Once again -- I had a GREAT time in Phoenix.Maija and Ruth were my roommates again this year -- and we added Earlene into the mix too ! (Earlene doesn't have a blog -- so many people are using facebook to connect now).
Maija has moved to Colorado from Phoenix -- and she took this opportunity to connect with some friends while she was there. Michele Legler makes some awesome mosaic work. I wish that she had some with her for my to buy! Check out these Dia de Los Muertos cupcakes!
I wasn't so frugal in Phoenix though.... I bought some clothes there (supporting artists!) (oh, and to fully disclose... supporting independent stores :) and I bought some journals from Jane. (again -- supporting artists!)
You can buy one of Jane's Number notebooks here!
JoAnna Pierotti has moved to Phoneix. She took Ruth and I to a favourite store -- Saints and Sirens, which also houses Frilly Frocks. thanks JoAnna! We all spent too much :) Joanne makes fabulous mixed media dolls. She brought us back to her home and we saw her workspace. Sigh. I really need to make mine more inspiring ...
JoAnna teaches around the country -- take a class from her if you can! If you can't get to where she is teaching, take an online class! I'm going to take this one:
