Skull Aprons At Last

About 100 years ago, I got a big batch of skull denim and told myself I'd make some aprons, among other things with the fabric. Well last night, it finally happened. The results are in my etsy shop. I have just enough left to make two tote bags, and then it will all be gone but the scraps. I used the rest for my Halloween fabric book class coming up. I hope someone has as much fun wearing them as I did making them!

Tricks, Treats, Toil & Trouble

These are pictures of the pages participants will be making in the Tricks, Treats, Toil & Trouble Halloween book class at Frenzy Stamper coming up on Oct. 17th. There are still some spots left if anyone wants to join us. One pocket of the book will be saved for trick-or-treating in class. Each participant will bring tricks or treats (think plastic spiders, candies, recipes for concoctions, an ATC, etc.) to trade. Almost all of the supplies are included in the class fee, including the Tibetian Silver charms which I am pretty darn excited about. There will be extra pockets to store any additional Halloween goodies you would like to add later. Above are some pictures to give you an idea of the pages. If you want to sign up, go to Debbie's website for more info. It is going to be a great time!
If you can't make it on the 17th at Frenzy, we're gonna play it again at Studio 23 on the 25th. Leave a comment if you want to join us in the studio!

What's up?

Insert huge sigh of relief here. My proposals to teach for Art Unraveled, 2010 have been emailed. It's a nice step up to apply for something this big, but if I am selected, I know I can handle it. Teaching at Jeane's house, at smaller local venues, and in my home studio, Studio 23 have prepared me, not to mention all the practice with those kiddos.

And speaking of teaching in my home studio, which I haven't taught in for profit for a while, that big adventure begins again tomorrow. Five ladies are coming over to do classes they couldn't get to when they have been offered before, and we're gonna squeeze in some lunch, and have some great times playing and creating. Four of them will be working on a book, part of which is shown in the photos with this posting. There are other pages besides the ones shown. Penney will be off in her own proverbial corner doing her own thing with a leftover kit from a different project that she missed while in her Virginia home this summer, while I actually teach the other class. She's coming early so she'll be off and running before the next doorbell rings. I can't wait to see them all!

If anyone wants to make a Halloween book, please go to the Frenzy Stamper website for a sneak preview of just a little of the upcoming Halloween book. There are even better surprises on other pages. The graveyard pages are my favorite. Anyway, when was the last time you went trick-or treating? You remember how fun that was, right? That will be a little part of the class. Go to the website for more details, then come join us and make an amazing book!
