I had the AWESOME privilege to attend Handmade U in Nebraska on May 12-14, 2016. Rachel Mcgough is the Hostess and owner of this beautiful barn that holds the event. Her special guest teacher this semester was Mindy Lacefield!!! Which had me floating with excitement!!! I love her ART!!!
The Handmade U staff.
Rachel's husband bought her a photo booth for her anniversary one year...and they got it to print the Handmade U logo down the middle. Then we formed lines down the sides of the booth...and ran in and out as fast as we could for everyone to have as many people in their pictures as possible. That was super FUN!!! Here is my photo strip!!!
The grounds were just so pretty. Here you can see both the house and the barn.

Inside the Barn...getting ready for classes.
The first class was Quiltdori's with Rachel. Here you can see everyone's finished dori's. Mine is on the top row, second from the left. Mindy's is the first one next to mine. They all look great!!!
The second class was Mindy Lacefield.... an Altered child's board book.
Mindy showing us some demos. If we all look cold?.... that is because we are!!
Me probably most of all...I believe I was the only one from the southern regions. (Florida) My teeth chattered all day!!! lol!!! :0)

I got to meet another long time IG friend @packerdi_honestheartstudio . Dianne and I have never met...but have been friends on Instagram FOVEREVER!! It was AWESOME!!!!
This barn is just gorgeous!!!
Last photo...I wanted to take a selfie with as many people as I could get to fit in the picture. And Mindy took my phone and stood on the picnic table and peeked her head around the corner and snap...we had a great last selfie of the group!!!
Awesome time!!! If you ever get a chance to go to one of Rachel's Handmade U's....I highly recommend it!!!
