Petticoats & Parasols Art Event

You know that I told you one of the things I wanted to strive for in 2010 was KNOWLEDGE & I can tell you that I have started the year off with a bang in striving for this goal. As I told you in a previous post, I will be going to Resolutions of the Heart jewelry design class with Diane Cook this coming week & I am excited about this. While talking to Joanna back a couple of weeks ago she told me about an Art Event in Savannah, GA called Petticoats & Parasols. This is being put on by the beautiful Jennifer Hayslip. I WANTED TO GO but, was hesitant to spend the money knowing ADORN ME was approaching in March. But, then it was announced that none other than JO PACKHAM would be the key note speaker on Thursday night. THAT DID IT!!!! I HAD TO GO!!!! I asked "Honey" & he said OK! OH I AM OVER THE MOON EXCITED!!!!!!!!! And another fun thing about this event is that I will get to see Christine again as she is one of the teachers at the event. Christine & I met last April when we were in Diana Frey's Secret Shaker Doll Class. Can you hear me squealing with delight with all the fun events I have coming up? Thank you Joanna! Thank you Blogland for opening these doors for us to all network & find out about all the wonder out there. And thank you "Honey" for being the best & most understanding hubby in the whole world. You are MY HERO!

Oh, Charlene ~ You do have so many great events planned - Yay!! Wonderful classes and people to look forward to - I'm so happy for you. Of course, you'll be learning fabulous new things and having fun with great women - good for you. And bless your sweet husband for being so agreeable about it all.

I looked back at a few posts and have to just shriek with you about receiving your Blue Willow set from your friend - how very special she is and your set of dishes. Enjoy them and grin everytime you see them.

I so appreciate you stopping by my blog and leaving your sweet comments. You're so appreciated.

Have a Beautifully Blessed 2010....

Oh I would love to go. My Grandfather lives very close to Savannah. It's the big town where they go shopping! I'm am not a good car rider and it is about 6 hours from me. It looks like great fun!

Charlene,
Getting to know you is a blast. While I am working full time, you are living my life, lol. Seriously, I don't like to "fly" nearly as much as I like "road trips" and I do love Savannah. You flying off here and there is so exciting, that is what I meant about living my life, lol. I used to take all kinds of classes, and I remember how much fun that was, especially when the speaker is as great as J Packman and you connect with friends and learn new things! You better take lots and lots of photos and remember every detail to share with us. Give your hubby a big hug for being wonderful and encouraging you in your pursuits.

Wow girl, you are so busy with so many fun things. I can't wait to hear more. As you can see, I am still making my pink rounds and wanted to make sure I wished you a Happy Pink Saturday, Char

That's so wonderful! I'm very happy for you. I hope you have a wonderful time. Isn't it great to have an understanding supportive hubby? I love mine for the same reasons.
How is Reba doing? I hope she is still mending well. Give her a nice pat and a hug from me.
Blessings,
Charmaine.
