I have been all round the country and back across to the NE since last August. Not much time for my blog I'm afraid which is why I was making Xmas cards every month until then plus a few little presents for friends. My feet have just touched the ground following THE most wonderful weekend in the company of Hels' Warriors from the Frozen North. Hels taught her amazing melt pot techniques to 16/17 of us and we laughed a lot, learnt a lot and then played a lot - I might add though - we never 'played' with the melt pot, we were all very careful and listened to Hels intently. The learning bit was Saturday but Sunday saw us put all that into practice and make a decorated memory box using UTEE and wax. Here is my finished box.
and here is a little twist
Added lights. I have had so much fun making this box and even managed to include some of the things I made years ago at a Suze Weinberg workshop. So much has changed with the melt pot since then and the colours of UTEE now available just blow your mind. Thank you again to Hels for this workshop. I know we all had a ball. Roll on January and the next weekend. Also, HAPPY HALLOWEEN to you all. My Apothecary has taken pride of place in the front window alongside some rather scary skulls and a massive spider. Nightime will see it all come to life - or not!!!LOL
