I know its Friday!
I can't believe it is Friday already! Where did the week go? Wanted to post about what a great class I took from Robin Dudley Howes last Saturday, at an amazing store, Gilding the Lily. I was headed to Orange County here in CA to visit the kiddies, and celebrate Halloween, so the timing was perfect to take a Robin class.
She was teaching a soldering iron class, making these darling reliquary pieces. You can put anything inside, like bird pics, etc. I had to get difficult by adding things to the top. I hadn't picked up a soldering iron in over 35 years, so attaching objects to the front was challenging. But Robin made it happen. I was doing pretty well until my soldering iron starting surging with the power source for some reason. But finally, it was done, wings attached, bling added. Great job Robin, great class!
I brought extra bling, and lots of ladies had some sparkle in their pieces. You can't go without a touch of bling, right ladies?
We started with little match boxes, amazing!
Here is sweet Robin, a great teacher!
Did I mention she's also a belly dancer? Did I mention I used to do that in college?
Here's the gang in the shop. You have to visit that shop if you're in the Fullerton, CA area, and they sell on line too. Nancy, the owner, is the nicest lady, happy to help.
And here's our little sweet ponies at their home. Too cute for a Mad Hatter and a little Princess (of course).
I'm off to Alameda again this weekend. Yikes! More bling?
