Laura Sinsigallo of timeflies by lauralie. She taught a class on April 25, 2015, titled “Making an Eclectic Wind Chime“.

Laura and I knew each other growing up, and in fact, she and I got married in the same month. I remember she picked the same weekend my husband and I wanted for a wedding date, so I moved mine to the following weekend because we have common friends and we knew it would be a scheduling conflict.

I’ve always sensed Laura had a love of nature and art; she always dressed with a special artistic style, and had nice decor items in her home, which I remember admiring many years ago – but it wasn’t until she attended my fall class on making hypertufa pots that I noticed her art pieces on Facebook.

Browsing her sites, I immediately fell in love with her works of art. Just look at this adorable arrangement of fun flowers made by Laura! Do they make you want to dance?? They do for me – adorable and so well displayed.

And her snowmen – oh gosh, love those. I actually collect snowman art and asked she brought some of these along to our class on April 25, 2015, Saturday. She will, along with other unique pieces which will be available for purchase as a bonus to our class in April.

When Laura told me she also makes wind chimes, I thought about how perfect this fits the Container Crazy CT class theme of combining nature with art – and imagine the little items you may have at home you could use – along with the many collected unique pieces included in the class fee.

I’m very appreciative Laura Sinsigallo accepted my request to teach a class here in Broad Brook, CT for our attendees.
