So Glad You Came

Just wanted to say thanks for coming out today for the 4 Friends Sale.  It was such fun seeing my friends (actually more than 4), that came out today.  I know there are lots of options on such a beautiful sunny day, but I do really appreciate those of you who were able to take time to come out and show your support. 

Here are the 4 Friends on the eve of the sale.

If you have “events” at your home, you know how much it takes to “pull it all together”.  I could not possibly do all that has to be done to get things ready around here by myself. 

As “show time” approached, Dave the Driver, became Dave the Move Everything Guy, my big boys showed up providing muscle and height where needed.   The Queen of Tarte turned into Cinderella/Wonder Woman, chasing down dust bunnies and spreading magic.  The day of the sale, my sister Toni arrived early helping with  last minute details. She stayed until the end, doing anything that needed to be done, especially keeping things a little bit organized in the cash register… (Sometimes I am having so much fun visiting, I forget I am suppose to be selling things…)   So to all of you,

 a great big thank you!

I’m looking forward to a couple of days of playing “catch up".  With 3 shows in 3 weeks, it is an understatement to say the house is trashed!  I am looking forward to getting out and about looking for treasures and getting them ready for upcoming shows!

I am also so excited that I will be attending Terri Brushes Art Camp in Cannon Beach Oregon.

The dates are April 29,30 and May 1 and 2. This retreat has been sold out for several months.  One of the students is unable to attend for health reasons, 1 space has recently  become available.  If you are interested in attending an amazing art retreat, check it out here and join us for the best time ever!
