Happy Camper

What makes a happy camper?

Making paper dolls -- something I've never done -- with lots of wonderful, energetic, creative, delightful people, who inspire and energize you! That makes me happy!

Getting to see your blog buddy, Joanne (whom I'd not seen in person since Artiscape a year ago and who graciously invited me to her home for a paper doll art retreat, put me in a comfy bed with lots of good Somerset magazines and treats at the bedside and more than generously shared her supplies with us all. That's happy!
Getting to meet fellow blogger Karen, whose blog I've visited for ages -- and meet her face to face! (Seen here in our Show and Tell time!) My smile is getting even bigger!

Spending time in Joanne's home, filled with her own incredibly divine art -- along with that from various swaps and trades she has done (the panels on the wall behind Karen and me are both Joanne's and others' work). (Big smile, big inspiration!)

Having my first mint julep -- at breakfast! (Who's not happy now?!)

Being invited by Catherine to her home for a beautiful brunch... (Happiness is getting better and better!)

...and learning a new recipe -- poached eggs atop spinach, topped with tomatoes and herbs. That made me very happy, too!

And enjoying it with old and new friends! Happy to the max!

The photos Joanne took are on her blog, Ad Libitum, with a more detailed look at everything we did, so do link over if you'd like! And Beth B. posted on Vintage Sweets, too! You'll see some of the wonderful people I met there, and her photos are better than mine!

I'll be posting pix of my dolls (completed -- in the photo here, they're on their way, but not done!). And, I might add, Joanne created a monster. These dolls are WAY too much fun!
