I don't know quite where to begin, except to say, that I am still smiling and thinking of my time teaching, laughing, and meeting new friends at the Reflections Event. It truly was an experience I will never forget. I have been thinking so much about those that I met...their love and friendship and support means so much more than they'll ever know. I enjoyed talking with them while I taught...getting to know them and appreciating them for the wonderful women they are. I remember names such as Mary, Collette (perhaps she spells it with a K?), Cybil (perhaps she spells her name with an S :)), Annie, Suzy, Katie, Mara May, Susan, Debi, Deena, Kim and Kim, Christine, Cheryl, the Las Vegas girls :), Maggie, Elena, Karen, Stephanie.....I wish I could remember the names of each person I met....but believe me, I will remember your beautiful faces, and the warm welcome and friendship that you shared with me. I hope we get to meet again.
I brought home the sweetest, shabbiest, dreamy craft tote I've ever laid eyes on made by Kim Caldwell...such a treat to meet her. Thank you Kim for chatting with me and making me smile. My bag's name is Josette....and she has a prominent place in my home :) You MUST check out Kim's bags....words can't begin to describe them.
Tonight, I smell fresh cut green grass and baby lotion as my husband is out mowing the lawn in the dark :), and my little one has just had her bath and smells just as sweet as can be. I hear crickets and silence and it feels so wonderful to be home, although Newport Beach has to be one of the most beautiful places I've ever visited....I am completely enchanted with Balboa Island and feel the need to leisurely stroll down each quaint little street.
Before I head off to catch up on many things, I'd love to share a card I created for Emma's Paperie. While I was creating it, I was planning on donating it to the silent auction that took place over the weekend to raise money for heart disease....such a wonderful cause and it made creating it much more meaningful. Step-by-step photos and instructions along with a supply list can be found on HERE on the Emma's Paperie blog along with many beautiful projects from the other designers.
It's wonderful to talk with you...hope you all had a wonderful week and that this one is off to a sweet start.
