Dessert from the Ree Drummond Luncheon
Me and the back of Heather Bailey. She wanted me to get her hair out of her face before this picture.
Umm, ok. Do you think it is weird that I kept the hair? :)
Amanda, Me, and Heather
Heather was so beautiful and gracious even though
I was acting like an absolute moron.
Amanda was horrified, Heidi thought it was funny.
Me and Ree Drummond (The Pioneer Woman).
She was so genuine and kind. I spent a little time chatting with her the next day
when she came shopping in the handmade market. She was very real.
Amy Butler was the keynote speaker at the gala event/dinner.
(The swag bag out of the new Moda fabric is awesome.)
I had made a bunch of rag dolls to sell at The Handmade Market,
one of them out of Amy Butler fabric.
I decided to give the doll to Amy.
Nerdy, yes. Desperate, yes. Stalker-ish, maybe.
But it was better than standing there mindlessly gushing
like I had been (to everyone else) all night.
She liked it.
She had me sign it!
Paige, AMY BUTLER, rag doll, me, and Amanda
Me, AMY BUTLER, and Heidi
(every now and then we had someone else push the button
so she could be in the picture. Bless her heart.)
Amy Butler and Heather Bailey
(They are both very, very tall. Seriously, I am 5'9".
When we asked them for this picture was when we officially
crossed the line from adoring fans to freaks.)
Heidi, Marie of Make and Takes, Me, and Marie's darling friend/guest blogger Kami Bigler from NoBiggie.
Amanda, hard at work in the Kaari Meng jewelry class.
Amanda, Kaari Meng, Heidi
Kris Thurgood, Sharon Brower, Jacki Singer, Kim Christopherson
Kris and Kim (identical sisters) are the hosts of DIY dish
and the brains behind one of my favorite sites, http://www.youcanmakethis.com/.
These ladies were a blast to spend time with. We laughed until we cried,
and that was before the belly dancing started!
Kris and her treat.
