Creativity Abounds at the Barn!

Sunday I was lucky to take a soldering class with my friend Bonnie at La Maison Rustique in Temecula. If you haven't been, you MUST go to shop and now to attend an art class.

The first class was done by Rita and she lead us in a soldering class of making a glass tube writing pen right from the pages of Sally Jean's Soldering book.

Of course, I was so busy trying to solder that I didn't get many pictures but I point you to a couple blogs that did. Breathing Beside Us and La Maison Rustique and Rita's blog.

Here's my pen which turned out beautifully.

Great first project. Rita and her husband even provided yummy rasberry lemonade and champagne and warm and soothing onion soup.

Hmmmmm creative women, champagne, food, shopping what more could a girl ask for?

I just love the pen you made! I can see Tamerie in the background there. I wish you were there with us. It definitely was the break I needed!
