The Fillmore and Extra Links

 My show over the weekend was super successful!  It has been a while since I have had such a great show!
 The venue was gorgeous!  It was at the Fillmore in Detroit, and these pictures were the view all around me for the weekend.
 We met lots of great artists and crafters and everyone seemed very festive and cheerful.  The music rocked and the bar was open and people were busy shopping for gifts!

I've got lots to do this week, but I wanted to drop in to share these pics with you and to post last week's Extra links.  Here they are:
