Above is AD. Or as she came to be known during PC, "Ann-"Martha Stewtart Fears Her" Denise". Yes, is there nothing that gurl can't do? This paper dress has over 400 coffee filters in it. Some coffee dyed, some plain. AD simply rocks.
You gotta love a Cowgirl with a past. Especially when its pinned to her Prom Skirt. Yes, Kristi took vintage to new heights when she pinned the contents of Gramdma's trunk to her petticoat for Prom. Gotta love it.
And speaking of Trashy...the Trashy Cat Parking Lot Sale was a HUGE success. Deb, Cat Daddy and Lisa Mac pulled off a spectacular sale of great vintage goods that could be had for just a few bux. Despite the heat, many of us showed up just to see the goods that trailer held. Jana is enthralled with this vintage umbrella.
Mary of Green Paper for her generous donation of one of her Glue Book Classes. Dorthe's beautiful doll went to first time Cowgirl Julie Bartow. Karen Valentine generously donated several of her CD's as well as a mini Blog makeover. Dawn of Feathered Nest donated the lovely piece above and this was raffled off to raise money for Tee's Art Scholarship Fund. We raised almost $300.00 for Tee's fund, which some lucky art student in Breckenridge will receive. We are honored to carry on Tee's memory in this way. Thank you ladies, we truly could not have done it without you. The gals enjoyed the goodies so much.
All of our classes were so much fun. I was constantly amazed and delighted at the beauty that each teacher puts into the prep of her class room.
Here Sandra uses pretty shades of pink as she prepared for her class on painting roses.
This my friends, is truly, just the tip of the iceberg. There are some great photo's from our Meet and Greet, Prom, our Vendor Show, more classes and just random junk. For now, you can go here to see even more. Lisa has a great post too. As does Karla and Beth, and AD. And too me, it was the creme del la creme to have bloggers Karla, Beth, and Deb all involved in Paper Cowgirl this year. It was truly special. Thank y'all so much for being a part of it all.
Meanwhile, there is more coming down the pipes. I'm in the midst of working on Wicked Tea (for October 15th), as well as possibly events for September and January (of 2012). You tell me you want more, more, MORE, so I will see what I can do. I'm also working on a 'Zine and the Paper Cowgirl On-line Shop. But for right now, I'm going to mosey over to the couch and have a wee nap.
Here's hoping that this summer afternoon has you doing something you love to do....zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
