What a week!

What would be like "Fashion Camp" with teens?

Herding "wild" cats!

And what is it like when all those little paws start playing with fabric and thread and pins and needles and sewing machines and running with scissors?

They begin unleashing their inner creativity.

We created inspiration boards and designer labels.

Made headbands, wrist cuffs, necklaces,

purses, flowers, aprons

and "snuggle puss" dolls.

They revamped tee's, shorts, tie dyed shirts and
costumed 6 year old "Rock Stars".

Don't let these smiling faces fool you...
They're "Wild" Animals!

See? More evidence of changing the world. It looks like you made a very happy group of girls very confident in their creative abilities and, being a former art teacher, I know that is quite the trick to pull out of your fabulous talented hat! Magic! Next time, lets have a "Make Frumpy Middle Age Marsha a Rock Star" camp - I'll just stand and let everyone transform me under your cooler than heck guidance!
