i have some of my booth pics to share with you but first,
i met heather bailey last night!
i warned you that i would geek out about fabric designers this week – so here i go!
she was super sweet and engaging, willing to chat for a bit – so sweet!
here we are together in the handmade market, after a long day of setup and the early bird preview .
i knew the ruby red petal pusher would be perfect for her!
she came by my booth again today & was so kind!
she shared her story of how she came about her nicey jane model, which was hilarious!
i so hope she shares it on her blog.
i attended a lunch with the pioneer woman (ree).
she was an amazing speaker, focusing mostly on blogging and how hers evolved.
i even got up the nerve to ask her a question!
so, here i am being really honest:
i was so crazy nervous about asking a question.
first, because i was standing up in front of 400 people.
and 2nd, because i was speaking to ree!
i asked her about her experience with homeschooling,
and if she is passionate about it like she is about blogging and cooking.
she says it comes and goes, but overall, no.
which was good for me to hear that she has done it for so long and just finds other things to be passionate about.
me and p-dub
this was ree’s reaction to the petal pusher and petal drop necklace i gave her – so fun!
ok, next big event.
HUGE for me.
like tear-to-my-eyes kind of huge.
she was incredible sweet, totally engaged and um, super tall.
so here’s where i get all gooshy.
amy butler is why i do what i do.
it wasn’t until i found her fabric (ok, nicole found it first) that i really fell in love with fabric.
i thought all quilting fabric was calico prints, and well, not my style.
but when i saw amy butler’s gypsy caravan line i was blown. away.
yes, fabric changed my life.
not like my husband or my kids do, but in a very different way.
more pics tomorrow on my booth and the market.
i’m wonderfully overwhelmed.
