Painted pot picks & pumpkins

I have been so busy finishing the classes for the kids at school and getting ready for summer classes at the library and camp. I am teaching a class on making plant markers from broken terracotta pots and have the samples done. They are so quick and easy and fun! The twisted wire accents and glass bugs just make them a whole lot more interesting. We have so many new plants at the library and in my garden that I will need a large pile of broken pots just for that.

This on the heels of teaching a pumpkin painting class for Sheryl's '56ers so they can do a fundraiser for breast cancer treatments. Here are a couple that I did for the club to use. I was so impressed with myself to get the puffy lips right!
