Hope your feeling wonderfully well again my dear friend. YOUR bottlecap art work is so creative, you're amazing artist. Glad to know your not sick anymore, Christmas is hard to get through when being sick. Usually I'm sick at Christmas but this year was great - I made it through without any problems and I was so thankful. My Christmas was super simple but very nice. Take care of yourself my artfriend, your so important to me and others.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Hello Christina,

I love the bottle cap art! You are right..that's going be like having "one potato chip"...NO WAY..Make a whole bag of them! hehehe What fun! I hope you have a big turnout.

That looks like SO much FUN!! I would love to join in those festivities. Great project idea!!

Sarah said...

These are gorgeous and so creative! I have tons of these sitting in a jar, keeping them, but not really sure what to do with them (my husband loves his beer). :)

I wish I could make it to your workshop on Monday, its actually somewhat on my way to the trip I am making to KCI on Monday, but I have to have my son back in Lee's Summit for wrestling practice that evening. Perhaps another time!?!?!

Hi Christina,
Your bottlecap charms are really fun. I love the bright colors. I've got to try and get to one of the First Monday events. I'm back to work on the 4th (after over 2 weeks off) so I know I'm going to be swamped....there's always February :-)

How cool!
I wish I lived closer to you. I think these are super cool... and it turns out, I have a few bottle caps. My Iowa Hawkeyes play in the Orange Bowl tomorrow night... pretty sure I'll have even more caps. LOL
