A Beautiful Event

I was priveleged to facilitate an extremely beautiful private event - about 40 children attended as well as a large crowd of adults, and the client chose beading and scrapbooking for the activities. The theme was farm/horseriding/gingham/sophisticated country/shabby chic.... and I was able to incorporate all of these elements into the personalised scrapbook by scanning the fabrics that the event designer used, and including these images in the designs I made for the scrapbook.

I also had a beading bar set up using very beautiful silver and bronze beads, crystal beads, and cotton cord to make stunning bracelets. Prior to the event, I had handmade all the crystal charms using all sorts of findings - so that the kids could easily use them on their bracelets.

Party Time

I had a VERY lively group of girls at this birthday party! All 20+ made gorgeous decorative name tags using papers, fabrics, ribbons, flowers, beads, cords, and metal embellishments. Working through the project step by step together with the girls meant that their finished items looked really well made and well put together. The children get to choose all the colours and bits and pieces, and I enjoy watching them working out their individual style as they work through the project with me. As you can see, they all finished up looking very pleased with themselves!
