Lisa D. & Priti.Lisa and a Blog Party!

This past week I had a guest come to visit.
We have been blog friends for about 5 yrs,
but had never met in real life.
 made the trip from Chicago
and we spent 6 days
arting and talking.
It was a new experience for me,
and I am so glad we did it!

Here we are grabbing lunch at Lisa's Cafe before we go thrifting

we both drive a Prius...but we loved this artsy car!
might look like crap to some...but I know you all "get it"

More Marys for me and more boots for Lisa

Took Lisa D. to vist the Barber Shop

Lisa D. is famous for her Flowers and Trees.
 Here is the link to find her work Lisa's Art.

Lisa taught me something she calls paperbag art.

I don't think it is finished...

Here we are right before we left her at the airport
I had a fantastic time Lisa!
And I am excited to do it again.

Part 2:

Last year, 7 friends and I decided create in 
8 art journals together.
A collaboration.
This weekend,
we are having a little blog party...
we will be showing the pages in our books
and giving away little prizes.
If nothing else,
we hope to inspire you.

Party starts Saturday, the 19th!
Won't you join us?
