Sweetness

Vintage lace calls my name more days than not.
Scraps of pages from a miniature book.
Wrap recycled sari silk ribbon tightly around metal oxidized with a small
micro torch.
Letters stamp out words of endearment.
Wire on so called tiny "nestie".
Final attachment:
sisters of the family kind encased in resin,
forever sealed in a vintage watch case.
Viola! 
A class is born.

Just love your new class, Diane!! Every element, every special element, is classic YOU and so endearing. This class looks like it will be full of wonderful techniques. And best of all, it looks like there will be lots of room for personalization - from stamping sentiments to including treasured family photos. This class will surely be a hit!
