Friday Day 1.............Travel Journal
(The Cookies above were in the shape of the United States)
I hope the students over the weekend enjoyed their Character Construction Marathon, and let me tell you it was a marathon. I knew these classes would be non-stop and they were but for the most part they finished and just needed to do a few extra tweeking when they got home. You all know if you have ever taken any of my classes that the goal is to have projects you can finish in class and take it home to enjoy and not stuck in a closet somewhere unfinished. Not knowing how long each of these would take it was a little uncertain but for the most part they did have completed 2 of the 3 projects.
We had several new students and several at the last minute cancel for various reasons but we still had a great group. The two gentlemen on the left of me in this photo flew in from California to take the classes. Greg and Anson were troopers to come all the way to Oklahoma for a weekend to take 3 classes and listen to us Okies for two days. I hope we didn't wear them out. They were a delight to have and we sure hope they come back! Thanks guys!
Saturday Day 2 morning Santos........
Saturday Day 2 afternoon Patriotic Pinwheel...............
This was a little tricky to try and change up the tablescapes for each class while the students were still working on their projects, but I wanted each class to be special so thanks everyone for letting me interrupt and change up things.......
She may kill me for this photo but I thought it was sweet!
Well I can say one thing about this weekend we did it! I never dreamed we could have 3 classes in two days............WOW! Some of you took all 3 classes or maybe 1 or two but you all did an amazing job and I hope I didn't wear you out. One thing about the group of students we have you always come to class ready to work and always put up with little delays but you just keep on and work hard to get the project finished and I thank you! And Thank You to Cindy for The Paper Crown.........if it wasn't for you we would not have such a special place to come and create.
I celebrated another birthday last week so Miss Cindy surprised me friday during class with these gorgeous flowers and this delicious cherry tart............Thank You!
Thank You each student for making our first Character Construction weekend marathon another event to remember. Hopefully we can have the creator of these wonderful stamps join us next time, Catherine Moore. Thanks Catherine for these wonderful stamps!
I think I've rambled long enough. I need to go unload my car now.............Happy Monday everyone!
