Here is Deryn and more studio in the background. She is a jewelry designer and photographer. And my request was to make a charm. Now I didn't have any particular type of charm in mind. I just wanted to make a charm. When I saw the bee charm that Sally made at an early summer session of Camp T, I knew that was what I hoped to make.
Of course "the wingkeeper" would want to make something with wings. This is my bumble bee charm that Deryn taught me how to make. I don't have jewelry making supplies and I don't have time to paint and make jewelry too for now. That means I probably want make jewelry until the next Camp Turlington. But I really enjoyed making it and Deryn is an excellent teacher.
Side note: I did indeed look for the words 'friend' and 'sore' for my bee wings. Never did I notice that it said 'Friday friend'. I have just now realized that Sally and Deryn are my new Friday friends as I see myself jumping in the car on Friday afternoons and heading to the piney woods to meet up for a ART weekend.
One more thing to mention. If you have heard the myth that Sally doesn't stop to eat and there is nothing to eat at Camp Turlington.....don't believe it. For one thing, within reach (the fourth spot at the table) was huge bowl of grapes both red and green, huge can of mixed nuts, huge bags of chocolates and more. I'm just not accustomed to having those snacks right there and I have no will power to resist. So I didn't. You can do that at Camp. Right?
But then, there is Mr. Camp Director. Who checks in between golf games as well as calling from the club house just to make sure Sally knows it is meal time. So, then we had huge wonderful meals. Maybe she didn't cook it but nevertheless it was there. So, thank you Jerry, I had such a wonderful time at your camp.
And thank you again Sally and Deryn for taking the leap and inviting a blogger stranger into your home. You made me feel so comfortable and at-home that I didn't even have to show you my chain saw art.
