Treasures, Swaps and Gifts

The Mermaid weekend was jam packed with amazing eye candy, either to buy or make! The vendor night was amazing. I didn't have a chance to photograph each of the vendor tables since I tend to get overwhelmed and cannot think on my feet with a camera in my hand. Shop ~ take pictures ~ Shop ~ take pictures! I'm sure you know which one of those two ideas wins out!

I am completely amazed at some of the mermaid blogs and how they thought to take pictures of each and every person, all the vendor tables, every minute of the event, and all the highlights of this wonderful weekend. I, on the other hand, could barely contain the minute to minute sensory overload of what was taking place. So here I am, doing my best to bring you more photos of the beautiful class projects I finally finished, a few gifts from some loving friends and a couple of items I purchased.

Hi Cathy!
Your post is beautiful! It was such a pleasure to finally meet you after all this time. You're a doll and I'm so happy we're friends. Boy did you get a lot of goodies! I see my mermaid needles and pins book in there. It matches perfectly with all that aqua!
