Sea Glass and Wire Wrapped Jewelry Class

Sea Glass and Wire Wrapped Jewelry Alert!

I just finished putting kits together for my sold out class at San Luis Obispo Adult Education on Monday.  Not to worry, if you'd like to take the exciting and easy class I'm offering another one in July but it's filling up fast!

Gumdrop Roses

Who knew you could make beautiful roses from gumdrops?  I posted that same question on Facebook and a friend replied, why not?  If you can make roses out of bread and glue...these are so fun and easy to make.  This is only half of the dessert I'm making for my garden group gathering tomorrow.  We're making Mosaic Rocks with Heidi Borchers and I thought we needed some garden themed refreshments.  Back to the dessert.  The roses are placed in a chocolate chip cookie pot filled with Nutella with cookie crumbs over it to look like soil.  On to making hand squeezed lemonade.

I went to get fingerprinted today for teaching through adult ed and the county office has their logo in a mosaic at the entry.  Cool!

BTW, come to find out, I have no fingerprints or 'swirlies' so it means I'll probably be questioned.  I'm hoping my secret clearance with the government (I used to handle classified data for rocket launches) or working for the IRS helps me out.  Yes, this girl has had many lives...

Succulent Wedding Boutonnieres and Bouquet

I loved making the boutonni√®res, bouquets and corsages from succulents for this beautiful couple!   Best part about using succulents is the bridal party has lasting memories of the special day when they plant them.
