I can't believe I forgot to post this on Friday! Here is my latest class at HHS. It is a class on decorating wooden monogram letters. I love making these and wanted to do up a class on them for quite some time. I don't even know if I can count how many I have made as gifts. This set was for my baby nephew's room. When his sister was born, I made a set for her too from the more girly colors of this line of papers from Daisy D's.
If you would like to learn more about the downloadable class based on this project, you can find it at HHS here.
I absolutely love the Noteworthy line from Making Memories. I used it to create these three pieces for Emma's room. The bottom banner needs a better photograph. You can't see it, but there is a brad next to the "d" that says "sweet". I am working on re-doing her room slowly into a shabby pastel bigger girl room and this line fit perfectly into the look I was picturing in my head.
If you notice up above the banner on the top of the page, there is a link for my teaching schedule. In addition to teaching online at HHS, I am returning to teaching live and in person. I will be teaching again at For Keeps Sake in St Louis, Mo beginning January 6th. This Noteworthy collection (all three pieces) will be the class project for that date.
Well, try as I might, I can not import posts from the other blog. I had hoped to import some of my old posts from the HHS blog here so that anyone visiting could see some of my previous posts. Oh well, I guess we will just move forward. All of the older posts are still there, so if you have a hankering to see my older blogging, you still can HERE.
So here we go, a quick Sweetwater project. This is from their Christmas line "Jingle".
My good friend Holly is the most amazing photographer! She owns Pink Gnome Foto and shoots in the St Louis Metro area. This past Sunday she met Anna and I over in Forest Park and shot Anna's senior pictures. They turned out so beautiful. The weather was perfect, the fall leaves were perfect, and Anna had the best time. I love that Holly captured the charm and sparkle that I know and love in Anna. It is so amazing to see what a beautiful young lady she is both inside and out.
We even snuck in a mother/daughter portrait. I tell you, I just don't know where the years go. If you would like to see a slide show with Anna's whole session, you can see it here. If you are in need of beautiful candid photos, you can't go wrong by using Holly. (I know, I sound like a Holly commercial!!)
On Wednesday, Emma got to take her costume to daycare. I didn't realize that there was going to be a walking trip for them and I happened to come across them at the bank when I went to cash a check. I ran back to the station and got a camera, then met them down at the grade schgool. The let the little ones go through the school and get treats from the older kids. That's Dora the Explorer hand in hand with Batman.
