The gals wasted no time in creating some amazing "crowns". It was fun to watch the transformation from chicken wire to a bejeweled piece of art. Joy's shop was a flurry of activity. Between the crown and valentine making - paper, lace, jewels, etc. - were used in a variety of ways. Like we told them, the sky is the limit! Make what makes you happy ... and they did.
Other bloggers just stopped by to enjoy the merriment, visit and sample a few treats. Isabel and Lisa out-did themselves by making little smokie wraps, a veggie platter, brownies and the best strawberry lemonade. Our blogging guests included: Timi, of A Girl Named Timi and her husband; Joe and Jermonne from Barn House, Cindy of Tarte, Pam of My Grandkids Rock, Julie of Kindred Spirit Soap Co., Christa of Chloe Rose, Sylvi of Little Cottage and her daughter Cecelia. In addition to the bloggers, we were happy to have Betty, Jori, Michelle, and Tony join us. Maybe after seeing all the fun we have, they will begin blogging too!
It was so fun to meet everyone. Many were new acquaintences for me. It was nice to put a face and voice with the blog. I feel really blessed to have met so many really talented, nice people - hard working people that enjoy what they do. Thank you all and hope to talk to you again soon! M. PS Take a peak at Isabel's post for a much better account of the day. She has some great pictures!
