boutique class at carol wingert's


Last Saturday, during my very rainy week in Phoenix, the sun shone brightly on the one day that mattered, Carol's all-day Heirloom Book class held in her back yard. Her first boutique event included all our supplies to make a springtime-inspired canvas book filled with vintage laces and buttons, flower-making techniques, and fabric transfers, with even more supplies presented in a white enamel lunch box to add to the surprise. Heather of Speckled Egg also gifted us with petite flowers for our books.

The lovely creative day included a leisurely lunch in her garden and home-baked goodies throughout the day. Below is one of my page spreads made in class Saturday. Carol's next boutique Heirloom Book event will be held in June. She will be announcing details and registration on her blog, so if you're interested in attending, keep checking there. :)

That is just beautiful! What a treat to sit in Carol Wingert's garden and take a class.

I am off to Phoenix in less than a week and plan on getting together with Miss Maija for lunch and a class from Trish, who was also at Silver Bella.

This gives me a better idea of what you like to work with!
