Halloween BOO Class
A wonderful small group of my students hard at work building the BOO Banner in wooden blocks. My dear friend, Melissa Rodgers - formerly of Pagosa Springs - very kindly agreed to prepare 10 packets to allow me to teach this adorable tabletop decoration many miles away from her. Her staff at her great store, REMEMBER THIS REMEMBER THAT, in Gardner, Kansas helped her die cut some interesting pieces to make this special BOO for us. Melissa had posted the BOO, which she had created for an event and also a class she has now taught in her store. I saw this post on her website, www.RememberThisRememberThat.com and her other site on www.TwoPaperDivas.com. The next day I emailed her and told her that we needed to talk. The rest is history as they say!! Thank you again Melissa and please thank your gals who helped make this possible.
YES....we are in my garage because I wanted all of us to be able to spread out. Not a pretty backdrop for the pictures but functional. As the morning went on, we opened the garage door and it was a gorgeous Fall day. How lucky we were to enjoy it all.
Good picture of your BOO, Barb. Never did get a picture of you with your eyes open. Barb and a few others put their middle fence down and realized that their pumpkin was not down first. Still looks cute no matter how it got down on your banner. Always....your cards or projects are extremely well done!
Love your BOO, Muriel. Thank you for letting us borrow your chairs. I do not think that we could have stood up doing this one. I think that I will vote you "The Most Improved". Well DONE!! I should have had a picture of Vicki with her BOO. You both may have tied for that honor.
I know that you had fun, Dinah. It was so obvious. So glad that you were able to join us. Good JOB!!
I am always impressed with your end product. Especially because we do not always have the pleasure of your presence in the class. Busy Lady!!
What a great time you had, Miss Penny! I see your pumpkin got put outside its fence as well. Don't feel bad for a misdirected pumpkin folks.....this cute lady spends part of her time in Pagosa Springs and the rest of her time in St. Croix. We miss her when she is not here. So, for someone who has not done that many things with me....WOW!!
My special friend, Betty, holding her beautiful BOO! I thank all of the ladies who placed their faith in me to be able to walk them through their process. At times, I am sure, you felt like you were walking blindly through it but you know....each of your BOO's are uniquely yours and that is the way I like your cards or things that you make in my classes to be. GREAT JOB LADIES!! See you on Tuesday or Saturday.
P. S. Thank you Frances and to your wonderful husband, Sam, for the use of your tables. We interrupted Sam's day twice with the tables being transported. I also have to thank my husband for putting up with my HOBBY. You are a GEM!!
