Off to Adorn Me!

Getting on a jet plane for Houston!

Well, the time is finally here. I get on a plane in the dark hours of the morning tomorrow and head to Houston for the brand new, all jewelry retreat, Adorn Me. I will take park in a Meet & Greet on Monday night, and look forward to meeting as many ladies as I can. I'm taking some classes at the retreat as well as teaching two workshops, one almost everyday. Instructors like Melissa Manley, Thomas Mann, and Keith Lo Bue. These are folks I've wanted to take classes from for a long time, so this opportunity is fabulous. I can't wait to share what I learn with you, and the projects that come out of the workshops.

If any of you reading this are in a class, please know how excited I am to have you. I hope to make you feel welcome, and thrilled you chose me to spend the day with.

If you can't be there this time, there will be many other opportunities to get instruction from these teachers down the road. I've been practicing my ya' all drawl, and polished up my boots, so I think I'm ready to go kickin' around down there. I'll miss keeping up with what goes on with my blogging sisters, so please fill me in when I return, March 8th.
In the mean time, may your heart be overflowing with love of your craft, your hands busy creating, and your ideas flowing like fresh spring water.

Riki, it was such a pleasure to meet you at Adorn Me. I am the redhead with the glazed, information-overload look on her face that bought the Parisian necklace right off of your neck on Friday! I am wearing it today and the girls in the office are going crazy for it. Hahahaha, it's mine, it's mine, it's mine!!!!
I just loved the retreat, didn't you? I hope to go next year also. I look forward to seeing you again. Thanks for the beautiful necklace. Marcy
