Mixed Metal Bracelet Design Wine & Cheese Craft Party

The Mixed Metal Bracelet class was a hit! Chrissy Gemmill taught another great jewelry class.
As always, the hardest part of the class was choosing which colors of beads to use in the many to pick from!

We learned the basic techniques of jewelry making.

After we got down the basis and chose our beads and metal chains, we were set loose to create our bracelets!We all came up with totally different designs! I love to see the finished projects!

Learn to Crochet: Statement Scarf

We had a large class for Sunday's Mimosa Make & Take; "Learn to Crochet- Satement Scarf". Liz and Karla were fabulous teachers- even the most inexperienced crafters learned how to crochet a scarf! We had some excellent munchies- thank you to Dale for making us cookies!So many colors of yarns to choose from! Some of us had a hard time getting the hang of it at first! Here I am showing my mom the wrong way to do it!
It didn't take long for us to catch on. After that the scarf came together quickly!
Lots of fun playing with the yarns...
After the chain was complete, some of us made flower pins to add on, some of us had the teachers make us flower pins to add on and some of us did our own thing! Either way, they all turned out great! The finished results...
