I was *sooo* nervous to meet them in person. I've known Kristen online for over two years now, and Amanda for at least a year, but meeting someone in person is so much different. What if they realized I'm the biggest dork ever, and allowed that to stop them from liking me?
Kristen's Whore Cup
I don't have a good after picture of Hootie or Kristen's Whore Cup yet, but Amanda so kindly provided me an after-shot of her Pirate Mug. I had never painted ceramics before, so I wasn't sure what to expect. The colors turned a lot darker, the surface somewhat glossy, and the before pieces all had a powdered feel to them that doesn't exist now.
We also took a scenic tour of the local area craft stores, hitting up a local yarn store, then a Joanns and a Michaels. We got yarnie goodness, and some scrapbooking supplies so Man could help Kristen
learn to spell and I make project journals. This is a pretty bad picture, but it's my project journal. I've never really made anything paper crafty either, and well, Man did all the binding work, but I'm still proud of using those stamps! :)
We also did some touristy good fun stuff, and I'd say overall I really liked the little look I got at Colorado, and had a rockin' good time with my fellow Owlies. Where shall we go next, girls?
Myself, Man, and Kristen at Red Rocks, where we
tried to sneak into a concert went to see the view. There's more pictures and random fun on my blog and also on Facebook.
