Feeling a bit like Cinderalla this morning. This weekend is the 3rd annual Silver Bella paper arts retreat. Today is the Bella luncheon with guest speaker Mary Engelbreit (a longtime favorite of mine) and last night was the Bella Prom. Really wishing that I had gone. The vendor faire last night (part of the Bella prom) would have been worth the drive alone. Andrea from One Hundred Wishes and Deb from Curious Sofa in Kansas City were going to be first time vendors along with goodies from Pam Garrison, Heather Bullard and the queen Bella herself, Teresa McFayden. Oh, well. Maybe next year. Still, would've loved to have the chance to take a class with Sally Jean, Jenni Bowlin and Rebecca Sower again. I learned so much last year, especially from Rebecca.

So today I'm going to have my own little mini Silver Bella. With Starbucks in hand and Christmas music playing, I'm going to dive into my creative to do list. My list includes a project designed by the Queen Bella and an advent calendar by Becky Novacek, another Omaha native. Hopefully, by Sunday evening I'll have lots to show you. Until then, have a lovely weekend!

Sorry you couldn't go but you were a little busy with your quilts. Maybe next year will be a better opportunity.
