Had a great weekend with friends.  On Saturday, a friend and I went to a Women's Expo.  I had been anticipating it since I had won the tickets.  I was not disappointed.   It was a memorable day. I think we went to nearly every booth and we signed up for countless prizes.  One booth had all jewelry for $5 or less.  This included earring and necklace sets.  What a bargain. I walked away with three sets!  Naturally, we tasted all the samples which ranged from flavored popcorn to all kinds of salsa.  I had never tried raspberry salsa before.  However, my friend assured me it tasted great over chicken.  I'll have to take her word for it because I don't think I will be trying it any time soon.  

On Sunday, I joined another friend at a bingo fundraiser after church. I never knew there were so any ways to play bingo!  L, T, 4 corners, small frame, etc.  I was really hoping to win a Vera Bradley tote.  Unfortunately, I didn't win anything but I enjoyed the time making new friends.  Plus, my money went for scholarships for local students.  A win win.

They were great ways to spend the weekend with it being so cold and windy.  In my defense, I did attempt to do some weeding.

Wow!  Is that date correct?  Feb 22 since I last posted?  Well,  I have been busy writing an article for an magazine which was accepted.  Also, I have started some cover art for another magazine.   That's not counting an Altered Book Art display at my library that I have been working on.   I made a book purse, an apple, some folded pages sculpure pieces, and now I am working on some jewelry pieces.  Plus, a ton of work tasks and several board and committee meetings outside of work.   Whew!  Getting tired reading this? 

I am not complaining.  I love to craft and create both things and come up with new ideas.  I just finished a surprise Miss Kitty felted sweater doll for my granddaughter Lucy.  Here it is:  Let me know what you think.
