Let the Fun Begin!!!

Garden Club was a huge success last Saturday.
 The weather could not have been better!

Our fearless leader, Sandra Lee had our wooden angels cut, nailed, and ready to paint.




Karen and Beth got right to it!

First we painted them white... and the warm sun dried them quickly.  Perfect!






Lynda, are you having any fun yet!?!

Next step was to paint over the white with brown paint.Then gently rub it off until you got the look you wanted. Cool!







I think Kim really loved the painting part of the project. Next, we painted pretty little vines and  leaves on the angels wings.





It's always nice when a mother and daughter can spend some time together creating.

Ann and her daughter did just that!


 And here are our heavenly finished
Garden Angels.

We had so much fun... we hope you can join a "Garden Club" class in the near future.

Speaking of new clubs... we want to remind you about a new one we are excited about. It's called "Stash Challenge" 

     Next club is February 28th, Friday, from 10-1. Colleen Loucas will challenge and excite you with great ways to use up your fabric stash. 

     We still have room in the Primitive Seasonal Banner class. This month we are doing the "Bunny". Class is February 24th, Monday from 10-1. Susy Boyer teaches the class.
