    Gilding the Lily

    Gilding the Lily workshop
    Saturday March 23, 10a-4p

    Come join the fun at Gilding in Fullerton!  This is such a fun class.  I taught this for the very first time in Tucson, and the ladies has so much fun.  I didn't get photos of everyone's work dang it, but here are a few I did snap.


    Didn't they do an amazing job??




    I was a tad concerned it might be too easy for them, and the LOVED the class. They said it was fabulous and hard, due to the design and layering challenges, and then executing a plan.  Yipee! Just what a teacher hope for, challenging and they love the project and finish it!  
    Great job ladies.

    And....the next secret word may be found at Mary Beth Shaw's blog!
