I and several coworkers who are makers of various items from upcycled old furniture, to musical instruments, to pens and jewelry had the opportunity to visit with them in a round table discussion and talk about the things we make and our inspirations for them. At the same time we learned several thing from them about blogging and the beneficial connections you can make through connecting with others and writing about things you have knowledge and insights about.
Some of those I had the pleasure to meet and their own blogs can be seen at the links below.

I also had the pleasure of making one of the gifts Delta presented to them during their stay. Below is the completed lineup before wrapping them up for delivery. I was also an appropriate color for the upcoming 4th of July holiday!

Delta had many other great treats and experiences for them during their stay that I wasn't a part of, but I was honored for the small part I did get to play in the event.
