We had an over-the-top inspired weekend crafting inside Mary's enchanted studio in Saint Louis. On any day the place itself is so cozy and inviting. But with holiday decorations, it's like stepping into one of her drawings. I was a little swept away by the photo vignettes. And then the work that the students created was just beautiful. Everyone was deliriously happy inside her wonderland. Here's a look at the first day. I taught my holiday sweater class, Kathy shared her needle-felted scarves and Nancy led a Christmas journal class. Barbara set up a souvenir photo booth and Mary signed The Nutcracker and other pieces for each attendee. Busy, busy elves indeed!

Little Annabel stopped by to collect her mom at day's end and modeled her new sweater for us. We all went a little ga-ga over her cuteness. Understandably so. She also had my favorite quote of the weekend. When asked if she knew who Mary was, she said Oh, yes! That's Mary Email-bright!
