Magpie Magic!

We had such a fun magpie nest making class the other day…lots of beads & bottle caps, berries & buttons, bits of ribbon & yarn…just a little reminder that making art is ‘spozed to be FUN and use materials you have around the house and make you SMILE. We certainly smile a lot at the Creative Cottage and have lots of fun–why don’t you make us part of your summer stay-cation plans! See the list of my classes under the Kaitlin’s Creative Cottage banner above and call me to reserve a seat! Happy Day to all my magpie friends!

@@ What kewl things happen at Kaitlin’s Creative Cottage!

Look what Berta brought (and finished) at a Friday, Creative Play Day–a dragonfly mirror! She is getting ready for an Arts and Crafts Fair in Picture Rocks, AZ on Saturday, April 14th! The charcoal colored area will be replaced with a mirror but I couldn’t photograph it so I turned it over. Berta’s ceramic items were so popular that she sold several items at The Cottage while she was working on them! Now she has to create more beautiful art!

Why not join her and the other arty dames on Fridays from 10 to noon to share the fun!
