Monday means it's time to write THIS post . . .

Tote that barge!  
Lift that bale!

The brain work is over and the heavy lifting has begun. 
Time to load up the truck and hit the road.

Destination:  Baltimore 
ETA:  Wednesday afternoon 

The American Craft Council Show runs February 24-27.  My own particular party will be in booth 1123.  And here are a few of the characters I've invited to attend (aka: NEW WORK!)

post pictures of pending publication of a book . . .)

There will also be about 20 other pieces on display --


provided we arrive in one piece
and the lights turn on when we flip the switch
and the snow has been cleared so we can get out of the driveway in the first place . . .

A day of worry is more exhausting 
than a week of work.

-- John Lubbock

I'm not sure whether that's true or not, but two days of driving is at least as exhausting as work and worry, and when you add all three together . . . well, when you get to my booth if I'm "resting my eyes," just tap me on the shoulder and I'll be happy to offer you a personal tour and a piece of chocolate.  And my undying gratitude for your kindness in stopping by, of course.  I hope to see some friendly faces!

And if the closest you're going to get to Baltimore is
The Small Works Show Report,

come back for that when I return, March 2.
(Until then, stop by Happy Thought 
for a -- well -- a happy thought.

  'Til then -- ta ta!

Thanks, Chels -- you're hired as my personal PR coordinator! (Wish you could come . . .)

WOW! I'd be hard pressed to pick a favorite here, they're all so wonderful. And each one now so beautifully framed -- you've figured out the perfect final accents for each piece. Amazing, I'll second that!

Hope you have a great show and a fun trip.

Amelia Poll said...

I wish Chelsea could come, too!

But, yippie! I get to see all those pieces in person (unless you sell them all before Friday *crossing fingers, for your sake* :)

Safe travels. We will see you soon!

I LOVE Hand of Fate. Very nice use of materials. LOL

susan m hinckley said...

Thanks, Julie! Couldn't have done it without you!

Leenie said...

Most excellent work. I only wish it wasn't thousands of miles away because I would SO like to see those small works in wool in their outstanding framing with my own eyes. Best wishes and great vibes going your way for much success! No sleeping and driving at the same time!

Libby said...

These are FABULOUS! Thanks to Ann Brauer for pointing me in your direction. Hope Baltimore was smashingly successful. I'm considering returning next year....
