Maedeup Class

Saturday was the first of my eight week maedeup classes. We learned two knots. The one on the far right was quite simple with few steps. The knots in the center I had learned during my previous introductory class. The three knots in the center of the first maedeup was extremely difficult with a lot of twists and turns.

The maedeup bracelet we made. The teacher picked out the colors. How did she know it was Minnesota Vikings colors? It was so much fun to make.

On Sunday, I had a craft afternoon with mother of my husband's co-worker. She loves to craft and wanted to learn some of my crafts. We made some polymer clay beads which I am putting into a bracelet for her. She brought me this box that she made. It is a Korean paper craft called Hanji http://www.koreanpaperarts.com/about/what.asp). She is going to teach me how to do this. She also knows where the store is to buy the supplies.

Another view of the box. Although she spoke really no English and my Korean is still in it's infancy, we communicated brilliantly through our love of crafting. Her daughter was also there to help translate. It was a wonderful afternoon and I think I made another friend here in Korea.

Awesome! I was making something yesterday with the one-and-only knot that I know (for a digi-scrapping thing) and thought of you! Can't wait to see more stuff!

Becky, I love the maedup. That box is stunning! Glad you have a new friend.

I saw some hollow poly clay beads formed around corn starch "peanuts" then brushed with pearlex. They were stunning! You should try them.

Miss you!

Okay girl, where would I find corn starch peanuts here in Korea. I'm still looking for padded mailers! LOL!

I miss you too!

I'm trying to remember if I ever got padded envelopes in Korea and I'm drawing a blank.
