Silver Bella...

I just returned home from Silver Bella, and it's all too much to even wrap my head around- I'm not sure where to begin. Hmmmm.

Well to start with it was a whirlwind of fun, beauty and talent.... I met so many wonderful ladies- miss Bella herself- Teresa, all the other instructors, the guest speaker- Jo Packam of Where Women Create... and the bright shinny 200+ ladies who attended.

I think I had around 130 students in my workshops and I was overwhelmed by the kindness, talent, and just plan good mojo surrounding me each day. Thanks to all who patiently listened to me formulate my ideas- this Mommy Brain of mine is a little thick some days- but I was so happy with how everyone's pieces came out. I wish I had had a photographer on hand! While I remembered to photograph everyone at work, I completely forgot to take image of the finished snowman... but I shot a few of the Bundle Up Birdie Shadow Boxes.

For anyone interested, I may (if I can get it all together!) be selling a few additional kits from these two projects. Email me if you're interested...

More photos soon- I have to chat about what I saw, who I met, and all the goodness- but it has to sink in a little more... ohhh my- suffice to say- if you haven't been to Silver Bella before- make plans to come next year!
