Saturdays class

Yesterday I was able to take a class with Mike & Lesley (Jack and Cat Curio) at a newly opened Mixed Media/scrapbook store in Chandler, Craftfusion. Charmaine is a sweet lovely lady and makes all of her customers feel so special. It is remarkable in this financial climate that she jumped in with both feet to realize her dream. Love her store. It is bright and cheerful and has a wonderful classroom. Plus it is really really close to my house which could be trouble! If you have the opportunity pop in and say Hi!
I took the "The Invention � Steampunk Debutante & Altered Cigar Box" yesterday. It was a full day of painting, staining, learning lots of new things with modeling paste, alcohol inks and getting really grubby. My fingers still have evidence of black Staz on, black alcohol ink, white and turquoise paint as well as brown stain. Love it. I really really had a great time and love my altered cigar box. Charmaine even served us lunch. Pizza and paint yum!!!
