I had the pleasure of experiencing a first-time Tarot card reading with Alyson of Dreaming Lion Tarot last Saturday -- the appointment, reading, and conversation were absolutely fabulous. (I posted a full write-up over at my blog earlier in the week.)

Saturday was a glorious afternoon At The Warehouse -- good conversation, beautiful new furniture to admire, tasty treats, remarkable crafters to watch "in action." Thanks for another great day!

I agree that it's really great to see the crafters in action. And they are always happy to stop and chat about what they are working on. Teri Faul is going to make a stained glass piece for my newly renovated apartment and I can't wait to talk colors.
