Are YOU coming to the party?

Other people call them workshops, but when Kelly is the girl "runnin' the show," I call it partytime. We laugh, we get inspired, we play. For some reason, when Kelly comes to town, each class just is like a girlfriend day, a slumber party without the pillows and jammies, an experience you just don't want to end. Actually we have joked around about turning these gatherings into overnight parties, we just never figured out how to make that happen yet. The next best thing until that gets solved is to sign up for one of Kelly's before dark classes and just see for yourself. And if you have been lucky enough to go before, ya know what I'm talkin' about! She will be at Frenzy Stamper in Scottsdale, AZ from April 8-10 for five classes. Here's what ya gotta do:
1. Go to the site, check out the classes, and pick the ones you want.
2. Call the store (480-946-0007) or go in, and sign up before it's too late.
3. Gather your goods, and get to class!
You won't be sorry. It sure would be nice to see all the Frenzy Sisters there. You know, the ones of us that used to go for all the swaps and other crazy fun. Some of us haven't seen each other for a long time. Let's have a little reunion!

I'm Not Gonna Lie

When I went to my mailbox yesterday to look for a long awaited package, still not there, I found something else: my complimentary issue of Haute Handbags, Spring 2011. I have always liked this magazine because it has unexpected treasures in it, but I honestly have to say, this issue is really kicked up several notches from the ordinary unexpected. If anyone is looking to make a statement with a purse, bag, tote, what have you in this category, this issue is spilling over with inspiration. My article on making a laptop bag, book tote, and purse is on pages 32-36, and I am honored to be among all the other fabulous mixed media artists in there. I'm not gonna lie.

Coming Soon! Gasp!

So as I was scrolling through my inbox, and reading the latest ad from Stampington, I found this:
Scrolling to the bottom I found one of my projects! I actually gasped;I was so surprised. I knew my work was going to be in the magazine, but not in the ad. This is one of three pieces in a set of items I made from old quilts I got at the Art Unraveled shopping extravaganza in the Hannah Grey booth. The other two projects are a purse and a computer bag. The magazine should be on newsstands and in stores April 1. (No joke!)
