I was very thrilled today to be invited by Sandy to join her in meeting Connie Govea Stuart. Ohmygosh could anyone be so lucky? Connie is lovely and gracious, she came bearing gifts, even for me! I couldn't believe it. You can see many photos over on Sandy's blog, Connie shared a lot of complete works with us.. the whole thing was amazing to me.
The really cool thing about Connie is, she's really open and sharing about what she does and how its done. There are so many possibilites my brain is just bursting with ideas. Sounds corny but I found the whole experience so amazing and overwhelming. There she was just, well, TELLING US STUFF. Like we'd known her forever.
Needless to say I was barely in control of myself. And probably a little embarrassing. Sorry Sandy.
After our meeting went over to Sweet Magnolia in Danville where I found a few small pieces of Connie's work to give as Christmas gifts (or hoard for myself.. no, I'll give them.. maybe.) Sandy and I had a great day out and about, be sure and read her entry all about it. She has some nice photos of Connie's work.
Thanks Sandy! The whole day was amazing!
