    How Many Craftistas Have You Met In Person?

    Inspired by my meeting the Seattle gals last week, I started writing a list in my head of all the gals I've met IRL through Get Crafty. I was surprised at how long it is and was curious to share my list and hear who else has met up with other craftistas offline. Off the top of my head:

    starfish
    cosmicxx
    zylle_blue
    tallulah
    punky brewster
    jo
    athos
    lisalisa
    lilyblue
    guhrrl
    afrodite
    bloodredrose
    susan*s
    astoria
    peppermintsquar
    sepiatone
    sublimestitcher
    mishymisu
    kickarse
    robotgirl
    hester
    anmeikitty
    puffgirl

    I'm sure there's a couple gals I've neglected to include. And I'd be thrilled if I ever crossed paths with researchasaurus and martita.

    Being in New York afforded me the opportunity to meet lots of Craftistas. So many in fact I am sure that I don't remember them all. I'm not so sure that everyone is still active on the boards or has the same screen name, but here's what I can come up with:

    lindastar
    puffgirl
    blueduvet
    cowgirly
    ursonate
    stellargirl
    Bonnell99
    charlotterusse
    ladymisskayte
    butterflytwish
    karistar
    aesthetica
    inkbleed
    lorelei
    lacey
    pl_sausage_queen
    candi
    lulabelle
    quixotic
    jangrl
    athos
    susan*s
    anmeikitty (I think... at a craftista holiday party like two years ago?)
    afrodite (briefly, at her reading in NYC)
    sublimestitcher (briefly, at her gallery opening in NYC)

    I know there must be others. I should be keeping a list!

    You guys are so lucky! I think there are a couple of other Getcrafty people in my area (Denver), but I've never met them. I do know one or two Craftistas through another (non-crafty-specific) forum we're also on together - but they're still geographically far away from me.

    Well, I've met Snufkin in person, but she apparently hasn't met me! :P

    Other than that, it's hard for me to keep track of who is on Getcrafty, who is on Supernaturale, and who is on other online places for me to say definitively who I've met. (Plus there are all those people I just *feel* like I've met, even though I just see them online all the time.)

    So here are the ones who I know are on Getcrafty, and who I've definitely met:

    Snufkin
    Athos
    Deborahthecraft
    Susan*s
    Anmeikitty

    And more, but I just can't remember which online community they're currently on!

    punkybrewster
    athos
    cornie
    stella
    guhrrl

    none. not many live near me (I know there are a few in Richmond or DC, but I don't go to either place too much). Sheena (AirForceLady? something like that) used to live in the same town I live in, but we never got to meet -- she's moved now, I think. Plus meeting new people puts me in a blind panic, so I haven't made that much of an effort.

    so I'm kind of jealous of y'all with the twenty-person lists, but also not jealous because I'd probably keel over in a dead faint from nervousness.

    Hey, me too, lunar rodent girl! (Do you remember *that* thread?!!) I can feel that I 'know' some craftistas or glitterati, but have never met any and don't exactly want to. A pretty close e-friend of mine from another list called me post hurricanes and I just about freaked. Managed to take a deep breath and chat for a minute, but it left me more shattered than the 'canes did.

    I love the *idea* of meeting new people, and I love having friends, but meeting new people gives me a lot of anxiety, too. And I have to say the nervousness is even more intense when I'm meeting Craftistas, because not only do I have this image in my head that they're going to be really amazing and cool ... but the Craftistas I've met in person actually are as great in person as I expect them to be (a very rare occurrence)!
