Time to Create...Again

It's hard to imagine 2 years has gone by since I've written on my blog -- and yet I've been busier than ever.  I've been through Graduations, College visits, Weddings, Retirements, moving, job searches, 1st home buying, 1st baby granddaughter, and much much more.

Now that I'm finally settling in I'm hoping to get back to blogging and creating again.  I had a great kick-start recently in Columbus, Ohio with this year's Create Event 2015, from Simon Says Stamp.  It was full of inspiration and amazing designers, and making new artsy friends was a true bonus!

New Friends:  Karen, Debee, and Colleen

Lawn Fawn's Kelly Alvarez - Just as sweet in real life

Beautiful Fall Venue

Which door to enter?  This is when I met Karen!

Fantastic Designers, Great Techniques, Loads of Fun

Working on my "to buy" list

Laura Bassen & Kristina Werner - great demos & lessons

My friend, Karen - Yep, she won an amazing prize
from Altnew & Simon Says Stamp! and yep, we were jealous.  :)

A bit star struck of Jennifer McGuire - but she is
so down-to-earth, and yep - Amazing!

Shari Carroll - holding my recently inked butterfly.
Refreshing & Fun personality!

Me & Shari, with my Shari inspired art!

Me & Jennifer - great to finally meet her in person!

And now, it's time to get back to creating again.  In the meantime, keep a watch out for new projects I've been working well as a look into the some of the events I worked on in the past two years.

Until then - Happy Journeys!  Lisa
