Hi everyone!  I had the distinct pleasure of being invited to be a guest teacher at FOR KEEPS SAKE in St. Louis, Missouri this past weekend!
This is on the wall of their classroom area...very fitting!

When you walk into the store, you totally understand how their "motto" is so appropriate!  They have a little bit of everything!  The girls of For Keeps Sake are a warm, wonderful bunch of talented ladies.  A huge shout out and THANK YOU to staff and owners: Missy, Sue, Amy, Nancy, Nancy and Timi!!!  Thank you for making my first teaching experience at For Keeps Sake so FANTASTIC and memorable for me! 

The Saturday group did the Configuration of Your Imagination Vintage Bird Box.
Most of the ladies who enrolled for class said that they had never done anything like this before.  We jumped right in and we played...and we played...
And before you knew it ....
the ladies had created beautiful Vintage Bird Boxes that they were so proud of.  A few of the ladies taking the class were "speedsters" and finished ahead of the pack.  They missed out on the class photo!

On Sunday, we created The Vintage Bunny Box.  I commented after we got started that some of the ladies in this class work like I often find myself doing....standing up!
Everyone was really concentrating on sculpting their little bunny faces!
 As Elmer Fudd would say, "It got "vewwy   vewwy  quiet!"
Once the faces were made, we moved on to the hats and ears.
In about three and a half hours' time ... Whalaa!!!
We've got BUNNIES!!!
Not all of the bunnies made the "lineup" because their "mommies" were shopping, but we lined up the bunnies that were left.  Are they not just adorable?!

I want to say a HUGE "thank you!" to all the ladies who took my classes!  They totally rocked the projects and I could not believe how quickly the time FLEW by!
