This and that!


Yaah, I am off to Artfest next year.
I can’t wait.
I got the workshops I wanted to.
I am excited as I will be doing the Ashman’s on day 1.
Day 2 is my master o’ master Nina’s class.
Day 3 is a class with Susan Lenart Kazmer.

If anyone out there is going let me know.

My buddy Kristen and I will be spending a few days together before I go to Portland. We are planning on scouring flea markets and just hanging out.

And I am supposed to hook up with my other mate Ruth Rae too.


I have finally got my ETSY shop issues all figured out.

There is a link over to the right on my blog, it is the first thing you see.

That is I have a system now for the shipping issues. What a nightmare!
Thanks to all my lovely blog mates who jumped on board early and placed order, I really appreciate the support.


My gorgeous bebe, Michael, who is presently in Mexico is arriving soon!
Well soon enough.
So the countdown is on.
We have not seen each other since May which is way too long but unavoidable.

Next year we will be together a lot more.
He won’t be having a white Christmas this year!

Ciao – hope you are having a lovely weekend!

Karen Cole said...

Thinking about Artfest and Michael hasn't even arrived yet. I guess things have slowed down alittle...:-)

What about the east coast, mi amiga?

Glad to hear your etsy shop is booming!!

Lissy said...

Artfest sounds great :) And gee hope the time left until Michael gets here zooms along for you :)

Janine said...

Oh Judy you will have a ball! Glad to hear that it won't be long until Michael arrives.

Julie H said...

Judy I think you might be showing off just a little ... laugh ... Artfest ... store success AND an arty man to spend time with!!

Bless you - you deserve all the good things that come your way.

Jo Wholohan said...

Congrats Judy, etsy looks fantastic and very yummy items :))

Ro Bruhn said...

WOW JUDY, your taking a class with Susan Lennart Kasmer, lucky you. If I could only ever take one class it would be hers. She was the inspiration behind my jewellery. Glad ETSY's sorting itself out, and so happy for you that you get to see Michael soon.

Kristen Robinson said...

You know I cannot wait until this spring loads of fun await us. I am so happy Michael arrives soon; time together is so precious, 6 months apart is hard.


paris parfait said...

Oh you're so lucky to spend time with our mutual friend Kristen! She is wonderful and I'm sure you'll have a great time together. And hooray for you soon having your reunion with Michael - that's a great photo. Good news about Artfest, as well.

rochambeau said...

So Glad you got the Artfest classes you wanted, that you will see Kristen and soon get to be with Michael!

Have a great day Judy!

Judy Wise said...

All that joy spread out like a banquet for you - I am so glad you have so much deliciousness in your life. Enjoy. xoxo

Me! Me! I'm going to Artfest. All I know is Teesha's promised me a spot in Michael's Morpheus Box class. I may be sleeping on the steps for the rest. lol Can I wear my Aussie biking jersey and holler, "Aussie! Aussie! Aussie! Oy! Oy! Oy!" when I meet ya?!? ;)

Sharon Manning said...

Well if I win lotto I'll be at Artfest! LOL and what are the chances of that?
Glad you sorted out Etsy, I know it was driving you mad.
I was only thinking the other day it can't be long before Michael arrives in Australia. The long wait is over, I'm sure next year will be scheduled around the two of you.
Take Care.

Leslie said...

Oh Artfest sounds divine! I was slow on the draw, and most of the classes are filled now. Also, I have a grandson arriving the end of January, so I'll still be smitten and hopefully needed for baby-sitting in April!

Speaking of smitten, you and Michael look so sweet together! This is the second or third adorable picture of you two. I'm so happy for you!

Also glad your etsy issues are behind you; I'm loving your shop!

dogfaeriex5 said...

megan said...

Luuuckyyyyy! I will look forward to hearing the lowdown on artfest. Glad you are getting to spend some time with your man soon - may was such a long time ago. Glad the etsy is going well - as soon as my art material moritoriam (spelt?) is up I will be there! Mx

Hi Judy...

I am trying to buy about $184.00 worth of your products. I didn't have an "etzy account" so am waiting for their reply on verification of me setting up an account. I think they might be confused since I have "2" companies and my email addresses all come into one account. So, I just wanted to let you know as soon as they set up my account I will get you paid. Hopefully, by the time they get this info done, the items I wanted to buy don't get sold! You can contact me directly at www.debilynndesigns. com

Look forward to getting this "technical stuff" out of the way, so I can see my goodies! Debi

Oh my! this photo of you & Michael is precious! no words need to be spoken, this photo oozes "soul lovers" ;) did you ever see that movie "what dreams may come true" the good parts of it anyways...soul mates!

I wish I could join you at artfest!! I hear all the classes are full~ how I would love to attend again~

love your new etsy store!

congrats on the writeup in the Jewish news!! so kool!!

can't wait to see more photos of you & Michael when he arrives for his visit!!

till next time~ xo ~Bella

Judy - Lucky you! Someday when my girl is older and I win the lottery I will go, too. What's ridiculous is that I live in Seattle and it's so close!

I can't believe you are old enough to have a son graduating from school! I would have bet money that you were at least 10 years younger than I am and in fact you're 6+ months older. Happy Birthday to you and your brother.

I'm going to go check out your Etsy shop now...


LINDSAY said...

Hello! I just stopped by your etsy shop after seeing what Ro posted on her site. You do have some fine rusty objects. Glad to see your shop is doing well. Hope to meet you at Artfest!
