Creative Fun…

Dec 5, 2010

Saturday, Trisha Conlon and I got to spend the day with this wonderful group of artists at “The Crafty Scrapper”. Each one created their very own snow globe.

I taught the paper part of the project which included altering the base of the snow globe, building the little house, creating a crepe paper rosette and then of course sprinkling everything with glitter and mica. It was so fun watching everyone’s project come together.

Each little house was the same yet so different as everyone used different parts of their Melissa Frances patterned paper.

Once everyone finished their sweet little house they then began to add everything to the altered base of the snow globe.

Once everyone go to this point we all took a break for lunch, which came from “The Dove’s Nest”, next door. I am truly addicted to their Chicken Apricot Salad. I eat it every time I go to Waxahachie.

After lunch it was then Trisha’s turn to teach. She taught the soldering part.

Freddie picked up on the soldering super fast even with all the distractions of his sweet friend Prissy. (seen in the purple shirt) She was popping off some true funnies while he was soldering. She kept everyone laughing.

Once everything was soldered the hot glue gun came out. Freddie pretty much put himself in charge of helping everyone attach the feet of their snow globe, to which Prissy, once again, had us all laughing with her hilarious comments. I tell ya it can’t be easy being the only male among this group of women.

I got photos of all the snow globes but one… CAROLYN’S… yes, Carolyn FINISHED a project. Although, she did have a little help from others and it was after everyone left but she managed to finish it while doing an adorable make-n-take and helping customers in the store as well as making sure the kids in her community got Santa photos after the morning parade. That girl is a worker bee.

Trisha and I left 2 kits for purchase at the store. If you would like one give The Crafty Scrapper a call… 972.923.3151 they will even mail it to you.
