A World Of Thanks...

I've been meaning to write this post for days now but between last days of school, work, work and more work, time just seems to be running away from me constantly. But rest assured I've been thinking about all you amazing women who went above and beyond to help me with my Mezzanine and MODKID debut at Quilt Market.

First and foremost, I'd like to a send HUGE virtual hug & kiss to my mom, who not only came all the way from Florida to take care of the kids, house and everything in between for 13 days, but also came loaded up with gorgeous goodies made with Mezzanine. All of the items below can be found on her Esty store, by the way, in case you wanted one for yourself.

This first one happens to be the purse I carry as my everyday purse. It holds EVERYTHING and I'm not kidding! If you know me well, you know how much junk I like to carry all the time with me and this purse does the trick (by the way, this is the 3rd purse I've owned in this style... I just love it!)

How 'bout this gorgeous and petite cocktail purse?

And on the other end of the spectrum, an extra-large tote, perfect for going to the beach, day camps, shopping, you name it!

Another special person I'd like to send a virtual hug & kiss to is Amy Priddy of priddycreations. Amy made this amazing camera bag for me in record time. And when I say record time I mean: she got the fabric on the Saturday before I left for Market, made the bag on Sunday (which just happened to be Mother's Day... yah!) and had it in the mail Monday morning... on the way to Pittsburgh, because it wouldn't have gotten here on time. My dear friend, Ronda Opipery, was nice enough to receive the package for me and deliver it to my hotel in Pittsburgh. The gorgeous camera bag was there waiting for me at the front desk when I checked in on Wednesday. How sweet is that! Thanks a million Amy & Ronda!

If you desire a bag just like this one, check this out, Amy is offering it in her Etsy store!

Next, I'd like to thank my dear friend Heather Kaeb, of thepolkadottotspot, for making me a whole new slew of adorable fabric jingle balls. These were a huge hit at Market again, and she is offering them in her Etsy store along with a few other sweet goodies made with Mezzanine.

And last, but certainly not least, a HUGE HUGE thank you hug to my dear friends Kristen Hallagan (gocksfrocks) and Myrinda Dixon (fabrichound) for staying late after the show ended and practically dismantling my entire booth by themselves. What was I doing? Taking pictures, of course! ;) And Jon? Stuck in traffic with the trailer! Seriously, these ladies didn't waste a second and as soon as the show was over they grabbed screwdriver & hammer and got to work...

Thank you all SO MUCH for going above & beyond in so many ways! LOVE YA!!!
