|Work and Creation.|
|Some great work.|
Lunch was so convenient with Tim Horton's right across the road and a sushi place around the corner!
One of our number had wanted to take this workshop for years and kept missing it for one reason or another but I was so pleased when she walked in the door. She had brought with her a jacket she had been working on but had ground to a halt with no inspiration for what buttons to use. Well...beautiful set of eight was created! Half with a red base and half with a black base...don't they look great?!
|A great match!|
|Stylish but inexpensive!|
Someone asked me about something that led me to talk about my bedroom curtain rods. Back when I was putting up the curtains on the three windows there I looked at rods and finials...however it would have cost me $$$ I didn't want to spend. My solution....curtain rods from Kmart or Zellers, two to a pack, Anthracite coloured Fimo and a matching colour auto paint from Canadian Tire.
I took apart the rods, plying off the knobs on each end and building the finials, six different ones, on those with the polymer clay. While I did that I hung the rods out in the driveway and spray painted them with the auto paint. When the finials are baked I stuck them back on the rods and ... voila... chic curtain rods that have been there for years...through two sets of curtains!
