(One of the Bella's box of pretties)
A year ago I read beautiful accounts across the blog world talking about Silver Bella and the creative experience they had.
The photos were gorgeous and it sounded like the most incredible party of glittery fun!
I signed up as soon as registration opened more than 10 months ago.
(Gorgeous vintage items from Heather of Speckled Egg)
I came with little idea what this would REALLY all be like.
Keep in mind that I just went to Brave Girl Camp a month ago and had such a deep and real heart changing experience.
I knew that nothing could compare to that.
Women do that.
We change each other's hearts…for the better or worse.
Back to Silver Bella:-)
(Andrea's tray and some of her gorgeous vintage beads)
I enjoyed the classes and learned a few new techniques.
(Hard and AMAZING class by Denise Sharp)
I met some artists that I admire.
(The rosary necklace I created in Kaari's class. Kaari Meng of French General. I am excited to travel with her to the South of France in July)
I had a wonderful vendor night and sold lots.
(I loved catching up with my sweet, sweet friend Beth Quinn)
But if you know me ….you know that I love to connect with people.
(The very talented Kari of Artsy Mama)
(Heidi of Birds of a Feather. Her creations are gorgeous and her apron was soooo pretty. I really want to learn embroidery)
(I love this girl! I met Kana through blogging. She is so funny, sweet and genuine….and she is a knock out:-))
(I adore Lisa. She is so talented…seriously….ran to her booth to buy a few necklaces before the vendor night began. She is also so sweet and real. I wish we lived closer!!)
(There aren't enough words for me to tell you how much I love these girls. Meg…I would be making you hang out with me everyday if we lived near each other. I ADORE you!!!!)
I am not great at small talk for too long so nothing blesses me more than to meet other genuine and creative women.
That is what I took away from Silver Bella…..sweet new friendships.
