I'm coming with Tinsell and Whimsy! Can't wait to meet everyone!

Karla Smith

Hello Miss Donna,

Love the Top Hat indeed. I missed you in Pleasanton.... I drove up to stay with friends who live in Danville. Such a beautiful little town. Since I had just joined ZNE about a month ago, I also went to my first ZNE event. I had a delightful time with so many ladies in Pleasanton. The fun was endless and I feel friendships budding.

Wish I could drive back and meet you and say hello to all whom I admire at Tinsel and Treasures on September 13th.

My trip was filled with exploring towns, boutiques, stores, private studio's, and many talents artists during my adventure. ( I'll be posting all about that on my blog real soon.)

Working on catching up on many things with my computer, blog, art projects, life, etc. I came back inspired after a week away from home.

I'll be returning for another event with ZNE again and maybe one day we will meet in person.

Enjoy your artistic journey as you create. I truly enjoy all you share on your blog.

Warmly with Hugs,


Girl, I can totally see you in a little embellished 'wasp' waisted number! Who cares about Elton? Go for it! Can't wait to see you!!!

Sounds like a great time wish I could go to the show.

Great hat, I love it!!! We always say; keep your brains together (meaning don't do anything strange), so we could use such a hat too! Have fun!


It's Labor Day....
Bet I can guess what you are doing right now. Your corseted top hat is divine! Hope everything is coming together for your show. It will be so great!

I've go a crown to prove it!!


I just stumbled on to your site and I love it! The hat is gorgeous and I can only imagine a matching tuxedo :D


Wouldn't miss it! Can't wait to see what you ladies have been creating. I think I'm gonna need to raid the kiddies piggie banks before I come. I'm sure they owe me big time.

Ohhh D~
I recieved my postcard from Tinsels and Treasures today Beautiful work displayed! I am saving it for future posterity? sp??? LOL :) I love the top hat, of course the work is immaculate and I expect no less from you! LOL

!Hugs, Ann-Denise

Oooooooooooooooooooo!!! How exciting!!!!! I wish I could go! xo


I will guess...creating crowning glories...perhaps some fit for a certain Pirate?
That's it I will now campaign for a move to California...never mind that it is 6000 miles from Europe...you gals and guys are having so much fun...Does it seem like most of the talent comes from California?


I love what you done with your "chapeau clac" Donna! I've never thought about decorating mine with Dresdens so far, but now you've got me new ideas!:)
Wish I could come to the show.
Have a fabulicious time!

Hello Ms. Donna-
I have the show on my calendar and, pending losts limbs or a burning house, I'll be there with the whole gang. I'll finally be able to put a face to the name. Looking soooooo forward to a creative mental health day. Until then...!


Hi Donna!
Love your blog... The hat is great!
Have fun at the Art Show:)



Hi Donna,
Sounds like so much fun. Wish I could be there. Love that top hat!! You are amazing, magical!!
Have a great weekend!


Love your blog Donna! I do craft shows too, and know how much work they are. I hope yours is a great success!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE that hat!!!
OK, THIS TIME I hope to be there! You WILL be there right???? I'll be the one wearing a disguise but I won't tell you what it is.
on another subject......the new Bachelor is Jason?


Donna, i hope your back is feeling better now...the show sounds like a lot of fun...i am SO loving what you did with that top hat, it looks fabulous!!!

Miss Maddie's

I think you'd look great in that tophat and tails. In fact you'd be the hit of the show if you showed up in such a swank outfit!
And if you turn it on it's top and reach inside what delight do you pull out of it? A furry little rabbit with a face like Johnny?? Ha Ha!
Hope that back is on the mend.
Enjoy the weekend!

What beauty fills my eyes everytime I visit. Ulla has been telling me all about the Danville show. It sounds like fun! Sorry I've been so absent. I'm just so busy right now.

Big Hugs!

Well I can hardly believe it... you have managed to recreate (are you psychic?!) the hat I wear every night when I take my two hour bubble bath... Needless to say, I'm a little disturbed, but then, who isn't.
(Notice that was a statement, and not a dangling something or other...)
I love what you create, but then you know that... I KNOW you and the rest of the uber-talented artists involved in "Tinsel and Treasures" will have an incredible show! I only wish I could be there to see "my" hat in person... (Tell Colleen to 'back off')

Hi Donna...hope you had a wonderful summer. Glad to have you back!
Love the top hat...very elegant! I'm not sure "elegant" is the right word...but it is!!



Can't wait...it's going to be so much fun!! I am loving that top hat...I want first dibbs ;--)

Kris Franklin
