The Ladies Danced – ZNE 2009

The Ladies Danced

Okay, that’s the name of this piece but it could also describe my experience at ZNE 2009!

Victorian Tea Party in a Cigar Box

Victorian Tea Party in a Cigar Box

Well if you’re into Vintage, Victorian, Antique or Mixed Media, this was definitely the place to be. I’ve discovered as an Artist trying to stay out of the corporate maze that Networking is a true necessity and a great experience.  At ZNE we met so many unique Artists and visitors.  We were blessed with having the first table at the door (so they saw my goofy smile on the way in and on the way way out! LOL) .  I’ve always been amazed by people that could turn sticks and stones into Beauty and Art.  And they were there. And even better there were many teaching others how to do the same! Kids passed by with huge proud smiles on their faces after having done a Make and Take. Adults whispered of their excitement after finding a doll or toy or game they hadn’t seen since childhood. Memories rushed in!  We even had the pleasure of hearing Jon Troast sing as he performed Live. All in All, it was a great positive energy and a lot of playful spirit!
I loved it and can’t wait until the next one.

 In Beverlys words “I’m a self taught artist who found herself retired on disability before I was ready to retire.  I’ve always been a crafter of sorts, creating wedding flowers, and sketching here and there, but nothing like canvas work.  Finding that I could even paint was a surprise to me and I’m so thankful that God has opened a new door for me to express myself! 

And we’re thankful too Beverly.  This beautiful dramatic page is inspiring and positive!

Beverly has won a great Journaling package including a Moleskine Journal, Watercolor pencils, color sharpies, a chipboard book, word stamps and more!
