Lori sent the prettiest kits to make these tone on tone, romantic wreaths. She'd sent a couple boxes by UPS ahead of her flight, filled with kits and packaged pretties to sell at our vendor night. The boxes arrived soaked to the bone! So wet that the tape was falling off and the boxes were caved in. Luckily, she'd wrapped everything in plastic and there was no damage.
What did the driver say about it? "Sorry, my truck has a leak" Well, it must have been quite a leak, or else he has been parking in the lake.
This is my second bad experience with UPS. The mural I sent to CA was dropped off to be packaged and sent by UPS, and when it arrived, the paint was damaged due to the box being too loosely packed and the painting bobbing around, and rubbing inside the box. I was able to repaint the damaged area, but wasn't very happy about it.
Anyway, nothing of Lori's was ruined and her kits were wondrous.
During her class, I was a bit busy due to bad planning on lunch. I was too busy with other stuff to chop and prep ahead of time (oops!) for our build your own burrito bar and spent the whole length of Lori's class working on it instead. Silly me!
I did pop in to visit and get a peek of the class every once in a while, but didn't get to sit down and make a wreath myself with them. But Lori saved a kit for me and I was able to get to it later on. She included some great images and papers to make tags to tie onto the fabric wrapped wreath, and I had a good time with it later in the week when I had a chance to get to it.
This way, I have two projects in one! Double the memories to hang in my studio.
Both teachers were just The Best! I loved having them here. Both pitched in and helped with miscellaneous chores, and Beth was in charge of accounting for the vending tables. And while I was trapped at the cutting board, I had no worries about being needed out in the classroom, which was quite the relief.
Beth had a great project that everyone enjoyed too.
I was doing two classes, one each day after lunch was served and cleaned up.
I have a few kits that I'd made up extra for my birdcages with fairies and my knotted ribbon necklaces. If you'd like to buy one, they are each $30 plus shipping. The birdcage kit includes the online workshop, with instructions for multiple birdcages and cloches.
