I cannot tell you how much I wish I could have been at Becky Rourk's home to celebrate her festive and oh so artful style along with her crew of gal pals and Anna Corba...
When the invite came I thought i might be able to really be there, but life and kids and the day to day just got in the way. Sigh...
And congrats to Becky, her artful "Craft Gathering with Anna" will be featured among the pages of the next Mingle magazine (this is Stampington's cool publication on occasions and festivities).
I am so thrilled that there will be a feature on this spiffy event!
Just look at these fab images Becky shared.
Love, love the happy and bold pink and black.
Becky is a great story teller and you can see she tells a tale of style with all she does....
I want to dive in to her table of loot, supplies and goodies galore!
...no little detail was left undone...
Her gorgeous home is much the same and was the perfect backdrop for this crafting party.
I missed being with you ladies!
Becky so glad we'll see each other in Sanford, FL TOMORROW!!!
...maybe next time I can make it. It was a treat to be invited and so glad you gals had such a super bash!

I am so thrilled that the artists were able to snap a few images before the art was shipped to FL...
Hope to see you in Sanford soon!
As you may have read in yesterday's post there are more than 1,000 pieces of original art on their merry way to the 8th annual "heART of winter" show at the Jeanine Taylor Folk Art Gallery this weekend in Sanford, FL...
Here are some peeks from talented painter Jennifer Lanne... These are the artist's personal favorite pieces.
We've posted these to the site today and they can be ordered...yes more will be at the event...but these are just magic and we had to share...
Note these are simple pics snapped by Jennifer...more images will follow...
I want to give you as many peeks as possible on what to expect at the event...some of you will come early to the show to shop -- others cannot make it so email me to order...or see the site.

Hello to only 3 more weeks of winter. Actually, I want say goodbye to Winter...the cold weather really wears me down. I want to be outside more than we have been. I am done with baking and being cozy...I want to get outside and run. Wondering when the next storm will decide to send us more snow...
