can't believe...

it's been so long since I last posted... Just haven't been able to work it in to the schedule...

sit back...I just made a loaf of pumpkin cream cheese layered bread...help yourself to a piece..this post is a bit LONG..LOL










....took a little trip out east...
leavin on a jet plane.....to Art-is-You...in Danbury, CT!



to meet up with some sweet peeps that I've only known online..and texts...seems like FOREVER...

love this pic of this sweet little lonely floating wisp of white...and it's little shadow...


I've been to New York only once before. When we deployed to Germany I flew in with my girls, Shannon and Kaleigh and Dani (in tummy) way back in 1984. (i don't travel much or well..lol) and at that time New York was so fogged in we couldn't see anything...This time I got to see the statue of Liberty!



...and New York City!


Sandee GRACIOUSLY offered to allow us to stay with her in her home for the extended weekend!!!!
I was to meet up with Tanya at the airport...(texted her from the plane that she would know me...because I was wearing BLACK shoes...and with that in mind..we found each other almost immediately..)

One of Sandee's handsome sons, David, picked us up from the airport...



look at that SMILE!!! WHAT A GREETING!

He drove us to meet up with SANDEE!!! look at these waiting arms!!!



almost to sandee's house! here is her exit!



ARRIVED!!!



Gary, Sandee's hubby...fixed up a most delicious meal...actually several meals!!!

and PETEE was the perfect furry host as well...



on friday...i took a class with the infamous Jenny and Aaron!





They are just as adorable in person as I imagined they would be!!!!!!!
My practice piece from their class...



and here is Taryn Reece from Naval Jelly studios...our instructor for our art dolls


and lots of silliness for fun...






Unfortunately my dollie did not travel well..and broke on the way home...

The leisure lunches and times with friends..known through round robins and their lucious art...but not face to face...
Got to meet Kimberly Moore!



...and TRISTAN! (It was like a meet and greet of CELEBRITIES!)



(I was in awe...can you tell? What a doofus face I was making! sheesh...)

there was lots of dancing....



and hugging....


in between!

On Sunday we traveled to the Elephant's Trunk Flea Market...the weather cooperated so nicely!



They even had giant elephant sized carts to transport shoppers FINDS!







...AND JUST LOOK!!! MEGAN!!! AND SWEET PIPPA AND HANDSOME CORBIN! What a wonderful time to meet up and meet them!



Sweet Danielle (she's one of my birthday twin's you know!) was also at the trunk and we got to meet for but a brief moment...and I got a bit sick...and had to abruptly leave...to sit for a moment...I didn't get pics of her..or get to talk much...ugh...

We were off to Megan's home...for a GOURMET lunch...







and ADORABLE PIPPA!



GROUP SHOT!!!



the weekend went so fast...that soon..in the early of a.m. I was heading home...





and look at my welcome home committee!



We've spent some time gathering leaves..they look so pretty in little vases...and each one looks handpainted don't they?!!!



as promised...here is my 2010 rendition for the halloween ornament swap...



Just before I left...I received this sweet laundry raggedy ann...that I had won when sweet maureen's hubby drew my name from a hat!!! Here she is all perched in her new home...on top of a vintage child's ironing board...ready to greet visitors to my studio!



And got some time to do a bit of creating...as well
...a couple of totes I made...








and a bracelet with matching earrings...



well...blogspot is saying that I may have trouble PUBLISHING this post...and as you can see from the date above..and seeing that today is actually FRIDAY THE 29TH...it has taken me a bit to get this all uploaded and written...so the next SCREAM you hear...round the world...could be that it DIDN'T PUBLISH...and in case it does...consider that scream...to be JOYFUL!

HUGZ til next time...
