The COUNTDOWN is on...

we had a packing party(the Mama Loot Bags...250) last night with a bunch of great friends...THANK YOU all...including my darling husband who I know could have been working on his "PLAN of change"...but he helped us.
BUT first we HAD to get some Spicy Thai food in... and naow down on some great flavours!
a quick clean up...and to packing we went...round and round the table, adding vendors and other business owners marketing material...
2 hours later...we had this...a sea of blue(bags donated from our local Toy Store...thanks Scholars Choice!)...feels good to get it over with.
I then had to say goodbye to this wee fella...I finished him at the weekend, his name is Pickle...and his owner Nathanael(lovely name).
Sarah came to pick him up...Sarah is an acquaintance whom I've known for 3 years now and I really hope I will see more of...she's a very talented Graphic Designer...and has a Blog called Lucky Cat Design...which you must go and check out. She started it about a year ago...and I really can't believe how she doesn't have the followers she should have...her blog is a wealth of information.
This was her intro line to what her Blog is about:
"I've created this blog to provide expert advice on how to effectively market your business as well as to keep you up to date on the comings and goings of Lucky Cat Design."
I can't wait to browse and read her posts one evening...GREAT WORK Sarah!!!
AND I want to introduce all of my regular blog buddies to her, because I know she has been browsing our she knows I have met great creative and inspiring people our there in BlogWorld...(she's right...I have)
Show some love friends!
Anyway...if I get a chance tomorrow I will post...but it's looking very slim...the Mamas and Chicks Show is on's been a CRAZY time...
Hugs to y'all!

Hi Char!
I was visiting PilliPilli this mornnig and she showcased your beautiful artwork of her on her sheep and the lovely rooster that you painted for her. Oh sweetie they are just exquisite. What beautiful work you do.

Good-luck at the Mamas and Chicks show, although I am sure you won't need it looking around at all of the beautiful, talented things that you have painted. You are just wonderful sweetie, just wonderful.

I have signed up to follow your blog. I can't wait to see what you share next. Please stop by and say hi. I would be so honored if you would sign up to follow my blog as well.

Country hugs sweetie, Sherry
