Sunday after Saturday Classes in Arizona

We held our First event at Vintage Bliss Warehouse Market on Saturday.  It was such a great day.

Two classes were held simultaneously.  One was jewelry/necklaces and the other was a papercrafting Explosion Box class.  The laughter was so rowdy at some points!  The cookies & brownies were delish!

Stephanie taught the beautiful explosion box and Jean taught the necklace class.  

We must Thank Tricia Samsal for her fabulous Vintage Bliss Warehouse location.  It is artful and inspiring to see all she creates, from silk slip dresses to jewelry, signs, marquees, vintage household goods and more. She had Darling Vintage Patent Leather purses in bright yellow and orange - perfect for Spring! AND only $10.00 each!

Bobbye and Donna creating!

Sheri and Sally helping each other

Hannah and Tess how gorgeous can you get?

The biggest problem was to choose what to add to the necklaces

Each was a unique and personal creation.

 The other class was all about paper!   Above is Ingrid's take on florals.

Wendy and Joanie giggled allot.

Joanie was inspired and very creative!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
