Warm Fuzzies Blog Hop
Hilary Frye of FryeStyle sponsored this event which was held on March 9, 2011.  You'll find Hilary's blog here:  http://fryestyle.blogspot.com/

Hilary says about the hop:
"I decided that we needed something creative to get us over the winter chill. And, bring 17 friends together while learning and having fun.

Our inspiration was what made us feel, "warm and fuzzy". The mode was mixed-media...
... and extra points if you incorporated a fiber into the design for "warmth and fuzzies sake".

Brenda Sue Lansdowne of B'sue Boutiques partnered with me. I picked the kit and she handled the marketing and sales of it from her online store and Facebook page.

(Most of the entrants are new to the blog world. This event was a great introduction to the concept of blogging and blog hops. We discovered that working in mixed-media can be a challenge; but, well worth the effort.)

Today, I have the pleasure of sharing my work and also the work of fellow artists."

I was thrilled to be a part of Hilary's very first hop!  I'm sure it won't be her last.   How happy I was to finally get all the pix into an album that we could archive at B'sue Boutiques!  http://www.bsueboutiques.com

Such inspiration! Amazing to think each person began with the same pieces.  As someone new to working with metal, I look forward to experimenting with B'sue's amazing selection of components and patinas, coatings and dyes! Thanks to everyone for sharing your work.
