Silver Bella 09 067It’s hard to put into words the experience of Silver Bella.  Imagine being surrounded by the most inspiring and creative women, all of whom “get” you.  Boxes spilling over with lace and bauble treasures, eagerly shared.  Incredible teachers.   Roomfuls of positive energy.  Never have 5 days gone by so quickly.

    What a thrill to be right in the class when you made that shadowbox. I remember watching you “squish” that beautiful blue and lace material down into your shadowbox. It is so beautiful!

    Thank you again for giving me a charm. I was so thrilled that someone would be so generous! It was a wonderful start to the week.

    I have you on my list and I will keep in touch on your blog.

    Hugs to you!

    It was a blessing to meet you at SB! I have finally came back to earth and the fact that I can’t create all the time (but I sure do wish I could, it’s just that going to work gets in the way).
