Road Trip!!!

Not long ago my newly 18 and adult girlie went on her first road trip...
I wanted to do something special to celebrate this fun and exciting event and decided upon a little scavenger hunt.
I gathered together notebooks, fancy papers, pens, stickers, tape, glue, scissors....
and then I put together a little road trip scavenger hunt!
The idea being that the girls would do the things on their scavenger hunt list and then start to create a journal of their times together.
I got a box and put together a scavenger list for each girlie and the other supplies I had gathered.

I have to say I may have gotten a bit carried away....there are lots of fun scrapbooking/journaling goodies out there!
All packaged up and ready to go I gave it to the girlies just before they got into the car to begin their Road Trip Adventure....

It was so fun when Madison got home to see the photos and share the stories that came about from their Road Trip Scavenger Hunt!

If  you're planning a trip don't forget to make getting there part of the fun!

Craft Classes!

A few weeks ago the craft supplies came out again for Art Time crafting classes!
I made some blank books so we could create Garden Books...

and I drew some images - some coloured and some to be coloured - to use along with fancy papers to decorate the books.  I also printed up garden tips and recipes so that each book could be full of fun Spring projects.
And, look what those crafty kids came up with!

It is always fun to see the creativity blossom.

Every student has his/her own way of being creative - it is very inspiring.

We learned how to make May Day Posies...and I am hoping that come May Day some lucky people find these hanging from their front doors!

Aren't these the cutest little Spring bunnies? Made from cotton balls...this is a project that we used to do with my mom!

And as my dad would say...."A good time was had by all!"

Thanks for coming to class crafters!

Spring Break

It is hard to believe that Spring Break is on it's way out....the time flies when vacation starts.

This vacation there was a lot of costuming to be done for our upcoming La Fille Mal Gardee...
Thanks to one of my sweet friends I have had lots of cups of this lovely tea to enjoy while I sew.
And do you see that puffy sleeve there?  I am proud to say that I taught myself how to make a rolled hem to repair it!
Lots of beautiful things are happening to the costumes....can't wait for you all to see them.  You will be coming to the performance of course...right?

June 15th at what we like to call the New/Old Theatre!  The Merced Theatre!

We are all so excited to be having our performance at this lovely theatre....See you there!
