As previously mentioned, we held a workshop Monday at the Texas State 4H Agents conference. We held a repurposing session plus my niece Brenna went along and worked a mini booth for us.
We ripped up skirts and stained 4H tees to make pumpkins and even used a wine bottle for the stem on one. Painted stools, tool boxes, made brooch pins, masks, and decorated over a jar that had a near impossible to remove label. If you can't remove a label, cover over it! One lady is working on converting an old ice cream freezer to a hanging basket covered with a crochet table cloth.
Considering I had no idea what they were bringing, it all turned out really good and they acted like they really enjoyed it.
One of the Agents even remembered me from my 4H days in the 90’s! It's an organization that I am proud I grew up in and happy to have the opportunity to speak with them now.
All in all, a good day! I do look back and can think of a few things I wish I would have shown or told them, but it's ok.
