  4. good book
  5. Mom  (she should be # 1.)
  6. Cute outfits , what do you think?


Won't you  be surprised! LOL
or maybe this for lunch with  mom and the girls?
Did I mention I am bringing my Mom?
She will bring everything we need , including the kitchen sink!!!
This is gonna be fuuuun! :)
Oh please don't let there be any booger bears on campus!  She is a scardy cat!
Anyway.....................
METALS WEEK with Joanna Goldberg and I am feeling a little out of  my league!!!  0: YIKES!  What is the old saying?  "Fake it till you make it?"  Wish me luck that I don't sit there in a stupor or something.
Here is a picture of Joanna's book  I just purchased and have proceeded to misplace !  Can you believe it?  I am always putting something in a safe place! Hummmm.....have YOU seen it?
 
How clever of me to take a picture of it though, so I could remember what it looked like.:)
I posted pics of these projects I did a few weeks ago, being inspired by Joanna's projects in the "lost book". I was having fun using her techniques and incorporating some Faux Bone into my pieces.
I have another book of hers that  was just recently published and titled "  The Ultimate Jeweler's Guide".  Maybe she will sign it for me?    I can't wait to meet Joanna and some new friends in class and learn some wonderful new things.
 I am hoping my mom will enjoy herself as much as I know I will.  I will let you know how it all goes when I return.   
By the way , is there anyone out in blog land that I know that will also be attending ? If so , I hope you will let me know.
Here's a little show and tell:
This is the example for a class I am teaching at Naturally Jennifer's Beads in San Luis Obispo, California  July 17,2010 .  In this class we will be  making concrete hearts,  molds , painting papers with ICE RESIN http://naturallyjennifer.com/ just click in the upper right hand corner of her site were it says classes.  It is going to be messy and fun , hope to see you there! 
Also... here are a few of my recent projects.

My attempts at some bling.
More birdies...

and for the love of Starbucks!
  A skinny vanilla latte will keep the momma happy.:)

Just one more before I go...
look what's blooming outside my studio door.
 Have a wonderful day everybody. Hope to talk to you soon. 
Hugs, Stephani

Wow! I am envious of the fun you're going to have and what a great time to be with mom! I have a couple of Joanna's books ... they are so great ... and her writing and explanations are so thorough. I think she's going to be a marvelous, patient teacher. Can't wait to hear when you get back.

Stephani, Be sure to introduce yourself when you get to Idyllwild. I will be teaching the workshop on forging neck collars and making slides for the collars. Idyllwild is great and you Joanna is wonderful.
See you there.

Happiness

The sum of happiness is made up of a thousand details. A little kindness done one less fortunate gives the heart a beat of pleasure that no millinery or laces or jewels can possibly inspire.
To overcome prejudice is more satisfying than a ten-course dinner.
To subdue a difficulty and smother a selfish disire is to become strong and splendid.
If life is worth living at all, it is worth living in a state of progress and improvement.
If we moan and groan, filling the air with dissatisfaction and gloom, we can scarcely hope to partake of much contentment.
All you need is a good thump on the back by some cheerful soul who has faith in you, and promise to yourself that you will face your work and your worries cheerfully,-(Selected)
