Standing Curio Class at Prairie Art Stamps

We made beautiful music Saturday in class at Prairie Art Stamps!

Oh, yes we did!  Donna and Tina created some while drying the Alcohol Ink in their little bottles by blowing into them....which did make a familiar sound from childhood....pop bottles, remember them???

Tina was a first-time student and the smile on her face when she left is what makes teaching all worthwhile.

I am sorry that I didn't get pictures of everyone's faces...those with their backs to me...I am sorry.

Supplies are all over...the students were hard at work. But sometimes they were concentrating so hard, you could've heard a pin drop!

But most of the time, chattering and laughter is what we're all about.

Here MaryLynn and Pam share a moment.

Pam's beautiful daughter Penny blessed us again with 2 fabulous bakery treats.

Penny is an amazing baker. Generous to a tee, and the goodies were definitely from heaven.

She was the hit of the day!!!! Thank you Penny for your wonderful generosity and talent.

Deb, the uber talented, came up with some really fabulous ideas along the way...

And MaryLynn was right there to add some fun throughout the day.

Sweet Sue used her leftover metal to add to her project. IT WAS AMAZING!!! Loved her idea....wish I'd gotten a picture of it, but I wasn't thinking.....or maybe I was thinking about the other half of my Penny Perfect Treat calling my name....????

I try hard to make my classes "laid-back and fun."  No pressure, just creative exploration.

Here Judy, who I am blessed to call my friend and cohort, shows the laid-back, relaxing atmosphere we endeavor to make in class.

So poking playful fun here at Rhonda.....trying to make her paint dry just a little bit faster by blowing on it.

Hey, whatever works!

And Dear Linda her to pieces....if you have the chance to take her Memory Box Classes...don't hesitate. She is brilliant!!!!

So, all in all, a great day. And many, many thanks to Terri and the staff...Annette and the 2 Judys.

They make it like Disney to come know..."the Happiest Place on Earth" least for all of us Dabbling Artists!

Next stop......The Scrapbooking Studio in Bloomington!
