Treasure Charm Bracelet ~ Class
Saturday April 17, 2010
Garden of Beaden

Instructor ~ Robin Dudley-Howes
So..... a couple of weeks ago, my daughter Samantha ~
seemed interested in some sort of ~ jewelry making project.
However, I wanted her to enjoy it so, I asked her
if she wanted to take a class at our local bead shop. And she said "Okay"
I was totally excited but of course I didn't want her
to know that I was. So, we signed up.
My new friend Tara, that I met at a previous
soldering class at Piecemakers the weekend before ~ was also taking the class
with her daughter Ivy.
I shared this with Samantha and she seems further amused.
I wanted to share a snapshot of the day we had together ~ overall
it was really fun ~ we went to lunch together ~ chatted with the instructor and
of course Ivy and Samantha chatted way more about school, friends and other
things ~ then getting the bracelet finished.
In the future ~ when Samantha wants to take a class ~ we'll be
taking a personal and up close class in the garage at home with the dogs.
After instructions from our teacher we were to move forward with the project.
A kit was provide ~ so we didn't need to find objects or a bracelet.
Head is spinning ~ where do I start ~
And Mom ~ why are you already taking pictures?
This is Ivy ~ she's having a wonderful time and she's smiling ~
So, it wasn't that bad as Samantha is making it out to be ~
(Samantha took this picture standing on a chair ~
funny story behind this)
And of course our project ~
Samantha is the top bracelet
I wanted to ensure she had a good experience for all of our sakes
so I made sure we got hers finished before the end of class ~ As for mine
As always ~ I love working and learning new techniques from
my friend and instructor Robin Dudley-Howes ~ and always enjoy spending the day with a room
full of talented artist ~ no matter who they are ~
Thank you for taking the class Samantha and spending the
day with your mom.
