Silver Bella 2009, Part Deux

Thursday night at Silver Bella is welcome night. 200+ Bellas congregate in a large banquet room, we see old friends from years past,

Jana's mum

new friends in which we’ve established cyberships (yeah, I said it) and we meet new people as well.

We do a group project, which is probably the hardest teaching job there. A little Bella math: happy hour + 200 giddy adults + chocolate + sleep deprivation + swag bags = a tough crowd to wrangle. I learned how to “rope” in third grade, I wonder if I’ve still got it…
Luckily, that wasn’t my job, it was Stephenie’s from Fiskars and she did great! Thanks for the ornaments and the extra goodies!

Friday, we all take classes. Robin and I took 2 classes, we did Rebecca’s class together, this is what I made:

Cigar box class

I did not like messing with that wire, so, it looks icky, but, whatever, it’s complete!

Later in the afternoon, we set up our 2 Birds in a Pod booth.

Here we are on Vendor Night, we started with an apron…

Robin's back

Check out how ridiculous Robin looks. Her apron is from the 1950s, dress from the 1960s, you cannot see them, but, her shoes are from the 80s! I dislike her right now, no, wait, she’s carrying a bag that I made.

Well, my apron is from November, my skirt that you cannot see is from 2008, shoes-2006 and blouse-August 2009.

Robin’s knits rocked the house! She brought home almost none, she had to make some in the car on the way home, actually!

More Silver Bella to come!

  3. I LOVE your wire and that collage! And guess what? That darling blue blouse you’re wearing with that darling apron of yours…I own the same blouse! Hanging in my closet and I have yet to wear it! I’m sure it looks sooooooo much cuter on YOU! You are too sweet for words….
