I guess it was about two years ago wen I first heard of Silver Bella. Immediately, I was captivated by the beautiful projects, the groups of girls attending, but most of all by the comradery the girls seemed to share. All those like minded girls in one place left me flabbergasted! I wanted to go, but had just missed it! By the time the next year came around, I had a very wee one that I was not leaving anytime soon. I had began to blog and through blogging, friendships blossomed. I registered way back in April, or so. I forget the exact month. I am still on cloud nine and don't think I'll be back on the ground anytime soon. I've also been taking a nap most days since I've returned to recuperate from those nights of lost sleep.... So funny, while I was there I didn't even seem tired. I guess it's caught up to me. My expectations were high. Well, my expectations were surpassed! These girls made me me feel like an old friend, even though it was my first time meeting most of them!
Jeanne was a living doll! And, I must admit I had to use her two photos because I was way too overwhelmed by all the beautiful goods on vendor night to snap pictures. Although, I wish I had!
I was so excited to swing by Analise's and pick up some Sugar *Sugar! I left with about eight or nine of her beautiful handmade ornaments and other sweet treats too!! This special lady, Jo Packam Of Where Women Create really, was just an amazing, inspiring, down to earth, awesome woman. She had moved the crown to tears in minutes and connected with this group of girls on a level I don't think too many others could have. Here we are, me, Andrea and Hope (who I've missed and was so happy to hang out with again.) right before heading out the door for a stroll through Old Market! Two stunning beauties... Tiffany and Jessi! I was thrilled to have met these two extra special girls.... Lorraine Rose... truly and rose! And, Amy Powers ... what an inspiration she is over there at Inspire Co. I have more to share, lots! It's just that this post has taken me over four days to get to and way to long to compose and I don't want my family to feel neglected. LOL, so I will leave you with this and be back soon with more Bellas and projects and all around fun! Good bye for now! Or, shall I say "Ciao Bella!"
