I forgot to show you the atcs I got back during the trade. The two on the left were made and given to me by Linda (Stampmaiden), the 3rd one from the left is from the "Honorable Mention" winner, and the one on the right is from a friend, Mary . . .
After the convention, Linda Bucci (the Linda I brought to the show for the 1st time) invited me back to her home for dinner. Well, I don't know if I can really say she "invited" me. I DID sort of ask Bob (her husband) if he would bbq some steaks for us again *hee hee*. Well, he did, and dinner was delicious. Thanks again Bob!
Look at the gorgeous orchids growing in Bob and Linda's backyard . . .
This is Marley - Bob and Linda's *baby*. . .
Marley posing for me! . . .
Bob giving me a demo in wire-wrapping. Thanks Bob! . . .
Well, that's it for today folks. I sure hope I don't have to "catch up" like THIS again! That was a lot of writing for one day - THREE BLOG POSTS! Phewwww!
Have a wonderful week ahead!
