Back from Art, Paperie and Pleasantries 2009

I am back from the "pleasantries" with a wallet a lot lighter but with bags filled with goodies (I will post pictures of them tomorrow)

This is Rose McHone , a wonderful artist creating the most beautiful items. She made the tea cups (pin cushions) above. I am the happy owner of one (picture tomorrow).

My daughter came with me (helping me carrying all the bags). She was the one that convinced me to go. I woke up with a migraine and after medication all I wanted to do was sleep... so had it not been for my lovely daughter I would not have met....
with the lovely Michelle from ZNE and loved the goodies at her table...
Traci Bautista was signing her book Collage Unleashed with Lisa Kettell (her book Altered Art Circus) both posing for my lousy iphone camera). I already have both of their books :) and recommend them to all of you. It was a true honor to meet both of these girls... they do such amazing work.

Like I said tomorrow I will post more pictures of all the goodies I bought, the door price I won :) and some art by Lisa Kettell. Tonight I am too tired to type so I am off to bed.

Hi Jeanette!

Love the teacup pincushions. Also love your "quilt collage" of your art in the post below! The egg photo
as part of it is a nice contrast.

love, kelee
