Mom's friend, Nancy, invited us to come to Glide for a weekend of crafting - we had so much fun! She has this great house!
With Wild Turkeys
And sunshine :)
We arrived to a table full of goodies and gifts. Such sweet ladies - SO generous!!
Our first project was hosted by Pippa - we made a beaded broach
(SIDENOTE: Pippa visited from the UK! She was so much fun and I loved her accent! :] )
|Once your resist dried, you painted over it, then you peel it off. Pretty cool!|
|All the white lines are where the resist was|
|Here are all the finished products - lovely!|
|Water color book marks from Diana|
|Soul Collage Cards - Mine is the one with the cute little African boy - Makes me want to go to AFRICA!!! <3|
|Pippa has a soft spot for ANY man in ANY kind of uniform :) Too funny!! The girls made her this collage of eye candy|

|My dancing fiesta journal page - not finished - I added in song lyrics: |
"You make beautiful things,
You make beautiful things out of dust.
You make beautiful things,
You make beautiful things out of US."
Barbara hosted out next project. We made a "Book in a Box." Barbara is a teacher and shared LOTS of ideas and materials with me for my 6th graders.
|Book in a box :)|
|Pippa introduced us to the international sign for "I need a refill!" :)|
|This little guy just about gave me a heart attack! :)|
