Anyway now that I've hopefully gotten your attention, here are the details of my class on Saturday.
Saturday October 16th Where: Scrap-it in Santa Cruz Class: Pocket Shrines Description: Ever want to keep someone or something special close to your heart? How about that small very precious gift? Does it need a special place all its own? How about creating shrines to hold these special memories or gifts? In this class using collage and assemblage we will create these special places inside altoid tins. Your shrine can then be slipped into a pocket or purse to keep close to you at all times. Or it can be placed on a shelf as a special keepsake. Pocket Shrines also make great gifts to give to a loved one. Items to bring: Scissors, Paintbrushes, any special items small enough to fit into an Altoid tin. Time: 11:00 to 2:30 Fee: $45.00 Class limit: 6 To sign up for class please call Scrap-it at 831 475-2380 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I also wanted to show you this wonderful spirit that was created last weekend during my class at Scrapbook U. Isn't this great? I love the colors and the use of the mesh and fiber at the top to present a totally different texture from the rest of the bottle.
Last weekend was my last class at Scrapbook U in Fremont. After almost 9 years Monica Martinek is finally closing her doors. This is very sad for all of us. We are losing a wonderful store filled with the best and latest items. But I want to give a great big thank you and hug to Monica and her staff for allowing me to teach in her wonderful space. She certainly did not have to allow this wierd Mixed Media Artist in her store but she did graciously and welcomed my classes in with open arms and open mind. And that can be a very rare commodity at times. I truly want to thank Monica and her entire staff for the opportunity. I'm going to miss you all.
