HOWDY YA'LL!!!!!!!!!!That's Texan Talkin... I wanted to say that I have had a BUSY week. Last Saturday was Karen Valentines amazing WHERE BLOGGERS CREATE II PARTY & I have not even finished visiting those listed in the A's section. I had the GRANDS all weekend & add in Fathers Day & there just wasn't time to get'r done! I will work through that list until I visit each & everyone of you & I hope you will all visit my studio too.

After cleaning the studio, I was able to use my workspace for creating goodies for TWO (of 3) of the swaps for Les Sirenes Art Event. Both swaps are in the mail & I am moving on to my next project... GOING TO PAPER COWGIRLS ART RETREAT! Held locally it will be a piece of cake with no travel involved. I am thrilled to be sharing a room with my buddy Lisa of Tarnished & Tattered (she will be teaching/vending at the event). I am thrilled to have a chance to sit in the hotel & see the newest Somerset Magazine where Lisa has been PUBLISHED for the very first time. CONGRATULATIONS my sweet friend... it is well deserved for you are an amazing artist.
Here's the new belt I bought to wear to the event. Pretty snazzy don't ya think?

I bought the belt (& my Cowgirl Boots seen below) at a wonderful little shop in The Stockyards in Fort Worth Texas. The name of the store is SASSY PANTZ & is owned by two very sweet sisters named Candice & Holly. If you are ever in the area be sure & visit The Stockyards for it is a really fun place.

And my sweet little purse sent to me as a BIRTHDAY GIFT (see that POST HERE) from my sweet friend Sandy Navarro will be goin to the event for sure.

And of course I'll be wearin my awesome boots from Hubby (another BDay present). Sooooooooooooo many of you have commented on my boots & how much you love them. They are made by Corral Boots & are part of the Vintage Line. Call Holly or Candice at Sassy Pantz if you are interested in having them ship you a pair. When I bought my belt last week Candice said they had just received a shipment & already sold over half of them. Here's the info for the store: Sassy Pantz 140 E. Exchange St #112 Fort Worth, TX 76164. And the phone is 817-624-8188 Good Luck on gettin yourself a pair! Cowgirl UP! Now, I have to get in there & "whip up" my skirt I want to wear Saturday. Come back for some photos of the event. And a BIG THANK YOU for the photo used above thanks to my friend KIM at Paris Cowgirl. Have a great weekend.

Very pretty belt but I am so not a cowgirl. While I love to look at the photos of the open lands of the west I love the canyons of the eastern cities. I am a city girl at heart!!
Great Post!
