Replication and Bead & Button Finale

As I predicted, it has been challenging to blog over the past week or so.. My time is so limited right now…
I was replicating a necklace the other night at baseball… For me, it is harder to replicate than create originals…


Creating at the ball park…

Love the weathered and worn wooden bench at the ballpark, it sure is a great backdrop although not so comfy to sit on for 3 1/2 hours.


Friday Night at Bead & Button: Closing down the restaurant…
L to R, Suzann Sladcik Wilson, Ann Sherwood, Eva Sherman, Lori Anderson, Hilary Frye, and myself.

Our dinner reservation was for 8:30pm and suddenly we realized it was 11:30 pm and there was no one else in the restaurant!!! We had so much fun visiting and getting to know each other. We had never met in person, only online, and ever one of us is in a different and unique place in our career. It was so interesting…

Prior to dinner, Hilary and I had a Vintaj class on patinas and Utee melting products.


The class had some great techniques…

I just happened to have an old key with me and I couldn’t resist the urge to play with the effects.

I guess that wraps up my Bead & Button experience… Saving the date for next year. It was such an amazing experience.
πŸ™‚ Hope you can join us!

Have an incredible Thursday! πŸ™‚ Kris
