Me and ME in St. Louis-1

I  finally have time to share a wonderful and artistic workshop I enjoyed courtesy of Mary Englebreit in St. Louis, MO at the first Mary Englebriet's Home Companion Workshop.  130 other creative women joined with me at the lovely Chase Park Plaza in the West End district of the city--
so charming with lovely brick historic homes, antique shops and interesting restaurants.  We signed in on Thursday evening, each with our handmade name tag and mingled with Mary and all the others.
There were prizes for best name tags (Mine, did not win, although I thought it was very sweet with my 3rd grade school picture on it!).
(It is covered with antique gold mesh so this picture does not look as clear as it really is)
We began with a tour of Mary's studio and were greeted by this adorable Mary look-alike.
Her studio was amazing with it's colorful and cheerful art, furniture and tools
There is so much inspiration just in her studio.  Everywhere you look it is an explosion of color and creativity.  No wonder she produces so much in this place.  I loved the whole experience.  Tomorrow I will show some of the amazing classes that were available.

I can't imagine a more worthy and creative person to attend this delightful workshop with the so many other gifted women.
Your name tag is darling... And I am looking forward to see what you created in your classes!~♥

I LOVE Mary Engelbreit!
