Pot Pourri and Winter Wonderland Update

It was a busy November and I am ready to step into December. A late Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!!

Thanks to Cheryl for hosting a Pot Pourri Class at her house this month. We had a fun afternoon. She wanted to do more 3-D projects with a year-round theme, so I came up with six projects.
We made a Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter project and then added in two birthday items.

Our Spring item was a lollipop turned upside down with a flower on the end of the stick. The flower pot hides the actual lollipop.

For Summer we made a the little orange and red bag with the lemon on the front.

The Fall project was the turkey card.

The Winter project was the snowflake origami box.

The birthday projects were a favor box that holds Ghirardelli chocolates and a matching birthday card.

If I can figure out how to post the links for the instructions to these projects I will do so in the next day or two. If I can't I will send them to anyone that requests them by e-mail. The files are pretty big, so hopefully the links will work.

Winter Wonderland Class

Not as many participants as last month, but definitely worth the time. I had three people on Saturday and six people on Sunday.

We had a great time making our tote bag, cards, gift card holder, tags and matching pen.

It was a lot of work but everything turned out great.

I am waiting to post the projects for my January class. I want to see what papers are going to be available in the new catalog - it begins mid-January.

I have one more class before Christmas that my friend Beth is hosting at her house. It is a class for kids. We are making three projects - a Christmas frame, matching candy jar and a matching card. We are expecting about 20 kids, so wish me luck!

My next post should come after Christmas and I should have January class information by then. I am off to work on my Christmas cards. Check back soon!
