Then it was back to the booth and finishing samples.

Hello Dyan,

seems you had a lovely time at CHA !
Luckily for us Europeans there is youtube to catch up on the hottest news.

So, I loved seeing you demoing the new "inkpad". Hope i get my hands on it somewhere here ..; or otherwise it means ordering in the US like so many things !

You look great as a British Queen in her sleigh in the US ! They should have more like you..; then we should at least have a lot of laughs :)

I spotted your tattoo !! Saw it is a face, but can you tell a bit more about it ? Read somewhere you got it for your birthday, so congratulations !

I think we are about the same age... and I gave myself a tattoo on my 45 th past year. I wanted tattoos my whole life but as a teacher there was always the hesitation, should I do it or not..

Things happened in my life and I think I'm old enough to decide for myself that I could have one !
If you are interested, you can read the story here :

You are someone I admire for your humor and creativity and "no nonsense" ( but that's British I guess...LOL) and it's so nice to see you have art on your body like I do :)

I do admit I'm considering a second tattoo ..; a sleeve on my right arm... I just have to let the designs I want in it simmer a bit more in my head so it comes together in a "collage" I like...

Yay, for color and joy and ART !

greetings from Belgium
