This was so much fun to do. I showed my “students” 😉 how to make paper silkstone miniature dolls. And I was so proud because everybody finished and went home with a complete set of miniature dolls.

That evening we had the Silence Auction. This was the first time I saw all 800 conventioneers together in one room.
