this past weekend i was in st. paul at the creative connection. i didn't know what to expect from being a vendor at the marketplace but it was wonderful and i met the best women eveR! My booth mates included lesley from odoodo originals who had me in stitches with her spunky wit, stephanie rubiano who makes the most beautiful antique collage/encaustic images and janine from uppercase along with Tif of dottie angel. If you haven't subscribed to Uppercase yet, what????? it is so well done and the woman is a design hero of mine...serious talent! and Ms. Tif...ohhhhh words cannot describe how sweet, sincere and original this gal is....dottie angel book is a MUST OWN! thanks to everyone who bought a little BIG pants original and those who gave me such kind words and compliments. it really means alot!
