This Past Weekend in Review and Upcoming Events

I've been asked to be a guest artist on one of the challenge blogs this month (March 17th), so last Friday night I started working on that project.  I'll post on March 16th, as the blog originates in Luxembourg, so there is about a 9-hour time difference for me here on the West Coast.


Saturday afternoon I received a box at my door from "you know who".  Got this really cool artist apron . . .
And the best book for bedtime reading - at least that's where I spent my time with it Saturday . . .
I waited to purchase this book so I could get a signed copy from The Man himself *smiles* . . .
And in my mailbox the same day . . .
This was a surprise RAK (Random Act of Kindness) artist trading card from my blog buddy Deb Famularo over at Sparkling Scrapbooks.  I included her note in this post so you would know I was telling the truth when I tell you that this is only her SECOND atc that she's ever made!   Yep, isn't it GORGEOUS?!


Thank you Tim, Mario (he's the reason my book and apron got packed, shipped and arrived safely) and Deb for a nice art-filled weekend!


On Sunday I started playing with my new Distress Inks.  Ooooooo I just LOVE all of the new colors!  


It was back to "the day job" on Monday and more of the same through Thursday this week.  Friday - off work.  And then there's Saturday . . .


You know where I will be! *smiles*  Will you be there as WELL??????

I haven't read Tim's book completely through yet but I will soon and the apron is wonderful. I love the ATC. Have fun in Carson.

Don't you just love getting mail? Well, not bills, but I love packages. And you received some really cool ones this weekend, lucky you! Have fun at the show Sherry!

Sweet! I got mine from that man himself when I took his class at CHA...but it doesn't have a personalized dedication or apron like yours. Lucky!

I might try to sneak over to the show on Sunday. Hope to see you there.

Hi Sherry
Hadn't checked into your blog in awhile. I don't know how you do it all with your day job!
I didn't know Tim had a new book out, you lucky girl! I bet it is wonderful. Still think about what a wonderful time we had on the cruise.

Love the ATC, what a work of art!
Love your blog, I always find out what is new! LINDA

Yes, a day with mail that has a Prescott return address is a GREAT mail day.
Enjoy the book (I'm still going through it....slowly), and have a wonderful weekend.

what fun the apron is! ... I still haven't bought Tim's book yet - but it's on the list LOL.

I'm also loving the colors of the new Distress Inks ... I might have to vary from my inevitable Vinage Photo, Peeling Paint, and Faded Rose! LOL

Great ATC!

The book is awesome! I've read my a couple times already!
