Hello you crafty folk! This weekend I had the chance to meet the nicest, most gracious fashionable man of all. Tim Gunn. It was quite an event! The whole process began weeks ago when the fashion show at Southpark was announced featuring his appearance. I scrambled to get a ticket only to get the number for the PR firm in ATL. I was able to get a seat for myself and two more for students.

Meanwhile, back at school, the essay contest was cooking away. The winners being two young ladies very passionate about fashion and why meeting Tim Gunn would be thrilling.

Friday night before was sleepless as I finished loose ends on my ensemble (stitched by my Apparel 2 students!), prepared our small gift of a letter, the winning essays and a high school polo while listening as my husband prepared for a arts and craft show. Yes two of this year's biggest events happening on the same day.

Husband was off, I napped for a couple of hours. The 11am (OK more like 1120) lunch with the girls at the Cheesecake Factory was perfect. Both students were dressed immaculately as well as polite and great at conversation. We talked about high school, college and summer plans.  One of the girls is off to NCSU in the fall as a student in the textiles program.  The younger of the two is looking forward to beach trips, volley ball camp and her senior year.

After the Cheesecake factory awarded us with complimentary meals, we walked the stretch to our 12:30 seats...

Hello all you DIVALICIOUS people!  Welcome to my new and awesome blog.  Along with my trusty PETER - we want to conquer the craft world.  Ok maybe not really conquer but have fun, blog, learn some new and crafty stuff and be a part of the world of 2010.

So the first official Diva event is a craft show in Oak Ridge NC.  But I won't be there.  My husband is taking some of my bags to peddle beside his awesome crazy paintings.

Guess where I will be?  I will be meeting two great students and meeting TIM GUNN.  That's right I am going to a local mall, watching a fashion show and waiting for my photo opp!
