Back from Texas' Paper Cowgirl 2010!

Paper Cowgirl was a huge hit! I had such a great time!! I met some fabulous newbies and saw lots of friendly familiar faces too. We crafted, shopped around the huge antique square, ate (cupcakes and frosting shots were my fav!), and then oohed and ahhed over the lovelies during Vendor Night.

Meet and Greet and Swap Night!!

My sweet friend Nancy

Nancy and LaVerne headed up the darling Paper Doll Swap. Aren't they incredible?

Here are some of the fantastic flowers from the Blossom Swap I hosted. We ended up having two Blossom Swaps!

One-to-one swap "Cowgirl Banner and Cuff" created by the talented Kathy. I'll hang the banner in my art studio!

My Digi Art Girl class was a blast! I saw unsure eyes, confused eyes, and then wide set excited "Did I do THAT?!" eyes. I was thrilled!! Thank you ladies for trying something "out of the box" this weekend! Photos of my class will be coming asap. I had a friend take some shots while I was teaching.

Eating at the "Haunted" Catfish Plantation was southern cooking at it's finest. We ate so much incredible fried!

Joanna and I eating friend pickles, fried sweet potatoes, friend onion rings, fried catfish, friend hushpuppies, french fries....well anything and everything fried!

Artsy Friends Jennifer and Jana enjoying southern cooking!

Shopping and Cupcakes with Carol and Tanya

We shopped Old Town Waxahachie. Here are some of my "finds."

Vendor Night was magical!

Lots of goodies every inch of the convention center.
Here I am in my booth!

This is my sweetie friend Ann Denise. Her booth was amazing!! It was right next to mine...

The one and only "head cowgirl" Cindy Mayfield. She's the one in her!

Some of the teachers this year...from the left Deb, Joanna, Me, Jennifer B., Ann Denise, and Cindy G. We're waiting for our cupcakes and frosting shots!!

My good friends Carol and Tanya came with me this year to PC. They loved every minute!

Can't wait for Vendor Night at Paper Cowgirl in just a few days!! Here are a few other things that will be at my booth.

These are a take on my fresh flower corsages.

I got a hold of this "lot" of darling turtles and couldn't wait to play with them...

Some hand dyed tattered "pick-me" roses...ready to pin anywhere!

Bundles of fun Digital Postcards designed by me...

I'll also have a section of fabulous TweetyJill images and goodies along with a fun free make-and-take!

Collage "Hanger" Make and Takes

If you are attending the Paper Cowgirl '10 event in June, look for the TweetyJill make and take during Vendor Night! I am so excited to host the incredible make and take project sponsored by the one and only TweetyJill Co. I've been on the TJ design team and have had many things on their blog.

The make and take will be a nice sized canvas "hanger," perfect for haning on your wall or door knob. All papers and photos are from the TweetyJill company. The wonderful project is FREE for those who are attending Paper Cowgirl!!

Here are some sample projects I made using the TJ collage kits that will be at PC on vendor night:

I can't wait to see what the Paper Cowgirls come up with!

Please look for me on Saturday night!
