"To know someone here or there with whom you can feel there is understanding in spite of distances or thoughts expressed, That can make life a garden."~ Goethe
Today I went out on a business trip to a sweet shop called Tangerine out in Dublin. I went over to talk to Gina about some different classes I could teach and hopefully schedule a couple. It was a lovely day and the ride over on Bart would have been great, had I not been in the train car filled with 12 yr olds and 4 chaperones. All VERY loud but the culprits were the adults believe it or not.
Anyway, it was a pleasant trip over, and when I got to the store-oh my!! It's so CUTE!!!!! There was SOOOOO much stuff to look at, so while Gina looked thru the stuff I brought, I looked thru hers. Dresden, collage packs, vintage bits and bobs, CANDY!, vintage velvet flowers, tiny polymerclay babies, soaps, jewelry, aprons, vintage books, magazine, glass glitter-I could go on and ON! If you live in the Bay Area, you NEED to go over there!
Gina and I spent the entire afternoon talking about all kinds of things. I think we could have spent the entire day talking and I had an absolute blast with her. She'll also be carrying some Saints & Sinners Jewelry along with the other amazing jewelry she has in the shop!
And if that weren't enough fun for the day, I have three classes on the schedule!! woo hoo! I am super excited to be teaching there and will post full details soon. For now here are the brief class rundowns. The June class - Jewelry Alchemy: creating new jewelry from your bits and bobs, July Class- The Perfumed Locket: A bit of aromatherapy combined with a necklace or bracelet creation and for August- Jewelry Cold Connections. Gina will have the descriptions up soon, so be sure to check her website for details.
