It was a fun and crafty weekend!

Yes, yes it was.  I am actually glad to be at home and not out and about running around cause I am really a home body at heart and this has been a busy week running Heather to her surgery and follow up on Tuesday and Wednesday and then doing something that was craft related for hours and hours each day the rest of the week.

It started on Thursday for me when I taught a tag making class making Easter tags with a group of women at Scrap That in Norman!  I taught 3 tags using Tim Holtz style techniques, stamps, and threw in a few 'extras' that made sure we had some fun.  Everyone seemed happy with their tags and said that they would book again next month for the 'group therapy!'

I think this purplish pink tag is a favorite!  I love the colored Easter egg popped up and given a 3d effect!

You can see the 3rd tag in this was the furry one that my friend dubbed as creepy and since she took the class I had to cut her a paper rabbit out of a Starbucks corrugated cup cozy!

Friday was the painting class with Heather and the rest of the class mates at Scrap That!  I posted on that class in a previous post but I am so proud of my painting I am reposting it here!
Don't you love those yellow flowers!
Saturday was an all day crop at Scrap That! where 28 women got together to visit and share fun time doing what they like to do best...craft and gossip!   We all had projects going that were different so when you needed to exercise a bit we would wander around and check out what the next tables were doing. 
Heather was checking her text messages here but spent the day painting some canvases for her painting classes next monthIf you are interested contact Scrap That! at 310-3400 to sign up. 

I was busy trying to get some stuff done for classes next month too.  I was having brain issues though and seemed to throw more stuff in the trash then I got accomplished!  I hate it when I do that so I spent a bit more time wandering around trying to get motivated to create then I did actually making anything.   I did manage to finish another month in the Graphic 45 calendar pages! 

Anyway it was a good weekend but I am glad it is Sunday evening and a day of rest!
