Good Morning Everyone!
It's early morning here in Topeka, Kansas and I am on the last full day of my visit here with Shelly Parker (Shelly's Images) and I'm having such a fabulous time. Shelly and her family have been so wonderful to me! She is such a sweet lady and amazing hostess!
Although I haven't had my coffee yet, I wanted to share with you the fun we had yesterday!
We spent the day working on printing, cutting and creating embellishments that she can sell at her upcoming crafting show. (That is what prompted this visit ... we were Skyping and I commented that I wish I lived closer so I could come help her and she said "well jump on a plane and come on over"! AND, here I am.) While she spent time hand coloring, resizing and printing some of her images,
(yes ... she works on two computers at the same time! Now that's some serious multitasking!))
I was cutting them out and matting them so they could be priced & packaged for display/sale at the show.
Here are some of the images we worked with yesterday . . .
After lunch outside on the deck, she gave me a little tour of their beautiful backyard. They have worked very hard over the past several years relandscaping their backyard into a peaceful haven ... complete with a gorgeous pond,
complete with coy fish
swimming pool (pool is covered for the winter so I didn't take a photo), but check out this pool house complete with it's own WATER SPRAYING E ELEPHANT and
beautiful flowers & seating areas all around.
Not sure what we are up to today but I'm sure it will involve crafting! LOL!
I know she wants to get COPICS in my hands (she's such an enabler ... LOL) and there are some things on the computer I would like her to show me how to do ... so I'm sure we can find something to keep us out of trouble.
OKAY ... NOW I must get some coffee!
Catch you all later!
Have a fabulous day! I know I will!!
