

Thanks so much for the visit. I could have spent HOURS at that lovely event but with two 4 year olds running around outside it didn't allow for leisurely visits. I imagine you know all about that! Were you a vendor that I somehow missed? I couldn't have been that rushed could I? Isn't Ulla amazing? She's introduced me to so many amazing people. I just adore her - and her little bat babies!Anyhow, I hope to attend (or participate) in more shows with such amazing women. What an inspirational day. In fact, I spent the entire day in my studio blazing through "stuff" because of the ripple effect! Hope to meet you in the future!

Great to meet you. Terisa :)

Oh Man! I would have loved to have gone to that show. We don't have any like that in my area, that I know of. Those are neat- the bat necklaces! I know someone that would LOVE to have one. I'll see if I can find one for her!
Wonderful that you got to meet your fellow craftians! Fun to be had! Kudos!

Isn't Lisa fun? I was lucky enough
to travel with Lisa and a group to Sedona a few months back.
All the wonderful crafts you posted...I wish I were in California for that!

I wanted to go to this event, but with my crazy schedule I wasn’t able to. Thanks for sharing your photos! I felt like I was there.


Colleen said...

So happy you came with sue...or did sue come with you? You guys didn't get into any trouble after you left did you? I could see it in your eyes. Thank you so much for giving our little show such an amazing post. It was a great day and even better because you visited.

I can only imagine what an incredible day that must have been--such top of the line artists all in one place! Your work would also be perfect in a show like that--maybe next time?
Thanks, Terisa, for sharing your pics. I'm excited to see the rest of them...Marilyn:)

Oh, Terisa, you are so lucky to have attended this event. So many wonderful artists, and so many wonderful treasures and what a great desert. I agree with you this sounded like such a yummy event. Speaking of events, I posted today about Project Blogway. See you tomorrow. Karen
