Anticipation...

...is looking forward to seeing a faraway friend in less than a month. My friend Heather is coming for the Art Fiber Fest in four weeks! I cannot wait to see her, as it has been over a year and a half since we last saw each other. Heather and I met online and we became friends online. When we first met in November 2004 at a Bead Art retreat, we knew instantly who the other one was. What a wonderfully funny time we had at that retreat! Since then, we talk to each other and watch our favorite TV shows via Instant Messenger at least twice or three times a week. It has been a wonderful and inspiring and supportive friendship. Getting to spend some time together while she is here will mean so much to me...

And - and - I get to meet Joleen, because she's coming to AFF too! Heather and Joleen are partners in crime, and the editors and creators of Portals. Portals is an art zine, full of ideas and inspiring articles by all kinds of artists. The second edition is coming soon. Which reminds me...I better go order mine...


...and then I better get cracking on this mess of an apartment I call home. Let's see...where to start?? AGH! Would that I were wealthy and had a "staff" to help me clean. As it is, all I have is Annie, and she ain't helping much!

You and Heather are going to have such fun! I enjoy being with her too!! Lucky to get to meet Joleen! I haven't had the pleasure yet, but love reading her blog. :) Take lots of pictures at AFF and give Mamarox a big ole hug for me!

Oops! After I read your comment, I re-read my blog entry. I didn't mean it to sound like I actually get to GO to AFF. My stooopid car has ruined that for me! So - Heather will be here for an extra day, and she'll stay with me and we'll go get in trouble in Seattle. On Sunday we'll take Joleen with us on our adventures until she has to go to the airport...at least that's the plan right now! How I wish I COULD actually attend AFF though!
