Julie Haymaker Class

Today, Julie Haymaker came over and taught us a wonderful class - made of paper clay, wood, fabric and other embellishments. Julie is from New Mexico and was out for just the weekend. Here's Julie's blog: ( . Thank you Diana for arranging this great class. The class included a delicious brunch & lunch. She brought over some amazing scones, chicken salad, croissants, nuts, cookies, drinks - what an amazing spread.

Our good friend Ruby joined us today too - we were really happy to have her create with us! Unfortunately, our other sister, Pat was on a bike ride and couldn't make it.

....and here's our finished girls - oh so sweet! I love how the group of women and girls look together - like going to a black & white party! We learned so many different techniques, & wonderful tips.

It was a great class - what a wonderful way to spend the day.

I also want to post these adorable cake pops Rachel made - they turned out yummy.


  1. What a fun day! Thanks Connie for hosting...the dolls came out great and Rachel's cake pops were delicious! Connie - your home looks amazing and the perfect venue for our art classes.

  2. You all where the best and the dolls came out beyond amazing , maybe it was the backdrop of Connie's home that helped so much as the homes colors just fit the doll class perfectly . It was an honor to be amongst this beautiful group of sisters. Bringing a family together like this is an art form and I commend them all for the work they but in to getting together as a family. This helps so much when you find a common thread like creating to make it happen. Well done lovely ladies keeping going and growing and remember The only thing we have to fear is fear itself !! Oh and Connie thanks for mailing the check I told you I was a bad business woman!!!! TEE HEE

  3. What a fabulous day, amazing teacher, & wonderful project. We all learned so much (& ate so much!!) & can't believe we were taught how to painted such beautiful faces/bodies & make such darling clothes/accessories. Every doll turned out adorable & can't thank Julie, Diana, and Connie enough for making it all happened!!! Many thanks, F
