The Results: 10 Of Hearts

These are photos from The Ten of Hearts class today. Each participant made heart atc's as homework which we swapped in class. After that, each person took their traded hearts and made a fabric book to house their treasures. This is my finished book showing all their work. Was class fun, or what? I am not the world's best photographer, but I have the best students ever. Thanks, Ladies for making it so much fun and thanks to Debbie for swapping with us and letting us play at your store! It was great seeing how everyone basically started with the same supplies and cards and how well everyone made her book "her own!" I can't wait to play with you all again some time!

Gelli Plate Classes Update

Today's class, just like the last one had such amazing students. We even had people from Payson, AZ and the state of Washington. By the time class was over, it was like we were all old friends. It is amazing how quickly us old timers can teach the newer people how to call out, "Debbie, I want a (whatever) when a little art emergency arises and it is decided that what is being used in class must be in the bag going home, too. Of course Frenzy Stamper had just what we needed, especially lots of new stencils. Well, since the first class sold out, several others have asked to come "next time," and today there were only two seats left over, we are going to offer the class again on Saturday, April 13 from 10-4. More pictures are here:     Come join the fun!

Los Gatos, Hello!

It's kinda funny how every little victory never seems small. I am pleased to say I will be selling my handmade goods at The Artful Journey Art Retreat in Los Gatos, CA.  I got the nod yesterday. BFF Edna and her guys will be staying here keeping an eye on things "til I return, so I am eternally grateful for that. I am excited not only to sell but to take in the whole experience traveling with another BFF and learning from the ever fabulous DJ Pettitt, indeed one of the best of the best, and to do a little shopping of my own as well. This will be my first year there, but I have it on highly reliable report that the whole deal is pretty fabulous.

Classes Update

I have booked several more Zentangle® classes. Details for dates and times for ALL classes are in the sidebar. Due to popular demand, we are going to repeat a few including Zentangle 1, the class where all the very basics are laid out and people learn how yes, they really can learn to do beautiful line drawings one stroke at a time.  4 zentangles will be done in Zentangle 1, and three of the ones from Zentangle 1. Then all new Zentangle classes will be coming in May. I will post pictures for those later since they are still on the drawing board, so to speak.
There are just a few spots in the Gelli Prints Journal and the 10 of Hearts classes for February 8 and 9. Details for those are in the side bar as well. I would love to see YOU in class!
