The whole "round 2" thing means nothing to you, but to me, it's a big deal. I'd spent considerable time on this post already and then Blogger in its infinite wisdom decided to delete all but the last sentence. And while it was a decent enough sentence, it really couldn't carry the whole post. So here we go again!
One of the great things about Market is all the visitors to our booth. Meeting up with old friends and making new ones. Pam knows way more people than I do, and I was lucky enough to meet some of them.
Here's Michelle of Green Kitchen blog fame. Yes, that's her behind the curtain, attempting some sort of artful shot of the booth. She was a delight and it was great to see Market through her very creative eyes.
And here's Kelly from Superbuzzy. Of course you already know that Superbuzzy is the place for all that is cool and Japanese. She was lots of fun and was sporting awesome little hair clips!
Next up we have Jona of Stop Staring and Start Sewing fame. Pam was thrilled to meet her...I live under a rock so Jona was new to me, but not anymore! Her blog is fantastic.
It was fun to see Sharon of Red Geranium Cottage and her friend No Blog, who I do believe has a blog?? I'm sorry but I'm a bit confused on that.
Here's amazon me with one of my favorite Market people--Kay from Serendipity Studio. She designs the most wonderful garment and purse patterns...I own almost all of them. I have actually finished one skirt and have a top about 30 minutes away from being finished. That may not sound like a glowing endorsement, but considering the trouble I have finding time to finish my own stuff...I can tell you her patterns are wonderful and very easy to follow. And could she be any cuter??
The star of Market this year was none other than Jay McCarroll of Project Runway fame. His booth was jammed all the time but I was on a mission to get his autograph for Monica. Had Michelle take this pic so Monica could see that it really did happen. Monica, I'm sorry I was unable to fulfill your premier fantasy, but I hope the autograph and little bug button will suffice.
Jay was lots of fun and I'd heard from Gina that he smelled terrific, and yup, he sure did!
As for Late Bloomer news, I managed to get all our new offerings up on the website yesterday, so have a look at what's new!
