Steampunk Soirée 2014

Happy Saturday!

It was a fantastic weekend!  Three wonderful classes. Lots of crop time. A costume party. Making new friends, seeing old friends, and meeting in person online friends. This community of crafters are so talented, creative, funny, generous, and fun to hang out with.  Miss you guys already!

So busy having fun I didn't get a lot of pictures but I'll share some here. 

Made good progress on the three projects and will share them in a separate post when complete. Learned some new techniques and gained some inspiration for future variations. Kathryn, Kathy, and Jim rock!

Friday night was a costume gala complete with a red carpet runway fashion show.  Got the opportunity to show off my model moves, he, he, he. It was a fun and scary experience. I found myself at the head of the line as all the other contestants lined up behind me.  Realizing that I wasn't about to get out of going first I just pushed aside my fear and went for it. Everyone did a great job showing off their fantastic costumes. 

Saturday night they announced the winners of the fascinator and costume contests and I won third place in the costume contest!  How fun is that!

Enjoy the pics and I will post some more when I get home.

Thursday night registration and welcome. 

Our crop space. We each got a 3 x 6 space to spread out on.

Friday night gala and costume contest.  I ended up tying for third place in the contest!  It was a popular vote so thanks everyone. So glad you all liked my costume and stroll down the catwalk!

I actually started this post the Monday after the Soirée but had so much fun visiting my sister in North Carolina I didn't have time to finish it.  More on that part of my trip in another post. 

I'm waiting at San Francisco airport to catch the last leg of my trip. Got delayed yesterday in DC. 

More later on the projects and fun in North Carolina. 

Happy Creating. 

Hugs, Sharon
