In just a few weeks now Nancy and I will head out on a California road trip as we make our way north to the charming, little town of Danville. We're going for Tinsel and Treasures, Iva's Folk Art Show that's in it's 4th year.
I've been gathering the elements for the three Make and Take projects I'll be teaching while we are there. It's been fun to pull out old papers, dig through boxes of black and white photographs, and rummage through baskets full of lace and trims.
I think in addition to the kits I'll let everyone pick out their favorite elements to work with. It's always fun to get a nice kit (and they will) but it can be even more fun to choose our favorite things and add those to our projects as well.
I'm heading out back now to start recycling the big bag of library books I picked up this weekend. The only way I can help everyone get a book together quickly is to do much of the prep work now. I don't mind... but I'm open for helpers if you'll work for sangria and grilled chicken salad!
