Handwired Birdcage Workshop Photos

{Class Kit}
 I always love having workshops at Andrea Villareals home. Andrea is about as close as you can get to a real life Martha Stewart. If you don't believe me, take a look at this lunch layout for class:

{yes that is an Oreo hiding in that fresh baked chocolate chip cookie!}
Okay, enough said, Andrea has it going on in the food department!

{Here she is the hostess Andrea, please check out her blog The Freckled Star, I only wish I could write as funny as Andrea does}

{I always bring my huge stash, that way everyone gets to make their own style and themed project}

{Elaine took one look at my ballerina sample and knew that's what she wanted to do}

{Tashias in progress}


{Terry works intently}

{although we all laughed and had a good time, there was a lot of silence as we were all concentrating very hard on our creations}

{Elaine, deep in thought}


Below are the finished projects, I just love how everyones looks like their own personal style!


{Susan Shintakus}

{Tashia Jacques}

{Damn this was the only one I got of Terry Frias' and its blurry. it was awesome though! Especially after she added her bird with rhinestones dripping off its swing!}

{Mine I made during class}

{Miss Amys}

{Okay so maybe I am partial to my gracious hostess but I just loved how Andreas came out!}
The workshop was a lot of fun, thank you to all the ladies who joined in today,it was so much fun, and as always I am inspired by your designs.
-So what's next?????? Not sure yet but stay tuned for our next workshop!
