Class with Mark

First let me say that even though I had to get up by 6 in the morning (yeah I know it's not that early, I just don't do mornings) it was well worth it. To meet Mark Lipinksi in all his true colors just made my year. Mark has such a wonderful way of making everybody feel like somebody. So saturday morning I'm sitting in the class were we will be making a Katmandu bag using why of course Katmandu fabric. Of course I have nothing to show for the whole time I was there because embellishment takes time and we had more fun learning than actually working. Well there were a few ladies who got somewhere, but these bags will take a while to complete. This first picture is of Mark talking. As you can tell we were all paying attention. This next picture is of course me with Mark and his funny idea of hiding behind our pattern for the bag. I have several pictures of the class but they really are of a boring nature. And yes I have pictures of the embelleshed items, and the bag, but feel those really are not me to share because they belong to Mark. But I will post pictures of my Katmandu bag as it transforms throughout I hope the next few months and not years.

I still am feeling quite star struck, just like my little girl did when she got to see Jackson off of Hanna Montana last weekend. Her jaw dropped and she just starred with stars in her eyes.
