Hello From Adorn ME!!!!!

I am having an absolute BLAST!!!!!!!!!!! I have met some of the most amazing PEOPLE only to be topped off by the fact that they are each AMAZING artists. It is like Alice falling into WONDERLAND! I have never been surrounded by so much creativity all in one place. Sorry to say I can not download any photos because I did not bring my computer but, I am using my roommate Melissa's MAC to do this post. Anyway... I wanted to share with you one of my NEW FRIENDS (& I HAVE MADE SOOOOOOOOOO VERY MANY NEW FRIENDS I CAN'T WAIT TO INTRODUCE YOU TO) blogs so you can go & visit to see a little bit about ADORN ME! I want to introduce you to Rice Freeman Zachary who is one of the most creative, imaginative, free spirited sweeties around. Rice & her darling husband Earl are here to take photographs & do work on a new book they are writing about Art Retreats & Events. I'm sure you have seen their work in books as well as magazines like Somerset & Stampington. Rice & Earl have been in many of the classes & events I have been in while here. There is a video clip of me using a torch in Diana Frey's class on Rice's blog. What a HOOT!!!!! Thank you for capturing that little bit of my special time for me sweetie!!!!!! Go check it out & see some of the other things taking place at ADORN ME! To visit Rice at her blog Voodoo Cafe CLICK HERE

Tonight is Vendor Night & I am very excited. I know there will be much $$$$ going out of the wallet as I wander down isle after isle of tables full of wonder!!!! Oh how I wish each & everyone of you could be here with me. In fact... I wish you had all joined us this whole week. Start planning for next year! It has been a once in a lifetime wonder for this "New Kid on the Block" & I want to thank each of you! I leave for home tomorrow & have soooooooooo much to share. Come back soon! HUGS!

I wondered who was the bright orange-hair girl? What a hoot, I was wondering who they were. OMG, can you believe vendor night? I spent my next two paychecks, but I have a smile on my face!!!!
I did just now see your photo on the blog but don't think I met you. We probably passed in the hall a dozen times! Wasn't it a great retreat? Marcy
