So much love....

The shop update is complete. See all the goodies here! Thanks so much to those of you that have already made purchases. Your support is unwavering and so very much appreciated:)My head is still spinning from this past weekend. It's so hard to even put it all into words. So much love and support for my art and my blog. Amazing! First I had such a fabulous cheering section of everyone here in blogland boosting me up, helping motivate me. Then I got to the show and so so so so many people commented on my blog and my work. They said such amazing things as, "you are so inspiring", "you are really thinking out of the box," "I love your blog" and many, many other fantastic comments. It's so humbling, so uplifting, just down right fantastic! Thank you all for everything!I wanted to share with you an artist that was at the show that I was so incredibly inspired by. She does the work pictured above and below. Her name is Davonne and she doesn't have a blog or web site...I know, she must get one! Her company is called Saint Nicks and Sticks. She makes the most fabulous pumpkins (seen here) and santas. She was such a delightful person to talk with and I knew that you all would appreciate her work. She can be reached at davonne@iw.netSpeaking of Halloween, the much anticipated Oct. issue of Country Living magazine is now on newsstands. I am quite pleased with the issue. There is a very cool article with wonderful pictures featuring Bruce Elsass's extraordinary collection of vintage Halloween.

Also noticed that on Mary Engelbreit's site she has some teasers of her Oct. issue of Home Companion looks fabulous! Love seeing Halloween stuff popping up all over the place!

Cheers!

People love to see beautiful, inspiring creations made by someone who really believes in and cares about what and how she crafts. Your heart is in it and that's a super valuable commodity right there. I really am pleased about your wonderful success.

Both of those magazines arrived in the mail today so I am planning on spending the evening perusing them. So happy for you that the Junk weekend was successful for you!

I just got my Country Living last week, and my ME Home Companion yesterday. Both are so good!! Love the October issues of all the fun decorating magazines. Also, I really enjoyed visiting the booth you showed in this post. I nearly bought the pumpkin guy wearing the quilted robe! They were all so cute and I loved all the colors. If only I had had unlimited monetary supplies while I was there. Yes, that would have been fun ;o)

I can't believe I got so behind on your blog. Wow! Your booth looked fantastic and I'm not sure how you kept from spending all your profits with all that cool stuff surrounding you. Oh, it must have been a total blast!
