Is there any better time than spring!
Even on rainy days there is so much beauty.

New Schedule

The new schedule is out at the Painted Pony. Check it out here. Lot's of great projects to create. Along with my adult classes, I'm doing some kids workshops in the summer. If you're interested they're in the mini-workshop section.
Remember this? If you don't you'll have to look back on past posts to get the full image. This will be my next workshop at Painted Pony in June.

Flower cards

I found this interesting way of folding paper to make a flower. It can be made using double sided paper but when I tried it the paper was really hard to fold nicely... so I used coffee filters. Made them really easy to fold and gave them a more delicate look. Here are a few of the cards I made with them.

I'm seeing a box with a flower on top and some embossed metal on the side...gotta go create.

Have a Happy Mother's Day!

Concertina book

I've been working like crazy to finish a few more workshops to teach at the Painted Pony. I keep thinking of more ideas but there's just not enough hours in the day to do them all.
Well here's one I just finished. It's a Concertina book. Although it looks small and unassuming on the outside, it has some interesting folds to opens up to lots of photos on the inside. Yes these are my boys a few years ago(like 15!!)...where does the time go.

Well now I have to organize my beads and findings stash and then it's time to create jewelry!

Embossed Metal

Here's a piece I'll probably be teaching at the Painted Pony on the next schedule which is due out soon. This piece is embossed metal from Ten Seconds Studio on a gallery canvas. I'm really enjoying working with the metal and hope to get some different colours to try.
