All in one weekend:)
Friday night I headed to Williams Sonoma for a demo and book signing with Jennifer Shea. She is the owner of Trophy Cupcakes in Seattle and the author of Cupackes & Parties!
She was so nice and even took a picture with us which is usually frowned upon! Ahem Ina Garten.....
Great demo on frosting! 3 ways I never even thought of before! Sanding sugar is now a new favorite:)
And the buttercream.............AWESOME!!
Now I just need an occasion lol!!
Might be making it's way into our family Easter Brunch menu on Sunday:)
Saturday bright and early I got on the freeway to go to Madam Palooza Emporium in Murrieta.
Just a few pics of her studio. She rents out props for all occasions, most with a lovely vintage flair I adore!!
I can't even properly tell you how much I LOVE this chaise!! Had it been for sale I would have shoved it in my Explorer;)
2 classes that day. The first was a mixed media canvas with my friend and first time teacher Julie Weller.
Loved this project! The kit was fab which is always the key to my heart:) Wire, nails and rusty old door pulls. Swoon!!
I did use a tin type I had brought. It fit just right in the nest.........
After that I had class with Rita Reade of Mammabellarte. It was a little ballerina in a "soldered" box. No real soldering but made to look like it with copper tape and patina. I had to rush out to get home for the littlest's prom but not before I won an extra kit!!
This one has a little heart in her hand:)
Finished them up last night while I waited for Tyler to get home...........
Seriously where does the time go...........sniff sniff
And when was the last time I was up past midnight??!!
Must have been my feeling of bittersweetness and lack of sleep because I decided right then and there I would give this one away, I mean I did win the kit so why not share the love:)
Leave a comment on this post about your favorite part of Spring or anything else you'd like to say, like if you know where the time goes..........;)
I'll pick a winner Friday.
Have a wonderful week:)
