CHARMing Day at Whimzy!

Today was my Charm Necklace workshop at Whimzy! in Old Town Tustin. And from the looks on their faces and the hugs after class, I think the ladies all enjoyed the class.


And although these ladies look confused here, they aren't!  They are just "auditioning" their pieces :) . . .
See the empty chair?  One of the ladies hadn't made it to class yet, but when she arrived (by motorcycle), she had homemade brownies in tow!  I would have to say that's better than bringing an apple for the teacher, wouldn't YOU?  LOL  Oooooh and YES, they were VERY good.  And Sheryl served lemonade and some melt-in-your-mouth cupcakes to us as well.  Yuuummmy 
Here are some of the happy faces I was talking about . . .
A few close ups . . .
I would like to thank Sheryl and Dianne (Whimzy! store owners) for inviting me to teach at their store again.  And a HUGE thank you to the ladies that attended:  Michele, Tami, Judy, (another) Judy, Julie, Lorna and Sheryl.  


PS  Did I mention that two of the ladies came as far away as TEMECULA and MURRIETA?!  


PSS  And btw . . . they DID like those bookmarks that I made for them *smiles*


PSSS Here are a few snapshots I took around the store today.  And here's Sheryl's blog post today - click HERE . . .
Well, like the "Party Girl" above, I think I've partied enough for one day.  Time to kick back and have a glass of pinot noir and catch up on some dvr recorded programs from last week - Top Chef Masters, Army Wives, Brothers & Sisters, and 24!

Whatever you had planned for the weekend, I hope you are enjoying it to the fullest!

Sherry -

It sure looks as if everyone had a grand time. The pieces of art they created are just gorgeous! But they had a great teacher too! Really sweet looking pieces.

Thanks ladies!

Elaine Allen - I don't have a way to contact you. Please e-mail me so I can respond to you. You have left so many sweet comments on several of my blog posts, and I surely don't want you to think I'm too busy to thank you. It's just that I don't have a way to reach you :( xoxo
