I've been wanting to organize my pictures and also help my kids with their photos and Tamara is encouraging me.
As you can see, it was held at a Christmas shop! Sleighbells, in Sherwood, Oregon, is a u-cut Christmas tree farm during the holidays and a Christmas store year- round. They also have this large room that they rent out for parties and events. What fun! We each got a large table to ourselves, in a room lined with Christmas Trees. It wasn't a class- we just chatted and worked on our own projects. For lunch and dinner, we brought food, went out- whatever we wanted. They are planning more of these days and I can hardly wait! If you're in the Portland (Westside) area, and might be interested in future dates, send me a private email. No purchase necessary and cost to attend is very reasonable.
When I took my little blog break, I started getting calls and emails from people asking me if I was ok. I was genuinely touched- surprised that my blog would be missed. Thank you guys (you know who you are).
After not blogging for several weeks, I wrote my first posts last night. WOW! So many wonderful readers (friends!) were right there, with many kind words welcoming me back. It gives me goose bumps, I tell you! You guys are awesome! I have lots of random photos that I took from events of the last few months. I'll share them with you over the next few weeks.
It's good to be back. :-)
