Welcome again, friends and friends of friends!
14 today-largest group yet!! All set up and ready to go… one more time!
What was I thinking?! I knew scheduling four open house studio play-dates, two weekends in a row could possibly be a tad over-ambitious, but never did I expect to be this exhausted! After cleaning up Saturday’s party and setting up for Sunday’s event, I went home thinking, there’s no way I can do this again tomorrow!!
But it seems once I turn the key and enter this wonderful space, I am instantly energized!
Time to rally!
Aprons on, paint brushes in hand, well, that’s all I need- I am instantly revived!
Meet kindred spirit Pilar and her beautiful daughters Angela and Melissa.
and her good friend, Chris
(now, also my new best friend!) Chris had such a good time she wants to volunteer over here! It was a pleasure to get to know you, Chris and I’ll be taking you up on that generous offer!
Angela, Melissa and her friend Dee. Nothing like a good chat while engrossed in creativity!
Dee and Cheryl… deep in concentration, then there’s Barbie and Sandy!
My very dear friend and CPA, Christy – blessed with both sides of the brain… I know!…
How is that possible!?
Thanks for making the trek from Mt. Dora on a Sunday and for bringing your friend Jeanne!
Sally you are adorable! Another dear friend of many years, skilled in both creativity and math. I’m in awe! Thank you for bringing your friend, Gay and our friend, Cheryl!
You know you’ve got good friends when two of your most talented artist buddies show up!
Thank you for coming, Carolyn and Vicki!
Ok, back to work!
No one gets out of here before the group picture!
Cheryl, Sally, Gay, Me, Chris, Christy, Pilar, Melissa, Angela, Jeanne, Dee, Sandy, Barbie, Carolyn,Vicki
Whew! Thank you all for coming! I hope you will come back for more and help me spread the word. I just want to continue to share my knowledge and my space and have a good time.
After these two weekends of fellowship and creativity, I’m pretty sure it can happen!
A special thanks to my wonderful friend Linda who worked her butt off filling paint trays, changing dirty water, laying out the food and refreshments and helping me to clean up and set up four of these events, two weekends in a row!! Still making memories after all these years!
