I'm Having Fun on Sunday!

Come join me at SmittenDust Studio in Dimondale to learn about making your own journal--COOL! Smitten-Style Journal with Dusty DeHaven.  $45.00 fee includes supplies but I'm bringing my own personal favorite glue stick!  There are still spaces available--go to smittendust.blogspot.com for information.
"My journals do not hold secrets.  They are a roadmap from the rearview mirror."  A little acrylic paint, stencils, embellishments and you’ll be ready to add adventures into this beautiful journal.  Cost includes journal and use of stencils, paint, embellishments.  Sounds like loads of fun to me!

Make an Eco-Bag on October 13th!

I enjoyed a wonderful class at the Ludington Area Center for the Arts yesterday afternoon!  I taught a session on using recycled and repurposed materials to make a bag/tote/purse--what a blast!  We looked at Tarn (T-shirt yarn) and Plarn (plastic bag yarn) and numerous possibilities for using upcycled fabric and yarn too. The creative possibilities were flowing! Many thanks to LACA for inviting me to teach--they are a gracious host!
