aka giving books new life -
and keeping me occupied and off the streets!
A new book store opened recently in our neighborhood
besides a terrific selection of books
and locally made gifts,
they're offering classes
featuring paper ephemera!
SO right up my alley!
I treated myself to two classes this week -
and am so glad I did!
do NOT look closely at these projects
if your Type A is on overdrive.
My projects are NOT perfect -
in fact, I cut the book
out of which I made the pumpkin upside down
which would drive some folks crazy -
me, not so much!
After all, I'm not going to read it!
While the sample for paper wreath class was featured with darling black bats on it,
I decided I had enough Halloween stuff around
and what I really wanted was a hostess gift for my niece
who's having the entire Chicago family over to her house
So I went with a more winter seasonal theme -
which I think will be perfect for her!
ignore those pesky pumpkins in the background -
And, since they can be made in less than two hours,
don't be surprised if they show up again
as Christmas presents for even more of my friends!
