I have deleted the sign up page for Romantic Gothic Ghosts so I don't oversell accidently. We are keeping it limited to a small group. But if you are interested, please email me for info. firstname.lastname@example.org
Well, no kits are made up yet, but I do have the studio cleaned and decorated for Romantic Gothic Ghosts next weekend. I'm feeling close to being ready. Maybe I spent a bit too much time on the fun stuff, but the room got cleaned up as I went and its always much more interesting to kind of foof and redo as you clean, isn't it? That makes me feel like I actually did something other than knock down cobwebs.
Of course, its a Halloween party, so I could have just left those up and gone with that.
I decided that I needed another door prize to give away. Friends and I swapped prizes for each other's events, but I wanted to make a couple more too. This is a stack of notebooks glued together and decorated.
To hide the seam where the books were stacked and glued, I covered the bindings in vintage black velvet ribbon.
Jennifer is hosting The Gathering this weekend, and I donated a couple of prizes to it. A wire wrapped nest and the online Three Wire Workshop.
You can read more about the Gathering on her blog. My good buddy, Carol. will be the guest speaker and I hope to go to hear her. She is always entertaining and full of info. Karen's holiday party in Mt Dora, FL is sold out, but she will have another event in Texas in the spring.
But I get done as much as I can.
Yesterday I made 20 some paper clay pumpkins with sticks as stems, painted them white and they are ready to drop into the Raven's Tea kits (when I have kits ready, that is). The students will guild and glitter them and add them to the tableau.
Anywho, the students will get the walnut dyed, coverless book to wrap in ribbon, goodies to make the rhinestone accented tag, and the pumpkin to finish and set next to the teacup.
If you can't come to visit and take the class, but would like some How-to's from me, here is an article coming out in the next Jewelry Affaire. Its always a pleasure to be featured by Stampington in one of their many wonderful publications!
