Deb Hodge Beatrix Potter Charming Class and Ornament Swap

Okay, since a picture tells a thousand words I will let these pictures speak for themselves. I was so honored to have the chance to take a class at the home of hostess extraordinaire Kim Caldwell's. Kim's home was so beautifully decorated it just made the whole day. I loved how Kim's home was filled with artful pieces, many of them created by attendees at the days festivities. Our project was for a chandelier, but due to a small incident involving corrosive chemicals, the shades were not available that day. But like my girl Holly says, when life gives you lemons you make art! Instead of making charms to put on my chandelier later, I just made some necklaces. I love how they came out and have been wearing them ever since! We also had a handmade ornament swap and below are the amazing ladies creations. So enjoy!
