Pamkittymorning + Blogger = Luv (for now)


Elizabeth and I sitting in the Oakland Airport.. she picked me up at 4am. Wow, I can't believe I wanted to post this picture so bad. Ugh. Well, I'd like to think my head doesn't look like the moon but this photo and blogger tells me otherwise.

If I hadn't seen the whole convention center as it was the 2 days before market started, I'd have never believed it. The place was a wreck. This is the booth with just a few of the boxes in it. Elizabeth shipped 14 boxes to her in-laws.

This is the booth before market opened at 9:30 2 days later. Didn't take that long to get it set up, we were basically done by the end of the first day, just a few things were added the second day. Some people had some seriously elaborate booths. And then there were the not-so-elaborate booths. And ugly booths, and amazing booths. What's most obvious is that everyone loves what they do.

Here's our first celebrity guest, Alex Anderson. In a venue like this its hard not to notice that's she's a star, but at home she's our friend Alex. It was her encouragement that got Elizabeth moving towards her own shiny spot in our quilting universe. Alex is a wonderful person and a great friend.

Lastly, and most certainly not least, here's Julie, Elizabeth's sister-in-law. Without her to drive us around, store and cart our stuff and just in general be a good sport about helping, we couldn't have done it. Thanks Julie. It was a great pleasure meeting you.

Great pictures. The booth looks super inviting! I really wish I could have gone to that quilt show.

You don't look like a moon.
