What a fun evening I had last night. My friend Nancy Jamar who is the owner of Gilding the Lily had a book signing party for me. She has the most amazing shop, I wrote about it on my entry on October 12, 2008 titiled Reflection. I have enjoyed shopping from Nancy's store for several years. She is a wealth of information and has a beautiful spirit and has used her wonderful space to give fellow artist a place to dwell, learn and share. I was showered with love from the most amazing women. Everyone's story was so wonderful to hear. Thank you to everyone who came to share and to my dear friends for supporting me and helping me. Nancy has the most incredible vintage ribbon collection along with jewelry findings. Nancy's husband even treated us to his tasty appetizers and wine collection.
The picture above is of my sweet young Tara who is about to attend FIDM college this fall. She is a fellow artist and is also the person I trust to watch my children. Isn't she gorgeous.
Here are the two girls that I really need to thank, My Pam and My Liz, Pam did all the beautiful illustrations in the book and was always there for me. And my sweet friend Liz who has such a servants heart. She is always there for me with a big loving smile. She was the graphic artist and we spent countless hours together working on this book. They are my true Jewels!!
Here are some more of my Jewels, my Julie who is the best neighbor I could ever dream of having!!
