LONG DAY WEDNESDAY...

But was it ever a "fun" day. We were busy in the store (that is always fun) and had our second "Snow Globe" class Wednesday evening. Very creative bunch of gals...the best part of the class (after listening to all the moans and groans and the uncertainty that they can actually"do this") - is to see their faces at the very end when they add the mica snow to the jar - throw in the pom-pom snowballs - and it comes to life...."in the attic we can build a snowman"....smiling faces...proud faces...relieved faces...LOL!! After tying on a repro "tinsel" ribbon around the jar and adding the tag they hand stamp, it is time to decorate the sacks they will take the jar home in....AND now the pressure is off and some of these gals get so creative decorating their sacks...of course we are using MORE GLITTER !!! I am so glad we decided to have classes in the attic - this is a fun way to spend quality time with your peers. I left the camera at the store but will post pictures in my Picture Trail.
Sharon, my helpmate giving the classes, made new items and brought them with her....she never ceases to amaze me how much she can get done in a few days. Most of it sold right from the counter before it can even be displayed today. Mice....??? What is it with MICE ??? Anything with a mouse disappears quickly....!!! Somebody explain?? Seems that crows are "out" and mice are "in" !!!
It is very cold here in PA and it will take me awhile to adjust....it is suppose to be cold but I am never prepared for the sudden change in the weather...70 degrees last Saturday....28 degrees yesterday ??? I am off to the store early to clean up the mess of last night as we have another class Saturday - Yo-Yo Candle Mat - Sharon teaches this as I have never made a yo-yo in my life, so I will just do the prep work. Hope everyone has a great day today.
