Catching up

I haven't been in blogging land for awhile due to some mass confusion issues with family...HA! I know you can all relate in someway to that...anyway just wanted to drop in and post a few pics of what I have been up to. In September I attending one of Kim Caldwell's FAB events....I even sold some of my totes at the Vendors night Soiree (see pics) Kim's events are always over the top, my first class was with the famous Lisa Kettell, she had us make the cutest little ballerina to go in a frame, I wasn't sure about this one at first but as I put her together I fell in love, isn't she cute? I still have not finished the frame with going to Silver Bella and getting ready for the Holidays...it will get done in time. I loved Julie Haymakers class also we put together a foam board frame (what a great idea) and covered it with vintage papers and made a little flower pot with felt and old buttons and such..this was another fun project. Last but not least we made the beautiful cuffs , this class was taught by Ruth Rae, I love her free style, she just seems to throw things together with such flair (of course she does not literally throw things together) I have been wanting to make one of these for a long time now. I always come away from Kim's events so happy with all of my projects and with the teachers and the new skills that they teach me. It really keeps my mind in creative mode as I want to try to come up with new ideas and creations. Of course you must look at the beautiful decorations that Kim puts up at all of her events.....She is already planning for one in July with Mermaids...OMG I can't wait to see what she comes up with for this one!
