"Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm."
~Ralph Waldo Emerson~
If I could have bottled up the enthusiasm resonating from the workshop group on Saturday, there would be a long line of people wanting to buy a bottle...guaranteed.
First of all, you can't even say the word "Betwinchie" without smiling.
Then, creating little miniatures usually gets most of us pretty excited...nothing like trial size, right?
Finally, ending up with a very cool, usable project to display or to give as a gift is really the icing on the cupcake!
Apparently Betwinchies are high on the list of Christmas gifts this year. The bigger the canvas, the more the recipient is liked :). Of course, the converse would apply as well.
I kept the group small, which is great for a project that involves spreading around a lot of pieces.
It's always so much fun for me to see creativity unleased among the workshop attendees...totally made me grin to see the direction each person was taking with their boards. I've gotten pictures of completed projects from three of the ladies...they are AWESOME!
Ashley whipped up a fabulous lunch of chicken salad in bibb lettuce bowls, her specialty gourmet mac and cheese, a garden salad, chocolate chip cookies and berries with whipped cream...needless to say, we didn't go hungry.
Be on the lookout for future workshops...never quite sure when one may be announced :).
In the meantime, I made a few extra Betwinchie Canvas Storyboard kits...just in case you're interested. The instructions are designed for people who attended the workshop, but I've got large pictures of the mini squares for you to view. The kit includes the canvas, vintage rusty knob, wood accent pieces, papers and lots of embellishments (more than what's on my actual sample). There's also a beautiful white washed display easel included.
Kits are available for $87, plus shipping. There are just a few available...
