RAKS, the Workshop and a Scrumptious Dinner

Before I show you photos from class today, I would like to share a package I received in the mail from my friend Eileen Bellomo from New York.  More goodies to use with my gifted Vagabond. Thank you again Eileen! . . .
And last week I received a gift (in my Paypal account) from someone that would like to remain anonymous.  They wanted me to pick up a few dies for my Vagabond.  I now have the caged bird and the #5 flower die to make roses. And the chandelier die is "in the mail".  Thank you "anonymous"!

Earlier this afternoon was my Charm Necklace workshop at Stamp Fever.  Thank you Linda Foley for having me teach at the store and a huge thank you to "TJ", Leslie G, Sallie R., Chelle, Patty F. and Karen E. for making it such a fun afternoon playing together!
Patty had so much fun at my workshop back in July at Whimzy, that she asked if she could come take it AGAIN! :) . . .
And here's Leslie again.  This time she is sporting the Alice necklace she saw in my Etsy Shop.  Thank you for your purchase Leslie! . . .
This is a package Chelle brought to class today.  I didn't open it until I got home because I wanted to get a photo of it still in the packaging.  Isn't it pretty?!. . .
This is what was inside . . .
It's a year-long calendar that is displayed easel-style.  You will see it displayed properly on my work desk for WOYWW next week :)  I just LOVE it.  Thanks again Chelle.

After the workshop, Chelle and I went to Rutabegorz in Old Town Tustin to satisfy our hunger pangs.  If you haven't been to this restaurant, there are a few additional locations in Orange County HERE.  The restaurant is based on good eating as an important part of good living.  They have the best salads around!

It's late now (at least for me it is), so I will sign off for now.  See you back here on Monday.

Sherry, I love these necklaces! How did you put the silver and gold around some of the rounded edged shapes? I can tell they are not soldered, but it's so smooth and pretty....have you considered doing a video? I can't come to your classes!!!!!
