Hot dog! I fly out at the crack of dawn tomorrow headed for The Creative Connection in St. Paul, Minnesota! I am already overwhelmed by all the fabulousness and the who’s whos of the event and I’m not even there yet! I’ve been busily crafting and packing kits for my two classes:
Here’s a few shots of what I’ve been up to in preparation:
These are the little handmade sisal Christmas trees I made from twine and wire for the Record Cylinder Craft. I’ll be sharing how to make them in class.These are the wrapped antique record cylinders:I’ve been bending a lot of wire for the card and ornament holders:These bags are full of vintage bobbles, ephemera, ribbon, trinkets, sticky things and sparkly things. My class sizes are smaller than I’d previously planned for which means more goodies in the bags for the students!These are large kit supply envelopes sewn from beautiful vintage sheet music courtesy of one of my blog readers, (Thanks Callen!!)I am SO thankful to have my travel to & accommodations at TCC sponsored in whole by these two wonderful companies, ScrapBox and BrightBags.
I’ll be sharing lots more about these fantastic companies and their products this week, so stay tuned!
