Creative fun

Whew!

I'm between classes this last week, and had a fabulous visitor.  Charlene, of My Heart's Ease, from Texas, stayed in CA for a few extra days after our pmc class.  We had so much fun, and found a few minutes to solder up some fun pendants.

Oh how I love to solder those rhinestones, too much fun!

Come on back any time Charlene, loved having you visit!  Charlene now has a Havanese, after seeing how cute our Maddie was, she got one not long after. So we are truly "dog sisters" or something like that.  Now if we could just get them closer so they can meet!

Hope to see you in my classes next weekend at Gilding the Lily in Fullerton, CA. 
Saturday is full, but there are a few openings on Sunday!



And on with the AG Blog Hop.....
