Here is a picture of the collage I donated to the Candle Lighter's Gallery of Hope. The collage features a picture of my Daddy when he was itty bitty along with an arrow head he knapped, and trade beads from his black powder rendezvous days.

Still waiting...

I called Firefly Studio Wednesday and it looks like we are still about two weeks out on getting our platters fired due to the back-log from Splatters. Oh well, that means they are doing a great job helping the Centers for Youth and Families raise money, right?

I'll keep you posted and get pictures of the finished platters posted ASAP.

Yes, I will be the fairest of them all when my lovely new pendent arrives from Remarkably Red!

It looks gorgeous in this picture but I've seen it in person and it is even more fair. And if that wasn't reason enough for me to be happy, Charlisa now has her own blog! Check out Through the Clouded Glass.

Oh what fun!

When I picked up supplies Friday, Beth told me we were the first to have a Splatters Platters party. Both Tiffany and Beth are waiting to see how things went for us. I am very happy to report that the party was a big success! I hope everyone had as much fun as I did painting, talking, and eating. The only sad note for the day is that Anne was not able to stay with us. Our love and thoughts are with you and your family, Anne! I am glad you are still able to paint a platter so you don't feel left out. I'm posting results from this morning's efforts. Well, the painting that is. The efforts that went into the delicious potluck are sadly not shown but were very yummy! Thank each and every one of you for making this a successful fundraiser for the Centers and for contributing to a wonderful Saturday for me! It was an awesome day. : )
