Hello Bloggerettes!

Mary from The Curious Quilter is having a giveaway.

is having a 5 Fall Favorites Link Party and Giveaway.

WHEW! Got all that? The Bloggerette Sisters are one busy bunch of gals!! I thought I'd start posting pictures of their events. Do you like that little touch? :)

Saturday I had the BEST day! 
I got to meet a fellow Bloggerette 
and just a wonderful and incredibly talented gal.  
Sandy from SMN DESIGNS!
OMG! We have so much in common!!! :)
We didn't even know we were "neighbors" until recently.
So we met up at Victoria Gardens -
our beautiful outdoor mall -
(and I do mean BEAUTIFUL)
which was a halfway point for both of us.
We had a GREAT lunch at California Pizza Kitchen
and gabbed and gabbed for almost 3 hours!
It was a beautiful day in So Cal and 
I could've sat there for another 3 hours!  
Sandy has invited me to be in a 
private swap with seven other gals
and we got to talk about that and just exchange
ideas. BOY! The pressure is on!
Sandy's work is BEYOND beautiful and so
is the art of all the other gals. 
Sigh. I was so honored to be included.
Man - do I have a lot of work to do.
I really need to get my creative juices FLOWING!

Make sure you check out the Rosette Swap Blog Party at Gypsy Brocante on Sept 1st. Thank you to Jill for hosting such a FUN event. And I am now going to brag that I get to meet Jill this coming Friday! She is a Jersey Girl coming to So Cal to teach a class and I couldn't sign up fast enough! So Joy and I will be headed to Escondido on Friday! I cannot even imagine the traffic ... but I don't care! I get to give Jill a hug in PERSON! WHOO HOOOO!!!!!!!! She is teaching a FABULOUS jewelry class - OMG I can't wait!

And be sure to check back here on 9-2. I'm having a Bloggerette Swap and will release the details on that day. In the meantime - be looking for a cigar box! :)

Have a wonderful week everyone!

Maria said...

Hi Karen,

Thanks for putting up my swap on your messages post, your cigar swap sounds like fun, but just a question.
Can the cigar box be a wooden craft cigar box as I would love to take part in your swap coming up?


Theresa said...

You are one busy gal! So much to keep up with:) Sounds like you ladies had a fun time and another one coming up this weekend! I am still playing catch-up from my weekend away!

Love you bunches!

Charlene said...

Sandy is FABULOUS isn't she? I ADORE HER!!!! She & I met in Dallas at one of the events at The Church & it was history. BF's! Just kind of that comfortable/known you forever kind of thing we had in Savannaha. IT WAS SO MUCH FUN TO TALK TO YOU ON THE PHONE WHILE YOU GUYS WERE AT LUNCH TOGETHER! Darn I wish I could have been there! The swap is going to be awsome. I'm a bit intimidated with all of the talent that she has put together. How's your feet? HUGS! Charlene
