Holiday Shadow Box Workshop

Pin It We had a great time this afternoon at our Holiday Shadow Box Workshop. Tina Haller, from My Favorite Things, was our teacher here in my home in Roseville. She was fantastic!!!
She is pretty well versed in all things creative having so many workshops out of her store in Nevada City, My Favorite Things. She will be doing workshops here in Roseville throughout the seasons...this was our first.  Of the options we had to choose from for this session, we all chose to make clay shadow boxes with personalized touches, perfect for gift giving season.
Tori decided to join the class
Some of us also brought bottles and learned a technique decorating bottles. Each of us brought our own things to embellish our boxes and bottles - jewels, trims, pictures - Kathleen even brought some faux snow!
Randys Bottle with her own embellishment
Throughout the teaching, we had food prepared by my husband Mark - sugar cookies, a nice salad, and potato pizza.  For desert, we had cranberry pie!
 Tina and Kathleen ready to bake.

 Here are a few pictures of the finished products.  One of the best things about having these workshops, is that you take the time to do the projects with friends.  Plus, Tina and the other students have such fantastic ideas that we all learn from each other during the process.  With glue guns, paints, scissors, ribbon and loads of embellishments from Tina to choose from, its easy to be creative and share in the experience with others.  


We decided that our next workshop will be Saturday, February 2nd from 11-4 here in Roseville again.
Tina will be developing the sample of what we will be creating but it will be just in time for Valentines Day - save the date!
Thanks to our wonderful students, Kerry, Kathleen, Mona, Randy, Annette, Bridgette and Tori!!!

And Thanks to our wonderful Teacher, Tina!!!

Merry Christmas!!!
