Since you asked:

"Therefore, to be possess'd with double pomp, to guard a title that was rich before, to gild refined gold, to paint the lily,
to throw a perfume on the violet, to smooth the ice, or add another hue unto the rainbow, or with taper-light
to seek the beauteous eye of heaven to garnish, is wasteful and ridiculous excess."

~William Shakespeare,
ca. 1595

Yup, that's us.

Les Petite Cadeaux with Priscela

Wednesday found us gathered around the table again, this time in the delightful company of paper artist Priscela Magdaleno, who brought us a class on creating adorable gift boxes with art papers, crepe, scrap and more. Priscela's easygoing manner and teaching style made her class an immediate hit...

Following are some the creations from class: Everyone chose their own theme, from sweet little pastel confections to Christmas themed boxes topped with tiny bristlecone trees and trims...

Tiny little forget-me-nots nestled inside ruffled crepe roses on this pale lavender box...

Here's Dede and Robbin, fresh off their inaugural Artist's Studio retreat, relaxing with a little paper play....


Nancy DeLine's holiday themed box in progress....


An austere yet sweet creation from the hands of Dede, all in black and white...

We're trying to schedule a couple of more classes with this talented artist, both of them holiday themed. Priscela is transitioning to a new home, so we will keep our fingers crossed that we can tempt her back again soon!

I just loved this fun and easy class. What better way to kick off the holiday season than creating little gifts for others. I lvoe all the great work that came out of this class.
