Creative Mixed Media Workhops In Frederick, Maryland

Little Books, Sea Glass and Soldered Pendants:  A Weekend Workshop Intensive

I am so excited to be teaching a few of my workshops in Frederick, Md in August!!  This is in my own back yard, and also right in the middle of a little bit of civil war surround.  The country side is beautiful, with the rolling hills and fresh breeze.  The estate where I get to teach dates to the civil war where an observation post was held.  It is a place now called Cricket Manor, owned by friend and art sister, Deborah Gemmill.  Check out this fabulous retreat estate on FB at 
Cricket Manor 

I will be teaching the following workshops at Cricket Manor, listed below.  If you are interested in attending any one of them, or all three, please contact Deb via email at
or call 717-418-3379 for more information!

Hail To An AMAZING Queen

Presenting an AMAZING Tiara To Inspire!

Lynne Suprock here feeling pretty terrific that I have been welcomed into the fold here at Amazing Crafting Products. The design team is so creative and kind. It will be a pleasure designing and teaching with them, using the Amazing Mold Putty, Amazing Casting Resin, and all the other fabulous products.

My business is called Simply Pretty Stuff and I teach creative mixed media workshops around the country. I love to design and prototype and never tire of seeing my things on the pages of magazines such as Belle Armoire, Jewelry Affaire and Just Steampunk. I am honored and humbled to be able to do these things. It is through art that I hope to now make a difference in my life and in the lives of others. I have met so many remarkable people and made good friends while on this path.  It has truly been life changing.

OK, introductions aside, I just wanted to share this terrific idea for a tiara piece! As an instructor, I love teaching my tiara workshops. One of the things that I am always trying to improve with tiara design is the "wearer friendly" part of it. Unless they are wires adorned with light beads, most tiaras can weigh you down and by night – end up a relief to remove.

Amazing Crafting Products give us another option to provide the look of large and fabulous, without unnecessary or awkward weight. By using the Amazing Molding Putty and the Amazing Casting Resin, you can design one that is fit for a queen!!

I am glad you stopped by to take a peek at one of my many projects that I will be sharing with you throughout the coming months!

Variations of this particular piece can be made in my Tiara Extraordinaire workshop this fall for the Art Is You Retreats in Stamford, CT. Please CLICK HERE to stop by the site to check out this popular venue!  Here is a video snippet on what I will be showing students what to do!
