Silver Bella..

I can't believe I am posting on Christmas Eve..but I finally have a moment to sit down and actually POST!!! I hope that you enjoy my pics of Silver Bella as much as I enjoyed this time with my sweet friends..New and Old.

First are pics of the apron I made for the "Queen of the Kitchen " Apron swap that I hosted, this was my first time hosting at Silver Bella and I must say I was a little nervous about doing this as the swap at this event are off the charts. The rules were simple each person was matched up with a partner and then they got to know each other through a little survey that I did online with the group, then you could talk to your partner to get know more about her likes and dislikes...then get creating..make an apron and decorate it, only rule is that it had to have a "Crown" on it somewhere...I made this lovely apron for my partner Shea, she said she liked creams and whites and was a Audrey Hepburn gal only with a little bling this is what I created for her....

Doesn't it look fabulous on my vintage dress form? you will see the most beautiful apron that Shea made for it and best thing is that it is reversible...with crowns on both sides..does she know me or what!!

OK the bad news is ...I was the last swap of the night 11:45 pm..yes that is right 11:45 pm and my camera batteries died before I could get pics of all of the aprons.... and crowns, so amazing!

So I will just share with you some random pics of my trip to Omaha..people always ask me "what's in Omaha?" you will see.
