About Me

Sissy Dre was inspired by my father, Robert Felix Rosales, particularly his stylish clothes and big-hearted ways of being. My father was always open to any new hobbies or opportunities and especially enjoyed meeting new people. I take on this creative venture to honor him in my own way. Creating from scratch has opened artistic doors within me that I never knew existed and I hope this blog helps to inspire some crafty part of you too. 000000

Mad Hatter Tea Party ~ Hosted by "The Garden of Beaden"

Alice in Wonderland Tea Party! 

On Wednesday evening May 26th, the "Garden of Beaden" held a
"Mad Hatter Tea Party" , hosted by Proprietor Irene Sanchez.

The "Garden of Beaden" host a quarterly Artists bead / creative art piece,
challenge. This is where the shop provides the theme of the challenge and the
local artists provide the artistic creative art pieces, based on the theme.
Irene,  encourages not just bead work to be entered in these challenges, but
any and all types of creative endeavor, that invokes the imagination of the current
challenge, using the chosen theme.

Last quarters challenge was "Alice in Wonderland" and anyone who has seen the movie
featuring  Jonny Depp, knows how creative one could get with this animated movie.

A mandatory requirement for this specific challenge ~ at the wrap 
up party ~ all would be required to attend the event with a 
favorite tea cup and loveliest hat your own, borrow, or make.

Let's hurry to the the party, before the "Mad Hatter" tells us to leave .....

At the end of the evening ~ we all had a chance to taste about
eleven different types of teas, they were all so delicious!
The Artist further chatted with each other about their projects and how
unique each individual piece turned out, exchanged business cards, blog address, ect.

You know, stuff like ....what's the next new adventure in the life and times of a Artist ~

The next "Garden of Beaden" challenge will be

In the mean time ~ continue to motivate & stimulate

He stretches smiles
where there hung only frowns.
He places twinkles
