Crop Occasions Event - Feb 18-20, 2011

Hello Fellow Bloggers!

I've been missing in action recently - my job sent me on some intense training (still studying!!) ... then, I had a little fun time at my first crop! My fellow SOC sister, Pam, hosted a crop event here in Northern Virginia, and I had such a good time!

I managed to complete nine 8x8 layouts and a make and take! I didn't do ANY spending, as I had previously entered a challenge to not purchase any craft related items for the month of February ... but I still had an awesome time.

I learned a LOT from my tablemates, Nikki, Lori and Nadine ... and it was wonderful to meet some local vendors!! I put together a little slide show below, and will be posting more pics soon!

My next trip coming up in October, will be flying to Oregon to paint with my favorite artist Jamie Mills Price!!

Hope to hear from you out there about craft events you've attended recently or are planning on attending!

It's About Love and Black History this Month...

February is the month of Love & the celebration of Black History. For me, neither is ever confined to just one month. I celebrate love everyday - and tell those who I love, I Love you, every day. I celebrate my history, every day, making sure to speak with my son each day about 1 little known fact regarding our history.

Whether you are African American or not - embrace your history and share it with those that you love.
