It’s Christi Friesen Week!

I spent the past weekend with a terrific group of ladies who spent two full days taking classes with Christi Friesen. Christi is just as wonderful  as every email & phone call I ever shared with her. More wonderful in fact … I love her to pieces.  In honor of her and all she does for the Polymer Clay community … it’s Christi Friesen week!

Tomorrow, for WIP Wednesday, I’ll share pictures of the journey & the weekend activities. On Thursday we’ll talk about B’Sue Boutiques and her awesome shop for findings and metals. And join me on Friday for some terrific giveaways, you won’t want to miss it!
