Workshop Review

Thursday, May 23, 2013

This past weekend I hosted the Garden Party Bead Workshop in my home.  I had 10 amazing students join me for a day of beadmaking.  The top left photo shows the kits for the day - clay and tools wrapped up like presents.  It was a fun mix of old friends and new that gathered for the day.  The two photos on the bottom left and center show my student's work.  They were fearless and jumped right in, soon experimenting and trying new things with the basic techniques I taught them.  On the bottom right is a mix of polymer clay with porcelain bisque blanks that my friend Marla brought along.

If you have beady friends, you know what a treasure they are and how much fun it is when we get together.  My friend Marie of More Skye Jewels traveled all the way from Canada to visit with me for several days.  Erin from Tesori Trovati was able to surprise Marie and stay with us for the weekend.  We are all kindred spirits and even though there are many miles between us, our hearts are always on the same page!  I'm so blessed to have such sweet friends with precious hearts, creative minds and generous spirits. 

Saturday night we stayed up into the wee hours of the night making beads.  Nothing beats a beady slumber party!  Here are are the new beads I made this weekend - Nest & Birch Trees.

We gathered together on Sunday for brunch and a bead swap!  Oh look - an art bead trifecta with Humblebeads, More Skye Jewels and Simple Truths by Tesori Trovati!

Our visit was much too short, but we all left with sweet memories and the promise of another visit soon!

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy,

they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.

-Marcel Proust


Smiles to last a lifetime

There is so much I should say about this weekend, but I am still processing it all! I am so happy that I was able to drop everything at the last minute to join you all. Your home is such a special place and it was delightful to spend time with you and your beautiful and uber artistic girls, your sweet husband and even your cat, who stuck to me like glue even though I am allergic (I think he knew that!). Best of all was meeting long time beady buddies from online communities like Marla and Marie and making new friends! Your class was super inspiring to me and I have already gone out last night and bought myself a pasta machine. I will make more for sure! Best of all is having a friend who will open not only her home but her heart and share all that she is with so many. Thank you from the bottom of mine. Enjoy the day. Erin
