This was a nesting weekend for me. My husband is out of town, Sugarwings is with parents, nothing was on TV that I wanted to see, and I had nothing but studio time! (but I have to confess I couldn't go the whole weekend without snuggles, I had to sneek over to my son's house to hold the baby Sis-star for a while)
So, I made up two more banners for my Bird Song event this spring.
I want everyone to have choices for their project. I'll have lots of examples made up and plenty of pretty papers to work with.
With this one, the variations will be countless! I can't wait to see what our 20 students make.
Thanks for your patience in waiting for me to get the ball rolling on this class. Sign ups are SOON.
Thanks also for your kind words about my worries for Sugarwings. I appreciate all the private emails and messages about your own kids. We always hurt more for our little ones than for ourselves, don't we?
After making up all the banner bits, I got busy typing up instructions and drawing the patterns. I hope I don't get a stiff neck from patting myself on the back too much, but I just have to brag about how early I am getting this done.
I've got all the stacks of vintage paper, wallpaper, tags, chip board, millinery flowers, turquoise bird egg beads, moss, and tons of other goodies laid out on my table ready to make up the kits.
MONTHS ahead of time!!!!!!!!!!! Yep, there is lots of back patting going on around here.
Not only that, but I did a quickie, little painting for the Moulin Rouge event I am attending in March too. Here is a corner of it.
I'm so proud of myself that I am taking the night off now, to go sit in front of the TV with a good movie and a plate of rotisserie chicken from the grocery store. There is nothing like vegging out in front of the TV with food I didn't have to cook, after a couple of days of hard work.
