Vintage2Glam is my idea of reusing vintage goodies, and turning them into something Glam. I love taking vintage finds, and make them modern with wonderful colors and a vintage twist..... love to incorporate them into my own vintage inspired art an accessories. Pleased to say that my jewelry was worn my Ellen Burstyn in the movie "GRETA" starring Ellen and Hillary Duff filmed in historical town of Ocean Grove N.J.

Teen Book Workshop Old Bridge Public Library

A few weeks back I had the pleasure to teach a workshop for the teens in our township at 
I was HAPPY that it was a full class and the teens came ready to create...

 I set up my samples

 I shared with the students how to fold and create interesting sculptures from the books.
Happy that the library had so many interesting books to share with us. Love teaching this class and recycling books into these interesting forms.

once I finished sharing the skills they needed, loved seeing the students getting creative.....

 now time to some show off what they created......


love that they follow directions so well and then take it and put their own spin on it to make their book art truly unique....

so glad I brought the pom poms.....

 I was teaching a 
 I set up the room with help from my dear Mary, and displayed all my samples and all the tools needed to get creative in card making... 

  Once class started we all introduced ourselves and it's amazing how many people LOVE to get creative!!! Everyone had a different background and profession but all had the love to create, and were eager to LEARN!
  I shared as much information about all the tools that one can use in the
 craft of card making and then I love this part 
I let them go! and let get creative with the skills I just taught.

for the love of violets......

I have 2 violets in our home and I guess they are loving their spot......

they surprise me and keep  blooming away....

they are on a table with a lace curtain as the back drop

which must filter the light in the perfect way...

I tried for years to help this little one....the stem has grown so weird and way to the side of the pot.... it just couldn't be fixed....I even propped it up with a paper towel pillow to help hold it upright....I was about to dump it and said let's just see!!! and look at this....even though a bit on the weird  side it keeps on HAPPY I kept her cause she really is a BEAUTY!
