Workshop Goodies...

Hello!

My workshop was today. Everyone seemed pleased with what we made.
They did like the flourish card that I posted for you to see the other day, so good call!


Those of you that have followed me for a while know that when I do a class, all of the participants get a little something that I've made them, just for being there. Here's what they received today...mmm...chocolate!



The image and sentiment are from TAC's new sets: Brighten Your Day & Wonder and Joy. Coloring was all done with Koh-I-Noor Pencils and LOMS.







Speaking of chocolate, DD and I went to a nearby town, Ste. Geneveieve, Mo., last weekend. This quaint little town has an annual 'Chocolate Walk'. You stop at the first store, buy a ticket for $5, and walk all over town. There are approx. 25 shops on the list. Each shop that you visit has chocolate in some form out on a beautiful tray for you to try - everything from truffles to brownies. Very bad timing, as I had just started Weight Watchers! I tried to be a little careful, and we walked for a LONG time, so perhaps I walked off a few of the calories! Anyway, here, for your enjoyment, is a photo of the chocolate covered strawberries that I picked up for DH while there.


Then I came home to beautiful roses that DH had snuck in while we were gone!
Loads of red ones, and one white for each of our wonderful kids - what a keeper my man is!
All righty, off to clean up my messy craft corner! I'll be checking up on your blogs tonight and tomorrow!

Oh what fun - wish I could have been there to "play" with the group but need $$$ to buy "stuff". Super coloring and love the chocolate.

What a yummy treat....very lucky workshop attendees I must say! And that walk sounds great, though it should be a run to burn the calories. I'd still walk though, and eat every last bite!

Hi Patty! What a wonderful gift you give your workshop participates! You are so sweet, I think DH should have been buying the chocolate too! Adorable image a great coloring!

Hey Patty,
I love the card, it is so delicate looking, and simple too.
I wish I could go to one of your workshops...like the way you treat your participants!!!
Yummy for those chocolates...I did not get any, I have told my husband over and over, I don't want any in the house...no temptations for me, now if I go to a store and see something yummy I will get it for myself! The roses are beautiful too! Happy Valentines Day...! (belated of course) TFS.
