I have many good memories of one of my blog followers. Please click on her name for more information about her.
JoAnn Deck gave me a tour of TLD Design Center & Gallery, Westmont, Illinois, when I finally visited the shop after seeing Tammy at the Naperville Riverwalk Art Fair and the Morton Arboretum, west side, in a small art fair. This tour of the shop opened a whole new world to me, and I owe her a debt of gratitude as this really changed my life. She was in the first class I took where I got to see first hand her incredible creativity and artistic abilities. JoAnn wrote about me on her blog when I was an Emerging Artist in Geneva, Illinois in 2008, with my bead weaving jewelry. Her post was dated 8/21/2008 which you can find through the archive link:
I like to think that JoAnn is watching over us from heaven in her new comfy purple chair.
