New Obsession :)

Saturday was a very fun day!  I participated in Barbara Lewis' "Painting with Fire" workshop hosted by  Cindy Wimmer and Jeanette Blix .  Wow, what a day!  Barbara was a great teacher...very generous.  Her hubby, Jim was right by her side, helping with everything...what a team:) Cindy and Jeanette were the best hosts...not only did they plan and coordinate the whole event, but there was a yummy coffee cake, cute little bags of Hershey's kisses at each station, and a great lunch spread.  Jeanette brought a bunch of goodies from her shop fundametals.net ...I snagged some cool copper blanks and some more copper washers.  I also got a couple colors of enamel and some other beads from Barbara to give this a shot at home...just have to go get a bigger torch :)

It was very cool to meet several artists whose blogs I read...not only Cindy and Jeanette, but there was Lori  from Pretty Things, Sue from SueBeads, and a bunch of other really nice folks!  I think everyone else fell in love with enameling as much as I did.

I will update with photos of my beads that I made as soon as I can...in the meantime, go look at Cindy's blog post and you will even see a photo of yours truly...a little disheveled and open-mouthed as I am concentrating on that bead!

  1. Hey Melissa...it was SO great to meet you in person. We need to get together again because we don't live too far from one another. Yes, the class was a blast! And I thought that was a great action shot of you.... I can't wait to do a Round II! :-)


I love reading your comments!!!
