Women are the primary resource of the planet. They give birth, we come from them. They are mothers, they are visionaries, they are the future. If we can figure out how to make women feel safe and honor women, it would be parallel or equal to honoring life itself."

Wintry Workshop Day Three

"The rehearsals of milky November...
the clairvoyance of snow." - Patricia Hampl

At dawn, I prepared the studio for the girls.

Once they arrived, we discussed our projects for the day while sipping hot cocoa from thrifted red mugs.


















One project for the day was a Snow flurry mobile. My son and I make paper snowflakes each winter...we make garlands, mobiles and even starch them to our windows. When I saw this mobile in Gifted Magazine, I just had to share the love of paper flurries with the Mighty Girls.























They got right to work and snipped...


















and snipped...








































Then they stitched...
























and stitched...























and stitched the snowflakes into strands to hang from their branches!



We also made hand decorated mugs! I first learned of this technique when my favorite designer, Lotta Jansdotter shared it at Pebeo. Since then, it has popped up nearly everywhere....like here, here, and here. These amazing pens can be used on all sorts of pottery and is permanent once baked. The pens were donated by the generous people of Marker Supply!


















They were all so imaginative and reflected the personality of each girl. One of them fashioned her mug after a Lotta Jansdotter design.



We ended the morning with our wintry tradition of S'mores...




while I swept up the blizzard in the studio.
