Playin' with Paper Dolls 2013


Warning:  Image Heavy

Hello People,

Well another spectacular class has come and gone.  We were supposed to start with 10 of us, but due to unforeseen circumstances, there were last minute cancellations and we ended up with 6 of us.  I think it's safe to say we all had a grand time!  Images are not necessarily in order.

Here I'm doing the introduction to the class....notice I'm not
wearing any shoes........I'm at home, I don't hafta..........hee hee.

Here it looks like I'm playing charades or something.  Look to
the left of me at that cute doll clothing banner!!!!  Loretta
made that for me.........I'm so blessed.

CeeKay's card turned out amazing and
she was so tickled with it.

Sharon and Loretta hard at work.

Loretta and her pretty!

Loretta also made two collage pieces.......I think she
actually had fun.

FYI:  I have printed instructions for this class, so if anyone is interested, please contact me and you'll need to send me a legal size Self Addressed Stamped Envelope and I'll be happy to send them off to you, no charge just the cost of the stamp.

All in all, we all had a grand time!  The ladies wish for me to have classes each month, which is very flattering, but during the summer here in Arizona it's just too hot.  However, they are all very, very excited for the big holiday class coming up in November!  We'll be making "Putz" houses for the holidays and having a grand holiday party.  More information on that class will be posted around September, so keep an eye out for that's a biggie!  Some of the images used are from this website "EK Duncan."

Final Note:  My studio is open on Saturdays from 9 a.m. till 5 p.m. for any local crafters wishing to have a place to get together with others and just create and share ideas and knowledge.  If you are interested, please email me at and let me know.

Thanks for stopping by!

Big hugs,
