Meet my talented and creative friends!

Friday I took off for a fun and creative time at my friend Lara's beautiful home. Lara is an amazing, amazing photographer and a super fun girl to hang out with! Our friends Beth, Vicky, Natalie and Susan joined us and we just had a blast creating and catching up with each other...

Vicky is getting married this week and was decoupaging a little box for the rings...

Here is my creation in progress....!

Susan makes the cutest doggie outfits out of recycled clothing!

Lara has a wonderfully witty blog called Modern Prairie Girl, and her pictures always leave me in awe... I loved her recent post about Cindy's Tarte sale, especially since I couldn't be there!!!

Lara takes wonderful dog pictures for the Humane Society, you have to check them out, they are just too cute!!!

She also opened the bag about a new photography venture with Cindy involving this larger than life tree outside of Cindy's barn, and I can't wait to see what these two incredibly talented gals will be concocting together!!!!

Lara took some absolutely exquisite pictures for Vicky and Beth's business, called Gossamer Designs. Gossamer was featured in the "Where Women Create" magazine a few issues back, under the title "Cowgirl High Style meets Bohemian Chic"! These two are so creative, and true magicians at altering slips and crinolines, and layering and embellishing...!! They also create amazing crowns and jewelry! I snapped a picture of Lara modelling one of their adorable creations:

Vicky and Beth are opening a studio in Portland soon, and I can't wait to visit and check it out, I know it is going to be amazing!! Check their blog out! I hope they don't mind, but I had to "borrow" these amazing pictures taken by Lara, they are simply breathtaking!

It made my week :)

Thank you ladies and to Lara for hosting a fun afternoon! Beth
