I have so many things that I am excited about right now, both personal and business related, that it is difficult to choose on any given day what I want to talk about. Because I am still on an adrenalin rush from the wonderful turnout of Collected Treasures' first Open House yesterday, I think I will choose to list the class line up for fall. If you look to your right you will see there are so many to choose from.....or why on earth make yourself choose.....go for all of them and let us be your fall entertainment :) One half of the class fee is due at the time of registration and the remainder due on class day. Refunds are not given, however, can be transferred to the next same subject class upon instructor approval. Class sizes are limited so early registration is recommended. You can call for additional information or simply stop by the store to sign up.
Lisa McIlvain of Tarnished and Tattered (a wonderful dealer inside my store) http://tarnishedandtattered.com/blog/ will be teaching the altered apron class and it promises to be something everyone will love.....think Christmas presents.......she teaches how to take personal photos and transfer them on aprons, and so much more.....what a fabulous gift and how very creative. I know I want one!
Charlene Gray of My Hearts Ease (a precious new friend) http://myheartsease.blogspot.com will be instructing students on how to make the fabulous soldered glass charms everyone loves so much......once again, think Christmas and how divine it would be to use old photos or treasures to create gifts for loved ones and friends........don't miss this one!
Then, of course, there is ME.......learn how to paint lovely tole roses and add them to suitcases, frames, tiny ballet shoes, footstools......well, you get my drift....you can paint them on ANYTHING and make it special........if you have always loved these roses and always wanted to do them yourself...come join the class and see how easy it can be....no advance painting knowledge required....just a willingness to practice so you develop your own style.
Then there is the repeat of the mixed media altered art memory books made from.....well, you guessed it, paper lunch bags. These are the most wonderful little treasures and can be designed for holidays, birthdays, or any other special event. One of my students from the last class makes them for every holiday.......I adore her enthusiasm and talent!
The very last class of the fall season is the most requested........if you have read my blog or been in my store you will surely recognize my rusched antique velvet roses. I put them on everything from hats, to purses, to clothing.........and they are adorable.......I'm willing to share my secrets and teach this to anyone wanting to learn......they are so fun.
