Home!



It was a whirlwind 5-night stay in Las Vegas and it's good to be home again! We had to add on an hour for daylight savings and make sure we didn't miss our flight home.

The highlight for me was meeting Kelly and her hubby! We met through the Hero Arts Flickr group over two years ago and finally got to meet in person. When we met, it's like we've known each other forever!



I don't know of anyone who would bring ALL of their Copics with them on a trip, but Kelly did! She came to my hotel room and gave me a personal coloring tutorial. I got to see Kelly in action and she colors so fast! It was like having my own YouTube video in front of me!


She also brought a little goodie bag with some Prima roses, Hero Arts' gems and pearls, and hard-to-find chocolate notecards. Thanks, Kellyboo! It's a weekend I'll never forget...





After Kelly left, we shopped at different outlets and ate waaaaay too much food! We took in a free concert of The Fab, a group who performed songs from the Beatles--a blast from the past!

Today we have a ton of laundry to do and prepare for our daughter and her fiancé to arrive from Alabama for a week's visit. I won't be doing too much blogging or crafting as they'll be staying in my craft room! I'll just have to put up with it for a week but it'll be worth it to have her home for a short while.

    Good to hear you had a great time. BTW did Kelly made an insurance of all her copics LOL ? I would have been afraid to leave it in the hotel LOL.
