Getting ready for the Christmas Fair

Yesterday evening, I met up with some of the Holly Jolly ladies over coffee in Bloor West. It was hit and miss whether I would make it, but I made it my business to go and I'm so glad I did.

First, I met Sharon whom I had come across a long time ago in an artchix yahoo group, and you can only imagine the hoots of recognition as we told each other our names.

Carmi, our fearless leader, I had met a couple of times before (visit her blog, it's on my links list to see a sample of Martha's adorable pins)! And there was Aracely, the first quiller I have met -- quilling is still a mystery to me, so I'm looking forward to seeing her goodies.

I am so happy to have finally found some fellow artists right here where I live.

Subway token: $2.10
Coffee: $1.65
Live feedback on my stuff: priceless.


  1. lucky you Colette! to have a group of ladies to 'do art' with in real life.
    I went over to Carmis' and love the pin! Miss Spell - hey that's me :-)

  2. Neat! Sounds like a good time.

  3. How much fun to spend time with fellow artisans and compare notes!

  4. So pleased you have spent some time with artists near to you dear Colette! I hope this leads to lasting friendships with people you would like to connect with.

    Am sure they LOVED your art!!


  5. Coffee and artist friends...sounds warm and good and right. These little moments are the best. So happy you are sharing your craft together as well as friendship.

  6. oh, I would have loved to be there to see both you and your beautiful artwork!
