It was so cool on Friday when in spite of the snow and the cold, people flocked to our open house at the workshop in White Bear Lake. Lots of glittery ornaments were made ... cookies were munched ... the workshop thoroughly examined. It was a wonderful day!
Tags made by my friend Steph at Sunshine and Ravioli were a big hit. So were Steph's whimsy loaded cupcake cards. My button maker got a workout with everyone wanting holiday initial buttons. One person was giving them to all her female family on Saturday when they went to the Mall of America for Christmas shopping. Oh ... one other fun thing ... I found out who in Wasilla, Alaska reads my blog and that I know her and that she was jealous because her friend got to come to the open house and she couldn't! (Hi, Holly! Waving at you!)
But as great as Friday was, it was even more fun when my grand-neice Bryn came to visit today! My sister Sue brought her so Bryn could make Christmas ornaments as gifts. She finished a half dozen of these retro paper ornaments in a flash. Sue and I couldn't keep up!
Then on to snowflakes for her cousins ... with lots of trips to the bathroom to wash our gluey glittery fingers! Sue pointed out that I need granddaughters of my own. (Listen up Rob and Alex!) If I could have them with as sweet of a personality as Bryn's, I'd love it! She was excited to be at the workshop and thought it might be a nice place for her friends to come for her birthday next Summer. Ya ... I think it would be fun, too! Anytime spent around her would be a good time in my book.
Merry Christmas, Bryn!! (And everyone else, too.)
