Home Again

It was a blast!

Although my  
adventure ended a day early due to illness,
it was still a wonderfully memorable experience,
and I had a blast.

One of the absolute highlights was FINALLY
meeting this junking goddess diva...

That's my junkin' sista from another mother,
I've loved her since I began stalking her blog three years ago,
and next year, I plan to get to know
my long-distance buddy better by getting into
some certified junkin' mayhem with her!

The lovely Magnolia Pearl folks were a joy to work with,
and my two days spent with them were so much fun.
Thank you, my sweet friends!

I also had the chance to attend the wonderful Bloggers Luncheon
held at Royer's Cafe, which featured an inspiring talk from
my precious friend, Carol Hicks Bolton.

Carol was a revelation to listen to,
as she shared her design philosophy with those of us
lucky enough to attend.

It was also fun to see that my photos are being used
on the advertising materials for Carol's new shop,
I'll share those with you soon!

And finally, in super exciting news,
I am pleased and thrilled to announce that I have been
added to the editorial staff of  
as a regular contributor!

This is such an honor,
and if you haven't subscribed yet, you really should.
It's chock full of all those things
