an artful voyage - club 300, a beautiful necklace, and more



About Club 300....I was seated at Table 300 for dinner.  I didn't know a soul, but I'm not shy, so I wasn't worried.  However, having been on many cruises I knew that the "wrong" people or the "wrong" waiter can go a long way to spoiling a cruise experience.
Well, the luck of the draw was with me.  We were a table full of friendly, lively, and FUNNY women, and we were also blessed with the very best waiter in Robert, and assistant in Jude.
We quickly became not a table, but a cohesive group, hence Club 300.  Stephanie from NJ is our president, and Andrea, also from NJ (yea! the east coast was represented well!), who was never without her camera, is our historian.  We also all have nicknames.  For some reason, I'm called Bronx.  Go figure.  LOL!

Stephanie, Me, Andrea and an interloper from another table behind us.  LOL!


Jude and Robert gave the BEST service and we always got extras without asking.


How could we not be a happy table with such a happy waiter?




The wait staff even provided entertainment.




These are the only table pictures I took????  I must have been too busy eating.  I have to go blog hopping and steal some more.

After dinner (remember, it's still Friday, October 16th), I raced to my cabin to change for Wendy's short class.  We used Tim's fragment charms and beautiful papers and bling to create necklaces.  I also added some idea-ology pieces in between the charms.  I really love this piece and plan to make more.




And now for something completely different.....here is Kathy who really believed in wearing her art.  In my first post about the cruise there's a picture of her at the hotel in L.A. showing off one of her altered shoes.  Here Kathy models an awesome grungepaper vest:






The voyage is almost over....sigh.....but there's still Tim's mega class and the farewell cocktail party.  So stay tuned.....

Your pictures and stories about the cruise make me smile. I am so happy you had so much fun. Totally worth it.

Love to continue to hear about "your" cruise. We had the best group in our table (we all knew each other beforehand) but we had the WORST waiter. I'll be smarter next time - I will ask to be moved to another table if the waiter is a jerk, like ours was!

The pale color stands for death!
