I've been following Eddie's blog ever since I started blogging (january 2009) and was thrilled for the opportunity to attend one of his workshops. There's not many people or events that I would drive across town through freezing rain and snow for but Eddie's one of them. To give you an idea of the weather that day, check out pics from the only 2 beings in Kansas City that are still excited about snow after the longest Winter on record-
Yikes! Back to the fun stuff. Here are some snapshots of the workshop.
Turned into this-
A bit blurry but still cute
Inspired by Eddie, I grabbed a vintage cake stand that had belonged to my mom-
a smaller dollar store candle holder and some wine corks-
but the soft green color didn't work in our dining room, so I swapped out a candle from our great room -
I can't wait to play around with some more looks. I absolutly love my monogrammed hurricane and look forward to apply the etching technique that Eddie taught me on many more future glasses/vases/candleholders.
Has anyone attended one of Eddie's workshops? What did you learn? Has anyone used the etching creme and created your own personalized item? Please share with us.
TGIAF! love, S
