Happy Birthday Debbie!
Today my little sister turns "37"!
Hope you have a great birthday sis - sorry you have to spend it at work!
Friday and Saturday paint classes
At paint class on Friday we painted Christmas Wall hangings. We used the same canvas material that we used for the table runners earlier in the week.
I started this project with 3 snowflakes in the 3 squares.
Then at class, I gave everyone the option of painting ornaments or snowflakes or both - well of course, Nicole chose to paint ornaments and they were so AWESOME that I had to paint them on the "giveaway piece" that I do in class. Barb won the drawing so got to take home the one I did below.
I liked the ornaments so much that I changed my original to have 3 ornaments in the middle for my class on Saturday.
Since Oct. is my one year anniversary of teaching painting classes at HL ~ I decided that every student will get something from me at every class in October ~ a party favor sort of ~ well that is 71 things ~ the most students I've ever had in one month!
For the weekend classes I painted these rose ornaments for each of my students. I painted some glass frames as well but forgot to take photos of those.
(won the drawing for my project piece)
Saturday paint classes
We painted the wall hangings and table runners.
This was Martha's first class and she did a beautiful job!
(Jo won the drawing for my project piece painted in class)
Vickie - she drove all the way from Auburn to come to class ~ no, I'm joking ~ she came to visit her daughter (Stacia) and she came along to paint class.
Table runner class
This was her first class with me and she won the drawing for my project piece painted in class.
WOW! What a busy weekend. I'm ready for a very long nap this afternoon and then have to get stuff ready for my classes tomorrow -we are painting a box of ornaments.
Hope you have a wonderful week! Leave me a comment and let me know you've been by.
Don't forget that every time you do this month you are entered into my October giveaway in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness.
