A weekend full of wonderment

Its been a bit, and I mean to blog more. But life just gets in the way to much. Although I suppose death would prevent me from writing too. Oh well. Friday April 24 I was lucky enough to head to downtown OKC for the annual Festival of Arts. Put on by the Arts Council of Oklahoma City this event starts on Tuesday and ends on Sunday. Artist come from all over to show their creativity. Everything from pottery, huge sculptures to paintings and glass. Its a great chance to take in the fresh Spring air and enjoy the creativity people around you. It doesn't hurt that you can get all kinds of food, watch music and other performances too. This year I saw this piece and couldn't help but fall in love with it.

This wonderful imaginative creation is the work of C.J. Bradford. C.J. lives in Flower Mound, TX however he attended OU in Norman, OK. His imagination amazes me. Actually that is what I told him when I met him. "I love your imagination." Where else could these lovely creatures and creations come from. I'm certainly an admirer and hope that I see one of his works on my wall soon. Check out his other works and wonders.

From the OKC down to Ft. Worth for Funky Finds Spring Fling. Not only was I lucky enough to have a booth at this great event. I was lucky enough to see all my Texas creative friends!

I greatfully was able to stay with one of my TX friends, her husband and their dogs! She is the creative mind behind Harrilu!

Then of course I was happy to see one of the cutest Texans I know Tara to the T! Tara never stops surprising me with her adorable hairdos and clothes.

Not only was I lucky enough to have my own booth at Funky Finds Spring Fling, I was in a booth between Tara to the T and Jacky Tart.

Honestly there was one person I couldn't wait to see, cause I couldn't wait to buy from her. Regyna! Cause I couldn't wait to get my hands, literally on these!


Nope those are sweets or well dentures, those are SOAP! Wonderful amazing soap that smell as good as they look! Now I'm not one for buying soap online, but Soapopotamus has my business. I knew Regyna wouldn't steer me wrong when she said how long it takes her to get the scents for her soaps just right. And since I've got these lovelies I can't help but want to bake a cake! Oh yeah the dentures, a birthday gift for my dad. So order some for yourself, your friends or your foes.

I'm glad to see that you've been having so much fun on the crafting circuit. Those soaps are awesome, I will definitely have to order some of them eventually.

And by the way, you look freakin' hot standing there with your beautiful booth. Work it, girl!
