Birdsong 3 Art Event

I have been a long time stalker of Karla Nathan's blog "Karla's Cottage", and a couple of years ago I got to meet her and take one of her classes at Paper Cowgirl.....but I had only dreamed of being able to attend her Art Event "Birdsong"  I was on the waiting list, and had all but given up hope that a spot would open up...and then it did...I was so excited....but I almost couldn't get the days off from work....but eventually it all worked out!

 It was so amazing....everything was so beautiful!
I met so many wonderful ladies, who had come from all over.
this is me with Sherry Williams check out her blog "Pantaloons and Pearls"
Karla kept us well fed....lots of goodies to snack on
And we had some great class projects
This was my finished tag wreath from our class with Lori Oles... I instantly loved her! Check out her blog "Vintage Flair"
and below a closer look at my tags
Beth Leintz taught us a great stitching project and I borrowed this picture from her blog "Gathering Dust"....Me with my finished project....I love it!!! I loved seeing how different everyone's turned out.
Karla had so many of these birdcages in her studio, and in her house...they were all so beautiful and inspirational...I didn't get a picture of the one I made....but I love it!
I didn't get a picture of my necklace from the last class, but I sure learned a lot about jewelry making!
Karla had transformed her garage into a beautiful shopping experience for vendor was a little much great stuff...I wanted it all!
Thanks to Kristi for doing all the driving and knowing the best places to stop and shop along the way was a fabulous! I hope to be able to go again next year!
Thanks for stopping by,
Lisa Phillippi


  1. Hi Lisa,

    It was so nice meeting you! You did a beautiful job on your wreath & wire cloche. How did you keep you wire so straight? Mine looked great until out came the can, then it shrunk to this mini cloche and got wobbly. I guess practice will make perfect on that

    Hugs, Tami

  2. Sounds like you had a fabulously creative time Lisa. I love that wreath. Have a great weekend.
