Yesterday Jordan led us through making paper succulents and roses. We were all pretty impressed with our results, and are all busy figuring out our ‘shortcuts’ for the next time we have to cut 40 plus pieces of paper out!
The neat thing too is that you’re not restricted to the standard greens, browns, etc. of the ‘real dea.’ If you like purple and blue, or green and orange succulents, we all felt pretty much encouraged to go for it!
We all loved this aeonium in blues done by Audrey. Jordan on the left.
We hope to offer this class again so keep an eye on the schedule for news.
Trunk Shows and Events:
Sept 18 is North Texas Giving Day. However, we already decided last month to dedicate 5% of our profits to a different charity each month. August sales resulted in a gift to Doctors without Borders, who are working tirelessly to stem the Ebola epidemic in West Africa.
This months’ donation will go to the Reverse Food Truck, a new concept run out of the Northpark Presbyterian Church, which collects food for the needy, instead of serving it to those of us who might, um, have had enough already.
