SHE CREATED A MONSTER!

Every once in awhile, I learn something new that really sets me in motion.  I was sitting during last night's hellacious rainstorm, thinking, "It's ALIVE", as I looked at the results from a class I took two weeks ago. Mind you, I had a a sweet out of town visitor, for 10 days, in between the class and this (meaning this has happened in less than a week's time)...yes, it IS alive!
These will be used as gifts, all...what started as a pearl hand-knotting class producing a single strand of  black Swarovski Pearls, has now produced six (6) single strands of Swarovski Pearls.  You know a teacher is pretty great by the amount of interest she can generate in her pupils, to want to carry on once they have left a class.  I knew, halfway into class, this was destined to become a favorite past time.
Thanks to Diane Schreiner - it's always a plus to find a teacher so impassioned about what she does that it rubs off on her students, almost immediately.  If you're a local, Diane will be teaching one more class this month (a little different from just pearls - CLICK HERE), before taking a hiatus.  Glad I got in when I did - I can't say enough great things about this wonderful woman - she created a monster (in a good way)!  Thank you, Diane...
May your weekend be happy and your cup runneth over!  XOXO

HAPPY BIRTHDAY YOU MONSTER!!!
I love the black ones, if you have to wear pearls make them black and show your dark side! Just sayin'
Glad you found something to keep you busy!
