    This was the most wonderful way to spend my last day of vacation. I am such a fan of Anne's work, and to be able to watch it live was just incredible. My first experience with Anne's work, was back in 1993 or maybe in early 1994 - In October 1993, I gave birth to my daughter, Stephanie, she was not suppose to be born until Dec 25, but she wanted out in this world. She was born weighing 2 lbs, 1 oz. She said in the NICU until Dec 15. On those for occasions I would go out to buy things to finish the nursery - I came across a 5 X 7 copy of a large pumpkin with a teeny, tiny baby on top of it. It made me think of my Stephanie beginning and that is how I started decorating her room. In the last 32 years, I have collected many other photos, cards, Anne Geddes' baby dolls, books and much more. I absolutely love all of her work. I want to thank everyone that had anything to do with putting the live event/class together. And for it to be FREE with a FREE pdf of the finished project is just what an older, newly retired person needed. Thanks to every, especially Anne and her daughter, Stephanie.
