How to spot me at Sewing Summit

Can't WAIT to get my arse on that plane and join several hundred of my bloggy friends in Utah this weekend! But, however will we recognize each other? I don't exactly look like my cartoon icon. I thought I would post some pictures of myself so that you can recognize me.

Since I rarely take a photo of myself (apparently), all I have that is reasonably recent are these shots by my 4 year old....nasty flash, head cut off, good stuff! And, yes, I am blogging (my kids know where to find me when I go AWOL)!


Yikes! I can only go up from there, people!

Imagine me like this.....big smile on my face as I arrive to register, attend classes and such. Probably wearing some impractical shoes that I adore, a cute clutch in hand or maybe my messenger bag slung over my body. Makeup on, hair presentable, clothes without kid snot on them.

And, at around 9 pm: sweat pants of some variety, pony tail, reclined with knitting in hand, a half-drunk bottle of wine in a brown bag by my side (and probably some chocolate, too). Talking far too much, and laughing way too loud!

So, if you are at Sewing Summit and spot either of the above creatures, be sure to run over and say hi. Better yet, give me a big squishy hug or a sloppy kiss, both of which I will return with enthusiasm- we are already old friends, right?

Thanks, Kristie! You are hilarious. I like you already. :) I'm so excited!

Have fun Kristie. I think you look very cute and real in your pics.

Bet you still have snot somewhere on your clothes. That stuff is like poster paint. Impossible to get out.

Aw, you're a cutie! I think I'm doing the wrong thing this weekend ... I won't be at the Sewing Summit, but that doesn't mean I can't have a brown bag of wine and knitting needles in hand ...
