First hand of business is to show you this lovely package I received weeks ago from Betty at Sammy Girl She was so generous with her give away. I was so excited to have won and have this package waiting for me when I got back from my CO trip.
It was all wrapped so cute...
The colors are so magnificent this time of year...
So this is the workshop this week, Junk Jewelry... what a bunch of fun girls! We had so much fun making bracelets and they really were wonderful as you can see.
Aren't they just fabulous!
I am catching up here since my computer had been acting up - So this is the workshop 2 weeks ago. It is the Fabric Collage workshop that I gave in honor of KC Willis. I had just gotten back from her fabulous studio retreat and I gave some insight on how KC does fabric collage. It was a fun evening. Here are some pictures from that night.
and Susan also has a wonderful blog called Circle of Buttons
Yes, and that is the talented Miss Judy from Tapestries of Nature. We have been friends for many years now and I so enjoy her company.
Thanks so much for stopping by and as always I enjoy hearing from you

This is a restaurant I ate at while in CO called The Fort, it is in Evergreen in the foothills. I drove down to meet an old friend and his wife that I hadn't seen in a few years. To be perfectly honest he was my first boyfriend. :) Him and his wife live in this beautiful place.
And these are the lovely ladies I spent the next 4 days with making art, laughter and friendships. From left to right Diane, Eileen, KC, Stephanie, Jacquie and myself. We met at this wonderful little quaint restaurant to get acquainted the night we all got into Longmont.
Here is the cool studio of KC Willis...the first day was full of sunshine and inspiration. We all had come from different parts of the country from Wis to Mich to Ill.
KC in front of her special little Victorian house she turned into her gallery/studio.
I love her artwork, they are pieces of art that tell a story and are truly inspirational.
Here we all are again
We worked in the studio together during the day from 9 to 4 and then met again for dinner around 7pm.
So, in case you haven't gotten the idea that I had a great time I just want to say that it not only was inspirational but magical. KC is the most giving artist not only of her talents and resources but of her self and her heart. I truly was impressed that this is her ministry to inspire and show the love of Christ in her art and to teach and share with others. Thank you KC. And I encourage anyone that wants to grow and be inspired to sign up for one of her retreats.... or anyone that just wants to laugh and find a little magic.
PS. I have been asked when the give away ends and it will end on Saturday and I will post the winner on Sunday. Sorry I didn't include the information.
