Bella on Parade

November 25, 2008

Well, I have been ultra busy getting back from Silver Bella. I just wanted to give you a peak at all the beautiful items I made.
Several months before Silver Bella, Sandy sent me a wonderful care package and included this little Mary E notebook.

It was my organizer to make sure that I packed all the lovely goodies for classes, organized my swap items and my blog friend goodies. It was a lifesaver! Thank you Sandy!

Here are a few pictures of the incredible classes:
The Group Workshop - with the Prima Bellas
I just loved this little mini ornament. Love the whole concept of using a stamped image to create an embroidered piece.

Charlotte Lyons - Prada Schmada

I enjoyed combining wonderful treasures from my MaMa, my Mom, and Karla. Each time I am reminded of all those special ladies.

Pam Garrison - Home for the Holidays
I just loved using some vintage wallpaper in this class. I know it doesn't look much like a holiday decoration, but I wanted to be able to use it year around. I found the blue tin on a trip with my buddy, Leah, and then I combined some vintage millinery that I purchased from Karla at vendor night! Just love how it turned out!

Rebecca Sower - Prayer Collage

After many years of admiring Rebecca Sower, I finally was privilege to attend her Prayer Collage Class. I was almost in tears several times, as reality sunk in that I was actually in her presence. What a beautiful and talented woman. So this peace will be treasure for a very long time.

Sally Jean - Snow Globe

What an amazing class this was!!! To actually have this vintage cut bottle and learn from techniques from the leader in soldering was awesome. I wish the picture was better, because it just doesn't do it justice.

Teresa McFayden - Christmas Pageant

What a great time I had in this class. Learning new techniques and getting to meet Teresa was one of my highlights. I am still putting on the finishing touches so will show you this neat project later this week.

Wow! All your projects turned out so lovely! Just love what you did with that blue tin...almost enough to "forgive" the tobacco advertising;)

I wish my projects were all done. I still have to make my Prada Schmada. I bet you are carrying yours...so not fair. Next, I am working on our charms, so they make it on this years tree. wink,wink---Kara
