I've been working on several journals recently for samples and new class ideas.  This first one is a sample.  It's simple, clean and very me.  That's what I want to convey to the people that take my classes.  Everyone makes something that reflects their creativity, taste, and ideas. 

The next one is a 10" album cover (the actual LP is so damaged it is not playable) but I LOVED the cover, francophile that I am.  Imagine if you found or have that album you loved to death but the LP is scratched or you don't have a turntable anymore.  Well, if you can stand to alter it and create something that will be with you longer and remain part of your life, let's make a journal!  Would you like to take this class?  Let me know! 

Off to make something else.

What is felting?

Notes from Shari

During the past two weeks, celebrations have been the main theme around our house with our 5th wedding anniversary and my husband's birthday (a significant one).  So first a weekend away for us and then a fabulous bowling party with our family and friends to ring in hubby's birthday!  He loved it.
