Ahhhhhhhhh! Have my feet up on the ottoman and sitting back with a nice cup of coffee in the Seattle Airport Hotel! Rental car was taken back, clothes pulled out for tomorrow, bags repacked and dinner ordered! I'm ready for Texasland, but first a few thoughts about my weekend in Washington....
|Looking out from where I'm lounging at the mo...! LOL! View from the room tonight...Cool atrium!|
First a HUGE thank you to Charlie LaBonte of The Hens' Den for inviting me to come to this beautiful, beautiful place...It seems like yesterday that I met Charlie at CHA and I'm so very grateful I did. She is a GORGEOUS lady inside and out! Everyone that came to class today walked away with the most amazing goodie bags she prepared! So cool! Thank you Charlie for your kindness! The Hens' Den Rocks! Please check out Charlie's awesome online store here...The Hens' Den.

Thank you again for joining me on this journey to Snohimish, LaConnor, Deception Pass, Marysville and Tumwater, Washington! I had such a blast and hope that I can come back someday to this GORGEOUS part of the United States!
Thank you Charlie LaBonte for having and hosting me! You are such a sweet friend! You made this event so special for all of us! Thanks also to Carol Hester and Cesar for helping today! So kind of you both!
And last but not least, a HUGE thank you to all folks who attended class! You guys ROCKED the project! So cool! Thank you for the awesome hugs!!! You made my day!!!!
Just wanted to take a second and say a couple more things...I want to wish EVERYONE a Wonderful Mother's Day Tomorrow! I love my Mom so much and wish I were there to give her a BIG hug tomorrow, but since I'm not...MOM, a BIG hug to you... I love you more than my hair!
Sorry, but on to a sad note for a minute....
I cannot forget to honor my beloved sister, Kathy Sue Hankins today! It's with a very heavy heart my family sadly lost the most amazingly loving and funny woman to a totally unexpected cardiac arrest four years ago today. Ironically, it was the day after Mother's Day. It still seems so unbelievable. We all loved her so and didn't get a chance to say goodbye...So, point here, please, please go now and love on your family and give your mom a big hug for Mother's Day tomorrow. You honestly don't know if it will be your last chance... My thoughts go to my sweet mom tonight. You done good Mama!
Well, off to rest up for that flight back home in the morning!! I finally get to see my studio for more than one night this time! Yahoooo... Home for awhile so lets get some crafting done! See you Tuesday Night, for Take Out Tuesday on Ustream!
