Wonderful, Wonderful!!

I must begin this post with the deepest, heartfelt "thank you," to all my friends and family ~ near and far.  Yesterday was my second Trunk Show and the joy, fellowship, and support for my artistic muse far surpassed anything I could have imagined!

So, before I put up the pictures, I wish to thank everyone who's "liked" my work on Facebook, continues to support and comment on my blog, and sends me emails of sweet thoughts about my muse.  Your love and support inspires me to continue doing what I love so very much.  Thank you from the bottom of this SO grateful heart!!

I would like to thank those who couldn't attend but were inspired by my work and pre-ordered creations ~ I love you and thank you from the bottom of my overflowing heart!
Anna Marie (my dear sil) ~ Jennifer ~ Fran ~ Nancy W.

And those who were able to spend time with me at the show ~ you have my heart!

At Casa Hess any celebration will always include yummy food ~ our menu du jour:
~ Sliders - (cheeseburger, hamburger, jalepeno), pasta salad, ramen slaw, fruit kebobs, bruschetta, veggies/dip ~ Thank you my Kiki for your generous donation and presentation of your dishes ~ Thank you my beloved Ron for manning the grill~

 ~ brownie bites, assorted cookies ~

~spa water and iced tea~

~white sangria ~

Here are the "other" goodies.... ~Thank you sweet Schotzie for being my cashier and for providing the sangria~

Happy shoppers....

A special "thank you" goes out to my "Phoenix girls," Ashley and Lacey, who not only made the trip from Phoenix, but also made it Cosette's (Cosey) first road trip!!!  Blessings!!!

So my dear ones, that's it for this week....I'm exhausted ~ emotionally and physically, but it's alllll GOOD!

For now it's back down the rabbit hole to resume work(?).  I'm taking a number of uber-fabulous classes next month so you will be seeing new projects.  I will be posting them on my Karen's Monday Musings Facebook page.

Don't forget, if you live out of town I will ship for free during the month of September.

There's another Trunk Show on the horizon, just in time for the holidays, so stayed tuned.
Oh, and one coming soon in Phoenix!

Asking blessings for you and yours this week, and as always, xoxo's from me to you!

Oh my Dear. I can't believe I missed the show. I am so sorry. But I am thrilled that you were such a success! I can see by the offerings that you were a busy busy little bee. If you have half a chance maybe we could chat and I can take a look at the left behinds? :)
All the best my friend :)
Talk with you soon :)

WOWEE dear Karen, you are a creative dynamo! What a fun fun time this must have been.

You deserve a rest, but the energy you get after such an event is so inspiring it spurs you on...doesn't it!

Take care and keep having fun and creating beautiful things!
