SAMA 2009 Conference

I've just returned home from the 2009 Society of American Mosaic Artists (SAMA) conference. It was my third conference and was so much fun! I met lots of my online friends in person, I stayed up waaaaaayyy too late every single night talking with my roommates, and my brain is buzzing with all the new ideas that keep crowding in. That is why I go to the conference. It's always a great inspiration to me. I was also a vendor this year (picture above is Crystal Thomas's that I stole from her flickr site - full of great images from the conference!) selling my books and notecards and postcards. Great way to meet people!

Yay!!!! It was the best - such a highlight. I'm glad I went, as I very nearly didn't. I think it's one of those *great* moments in my life :)
