Snowy Day

It’s a lovely snowy day here in the 1.00 acre wood. I have spent the day making up some samples of the art projects I have planned for the weekend’s Family Saturday at the Carnegie Center for Visual and Performing Arts. The theme this month is “Homemade for the Holidays” so the projects all use recycled and found materials. We will be making shiny ornaments out of old cd’s and dvd’s. We’ll also look at some creative ways to make handmade wrapping paper, bows and gift tags.

Using old magazines, I’ll be showing folks how to make beautiful paper beads to create one of a kind jewelry items for gift giving.

I have also pressed some flowers into service to make some colorful votive candle holders out of recycled jars. The fun will last from 12-5, a little longer this month to coincide with Carnegie’s holiday craft sale. I hope you can stop by and try your hand at some of this month’s exciting projects!!
