fun weekend

this weekend i taught a private jewelry class and then had my friend, jane over. Jane and i spent our late afternoon making a 16 page art journal, a La Teesha Moore. I set up 2 tables in our fireplace room in front of the Christmas tree. We listened to Christmas music and drank eggnog and brandy. now that is the way to do art with a friend! It was really fun and very easy. After making our journals, we got out our collage supplies and started working on some pages. Here are the 2 pages that i started. We stayed up til 1:30am in the morning working on them. Today after showering and getting our acts together we headed out to do some Christmas shopping and hit Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters, TJMaxx and we went to our new Barnes & Nobles. We had a late lunch before saying our goodbyes. it was a nice time.


Earlier in the morning, before Jane arrived, I taught a private jewelry class for my client, Jamie and her daughter, Gabrielle. Jamie booked the time for Gabrielle' s birthday. i had them bring items that they might want to turn into a necklace, taught them wire wrapping, some component soldering and then we set out to trouble shoot how to take their items and turn into a necklace. it was a great time and they both left with finished pieces.


  1. Looks like fun. I too have been playing around with Teesha Moores journal techniques. Great way to recycle magazines.
