I'm so HAPPY!!!

For so many years I subscribed to a little magazine called Mary Engelbreit's Home Companion. It was such a lovely magazine filled with home decorating ideas, great stories about up and coming artists, and of course it was filled with the artwork of none other than Mary Engelbreit herself. The magazine is no longer published :( but having saved all of my issues, they are just a stack away. So when my dear friend Cindy asked me if I wanted to go with her to a workshop in St. Louis being put on by Mary, I jumped at the opportunity. And I jumped for so many reasons. To be around people who started their businesses like I have from the ground up would be such an inspiration to me. Way back in October I signed up for this workshop and finally in just a few short weeks, Cindy and I will be winging our way back to St. Louis to attend this phenominal event.

It will four days of fun, fun, fun! It starts with a tour of Mary's very own Studio. Oh my! Will that be a treat. Then the workshop begins on Friday. When we get a little closer, I will tell you what workshop classes that I will be taking. Let me just say, WOW! I signed up to take classes from some of the best in the industry including, Kaari Meeng of French General, Wendy Addison, Charlotte Lyons, and Matthew Mead.

I couldn't be more thrilled and happy to make this trip. You know I'll be bringing my camera to capture all of the fun moments of this most amazing trip. It will be a Spring to Remember!
