Nina Bagley Workshop Photos

Okay, on to what you have all been waiting for, photos from Ninas Book of Trees Workshop. Let me tell you, Ninas book is so awesome, seeing it in the flesh is a real experience!

Anyway, in this beautiful little cottage, a wonderful group of ladies gathered to create, bond, laugh and cry. Works of art were formed daily, friendships were forged and bonds were strengthened. It was so wonderful to see Nina again (even if she did not recognise me until I was right in front of her!!!!). What a pleasure it was to hear that wonderful accent again.


So, the ladies all had been working hard. These are Mandy Woodhams ...



Here are Cheryl and Mandy H hard at work...

And the gorgeous Denise. This girl has the most amazing style and is such a beautiful person too. Her work is amazing, check out her blog .

And Robyn (seated) and Karen Hardy. Robyn is one of our Wednesday girls and Karen from NSW, what a lovely, sweet person! And yes, that is a little baby bump that seemed to grow daily!!

And the gorgeous Nina, sorry Nina, I should have warned you I was taking the photo!


This is one of Robyns pages...


And the beautiful Mandy Woodham, love this girl. Check out the necklace she is wearing. This is the sample piece for Ninas Sunday class in Melbourne.


And a close up...


Pages from Jackys book...






And Mum and Mandy hard at work...

Little treasures could be found on every available surface...

These are the pieces Mandy was working on in the earlier shot...

Denises work... You have to visit her blog to get the story behind this book and Dulcie.



And Karens pages, these were very soft and romantic.




And this is Mandy Ws completed book. Isn't it spectacular???


Well, all the girls are due home today and I look forward to catching up with Nina again and seeing Mum, it is Mothers Day after all!
To all the Mums out there, have a wonderful day!
