Ciao, Bella!

Silver Bella was simply amazing.  I met many of the wonderfully talented people I've been blog-stalking for the past few months (or years, in some cases), and learned so many things that will give me more confidence in what I create.  It was interesting to observe each artist's take on the projects.  Everyone put their own unique spin on their work, and all were so willing and happy to share ideas and techniques. 

There's a huge box to unpack and a few pieces that still need finishing touches.  I'll be posting swaps and projects over the next few weeks, but here's one to get things started.  
Sheila Rumney's Trading Trims Vintage Trim Swap
was packaged in an egg carton - so cute!

A big thank you to everyone who participated in this swap.  It was so enjoyable to find the trims I shared, and to get so many new ones back in return!


  1. Terri ~ so excited to have spent time with you at SB! I look forward to keeping in touch! I loved the egg carton cute!

  2. Terri - it was such a pleasure to finally meet you. Thank you so much for the sweet little gift, you are so thoughtful!
    Silver Bella was just the best, wasn't it!?!
    I just want to dive in and complete my projects but I have so much to do this week that it may have to wait. :(

  3. aha, the big, wide daisy embroidered white trim was one of my contributions!

  4. Hi Terri,
    Wasn't Silver Bella the loviest experience ever?! I can't quite get over just how amazing it was! It was a pleasure to meet you and I hope to see you at SB next year. Thank you for for stopping by my blog for and your kind words!
