Virginia Beach - Creativity at its Finest!

Wowie! We had such a marvelous time on the bay — good weather, bad weather. It didn't matter because we were too busy laughing and creating. It is so much fun to see our east coast friends each year - and NONE of us grows a bit older! Isn't that amazing??? How you manage to take classes all day and night and STILL have energy for a pajama party is beyond me - but you did it! And I know there were "spin off" parties each evening in various locations...ahem. How fun was that??!!

I cannot begin to thank our wonderful group of instructors for once again providing us with stellar classes and techniques. The work being accomplished was amazing - and you did it! A big thanks to Sally and her crew at The Bead Goes On for our Opening Night Party. Don't miss it next year! And to Ken Oliver for all his demo's on the Spellbinder. FUN! Judy and her gang in our fabulous store! And, of course, our Energizer Bunny - Marie. She keeps us on time, on target and is a jewel.

I'll be posting a recap of Kansas City and Virginia Beach on the blog shortly... after I catch my breath! I will also be sending a newsletter with the dates for 2014 in the next few weeks. As you may or may not know, we are changing things up a bit. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me personally at  

Thank you so very much for being a part of our A&S family!!
