I'm so excited about the Fairy Charm class I'm going to be teaching next quarter. I finished the sample this week. My little model wouldn't cooperate so I didn't get a sweet smile like I'd hoped but I'm still really happy with the way it turned out.

I'm working on four different classes right now. They're all in different stages of completion. I get an idea for one and I switch gears. I'm having such a great time developing classes I think people will really enjoy and everyone that's been coming to my recent (and sold out!) classes has been so wonderful to work with.


P.S. That's not my hairy hand in the pictures in case you were wondering!!

Love, Love, Love These!!

I bought a bunch of the Melissa Frances resin appliques for a class I'll be teaching next month. I had some oil pastels out at a crop I was at on Saturday night and thought it might be fun to color them instead of using them in the white color they came in. Um, yeah? I like them plain but scribbling some color on and then blending them with a little water on a paint brush changed them from like to love!!

Another Great Weekend...

What a great weekend! Saturday morning my friend Valerie and I went to a stamp show for a couple of hours. There was alot of great stuff. We couldn't stay long because we both had classes to teach at 1:30pm. I had 11 sign ups for my class and it was hectic and oh so fun! The papers for the mini album were the Angelique by Prima (Iron Orchid). I just love them! That evening my husband and I met up with my sister at Great America who'd taken my kids earlier in the day. It was a BUSY day!

Sunday Valerie picked me up at 6am and we were off for our monthly field trip to Alameda Pointe Flea Market. I got a bunch of things, some personal and some for future classes. One of my personal splurges was a big linen down filled bolster pillow for my bed. Old linen, it's my new love.

I've got great things cookin for upcoming classes. I need to get to work on putting them together.

Cross your fingers for me, I finally took the plunge and sent a piece of my work to Somerset. I hope they like it!!
