Mimosa Make & Take "Green Ornament"

We got into the holiday spirit by creating Green Ornaments with Courtney Prahl! And enjoyed some mimosas- yum! We all created a bird (or a star- Cecelia!) with foil and wire...
Not as easy as it looks... A little messy and sometimes hard to manipulate but someohow we all got it!

Next we gathered our desired decorations for our bird. There were choices of tissue, junk mail and old magazines.

Here are our drying birds (and star). They are so colorful and different!

Craft Party Open House

Wednesday night we had our Craft Party Open House! Three of our teachers donated their time and supplies to teach mini make & takes to show what our classes are all about! We had a great turnout and were happy to have it all benefit the Frederick Humane Society. Below is a picture of Traci's table... she taught scrappy style art tags! Just in time for gift giving!
Chrissy Gemmill is a popular jewelry teacher. She had everyone create copper charms! Some people did dog charms and others wrote out their favorite sayings or a personal message.
Fiber artist, Margaret Hluch taught needle felting. This table was extremely popular and people seemed to really get hooked on this craft! The attendees created birds that were needle felted and used as ornaments and pins!
