Women Connecting: "It's All About Copper"

Women Connecting: "It's All About Copper"

Once a Term, I have the privilege of teaching at our local Church, Richmond Church Of Christ.

The project that I taught, I called "It's All About Copper"
The First Half Year Plan said:
"It's All About Copper" - we will be giving it justice!
I taught a cute Calendar and Notebook, with matching Copper Pen.
As an added bonus we were using the "Detailed Dragonflies".

I always check the timing on my Class, as there is never enough time for the 35 ladies to cut both Dragonflies, so in advance I pre-cut and popped all the little itty bity scraps {sorry Wayne} of the more detailed Dragonfly.

When I teach, I like to set the scene, and I make the presentation and display, as shabby chic as I can make it!
I took a wooden display stand in the car with me, along with my Vintage Stratton Compacts and other delicate ornaments, and would you believe I broke a crystal ornament !!! ... Damn it!!!

The Copper Dragonflies consisted of using school book covering in Copper {thanks K-Mart}, and adhering it to the "Smokey Slate" Cardstock.

The Calendars were a bit tricky to get a hold of at this time of the year.
I ended up purchasing via EBay UK, however the freight ended up being $40!!!
We will definitely be ordering as soon as the 2019 Calendars are printed, as the cost was waaaaay horrendous!!!

I also made a masculine Calendar for my Dad' birthday, which he loves!
I took design inspiration from a card I case'd by Narelle Farrugia  

If you are interested in coming to Women Connecting, we meet the 1st, 3rd and 5th Monday of the month, and you can check out our Facebook page
