oh my gosh ! Do you know I forgot it was ARTFEST!?

I was too tickled to come here and see the pictures! It looks like it was COOOLD.

What a treat having your own coffee runner every morning...I do remember that getting up and getting to class each day was a little daunting.

I bet right about now you are on BURN OUT !

(hey did Ellen lose weight , she was in a class with me last year and she looks great)

I see you got to Pike's Place and boosted the economy there a little ? I see bags in your hands !

Not showing off your projects yet ? Can't wait to see...and what did you make for trades ? What did you get for trades ? Why were you a little tipsy ? Where did you guys gooo ? I hope you tried the margaritas at The Waterfront ! ( I think that was the name...?)

Well home safe and sound and now you have to recover. I was sooo burned out after last year....I can only imagine how you are feeling. They are getting snow up there today, so ! Glad you are guys don't look much warmer up there.

Love, S
