Students With Skillz

And, yes, that’s skillz with a Z.

Check out the  gorgeous bow bracelet one of my students made! Isn’t it adorable? She made it out of an old purse with a little help from a YouTube tutorial. I’m in love with how it looks, SUCH a pretty piece! Next time I have an old piece of leather (or faux leather!) lying around, this will be my model!

She did such a good job with the finishing/closure- it looks professionally made, doesn’t it? 

Now check out the insanely delicious “Cauldron Cake my student made (inspired by the descriptive goodness of J.K. Rowling – Harry Potter, for those of you who may not be aware) . . . I can personally attest to the fact that these tasted as INSANELY good as they look! They are also getting added to my things-to-bake bucket list (my Oven List?)!

My final share of the week? Check out one student’s wonderful (and on-topic!) sense of humor!

Un béguin (as we learned this week) is another word for a crush (as in: Young girls often had a crush on Jonathon Taylor-Thomas during the 1980s and 90s.)

Dabbling in decoratives is an ongoing obsession. I love having a go at This, That and the Other. . . tackling projects that tickle my fancy, hoarding costumes (for the "Someday" that I own a dress-up tea-house for grown-ups) and hosting themed parties whenever I am not immersed in teaching French and Writing to high school students. In the interest of full transparency, there's something serious you should know: I overuse the ellipsis . . . frequently. Embarassingly enough, it seems to be the punctuation that best captures my stream of thought as it flits off of one subject and towards the next!
