What a wonderful whirlwind of fun! On Friday night we attended the wonderful CrescendoH launch party. I saw so many wonderful friends, and was unexpectedly thrilled to see my darling friend Jeanne there (I'm so happy I had my Bushel and a Peck bag on me!), and to make new friends and catch up with old!!
First, I met with these girls in downtown Orange for some dinner and girltime before the event:
GlitterFest on Saturday
The Mosaic Queen set up and ready to go:
Some of Michelle's treats available for sale (and of course they all sold):
Including this spectacular cake:
One of Michelle's newest designs.... a crown, the first sale of the day!!!
Had one of these (you know what they are)....
And some of my peeps....
Beth Quinn, me and Beth's mom Deb
These are 2 little peeps I made friends with at Glitterfest. They are both wearing a DollyBelle creation in their hair!! These girls were darling!!!
Mindy and Holly
Michelle and Holly
And you know I love this girl- we are both from the Phoenix area, and see each other all over the country!
On Sunday we headed down toward San Diego for Mermaid Mercantile that was being held at a fabulous store called Out of the Blue:
To meet up with these peeps:
I fell in love with these way cool helping hands, so Michelle gave me a set. They are made by this extraordinary artist.....
Lisa Loria....she's fabulous!!!
After shopping around, we walked up the street to get some of this:
Flowers and succulents to die for!!!
And right before I left, I received a wonderful giveaway prize I won from my girlfriend Robin:

It was a FABULOUS weekend!!!
And to finish off a perfect weekend, girlfriend Tiffany's hubby Walker was in town on business:
and took Al and I on a tour of this wicked cool airplane:

This week I won a $200 gift certificate to my girlfriend Jeanne's store A Bushel And A Peck. When the goods arrived, look how lovely they looked wrapped!!
Then yesterday, I enjoyed some of this at Bomberos....
Both of these women are amazing- they are teachers as well. As many of you may know, I am hooked on Olivia's dolls (I purchase one for my birthday every year at Art Unraveled) and art; and my home is full of her good stuff, Olive Rose. Olivia is one of my favorite all time artists. Josie is multi talented with a special talent for soldering everything, is the author of these 2 fabulous books:
And tomorrow my sweet peep Michelle Legler and I will hit the road bright and early to celebrate this event:
(Michelle created the cupcake Jenny Doh used on the invitation!)
And then on Saturday Michelle will be vending at:
Where I will help Michelle sell these beauties, among others:
And if time allows, we will pop over to this to visit with some of our peeps that will be vending and playing:
