The Adventure Continues

Just so y'all don't think that hippo in a tutu was the look I was rocking all weekend, here are some slightly better pictures. I'm missing a picture of me with Carolyn Peeler. The lighting was terrible and I'm so sad about it because I really, really adored her. I'm so glad that she was our first class because she taught me so much about technique. I will always be indebted to her. Plus I feel like we bonded when I got all emotional talking to her about what her class meant to me. Well, I call it bonding, she probably calls it frightening. Whatever.

Me and Kim Kwan. I loved her. She's quite spunky which is one of my favorite qualites in a person.

Me and my honorary niece, Molly. She was in I think 3 of our classes and she is so talented, sweet and gorgeous. And she's a recently graduated art major which makes her totally cool in my book.

Me and Cammy with the Queen Bee herself, Teresa McFayden. She was so warm and friendly. I will be forever grateful to her for putting all of this together.

That's me with Mary Engelbreit. Ladies she was amazing, down to earth and frank. She was encouraging and honest and I'm so happy I had the privilege of meeting her.

That's me and Pam Garrison. Is it just me or does she make me look like an amazon? She is the most adorable woman. All that talent and charming and gorgeous to boot. Hate her.

This was my spot at the group class the first night. I hope to start showing you guys my finished projects in the next couple of days. Plus I've been revamping my studio and I'm even more inspired now. I'll be showing you that in a few days too. I have lots to share, the hard part is tearing myself away from the fun to post!

  3. I just spent almost the whole day unpacking my crafts/tools/projects in my craft room. Wow...we came home with alot of stuff...mostly give-aways! I had no idea until I started unpacking. I wish I had had my picture taken with you and Cammy that first night! And you do not look like an Amazon...rather Pam looks like an elf. xoxo, Julia

  5. Okay, you are tooooooo hard on yourself. Commit to only saying good things about yourself this week! You are adorable, and if you don't believe me, take a moment and ask your husband, I'm betting, not even have ever met him, he would agree with me!!! Cammy, I am certain will back me up!! Anyone else?
