A Great Weekend

Ever wonder why all the fun things happen at the same time?  Weeks go by where there isn’t much out of the ordinary and then all of a sudden those events you’ve been waiting for have arrived!
I’ve been looking forward to attending a Lisa Kaus workshop with my friend Pam for several weeks.
It turned out that our friend Sheila had also signed up for this workshop, so that made it all the more fun!
We all had a great time and learned several different techniques.
Lots of room in Lisa’s studio, so we made a BIG mess.
The class was called Gridlocked. It was fun to make the “grid”.IMG_1402
Even more fun deciding what would go in each of the grids…
A fun way to use some of my favorite bits and pieces.
I was planning to go for just one day, but it just so happened that Pam wasn’t able to go on Saturday for the “Color Your World” workshop. 
I was thrilled to take her place, and even more thrilled when my sweet friend Billie showed up that morning, she was also taking the class. 
This was my completed project.
Until I decide where to hang them, I like them here on the living room wall to enjoy.
On the way home we stopped at Tarte, for their Holiday Soiree.  Everything was incredibly beautiful, and now, I’m inspired and motivated to decorate for Christmas. 
It was fun seeing everyone there but the most special treat, was the amazing video that Robin made.  Take a minute and enjoy the “trailer” here
The full video was a beautiful glimpse of Robin’s photography of Tarte and “her family”.
I will be selling my jewelry at Tarte, the store
will be open Thursday through Sunday through Christmas.
