Earlier this summer I joined a Facebook group for "Texas Bloggers" started by Jennifer from Finding My Way In Texas. I have been know to be a little shy until I get to know people, but I was determined to jump in with both feet. I jumped at the first opportunity to meet Jennifer at a craft show she was participating in over in Fort Worth. She was an absolute delight and from then on I had the bug to meet other members of the group. Enter the first DFW Blogger Event. I co-hosted with two other ladies from the group: Sarah from City Girl Gone Country and Taylor from Goings On In Texas. It was held at A Piece of Work where you can socialize, indulge in some wine and create a painting - which may or may not be suitable for display in your home. Anyway, I will not dwell on my lack of artistic ability cuz let me tell you...it was a blast!!!!

I can't close this post without sending a shout out to Kristen at Little Laws Prints. If you are ever in the market for party accessories, stationery or invitations she is your gal!!!! Her customer service is second to none...talk about speedy turnaround...WOW!!! I told her what I had in mind for the event and she had proofs ready for me to look at in less than a day...it was like she was reading my mind. She also went above and beyond for me when I had trouble with my Paypal account and made sure that everything arrived on time. She provided the banner, tent cards for the food and the little button rounds for the favor boxes - which I thought were the perfect final touch for the boxes.
Thank you so much to all the ladies that joined us for this fun evening....I am already looking forward to the next time that we can all get together. And a special thanks to Sarah, April, and Becky for allowing me to grab some of your photos.....there were so many talented photographers that I didn't see much point in getting out my camera and fighting the more often than not, non-operating flash.
I am sorry that I didn't grab pics of everyone, but this post is getting crazy long and I am fading quickly. Please know that I feel blessed to have met each and every one of you....in the words of Nicole you are all the "bee's knees"!!!!!
