Each year I try and offer a 3D class and this year it was the Advent Calendar. We had fun making these keepsakes at my class earlier in the month.
My friend, Liane Binder, also offers a class to her customers and this year she made this adorable set of Christmas themed houses. Just perfect for the mantle!
The house are wood - you paint them and then decorate them with embellishments.
Yesterday we got together to stamp and she make my Advent and I made her houses. I LOVE them so much. In my entrance hall I have a plate ledge and they are proudly displayed there so when you walk in the house you can see them. I'll be sad when Christmas is over and I have to take them down.
If you'd like to make the Village I know that Liane has some openings in her class on November 26th at her studio in North Delta. The cost for all three (all materials are provided) is $35 - what a deal! If you'd like to attend you can email Liane - just let her know I sent you.
Now I'm going to have to make some summer cottages to replace these for the next season!
