Queens of Art Weekend cont.

We began our second day of "Queens of Art" with a delicious breakfast (prepared by our fabulous hostess Karen Hillman) and a champagne toast! Our first workshop of the day was "On the Wings of Love" crown taught by lovely and talented Judy Stafford. She altered and embellished cigar boxes to hold our supplies for the project. Aren't they adorable?
The crowns were constructed with chicken wire and then embellished with vintage lace, ribbons, beads and bling. Here is my finished crown..
All the crowns looked amazing displayed on Karen's kitchen table...
Speaking of amazing and kitchen tables, her gorgeous kitchen table was made by artist Sharon Hershkowitz. Sharon uses vintage china to cover vintage furniture and accessories with mosaics. Her work is so beautiful! We were fortunate enough to have her share some of her tricks of the trade in our next workshop of the day when she helped us create a heart wall pocket.

After spending the morning creating, we enjoyed some yummy cake pops, cupcakes and chocolate dipped strawberries...yes, we were VERY spoiled!
Saturday night we all went out to Cappricio's Italian restaurant. We had a blast and the food was SO delicious!

sweethearts Heather and Cassandra, how adorable are these two?
Me and the FABULOUS hostess! I love this lady dearly!
