A Magical Time

I am exhausted, happy, and feeling creative all over. I just got home from SilverBella '08.http://www.teresamcfayden.typepad.com/silverbella/ I try to go every year and I am never disappointed with the quality of classes or instructors. It was another Magical Silverbella Event. I am sure I heard bells ringing with each new idea that popped in my brain.


I am not a big swap kind of girl. I just don't sign up very often for any kind of swap. However, Silverbella is different. I signed up for the Royal Soldered Charm Swap. Here is what I created...20 charms with Mona Lisa. They read "The Queen of Art" on the backside of the charm and on the front, they said "Art Makes Me Smile."


I also signed up for the cupcake swap...Here is what I made. I made one for my swap partner, Stephanie and one for dear Wanda for hosting it. It was a ball to make and not to overwhelming since I only made 2.... The base of the cupcake is felt and the top of the cupcake is 1/2 of Styrofoam ball covered with Dimensions Felt Works wool. The ball on top is wooden and painted and glittered. The leaves are felt also.


























I am dedicating this week to my Siverbella Bliss...more photos tomorrow.

Kara,
Your charm turned out so cute. I love it! I am sad I didn't ver have a class with you nor did I catch you in the hallway to say hi. It was a magical event at that! I can't wait until next year! Hopefully I will catch up with you in person next time.

Your cupcake is darling! I love how you created it with felt!

My one regret at Silver Bella is that I didn't get to meet everyone in person...such as you! But thank you for swapping with me (and many others!!)
