Christmas in July Workshop

There was a great turnout of 28 members for Beth McIlraith's ornament-making workshop this past weekend. Participants made book oriented circle ornaments as well as little star books that can be tied and hung as an ornament. 

These little ornaments and books were not made using typical Christmas icons. The pictures and text came from the text blocks that Beth does not use when making her Second Chance journals. 

The ornament structures are made from unused papers from her journals. Both of the structures are small enough to collapse and enclose with cards. She also brought pages from books by Beatrix Potter, and other books such as Winnie the Pooh, that were destined for recycling.

Thank you to Beth for her creative workshop and Dolores for providing the photographs.
