This last Friday our local MOPS (Mother of Preschoolers) group met. I get to coordinate the activities (crafts) for this group. This time we made these pretty little necklaces. Very simple and inexpensive to make. They are made with Creative Impressions tags, we used rectangular ones. We rubbed on designs from American Crafts, then coated them with Versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder. Add a large jump ring with a bead on it, and you are finished. An easy, beautiful craft to do with a large group of people, including many who do not usually do crafty things. Here are some photos of some of these beautiful moms working on thier necklaces.
Yesterday I got to spend most of the day teaching my Texture Tiles class right here in McMinnville. It is so fun to teach classes like this one. Tons of techniques, tons of products, and each person creates a project that is uniquely their own. I wanted to take pictures of all of their projects at the end, but I forgot my camera. One of the ladies suggested taking pictures on my phone, so I did take one, then realized that I don't know how to put them on my computer. I think my husband will have to help me figure out how to do that. I am learning a lot on the technology end of things, but I still have a long way to go.
