1  Re: Traveling Little Visitor Swap Round 23 Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by phoenixfiredesigns on: June 23, 2016 07:51:11 PM
I had a meeting with the store west elm today about possibly incorporating some of my jewelry in their "LOCAL" program. The store is in an area called Hyde Park that's right next to Downtown Tampa. I had to park up on the top floor of the parking garage and you could see part of the skyline peeking out above the trees:

Of course, my appointment was 5:20pm which meant I was stuck smack dab in the middle of rush hour and what should have been a 30 minute drive turned into a 3 hour round trip due to traffic! Angry The peacefulness of the pic is a lie! Cheesy

Nice!!  Grin Haven't gotten to see Dory yet. Sounds fun. I love that it was a "blue" carpet too. Cheesy

We had a big show this weekend at a historic ballroom in St. Petersburg called The Coliseum. Can you spot me & Hatty in this pic?  Grin This is during set up before the show opened:



I don't blame you if you need help! I'm pretty little in the shot so she's microscopic! I've got her on my palm.


Fortunately for me, we were so busy I never got any other pics. Unfortunate for her but I was happy it was a packed house!

I do a market called Pierce Street in the fall/winter and yesterday was the first of the summer markets, so we stopped by to see how it was. (Most markets/craft shows stop in late April/early May because it just gets too hot so this was a new test by the organizers of the market to see if continuing with a morning market with reduced hours was worthwhile or not.)

It's right on the waterfront next to the Clearwater Harbor Marina so we stopped to show Hatty the view of the multi-million dollar yachts, sailboats and other ships.



The bridge at the top of the screen takes you to Clearwater Beach proper. But the weather started to shift and we hit some really heavy thunderstorms on the way home. This was the view from a different bridge we cross to get back home. (There's a lot of water around here! LOL)



As you can see, the storm clouds were very low and moving quickly. There was a TON of lightning strikes coming from this cloud too but I was driving so I just snapped a quick shot and couldn't wait and time for a better one.

I received from kbrison! She used a variety of my themes and interests across the entire pocket letter.





She came up with so many unique and interesting items for the pockets! Including cards, stickers, an owl patch, die cuts, tags, etc. They all matched the theme of the card!



Details:

The Mickey uses a washi tape roll (which she included loose since it wouldn't fit in a pocket)


I love the quilled daffodils!


I also love the flames on the phoenix:


Thank you so much, kbrison! I love the range of techniques as well as all the awesome goodies. Grin

The local comic book store had a "Civil War" day and had three awesome cosplayers dressed as Captain America, Black Panther and The Winter Soldier posing for photos. I told them Hatty was visiting from Australia and they were nice enough to pose with her for a pic. Grin

Well tomorrow should be a rainy day. I just hope power doesn't go out.

There is a distinct possibility I may not make it to the post office tomorrow. In my defense, I have a good excuse. Cheesy

What a cute Finding Dory display! Grin

I've never heard of Vivid before but it sounds cool. The idea reminds me of the projection show they do on the Castle at Magic Kingdom.

We missed pretty much everything at Megacon because we spent the entire day in one line or another, but that's ok. I got my pic with Doc, the Delorean and got an autograph so it was still a success!

Hatty hasn't been up to much this week. Though I did have to run over to the Christmas store. I needed some small ornaments for a custom order and it was the only place I could think of to find some this time of year! The store is pretty barren this time of year but it's still fun.

In the off season, Santa likes to bake:


They have village displays up year-round and one of them was Disney themed!


Hatty also got a kick out of the tropical Florida display:


I'm not sure what we're up to this weekend, but there's apparently a tropic storm that might come our way Monday so we'll see how the weather holds out.

I think my computer hates Craftster! I haven't received notifications from this thread since early this month even though I'm still marked to receive updates. Frustrated!!!  Sorry to have missed your birthday, Phoenixfire. Hope it was a happy one!
Thank you! It was a very fun 3-day weekend! Grin

I was at MegaCon in Orlando yesterday and got a photo and autograph with the amazing Christopher Lloyd!! Back to the Future is my all-time favorite movie so I was just over the moon to have had the opportunity to see him!



Today I'm recovering. LOL But I did finally start putting a BIG dent in my ATC's the other night and I already have a bunch of the extras. So I have a few more to make. But I'm feeling good about my progress right now. Grin

Clara and I are horribly late to the party  Embarrassed But we have been having our own fun!

I am slowly on the mend and we have some fun adventures planned soon!
Yay! It's awesome getting to see some of her adventures so far. Sorry you've been sick. Hope you are feeling better!

Unfortunately, we spent the entire day in one line or another so I actually didn't manage to get any pics, let alone any with Hatty. Cry I totally wanted to get a bunch of cosplay pics and stuff...but nope. We just never wound up having time. But it was still a ton of fun! I've just been recovering today.  Cheesy
