Pat McCauley-Mangels is getting a jump on Christmas Cards for 2021.  This is another one of the Diamond Art projects she has completed, with a different look.  Pat says it is a fun project that can be worked on a little at a time and easy to pick up where you leave off.   

Hi, I want to share the continuation of my COVID past time- collages. I drew each  butterfly and purse.  I use acrylic paint, cut paper, glitter, hole punches, tissue paper and more. What‘s next? I think shoes!! Regards to all. Stay well, Roni Cojac Mintz (1/27/2021)

These items were made by our classmate, Gino Lynch and given as gifts to Pat McCauley-Mangels and Honey Cottrell several years ago.  Gino has many talents and some of them may be viewed on Gino's Bio Page.  Click "HERE"

This is Herbie The Snowman.  I just finished him.




"When we lived in Ca., I did some craft shows and one I had 25 of them and sold out. The next year Rich cut out 17, but I only did 15 and sold those. I never had time to make one for myself so I decided now was the time. I made one for us and one for my neighbor because we always help each other. They take a day if that is all you have to do, these took me 3 days even though they were already cut out.


We are thinking of making some Easter items and Memorial and Labor Day."

Hi Marcy..

I am OK with your putting any of my Facebook leatherwork pictures on the class web site.

My leatherworking website is as listed ... Richard Madri (9/7/2020)

Hi Marcy,

I read that you and Honey are asking for hobbies that have surfaced during COVID. I collect magazines/ catalogs/ paper- anything that could be part of a collage. I finished these during COVID. The kimono is actually a metallic gold.


Our grandson graduated from high school in Philly. He is a freshman at the University of Florida in Gainesville. Anyone have a grandchild attending that University?

Hope classmates are doing well. Roni Cojac Mintz (9/4/2020)

Pat McCauley-Mangels, one of our 'Crafty Classmates'  (the first of many, we hope, who will  send us pictures to add to our new page), has been creating beautiful artwork  like this using Diamond Art kits.  The first two are completed and are gifts to family members.   The horses are a work in progress and has a 3D effect.
