I hope everyone is having a great weekend! The Syracuse area has been blessed with lots of sunshine and decent temperatures, so the yard work is in full force. We have very large trees in our yard, so we have had a blanket of leaves covering the grass everyday. We rake and then the next day, it looks like we never raked the day before-it's crazy! And frustrating. And we may get in trouble for all of the leaf piles taking up half the road in front of our house.
And last week, Bryan had to do a big project on his family origins. Each night last week, we worked on it a little at a time and he had to write a summary about his family. I gave him some information and would talk it over with him, then he had to write it in an essay. I told him Pete's Grandfather came from Ireland for a better way of life and that he still has relatives living there. The sentence that Bryan wrote was: He came over to America from Ireland to find better relatives. LOL...I laughed so hard.
This week-I have a Live with Prima class scheduled on Thursday, November 18th on ustream.com at 9:30pm EST. I will be making a Paper Wreath and I will also show two other examples of wreaths made from different Prima products. They are all easy to recreate and they will make amazing gifts too. The show takes place on the Prima channel on ustream where we have lots of Prima classes we have broadcasted before. There are so many amazing classes on there fill with techniques and project ideas. See the link below.
Here is the paper wreath. It looks like a lot of work, but it really is easy. I will give you all of the instructions on how to make one, all of the supplies and cool techniques that you can use on many other projects as well.
This wreath is so pretty and so simple. There are lights incorporated within the flowers and it looks so elegant when it is lit up. I will show you the base I used and some important tips using the lights and flowers.
The third is a spray wreath made from vines. I bought the base at a local craft store and then embellished with Prima leaves and Gold flowers. There are many tips and techniques included in this class along with the assembly of leaves in the center.
The class is taking place on November 18th at 9:30pm EST. It will last about and hour to an hour and a half. It is going to take place "Live"-I will be broadcasting from my home and I can answer questions during the show. There will be moderators on the chat to help answer any questions you may have about the products used for the projects.
