Craft Center Activities

Almost forgot to post the activity presented by the Houston Metal Arts Guild at the Center for Contemporary Craft this month. It was a very chilly day and in the middle of the holiday shopping frenzy but we all had a great time making ornaments.

From Miscellaneous

Above are my attempts. I did work on them rather quickly but they still turned out kind of cute. It’s amazing the number of things that can be created with metal foil. Remember last year we made those wonderful brooches; now, these ornaments. I need to think what other things can be created with embossed foil.

Great Weekend Coming Up

Need to finish your holiday shopping or just looking to treat yourself? This is the weekend to do it.

On Friday (Dec 13th) there will be a small group of us joining an office party celebration.
