Our Galentine's party was such fun, I threw a second one! Some friends came by to hang out and create with me. At Snowbird's Song, I didn't have time to work on my bird from Lesa's class, and pulled out the kit to get started with a Valentine's point of view.
I like her on the dining table as centerpieces with the gifts Randy sent to me. But I think I will add some feathers to her arms and turn them into wings. That is not Lesa's style to do that, but that is the fun of creating rom a kit, right? You get the knowledge and info from the artist, the supplies to put the piece together, and also the opportunity to make it your own with a spin or two.
For my first workshop in February, I'd bought fresh roses for the table. Then, though I planned to replace them, I'd had some issues (lots of issues, really) with back pain and never made it to the store to buy more. So, I let these dry as is and I think I'll just enjoy them this way for a while.
Valentine's Day has been almost like Christmas for me! The table runner is a cut velvet scarf from my SIL, the candy box and card are from Randy.
Here are more of the dried roses, next to a candle gifted to me by my pal, Nora.
And Beth created this rug, knitted from fabric!
It is a lovely touch for my pink and glitter walled bathroom. I've been thinking about adding some pink roses to the hand painted floor too. Right now the floor is neutral flowers, so the walls can be changed at any whim, but I sure am wanting some pink roses..... For now, those back problems I mentioned are stopping me. Painting a floor isn't easy even when your back is feeling wonderful.
This lil cupid was captured in this glass heart by Tami.
She also treated me to a vintage honey pot that I am storing our jar of home grown honey in upside down.
Aren't the bees on it super cute?
Thanks for the thoughtful gifts, everyone!!
And thank you to Lesa for the great kit to build!
