WWC launch Party

 Last Friday I was thrilled to be invited to a launch party for the current issue of Where Women Create.
The event took place at a wonderful building in Mesa where all the women in the building were featured in the issue!

This wonderful store is called "Found" and it features the most delicious items from all over Europe and the States. Kristen Alber is the genius behind this awesome shop. (She made the cover of the magazine)
It was wonderful to see Jo Packham there. The last few times we were at an event together I never really got a chance to speak with her, so this was a rare treat.

 Kristen's shop is absolutely stunning. There is something wonderful in every corner.


 The really cool "word" art that hangs all over the shop is created by Rebecca Puig of Sugarboo, who is also featured in the issue.
This was taken in Found's "sister" store, Domestic Bliss. It is also located in the same building and is filled with more of Rebecca's Word Art.
You probably can't tell from this pic, but there is a lot more color in "Domestic Bliss" than in "Found"

 Back in "Found"... I loved these place mats. They are made of paper, disposable, and oh so cute!!And... you guessed it... Angie Cook of "Cake" is also featured in the magazine
What a fabulous idea!!!! Makes me want to start looking for vintage silver spoons!

It really was a very nice event and I am very thankful to have been invited. Several more talented women from the building are also in the magazine. It was fun to see some local gals in there!

And speaking of wonderful gals in the magazine.... Our dear friend Suzan from Old Grey Mare is in this issue too!!!!  Suzanne was one of the gals who won a spread in WWC during the Where Bloggers Create party. I know several others will be joining her soon!

Hello Karen

Thank you for the shout out <3. I wish those stores had been there when I was trekking back and forth to Tucson when my son was in college. If they WERE there, do not tell me, or I will be depressed that I missed out.

Jo is just a doll, so fun to be with. Looks like you all had a wonderful time.

Hi Karen,
Thanks for sharing such a wonderful event. I just love all the shop pretties. It must have been hard resisting spending a fortune!

These creative women certainly deserved to be part of the magazine.
