Glitter, Glue and a Friend or Two

When it gets cold, the Flower has to play inside.

So I invite friends over to make things.

This weekend, a group of creative folks decorated all sorts of things with napkins.

I have a napkin collection you see.  I search far and wide for beautiful napkins.

My friends do, too.  Then we get together and share our paper treasures.

We sit around a big table covered with supplies: ModPodge glue,  glitter, scissors, sponge brushes and paper plates to work on.

We peel napkins down to one ply, cut them in sections

and glue them onto anything we care to embelish.

There was a wide assortment of objects.

There was also some new talent at the table.

I always enjoy watching other artist at work.

I learn something new every time I have a “workshop.”

It’s a cheap thrill.

“He is the richest man, who has the cheapest treasures.”

I love my napkin collection, but my friends are my treasures.

  1. Beautiful art, lovely idea. Great share! I’ve had these beautiful napkins tha I bought in Japan over 25 years ago and just couldnt bring myself to use them because they were so pretty, now I have some ideas for what to do them that are not food-related 😊
