Had a perfectly wonderful day in New York last week. I was invited (as a former guest) to be in the studio audience to help Martha Stewart celebrate her 500th show. I had soooo much fun seeing Martha & my buddies, and taking in the gorgeous set (from the other side of the camera, that is...)! And what a gorgeous set it is. Really stunning...This six foot tall ice sculpture was quite amazing! The sculptors were smoothing and adjusting it right up to show time and the studio lights transformed it into a rainbow of color.

I would be remiss if I didn't mention three wonderful people who made Saturday's workshop such a success.

Oh, the fun we had on Saturday. Wish you all could have been there. We crafted beautiful wire trees in glittered urns and dusted some birdies and eggs with more of the stuff...and of course, ate chocolate bunnies & malted milk easter eggs. ( One of my workshops isn't complete without chocolate, ya know! )First we glittered our cast iron urns with vintage silver glass glitter and let them dry. Next, we twisted the wire strands into a trunk shape with branches and roots. Then we bent the roots so they would fit down into the urn. Yay! We got it to stand up in the urn all by itself!!! (nobody sneeze, OK?)
Next it was time to mix & pour plaster...Now the fun began...time to start shaping the branches. This is where each artist's personality started to emerge. We twisted, twirled and coaxed those little wires into the most beautiful shapes.Everyone's tree came out to be so different, yet absolutely wonderful...I think everyone was amazed to see a thing of such beauty emerge from a pile of copper electrical wire!
It was very tough to say good-bye to this group...such amazing people...and we had such a blast!
Thanks to Marcia @ Tinsel Trading Company, and to our workshop organizer, Terri, for yet again allowing me to teach my craft and share my love of all things glittered!

Yup, a dear little glitter bird flew in from Florida, just in time for Spring, and landed on this box! She has three tiny blue glittered eggs in her nest and a banner proclaiming "happy easter". Makes me want to jump for joy---so darned cute! Would love to have kept her for myself, but she already flew away with a customer to be an Easter gift for someone special...

BTW, there is still a space or two for my workshop this Saturday in NYC @ Tinsel Trading Company, if you'd like to learn how to make one yourself. Give them a buzz and we'll squeeze ya in.
