Wow ~ Yowza ~ Awesome!! That was my week...a week filled with classes, friends, inspiration, and treasures!!
Shopping trips to the Gem Mall, Doubletree, Windmill Inn, Viscount...just to name a few, were fabulous and successful ventures.
I haven't many pix from the venues, as they've gotten pretty strict about taking photos, but here are a couple of rogue ones I managed to get!
Thank you, Barbara, for sharing your talent and art with us....I journeyed from this:
Wednesday was another enameling class and this time we created earrings from our enameled beads. Mine are getting their finishing touches, so I will share them on a future post.
I see a lot more enameling in my future!
Barb Solem and daughter Erin (aka Vivi Magoo) really know how to put together a fabulous event ~
|Our leaders ~ Barb|

ARITD kicked off on Thursday with a field trip to the Gem Mall ~
Friday was the first day of classes. Sandra and I enjoyed Riki Schumacher's "Le Petite Photo" class....

What an amazing class! Come follow me as I learn how to gild with solder!!
Thank you dearest Diane for your inspiration and wisdom,
and all the amazing artists/instructors who made this retreat a reality!
Well, the Retreat has come to an end and we've scattered to the wind, until the next time...
As for me ~ I'm back in the bee skep to put the finishing touches on the treasures I'm taking to Scottsdale for my Trunk Show on February 24th.
If you live the area and would like to join us, comment or email your info to me and I will send out an e-vite.
Have a warm and happy week, my dear hearts. It's a noteworthy week, you know...
