More “Fassetts” of My Life

This has been a really nice week for my budding little business venture. I’ve had some new students, and some old friends, and sometimes both together, which is REALLY fun.

This week’s Diva Challenge was a Use My Tangle (UMT) from Lynn Mead, CZT, from Washington State. Her tangle, Fassett, is really quite cool, and you can do so much with it. I taught it in my class this week on Black Tiles (Beyond the Basics: Black Tiles) and we had some fun with it in gold Gelly Roll Metallics.

Diva #262

We had a really fun class last Saturday, with Nancy Dawes and her family visiting from Vancouver Island. Everyone folded and worked on their origami.

Nancy caught me in action!


And she posted her finished ball on her FaceBook page (Crafting Passions.) You can also check out her blog here – She does some awesome things!


I finished the one I started in class too, but only just this morning!

Jump #2

I tend to get a bit…carried away. I like to say I never do anything half-assed…I do it full assed! The scattered gold pebbles in my Tipple are reminiscent of the beach sand by the Hotel Del Coronado, which we visited on Monday with our guests!

Twink Sand

So pretty!

ok…I have a million loads of laundry to finish, journals to work on, quilts to cut bits for…I know…get back to work! Next week, look for journal pics. I am really excited to finally be putting my “stash” to use (thanks for the push into the glue, Nancy!)

Stay Crazy My Friends!

  1. Thank you Char! We had a lovely visit – the walk on the gold shimmery beach was the best!
    Loved making the origami Zentangled Jump ball in class with my daughter and husband. I’ve got one more to make thanks to the extra paper you gave me. See you later this month! NancyD

  2. Love the orgami / Zentangle class outcomes, gorgeous work, the great paper and muted colors really add to the final, fabulous pieces. I look forward to trying one of these jump balls. Your tile is beautiful and so reminiscent of the sparkling sand, love your full-arse style!

  3. Like the metallic gold. I have not used a lot of gold in anything. Will have to look at copper or gold if I start doing gems. Do you have instructions, or a link to get them for that ball. Looks like 6 tiles and can see the arc fold but curious about how they are put together.
