A summary.....

As I am sure you all know by now.... I had an AWESOME time at the Summit of Awesome hosted by Hello Craft.  On Saturday night there was a chance for some of the presenters to sell some of their homemade goodies and of course you know I couldn't just window shop.

I love this little goodie from a bardis.  At first I thought this was a regular old button that you pin on yourself, OH but no, this is a much cleaver little accessory that every one needs in their purse.  Can you believe that it is a cute little mirror?  I was shocked and LOVED it so put it in my bag (after paying of course).

I am ashamed to say I didn't take a note of the booth I got this cute little WPI tool.  This is going to be way handy when I am knitting.   This tool was hand crafted by artist in California.  I can't wait to put it to use.

The last day, Sunday, everyone had a chance to participate in a white elephant game.  Everyone who wanted to, brought something handmade to play with.  There were SO many great handmade goodies that I totally would have loved bringing home but I have to say I love this!  It is a small wallet, perfect for going out and putting in a little wristlet.  You will see me sporting it out on the town this weekend.

Here you see two simple books I created using scrapbook paper, drawing paper and a little bit of DMC embroidery floss.  I all ready have plans to create these books with my students and possibly give these for gifts... if I can get myself to part with them, hehe.

This was something else I created during a workshop.  I learned an easy way of silk screening from a bardis, which I hope to share with all of you with pictures soon.  This is a handkerchief that I myself silkscreened with a design that was pre-made.  I have always wanted to learn but always thought it would be super expensive and too much equipment to store.  Now I know I was totally wrong.  Plus is was super easy! I can't wait to design my own.  

That is my Summit of Awesome round up.  I still plan on sharing with you some of the great info I learned from the learning sessions so be patient with me I promise to set some time aside and get it all organized and typed.  

Also the gals at Hello Craft said that they were going to post some of the info to all of the information sessions so check their site out they are full of great info and inspiration.

Take care mucho,
