Where do you begin about this wonderful weekend. I was with three great teachers Julie Haymaker Thompson, Lisa Kettel, and Ruth Rae. Also can't forget the wonderful hostess Kim Caldwell who put on a great event.
The energy was beyond words this week-end. Met wonderful talented women who not only talented but very kind. The art they created was wonderful and is always exciting to see everyone take it to make it their own personal piece.
Once again I can't say how magical this week end was!!! What great experiences and memories I will be able to carry with me for years to come.
Today we are off to the Long Beach Flea Market to find some wonderful pieces to take home and create with. Will be sharing more about the week end and the great finds we get today through the week.

Everyone who knew my late husband knew that he was a machinist by trade. His tool box has sat for 8 year untouched. Last Sunday I decided it was time to clean it out. I had decided that all these nuts and bolts weren't going to put him back together. They were in there collecting dust. So I put all this stuff that looks like junk to the common person like my self and boxed it up to send it to a new home. The box ended up in hands of love. Yep you guessed to Julie Haymaker Thompson. She was more than trilled to receive it all.
Well now we will have to wait and see what the real out come will be of the "junk" I gave to Julie. Bill created alot of the nuts and screws on his lathe for companies around home like Stryker. Now Julie will take them to their next life and put them into art for people to enjoy. So stay tune for the upcoming creations on both of our blogs.
Well it's time to call it a day. Everyone have a great week and will talk to you soon.
