Before I put up pictures, I want to thank my friends for their enthusiastic support ~ Sandy, Selena, Lauri, Heather, Tammy, Eva, Cindy, Sharon, Angel, Debbie, Geri, Gini, Deirdre, Vincetta, Chris, Katie, Kelly, and Angela.
Not only were you there for me, but you bolster my confidence to develop my art further ~ trying new techniques and methods of design.
I must thank my family....my Kiki and Schotzie who are so beautiful from the inside to the outside. Without your help and support this event would not have been born.
Kiki, you outdid yourself with your gorgeous meat and cheese board and Pink Lemonade cake.
(silly me....I forgot to take pictures of our buffet set-up!! )...but here's what the little food signs looked like, and they were clipped to wooden spools like this:
Schotzie, you manned the check out table and kept things running smoothly.
The love of my life, Ron, who kept the dishwasher stacked and chatted up the ladies ~ some he knew, others just met.
And the payoff was... these three most important people in my life CLEANED EVERYTHING up for me!! I couldn't ask for more.
Lastly, a big "thank you" to my friends Rosemary and Rachelle for their pre-event orders...SO exciting to receive these after posting some pix to Facebook on Friday!!
Well, as they say...."On with the show!"
And I have one more, very important tidbit to share with you....I am the very LUCKY winner of Fran's Giveaway!! You can find her at thebaglady.blogspot.com The uber-generous Fran sent me the most amazing box filled with these wonderful goodies...
|Sweet Fran remembered that I LOVE Dots, from an altered bottle swap many moons ago! The Jiffy plant is in her hometown, and there's a definite "chicken" theme going on!|
|one of Fran's passions is creating Prims ~ dolls and their wardrobes. This is one of her darling creations.|
|loved everything, especially the sweet little white hen she created!|
