There is a lot to post about today, so bear with me!
First of all, we have a winner for the necklace giveaway. I can't believe the wonderful response that was shown and totally appreciate all of your warm comments. It made me feel so very special, what a fabulous anniversary celebration for my blog of one year! And so cool to hear from so many new ladies!
Okay, drum roll please.....and the winner is Julie from Prairie Thistle!!
Congratulations Julie!!! Please email me your address and I'll get the little bee necklace off to you asap.
Next, I received a very special package in the mail yesterday. My heart started pumping very fast when I realized it was from FRANCE! I have a passion for France, and anything French! I received the most darling little tiny book from my blogging friend Esther. And along with that gift, she sent the most amazing collection of French papers, from books, and a darling collage piece. WOW! I am blown away. THANK YOU ESTHER. I can't tell you how you brightened my day, my week!! Your heart is as big as your beautiful country. I needed something to bring a smile to me, with my little Chester being sick, and this was the perfect medicine.
This little book Esther made has a leather cover, and little pages inside. Isn't it adorable?
And last, but not least by any means!! My friend Diana Frey and I taught a fun workshop this weekend. It was a two day class, packed with lessons in etching, PMC and cold connections. I tried to include pictures of everyone, but a few escaped the camera!! The class was called A Charming Romance, and we filled it with 12 students. We taught how to make charms from cold molds, joining metals and assemblage.
We had soooo much fun with the best group of ladies. Whew, everyone was tuckered out at the end of two days, but look at the smiles on everyone's faces.
Thanks to Polly, Libby, Kat, Tanya, Lesa, Susan, Stephanie (missing photo), Karen, Kathy, Lynn, Terry and Teresa (missing photo).
Thanks for coming to the class ladies, we loved it!
We'll be repeating the class in April, and the class has a few seats left if you would like to take part. Just contact Diana, and we'll get you signed up.
Whew, that's it for now. I'm busy organizing and packing for Adorn Me coming up. I leave for Houston March 1!
Take care. See you soon!
