I know I know...it has been a while, but trust me I think of posting often. I just have been running since I got back from Art & Soul. I didn't take any pictures, but it was soooo nice to see some of my former students, friends and meet all my new students. I drove home on Tuesday morning with the sun shining and my heart was full to the brim. These retreats create such joy, and I just love the energy my students create. Pure Enthusiasm! If you were in one of my classes and took a picture of your project and posted on a blog...send me a link I would love to see it.

Here is Marie's finished bracelet from my "Fusing" class.

What can I say...I love mary janes...fancy ones, comfy ones, sporty ones. I purchased these shoes on my one free day at Art & Soul...I was sad that the one class I signed up for was cancelled, but so excited to do a little shopping in Portland. I purchased these based purely on color. Hopefully they will be comfortable..Danskos are suppose to be good for your feet right? I saw a pair of georgeous blue boots in the shop window, but they made my feet look even larger than they already are....so when I saw these...I had to have them. I am trying to save the economy one pair of shoes at a time. I can justify just about anything don't you think?

I am a mom first and foremost and everything on my schedule comes after that except for you Jeff! Soccer season is almost over and this was the first year of having both girls on official teams with games on the same day so it was a little crazier than normal. My oldest daughter's team will be in the play offs tomorrow and then we'll see if we have one more game. Then we are on to basketball.

So if you cruz the blogs and visit blogs that the owner posts regularly be sure and drop them a line saying how much you enjoy their blog...because they are all my heros. They make the time to connect with us and share their stories.

I'll post a little about ArtFiberFest and my new addiction soon!

The shoes look fab on you! If they were a brand that fit my feet, I would have bought a pair, too. Can't wait to hear about your new addiction. :)

I have a thing for shoes too. Unfortunately, in size 10, mary janes lose their cuteness!

Nice to see you! I come regularly to check and I was delighted to see some news. Love those shoes! I got a pair of red ones because at a certain age a woman should have at least one pair of red shoes ;-)

Thank you for your letter, it was of great comfort and made me feel once again how much I missed seeing you this year. Hugs from here.
