    I love the pockets. This looks like such a fun event. If I weren’t 1,000 miles away, I’d drop in. Congratulations, I hope this show is a big success for you.


  3. Thanks so much my friends! I’ve been buried in the studio, so please forgive me for not coming out to play so much lately!!

    I’m not sure how I missed this…well, yes I do – it’s been busy at work and I haven’t had a chance to visit here at home. How cool, Linda!! You must be so stoked about this well deserved honor. Wish I could be there. You must report back on how your evening went. 🙂
