I just finished one of my online classes, "Creating Victorian Valentine Cones".  It's so gratifying when I get feedback from students who were happy with the class. But, even more fun, is seeing photos of projects created using the instructions provided.  Debby, ("The Gathering Nest",)  was one of my students, and she posted a photo of the cone she made and it is really beautiful! I love how she used her own creativity to change it around,  and her use of color and the vintage image is perfect. Thanks so much, Debby!

I've been really busy preparing for my next upcoming class, "Garden Party Gertie", a paper clay rabbit.  If you are someone who has always wanted to try their hand at paperclay, but have been intimidated by it, this project is the perfect chance to jump in.  When Barbara @ Joggles.com asked me to do a sculpting class, I gave a lot of thought on what to create. I wanted something that would be easy enough for someone who has never done anything like this before, but yet, detailed enough for those who have.  It's a 4 week, 4 lesson class,  with step-by-step instructions and lots of photos, where you can work at your own pace.

Debby's cone is so pretty ... love all the special embellishments she used.

Garden Party Gert is adorable ... I see many Easter vignettes with her included in the future!
