Workshop today!



 I am off this morning to teach a Valentine workshop at Art From Scrap. I am expecting a flurry of creativity with kids and maybe some adults too. I made some heart garlands for ideas but anything goes!
I like all the ways you can configure the word LOVE and hope they can have fun with all the materials at hand to create some valentines and decorations for Feb.14.

 Here you can see the paper birds in the center of the heart mobile I made for our workshop today.

 Had to get in a little rug hooking this week! Made this Milagro heart on burlap. It is now stuffed and ready to go.

 Last night was the fourth anniversary of the Art Clinic and I hopped over to help celebrate. The lovely mascot was dressed up for the party. Lots of folks showed up and enjoyed the valentine making, good eats, and music complete with a Haiku making time.

 Yummy cupcakes, fresh strawberries and more!

 Lots of creativity going on for a birthday group who came to help celebrate.

Carol and Syd, the gracious hostesses and creative spirits of the Art Clinic. We get together again this Sunday to work on some fun circle applique projects. Can't wait! I 'll take photos!

Mary.... I saw those plates on another blog. I googled Pier One and went to our store location, and it immediately let me know if that location carried the plates. They also come in green and gold.
