Hi Ladies,

Ceramic Diva - I know you love ceramics, but come out and craft with us...grab a bra and some Aleene's Fabric Fusion adhesive and we'll have some fun.

Violette,

It was so awesome to meet you and have you create a masterpiece bra purse. (Violette is an old Aleene's Creative Living TV show fan - she came to the Duncan trade show booth at CHA after reading my blog about the bra purses and reading about the larger than life cutouts)

Check out Violette's website at www.violette.ca - her artwork is fabulous!!!
