Home again, home again!Late Monday night I returned from a wonderful week in Boone, North Carolina.
One of the great joys of traveling across the United States is getting to see my ole friend Joe Miller (Cheap Joe himself). He is a warm, generous, and a very caring person. We have been friends through some very tough times in our lives. I could always count on him to offer words of encouragement and hopes for a better day. I only hope I have been half the friend to him that he has been for me.
I think this was one of the best workshops yet and for sure some of the nicest people around! The workshop facility is the BEST! Everyone has there own table, I have an over head mirror for demos and every day we had a new goodie on our table (me too!). I had a large workshop with 25 people. Edwina took care of all the details to made the workshop run seamlessly…she is amazing!
Two years ago when I scheduled this workshop I hoped it would correspond with the height of fall colors…I wasn’t disappointed! My daily commute (1.5 miles) was filled with glorious colors that would make any artists heart leap for joy. Even the view out the workshop window was amazing. Eye candy to the artist! You have to understand I’ve lived my entire life in Southern California…we don’t have colors like that here!
There is something about Southern charm and hospitality that just makes a person feel down right welcome. I can’t wait to return in 2013.
