fins and fangs- yes they do go together just read and see

I just got back from a purely magical weekend in Manhattan Beach attending and teaching at Kim Caldwell's Mermaid event. Kim is beyond talented at event planning .No detail is left unattended EVERYTHING ran like pure magic. From the vendor night to the cupcake party with a tour bus ride to the flea markets and antique stores. 4 different classes where taught and Make and Takes ,Swaps and Dress Up contest where all a part of this magic . At one of the wonderful luncheons Jenny Doh gave one of her inspiring lectures . Dearest Maija introduced me to the chocolate martini and for those who joined us in the evenings at the Sweet Belamr hotel lounge and bar, you all know I Loved them!! I did not have the mac and cheese. But I think Danielle had it every night ? I have to say the best part was hanging with the gals . And an extra treat was meeting dear Renee and Lisa at Houston's sunday night .Bless them for putting up with my hyped up personality as I tend to get a bit hyper when over stimulated .Sorry... Guess this makes me kind of like a kitty cat at least that is how my Boo Boo was ,but I do not bite thank goodness ??? Now for the name contest HMMMM I have such a hard time with names and am guilty of calling everyone Sweetie and Dear ( old age) but on my drive home I practiced putting the names to faces in my head..... Julie, Karla, Char , Priscilla, Terry, Christine, Jessie, Jennifer, Maija , Sherry, Cheryl, Val , Kim , Danielle Melissa, Maureen,Holly, Karin, Jane ,Jenny ,Michele, kay ellen, Denise ,Beth ,Sherry, Cynthia Jamie....... How am I doing?? I know I have left many out ,so sorry Dears and Sweeties .Oh and I am still working on the Camera issue .My new camera came in the mail just in time to take to the event. But I am still trying to figure out how to load the pictures. So to give you a visual to go with this post I am adding a funny You Tube short . This does not have anything to do with the mermaid weekend except that I found mermaids love vampires . Lets not go there!!! Hope this makes you laugh, that is if you are a Twilight , True Blood fan or both. Thanks Michele for linking this on your blog I found it when visitng your blog. Michelle is the lovely owner of Paper Tales . Sure hope to teach there soon!!!
