Oh lord. I have been the queen of procrastination tonight. I have piles of work to do. My dog is about to expire; she wants to go for a walk. right. now. Now, dammit!
But I’ve found myself, instead, zipping around the interwebs, with about 10 tabs open in my browser, surfing Pinterest, facebook, twitter and various blogs.
This is because I attended a really interesting event this past weekend called the Arkansas Women Bloggers Unplugged Conference.
I have a lot to say about what I learned and experienced there, but I’m not ready to blog about it in full just yet. Suffice to say there were boots (lots of them, courtesy of Country Outfitter, and they were oh-so-cute on all the gals), there was a marriage proposal (can I get an “awwwwwww”) and there was the amazing Ozark Folk Center, where I dropped some significant cash (well, credit) and came back with some handmade treasures that will show the world that I have truly adopted Arkansas as my state (for now, at least).
Anyway, I snapped a couple of photos in the craft village that I really love. I thought I’d share them and leave it at that. More to come on the conference and blogging inspiration, plus more info about a very special upcoming giveaway. You do not want to miss this giveaway.
But before I go, I have to give a shout out to Beth, Julie, Stephanie and Fawn, the ladies who put the conference together purely as a labor of love – just because they wanted to. They gave me my first taste of conference style learning that wasn’t work or school related, and it was both weird and wonderful to be learning for my sake, and mine alone. They are some pretty impressive women.
Enjoy! I’m off for a late-night stroll.

words that go to together, but I was entranced by this
beautiful machine in the quilting shop.
