Women at the EXPO.
Last year fate brought me a new friend. Our booths happened to be across from each other and we were laughing the at the first sentence. We both had Lotus flowers on our booths .. it just continued from there. My friend Candice is one of the best memories I have experienced from the Treating Yourself EXPO. The second we spotted each other this year we smiled from ear to ear! We were lucky enough to get to have diner at this EXPO and shared more than a few giggles. I can not believe we again did not get a photo together! I'll have to draw us again. She also has a fantastic product & incredible HEMP paper - which I have been drawing on and enjoying BIG TIME. http://www.quintessentialtips.com but never mind her product It is her smile and attitude and laughter that I already look forward to next year!
SO many wonderful women! They make me all proud to be a woman! Where do I begin?
Oh, LOL - although I like the women I only mostly got photos with men - tee hee hee something never change;-) Amy! My baking friend who made the cotton candy that everyone is talking about. She is talented and tiny and has a HUGE heart.
I see it every time I look at her. http://www.amyanonymous.ca
I finally got to meet Laurentine .. as sweet as can be and funny. One of my biggest fans and inspiration. Another friend I look forward to getting to know better.
"The" Jodie Emery came over to say hello to Storm and I and we were very happy to finally meet her, I watch Jodie's blog all the time and think that Cannabis culture is one of the best informative sites out there. Mark is the Prince of Pot - Jodie is the princess. She works very hard at trying to make a difference and is very educated on the subjects, sadly a little too close to home for her. She is very strong. Angie bought one of my originals I had planned for a friend that could not make it ( Yoda), so I figured it was fate. I am so happy that it went to Angie, it means a lot to me. Mary Jane - let's not forget her! Friends who I have met through FaceBook and came up to say hello! Patti, Cat, Jen, Marie... I was overwhelmed and think of someone different several times a day- I know I can't possibly remember everyone and many just faces! The Yoga lady - who is getting married! She was so nice, as was her mom. That mom from Texas... The older classy woman with her hubby who is tired of all the mixed medications! ALL EDUCATED.
And you know what- they were all there for the same reason! They all believe.
Male, female, straight, gay, doctors, stoners, lawyers, mothers and fathers! EVERYONE you can imagine was there at the EXPO! HOW can I not be inspired! I think I have to draw!
I have been lucky - The Green Reefer came back too! Decided to hang out in Canada a bit longer! We have had so much fun two completely different cartoonists also working together, literally with our comic strip for the GREATER GOOD! LOL had to laugh when we came back to reality (after the EXPO) and My hubby had The green Reefer cutting the grass! LOL I am blesses.
So not only do you get educated at the Treating Yourself EXPO if your lucky you meet some pretty amazing new people and they become friends. A few photos.
