Queen for a Day class

We crowned our ladies!

They came, they made crowns and boxes, and had a ball!  What a talented group we had last weekend, and so much fun.  I loved it, and so did Diana.  It was a quaint class this time, so they got way too much of us!  

Here's a picture of the crowns they made for the boxes they etched.  Didn't they do a great job?  I was so proud.  Those crowns are made from scratch, and soldered on to the boxes!  Yowza!

Here's our lovely group.  Me, Diana, Kashet, Connie, Bridgette and Carrie.

Added bonus with small class!
Since we had so few students, they saw a little bird house I had made, and wanted to make one as well.  So we did, and they are sooooo cute guys, great job.  Challenging, I must say!   We ran out of time to get the birds in, they get to do that at home.

Thanks for taking a look.  
Diana and I have great things planned for the fall class together.  I think it will involve PMC, mixed media and some other wonderful things.  So plan your pennies for October and stay tuned for an announcement in the next couple of months.

Would love for you to join us!
Which project to you like best??

I listed another tutorial and a couple of Hinged Cuff bracelets on my Etsy store.  The first ones flew out yesterday!  Thank you Alice!

Take care,
