Weekend fun!

((Pictures will follow soon!))
We spent the weekend in the "almost" Hill country! Lake Whitney!! They were having a county wide rummage sale! I had never seen nor heard of such a thing! Almost every house in the county had a yard sale going on! I found some amazing antique items to alter or use in my classes and booths! Silver platters for $1.00~~ amazing!!
I have been on the ultimate search for box springs for a project!! We found my box springs~ I was wanting about 12! I have 66 springs :) I can create for days! Tommy and Stephanie took the box springs apart for me~ with Lexi's help! It was quite the chore... David and I would have never accomplished the task :)
I will post pictures of some of my fun finds soon!
I'm also working on getting pictures up for my Spring/Summer Girls Art Camp!
I'm perpetually behind schedule!! It doesn't help that we shop all day Saturday every weekend and I can't get everything done on Sunday!
This Saturday we are going to Antique Alley in Cleburne. I can't wait! 25 miles of antique and vendor fun... A smaller version of Round Top!
Pictures will post soon!

Tweet.. Tweet.. Paper Cowgirl Class

Come fly with me.. Altered bird trinket box and domino necklace!
Come fly with me…. So cute and petite! This little altered bird trinket box is home to a shiny, glitzy altered bird! The bird is nesting atop two altered boxes covered in a variety of vintage & colored paper, vintage sewing pattern scraps and crepe paper.
Each person will start with the same resin bird….
And create a unique….
One of a kind… piece of art….
You will create the wings with grunge paper (a great flexible & fun paper.) You will embellish your sweet bird with faux pearls, a petite crown, crepe paper and vintage German glass glitter, white glitter and Stickles.
You’ll have Tons of papers to choose from….
You can’t leave with an empty trinket box…. So you will then create an altered vintage domino necklace. I will have an assortment of bird images to decorate your vintage domino with. I will have an assortment of images in black and white with some wonderful new Copic markers out to design a one of a kind pendant. You will choose a ribbon necklace to hang your newly created wearable work of art! Your trinket box will be the perfect place to store your creation.
My class comes with all the needed supplies (just bring your basic toolkit.) This is a class for all levels. If you’ve never worked with grunge paper~ now is the time to begin! Your art will be personalized to your personality!
Go to the Paper Cowgirl website to register for this fun class!! Hope to see you in June!

Grunge paper

I was sifting through my scrap closet this evening and came across the Tim Holtz grunge paper that I purchased to make leaves with~~ as I was sitting here looking at my project for Paper Cowgirl~~ I realized the sweet little bird really needed some new "Grunge" wings!! Which lead to adding a bit of other embellishments! I really think I like her new look much better! What do you think?
