Mad Hatter Ball, "A Big To-do about Art"

Dana at Calico Cat Press has a post about the up coming Mad Matter Ball in Eureka Springs,Ar.It is October 24th at the Crescent Hotel.This event is the biggest fundraiser of the year for the Eureka Springs School of Art.
This is me 2 years ago at the Ball. I wish you could see my hat and wings better.My daughter helped with my hair and makeup(which I never wear). I was wearing the prom dress I made her.I had on black wings and the hat was about a foot taller than you can see and it had a black veil.My daughter (the photographer) forgot to take pictures of me when we were all done.Adam did not even know me when he walked in the door.I was greeting people at the door as they came in the Crescent.
Plan a trip the Eureka for this event.You will have a great time.Oh! and BUY ART!!

p.s how hard was it sewing that lace?
does amber know how much you love her?

How did you do that?
The lace was not too hard, what was hard was finding a dress that a 17 year old likes when she was not a size 3.We both had a good cry at the mall, then we went to the fabric store.All her friends just loved her dress.

You can copy photos from the web to your desktop. Although it is kind of uh hum, illegal, when they are copyright protected. But I knew you wouldn't care if I did. Then I posted it right to my blog as I would any photo, and I made the text a link so it comes back to you.
