Koralee, for the past two years I've gone out to Minneapolis for the Junk Market and this year I'm staying home. So sad, because I would have loved to meet you in person. I'm going out today to look for the magazine. Congratulations and safe travels!

Tricia - A Rosy Note said...

I'll have to get the new Artful Blogging and check out your feature. Hope you have a wonderful time at the Creative Connection! I live right outside of Minneapolis and I wish that I was attending. It has been very cold here so I hope the weather improves for you. Have fun :)

Anne in Oxfordshire said...

Hello Koralee.. Wow you are going to have a fabulous time, being creative and meeting lots of new friends. Sounds wonderful. I love the words on the card . :-)

A huge thank you for my beautiful postcard.. What a welcome home that was .. very thought and very sweet of you :-) xxo

The Garden Bell said...

Wait one gosh darn second. I did not know you were spending a week at a fun event creating. One word...Jealous...and you know it take a lot to get T.G.B. jealous. That word is not in my vocabulary, seriously I was the only girl on the block growing up.

You are FabUloUS to have included me in your posting today. I did not blog our morning tea for that reason. I just enjoy our time together. You must know, I know just how much Blood, Sweat and Tears {b.t.s.} it takes to put your postings together. Darn it, there are those goosebumps on my arms again. Bumps of humble-ness to be part of your life's journey. Big Hugs right back to you. Have a very absorbing time in MN and take it all in for us. Be a sponge and soak it all up.

As Always Toodles, till next we catch up,
Kate - The Garden Bell

Hi Koralee Sweetie...
Oh how I wish I could be attending. What a wonderful time for all of you. I can't wait for you to share photos and crafts. Oh my, how I love the little pink heart. It just jumped right out and spoke to me. Made my little heart go pitter patter. Love it. The little bird is just precious too. What fun you will have.

I will be going in search of my magazine today. I have got to see what you have in there. Oh boy.

Have a wonderful trip. Don't fly away for to long though. I will be waiting for photos sweet friend. Many hugs and so much love, Sherry
