Brown Paper Packages Class was last weekend
We went from these kits,
to this, in the blink of an eye.
I provide all the supplies needed,
but encourage students to bring special
items to make their projects
I didn't snap a pic of the two big racks of
ephemera, papers, tapes, ribbons, tags,
tinsels, stamps, inks, etc they also use.
We were all in the living room,
since the late season heat wave
prevented us using the new garage
Next class hopefully.
I had some samples left over so
I painted and silver leafed
a branch from my 21 year old tree that
I just had removed, and then hung it above
my sink and draped
more tags and mementos from it.
I will add some teensy battery lights,
as soon as I remember the
perfect spot where I put them, dang it.
I'm playing in the studio all week
like these yummy chenilles.
also working on projects for two
and Christmas items for boutique.
I rearranged the studio about a week ago and
I am loving the new lighter, brighter area.
I removed the curtain that kept the studio hidden.
Floor space remains the same,
but visually much more open.
I also cleaned and purged
every single cupboard and drawer!
I now have many empty ones which also
makes me happy.
All the kids will be here
quite soon, fitting in a visit,
in between extremely
