it was a bella-bration!

I'm back from Silver Bella...what a party it was! It was so much fun meeting new people and reuniting with old friends.

Want to see what I made in my classes?

First up, Rosary-inspired necklace with Kaari Meng. I cannot believe that I really made this necklace. I mean, just look at how beautiful...


Next, I made this adorable little snowman in Jennifer Murphy's class...


Then I snipped feathers like crazy to fashion this bird in Denise Sharp's class...


The next day, bright and early, I learned how to make this fun mobile in Charlotte Lyon's class...


And, after a great lunch & presentation by Jo Packham, I made this sweet little birdy in another Jennifer Murphy's class.


I have so much more to show and tell but Alfredo is a bit under the weather and needs extra loving today.

Speaking of the little guy, while I was snapping these photos he said "I have a problem!"

Alarmed but amused by his choice of words I said "What's going on?!" He replied "My hippo keeps eating my other animals and I don't know how to make him stop!"

"Maybe he needs a time-out" I suggested.
"No, he's just really hungry" said Alfredo. "Give him a bowl of candy!"

Amy,
Thanks for showing all your projects! I can't believe how beautiful your necklace turned out...you really made it "yours"! I am now encouraged to get back and tweak mine a bit.

It was such a pleasure to meet you in person! Everyone who knows you (well, everyone I have talked to) says you are so genuinely kind and sweet and now I can agree!


Darling little Alfredo...he is so funny and so smart!
