Crafty Goodness

When I first got Tiffany’s email inviting me to attend a Terri Brush workshop at her home, I knew right away that I wanted to go.  I called Isabel and our conversation went something like this:

Me: Hey, did you see Tiffany’s email?

Isabel: Yeah, are you going?

Me: Yeah! I so want to go.  I think I may have to steal money out of our joint account to pay for it. But I really want to go.

Isabel: It’s my birthday that weekend, so I’m going too.

Isabel: What’s the project?

Me: Who cares?

Me: OMG, it’s going to be so fun.  I’m so excited.  I haven’t done anything like this in ages.

(Okay, maybe it didn’t go exactly like that, I have a really bad memory, but you get the gist.)

Little did I know just how much fun it would be.  On my last post I talked a bit about our hilarious Friday night. Today I will share with you some pictures I took on Saturday of the people and projects we made.

DSCF0759 The most gorgeous supplies packet ever!  My dear friend Joy made the folders.  Wish I got a picture of the inside.  Truly lovely!


You should have seen all the cameras that were whipped out to take pictures of this lovely set up.


Kimberly is amazed at all the gorgeousness.

DSCF0763 Linda and Amy hard at work.


Tiffany was so generous sharing goodies from her bling supply.  I wanted to take this whole box home. I think I touched everything in there.


Kimberly concentrating. I bet she looked just like this doing her kindergarten art projects.


Maija was my next door crafting neighbor. Look what she came up with.  So clever!


Speaking of Maija, here she is modeling her adorable Magnolia Pearl dress.  She came all the way from Phoenix, AZ and I’m so glad she did.  Love her!


Isabel’s egg in progress.  I loved the papers she used.


Tiffany’s egg in progress. Her color palette was so her.  I think you can see the completed project on her blog.


And finally, my completed egg.  I got the ruffled crepe paper from Tiffany and everything else from my stash.  I’ve had that girl scrap for a long time just waiting for the perfect project.  I still need to make my glass box to house this cutie in.  What a fun project.  I wish I had gotten pictures of everyone’s completed project, but you can probably see them on their blogs. Links can be found at the end of my last post.

Not to change the subject, but…


No trip to Tiffany’s would be complete without a little visit with the adorable “Churro.”


And the newest member of Tiffany’s family, “Cookie!”


I just loved Cookie’s little feet. So cute!


This photo was actually taken before going to “the beak” Friday night.  Don’t Tiffany and Jeanne look adorable? Tiffany’s dress was an “altered garment project". She took a simple slip and turned it into a gorgeous dress.  That is one talented girl! However, I don’t think that curtain is flame retardant.

As always, thanks so much for visiting.  I hope you enjoyed my day of crafting fun! It didn’t really matter what we made, just the friendship, laughter and the bonds we created were what really made the weekend so memorable.
