what a week!

it seems like i’ve been away for EONS!  i spent the better part of yesterday traveling & i finally got home earlier this afternoon…can i say, whew?!  as soon as i got home, i started a hot bath & soaked in it for a very long time. then i took a rather long nap.  i was that exhausted. 

i just uploaded a TON of pix of my FAB trip out east onto my computer…but i’m still feeling a bit tired & jetlagged…i promise, tho, i will post my pix soon.  i just wanted to surface & let you know that i’m back 🙂 .

it was wicked awesome to meet my soul sister, melanie (aka melba) & her sweet family.  she & her family were such gracious & hospitable hosts…it was sad to leave them behind…but i know that i will be back to visit them  again soon!  melanie posted some wonderful pix of our weekend over at her blog…go check it out 🙂  

it was fantastic to meet up with another dear friend, jes & her mom…i wish we had longer to visit!  but, i know that i will be seeing her real soon…pls. click on her name highlighted above to check out some of her pix of the weekend…

i also met & got to know kari, better known as artsy mama, this weekend as well.  she is another lovely kindred soul (& from the midwest, no less) & her works are, can i say,  FABULOUS in person?!  we had such a fun time bonding…us midwest girls had to stick together, ya know…hehehe…

at the creative bazaar, i also met other fab indie artists as well as other bloggers (like these delightful & lovely sisters, jamie & shannon, & also another midwest gal, jana) and/or fans of blogging.  check out these blog posts to see what others thought about the show: karen & melissa.   it certainly was a trip filled with fun, laughter, shopping & connecting! 

i promise to post my pix soon…i’m getting tired again now & it is back to work (waaaah!) tomorrow.  so stayed tuned…pix to follow.  just click on the above links to tide you over 🙂
