First day of creating at Mary Englebriet

Our first class bright and early this morning was our aqua bracelet class by Kaari Meng!  I have never made any jewelry before, and to make my first piece and be taught by Kaari was so exciting!!!!  This picture is awful of the bracelet (sorry I need to learn to use the camera)  This is our new friend Priscilla from CA and she made a rosey pink one and it was sooooo beautiful.  I think I am definitely hooked on making jewelry now.  Good thing because I need another obsession!!!

The second class I took with my new friend Miacha was Claudin Hellmuth's sitting pretty dolls and I didn't get a picture of the finished product yet.  I loved this class and learned some amazing new techniques!!!  She was a lot of fun!

  6. Shelly looks like you have spent another magical weekend at the Mary E. weekend!!! LUCKY YOU! I am trying to get myself to Kim Caldwells event in July. Are you interested in going to that? Everyone raves about her events being over the top. I am looking for a roommate. What do ya think about going out?

    Oh I wanted some of that honey & didn't think about shipping it(I just didn't want to add the weight to my suitcase or risk a spill). Let me know what you think of it. Hubby is on a new kick of Raw Honey & Cinnamon for weight loss. Seems like it may be helping. Thanks for the sweet comments on my photos of the shop. You are welcome to borrow any you would like.
