Tomorrow is Lydia's birthday and she is a gold girl. I rarely make anything with gold but decided since I've never seen her wear silver that now was as good a time as any. I made up some earrings for her birthday using some vintage crystal that I purchased a long time ago at a show that I went to at Alexis Park Hotel here in Vegas. They turned out really nice and when I gave them to her today she really seemed to enjoy them.

This weekend I had the pleasure of taking another paper clay class with Jenny Hernandez a.k.a. the Polka Dot Pixie. I just love her classes. She is always so generous with her time and supplies and no matter what the project everyone's ends up looking very different. My pixie is posted on the Mystic Paper blog. My pixie is going to go in my kitchen as I am in the process of redoing my kitchen in vintage colors of red, green and yellow. The class was held at Mystic Paper in Mesa, AZ so I also got to drive down and visit Mandy. We always have so much fun together. I miss her so much. This time we went to a couple of antique stores and spent the day. We found a lot of treasures and I'm so excited to have some new creations to work on to update the look of my kitchen. More pictures will be coming soon!
