Vacation Time!


Hello All
It is time for me to leave for Art and Soul in the morning!
Yay! I am so excited : )
I have never been to an art retreat before, and I have been waiting since last summer for it. So you can imagine how thrilled I am. Even better than that is that Jan, a long time blogging friend, has flown to my house to go along with me! We have never met before, so we are having a wonderful time getting to know each other in person. Tomorrow we meet up with another blogging friend who is also attending Art and Soul. How fun it that!!! 

This will be the first time I am going to be away from my blog.
I will even miss Tea Cup Tuesday for the first time in over 100 posts!
 I will return in time to announce the winner of my Milestones Giveaway on my Birthday March 12th! I will be announcing 3 winners! If you haven't already signed up for it you can go HERE to do so.
Good luck to every one!


I made myself a necklace and earrings to accessorize an outfit I am bringing along.
I used some lovely natural stones and some crystals to create this set.
I do seem to be in a jewelry making mood!
Although the jacket in the first image was a white one I bought at Marsall's for 20 bucks, inspired by a very similar one I saw at Nieman Marcus for much more. I did really enjoy the dyeing process, but I now know how complicated color can be! One moment it looked the right color, then the next going horridly wrong, and me tossing in a little extra this and that! It's a miracle it came out the right color Lol!



Thank you so much for stopping by!
 Have a creative weekend!
Hugs,
Terri
