Back!!!! Older, Tweeting, Teaching, Vending and Giving Away

Hello blogland! It's been so long since I last posted. I have been going through some personal stuff that I don't want to bore everyone with... the short and sweet of it is....I am back, doing well and have tons of stuff to update you on. Also, since I have been so neglectful of this blog, I feel like I should offer a giveaway to everyone and all who has been kind enough continue to read it. More details to follow.....

Firstly..Twitter! I have jumped on the bandwagon. Do you twitter? Drop me an email if so, so I can follow you.

Nextly.. older! I celebrated the big 36 on Friday. The world must
be turning faster. This one almost caught me off guard.



And.....Teaching!!!! Regalo Per Mi, next weekend May 3 at the wonderful Art, Paperire and Pleasantries event. Learn how to create this sweet little Spring Birdie in an egg ornament....

Also... vending...
some of these guys at Art, Paperire and Pleasantries. (Sunday teaching, vending both days, May 2-3) Are you in the Bay area? Come check out my table. I have crafted over 50 new pieces for this fair and will be taking an extended break after they sell out. So come and get em while they are hot! :-) The event takes place at the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton, CA from 12-5 Saturday and Sunday. Mention that you read my blog and you get a 10% discount on anything in my booth.



Finally... giving away! Leave a comment or follow me on twitter, (or my blog) and you'll be entered to win a sweet Spring pixie, just like this one...


only you choose the colors and themes. I'll draw the winners after I get back from Pleasanton next week!

Thanks (once again) for hanging in here with me. Happy Spring!

Yeah, I just started following you before you left. I didn't know if you just didn't update often or what. I love all of your stuff and wish I were in CA so I could come and see it in person!

I cannot believe it! We just moved from Livermore, Pleasanton's next door neighbor! I would have come just to meet you! Oh well. Hope it is wonderful!

snippetgirl said...

OH, SOOO glad to see you back!! I was excited to see your update pop up on my dashboard tonight. I hope all is well with you now :). I am a fellow just turned 36 year old too....how is that possible?? Time flies.
I can't believe you have 50 pieces ready for that show. I sure wish i lived nearby so i could come support you and see all of your wonderful creations!! I know you are going to sell out in a flash!
Enjoy it!
Please count me in for the giveaway. That is incredibly kind and generous of you!
Many happy wishes to you xoxo,
