Taking the Class - Thank You Ladies

This is BlessedGemLady. I think she forgot to mention that she made the shirt she's wearing. I crochet and have used that thread before - - let's just say she's got mad skills. Serious skills. Blessed is so sweet and I don't think she's ever met a stranger. Believe it or not, I'm shy. I'll run my mouth all day on the phone and chat until my fingers hurt - but in person, I can go into my cocoon. So thank you Blessed for tearing my cocoon off and pulling out the butterfly in me. When I finally made it to her class everyone knew about me and Tomoka's Twists - and Blessed really set the stage - the lights, cameras, props, and all.
I don't want to use real names but this lady is so cute and she's a sharp dresser too. The camera doesn't capture the color of her hair, it was HOT!
This young lady is wearing the Tomoka's Twist made from Sue Beads on Ebay. She's a soon to be mommy so I got her to rub my arm a little.
Left - Blenna our Master Trainer, you have got to meet this lady. Right - This young lady was so nice to me in class. She's from Barbados and when I make it there - I have got to beg her to show me around.

Words can't really describe how I'm feeling right now. 1,000,000 THANK YOU'S is not enough. I'll let the pictures do the talking for now.

greetings carmen. i love the pictures. wasn't blenna great. my hair never looked as good as the times that she styled it for me. $1k is truly a bargain to learn from some an experienced professional like blenna! if i am ever in nc, i just might have to let you practice on my head since you were trained by one of the best. many blessings to you. you will have as many clients as you can handle before you know it!

Muslimahlocs, I surely am hoping to get my name out there. I've been scanning for people to lock since I decided to take the class.

Beaut1ful1, I know it was hard to capture the energy and love from your days in training, but you did a great job, even if I do look like I had a few drinks before we took pictures - LOL!! Thank you for ALL the love and I am truly looking forward to getting some time to hang with you in the near future. I will be passing out your Tomoka Twists cards and posting a picture of me wearing one of mine very soon. And it goes without saying that I'll be sending prospective SLers in your part of NC directly to you. I can't wait to start hearing your success stories, there will be many!

AWWW! Orange hair lady - I do know your name! I hope you didn't mind me posting the pics. I never really grasped the concept that this is the WORLD WIDE WEB. Thank you for your kind words too. You got the tears about to fall.

Paylar - Purple seems to be hot this year - you will see it! I'll email you.

Carmen, THANKS A LOT! I'm jumping up and down, even if it's on the inside.

I'm gonna need some preparation pointers from you, just so I'll know what to expect.

Hey! Blenna is my consultant! That's so funny. She is extremely fast - I think she installed my sisterlocks in 9 hours. Glad to see you had a great time!
