The Muses Delve into Papier Mache

Theresa's Cottage

 Rose's Cottage

 Barb's Cottage

The Back of Theresa's Cottage - so cute!
Two weeks ago the "Muses" delved into papier mache - literally! A real mess but lots of fun. We covered baskets with papier mache and made them into imaginative little houses to be homes for pointsettia pots for Christmas. Today we painted them with acrylics and they are so cute. I had to show the back of Theresa's (below) because her snowman was so cute!

They are so lovely! The "Muses" certainly are creative!

What a fabulous idea! I haven't done papier mache in years. Each cottage is just exquisite and I have to admit that the snowman is darling.

Thanks, Christiane! We "Muses" are old friends who enjoy doing creative things together - sometimes they turn out - sometimes they don't. This is good therapy for all of us.

Thanks, Sherry! Yes - the snowman is wonderful - my favorite part of the whole creative day. Theresa is a very creative person. All the Muses are creative, and we love being together.
