I had these pictures saved to draft yesterday and was going to post after I got my journaling done for them but was so busy with work, I didn't have a chance to. I work part-time as a Health and Safety Director for a small shoe manufacturer in Sullivan, Missouri. Every year, I'm required by law to deliver OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) mandated training, which means I have to train over 300 people on 3 different shifts. So I had to hit the floor running as soon as I got back from CHA.
As it turns out, my new BFF, Mou Saha visited my blog yesterday even before I had a chance to post pics of us. And yes, you heard right. I didn't get a chance to meet Wilna- this time. I know without a doubt it will happen but this was just not the time, so I'm looking forward to what God has in store for me in the future. She came by the Piggy Tales booth on Sunday but I was already gone. Mou got to talk to her, though.
Now I have to tell you about Mou. Where do I start? The first thing I asked her was how to pronounce her name. It's MOE, yeah like the three stooges Moe. Ha ha. Sorry, Mou. She is the most amazing artist and if that weren't enough, I was more amazed at her humility. I mean, here is a HOF'er, SOY finalist, Making Memories Idol top 3 contestant, Rusty Pickle chef, etc. etc. etc. and she is so humble! I wanted her to be in the spotlight at the Piggy Tales booth, but she wanted to hide behind the counter and put kits together instead!! I couldn't believe it! We had such a fine time pal-ing around the convention center, looking at all the new goodies, doing make-n-takes! I am SO glad I had the opportunity to get to know one of my idols in this industry! I love you, Mou and miss you too! Can't wait to hug you again, hopefully really soon!
We had a fun time flirting with Tim Holtz. He is just amazing! I'm glad I got to keep something he made at his demo.
