Goddess Within Workshop @ Craft & Hobby Show

Saturday, January 23, 2010 was the Goddess Within Workshop at the Craft & Hobby Convention in Anaheim. We had a very intimate and creative group. The first is from a young lady (under 18) from the Los Angeles area.

This photo is a little out of focus, but Heather from Australia (who was just there with her friend) did an amazing job decoupaging her female form. She also won the gift basket of fabulous crafting goodies. Never doubt your potential to create!

Fellow friend from Australia created this lovely goddess with rich burgundy lace and other found objects.

Cheryl from Tennessee impressed her friends with her Goddess. I love how she pleated the ribbon around the form.

Below is my demo pieces which I finished and gave to our room monitor for the event.
As the class setting was intimate and not very many people to instruct, Marie (my assistant for the workshop) was able to create her own Goddess.

The event and exhibits were filled with all sorts of celebrities. I saw Kathy Ireland and Vanna White, but was unable to grab a photo with them. Here are a few celebrities Marie and I were able to pose with during the convention.

You would recognize Wyland's sealife - whales beeching, dolphins kissing.
Had a great time at the Craft & Hobby Convention. Can't wait to do it again next year!
