The Ladies Danced – ZNE 2009

The Ladies Danced

Okay, that’s the name of this piece but it could also describe my experience at ZNE 2009!

Victorian Tea Party in a Cigar Box

Victorian Tea Party in a Cigar Box

Well if you’re into Vintage, Victorian, Antique or Mixed Media, this was definitely the place to be. I’ve discovered as an Artist trying to stay out of the corporate maze that Networking is a true necessity and a great experience.  At ZNE we met so many unique Artists and visitors.  We were blessed with having the first table at the door (so they saw my goofy smile on the way in and on the way way out! LOL) .  I’ve always been amazed by people that could turn sticks and stones into Beauty and Art.  And they were there. And even better there were many teaching others how to do the same! Kids passed by with huge proud smiles on their faces after having done a Make and Take. Adults whispered of their excitement after finding a doll or toy or game they hadn’t seen since childhood. Memories rushed in!  We even had the pleasure of hearing Jon Troast sing as he performed Live. All in All, it was a great positive energy and a lot of playful spirit!
I loved it and can’t wait until the next one.

My Thank You! :-)

My New Instructional shows you how to make Designer Paper and Hair Accessories at the same time!

Lots of fun and easy and fast!

Making hair sticks is fun and you can make any design you want without the cost of buying them at stores. Barettes are really a lot of fun especially during the spring and summer when our wardrobe is light and fun!

These Barettes were made using blank Stencil forms and other products most scrappers and crafters have sitting right in their work areas!  These also make great gifts for kids and adults alike and you can make them to match any outfit.
