RAW Stimulus Show - Madison

Last Wednesday night I participated in a RAW Madison Show at Segredo’s.  It was AMAZING!  It was such a unique experience and I had a really good time doing it.  Not only did I get a new dress, new shoes, my hair done, a ‘night out’ with my hubby, but I got to meet and see some truly amazing artists.  rawstimulusmarch2012-49The musical entertainment was amazing – three different bands, a great DJ, and a dancer.  rawstimulusmarch2012-66I even saw my very first fashion show – so cool!  I really hope to attend one just as an observer at least once in the future and even be an artist again – maybe for my art quilts next time….hmmm…

Here are some of the photo’s that Angela Voell of Green Paint Photography took of me (head shots were part of being in the show and a video is being made too…I’ll be sure to post that as well)  and my booth:

  1. Cool --- thanks for sharing photos so we can see what it all was! So cool!
    Great to have a supportive husband! Isn't it wonderful? YES!
