a great fun, no pressure type of layout class. Sign up today. This class also requires a commitment to 12 classes - not a drop in class. this is a great beginner class. The January layout is shown below.
A bunch of us are heading to "Farm Chicks" in Spokane again in June. It is a gathering of vintage vendors peddling their wares at the fair grounds. It happens the first weekend in June. This year we will be looking for things to alter in classes. Lynn thinks that an old window could be done up nicely in shabby style. I already have 6 vintage printer drawers from last year - need a few more. Pails, milk bottles, sewing machine drawers, crates, suitcases - FUN, fun, fun!
That's all for now!
