All of my kits are done and packed up, ready to hit the road next week and take them to Paper Cowgirls.
Before I put all of the supplies away, I made up a couple custom kits, this one is for my Sissy. I used the very old, pure silk, French ribbon that Carol Spinski gave to me.
While Sissy's kit is special, I think all of the other kits are too, and I hope the students enjoy them. Each includes:
- written directions plus an online how to, that includes this wreath as well as a fairy crown, and bird nests, also made of wire
- millinery flowers
- 3 gauges of wire
- vintage beads and crystals
- ephemera to cover the bird and make the leaves
- lace for leaves
- ribbons and vintage lace
- shredded paper, moss, and a turquoise egg to make the nest
No two are just alike, if they had to be, I'd never have made soooo many of them, I get bored. So, I had some fun with the decor. When I get to my (small) class, there will be plenty for the students to chose from.
I have a couple listed in the Boutique right now. Please email me if you would rather have pink, instead of the aqua kit, when you order.
Edit- well, those 5 went fast! If I have any more left after Paper Cowgirls, I'll let you know. Please email me if you are interested
Next, it will be time to work on the kits for Birdsong. I hope to get them done WAY ahead of time. Trouble is, I am still waiting for some elements I ordered for the necklace we'll be doing! I hate to make up the example necklace till I have all the materials in front of me. Don't you hate taking a class and finding out that the best items in the project have been subsituted for something different?
The event is fast approaching, and if my order doesn't come in, I'll have to try elsewhere for the pieces. But I do promise to come up with something pretty!
There are a couple of openings left, if you would like to come.
And I promise, there really are FOUR classes, my necklace will be done and ready by the time all of my peeps arrive!
