A Few Trip Highlights

As promised, here are a few pix from our recent trip to Florida, with side trips to Georgia and the Smokies.

The first one is from the Firefox Living History Museum near Mountain City, Georgia. This church was moved to the Foxfire village (which is one really cool place to visit), from North Carolina. I loved the Foxfire books and, of course, had to purchase the 40th anniversary one while we were there. I'm about half-way through it and it's great! If you ever get the chance to visit this wonderful place, don't pass it up. It was not crowded and the entire place had an almost sacred feeling about it. There's even a wagon on display that was used on the Trail of Tears, a very dark blotch on our history.

The second photo is entitled This is what 60 looks like. It was made on my birthday outside the restaurant where we had dinner. Fabulous seafood, a table on the deck overlooking the water and my favorite dinner partner, Larry. What more could a girl ask for?

The last few photos are from the CHA Show - Tim Holtz at the Trade Show and me at the Consumer Show along with Eclectica's Ellen and Rhonda (photo on the left) and some of the ladies who were there for the entire presentation (right), who stopped by to see a little of my demo involving German diecuts, golden foil trims, new Cuttlebug plates, Smooch paint and the Easy Cutter punch. Check out Tim's antique box for storing embellishments in the first pic. Way cool! Andreas Hamm of Paper Dreams Factory, the distributor of golden trims and German diecuts, was the photographer for my demo. Thanks for making me look good, Andreas!
