Books and Baubles Weekend!!!

Well, it's been two weeks, a flight to Florida and a monster storm that left my girl alone without power since our busy, busy creative weekend!
Everyone did beautiful work with paper, fabric, beads, metal, dried flowers and bees wax, grommets, threads and buttons...
We chowed pot luck style all weekend, had a fabric store field trip, shared gifts, stories, materials and ideas. Once again it was a pleasure to host such an explosive bundle of energy. Slip out directions, ideas and a packet of supplies and off they went into colorful worlds of stitching, folding and gluing. Breaks for food and back at it!!

Annie having way too much fun!!!

We led 13 lovelies through the steps for
  • painting paper
  •  ironing wax bags with dried flowers and bees wax
  • stitching folded fabric paper scraps of this and that
  • wrapping wire, beads, buttons
  • punching holes and squishing grommets
  • putting them together to create wonderful textural books!
