Simon and Me

Just a couple of quick side notes
 1) There are still 4 slots available for the Pay It Forward post. See my post for more details.
 2) In the spirit of Old Red Barn's Quilt-a-Long, I think I am brewing up some ideas for a sew-a-long/give-away for my 100th post. More to come soon.
3) Give away over at the Fabric Shopper: Amy Butler bag.

Now on to Simon and me...

Simon and Me

My husband snapped this photo of me and my new friend, Simon, just outside of Daine Koss's booth (Cutesy but not Cutesy) at the Art Star Craft Bazaar in Philadelphia, PA. I just love Diane's work. I had been watching her Etsy shop for a while now. I just couldn't decide which creature to have her ship to me. Then I noticed that she would be at the show in Philadelphia. My husband and I packed up the Honda Fit and made the three plus hour drive to Philly for the show. It was wonderful. (More Photos)

Simon is now living in my craft studio. He likes looking out the window at all the birds in our neighbor's trees as well as all the bunnies that hop across our yards. Sometimes you can hear him chitter like a cat :)

I also saw My Ugly Kitty's, Renee at the show. It was really cool because she did a double take and said, "Hey, I know you..." She later told me that she recognized me by my hat. My profile picture over on Flickr has me in this hat too. I think that is where she saw me. You can always find me in a crowd :)

I sent some pictures into her friends of Quasi page about a year ago and have been following her blog ever since. All three of my kitties joined Quasi's "adorkable" friends page. Renee is a really talented print artist. She makes custom silkscreened invitations and other stationary. I just love her work.
