Happy September and classes!

Can you believe it?  This year is moving at a fast clip...Christmas is in 112 sleeps!  What???  I'm so not ready for the holidays yet!  It could stress me out if I let it, wink.  I am promising myself I am going to be ready and on top of it this year.  I will not let it get me, lol.  Why does time seem to go faster the older we get.  I remember wishing for the summer, wishing for my 16th, wishing for my 21st birthday.  If I only new I would now be wishing for time to slow down.  Bre is in her senior year, progress reports are already be sent out next week.  Crazy!  Football season is in full swing, so she is really not home much.  She is part of the band (Color guard) and always practicing and if she isn't doing that she is with Wesley.  At least she is enjoying this time in her life.  I am very grateful for that.
I have been working hard on my getting my classes ready for my trip to Donna Downey Studios October 18-19.  So excited to go back and teach there.  Love her store, it is filled with fun mixed media stuff, different stamps and lots of other goodies!  I will be shopping for sure!  I wanted to share my classes with you, they should be going up this week on her website.

This one is called Dylusions and Distress.  I will be teaching lots of different Dylusions techniques and then how to incorporate Distress Inks in for a stunning looking canvas!  The colors are so fun and vibrant!

This one is my Happiness Mini featuring Teresa Collins Vintage Finds Collection!  This is one of my all time favorites.  (well, I say that every time she has a new release!)  It is perfect to welcome in the fall season and just remember those little things that make us happy and grateful!

Last but not least...Poppy Art!  I had to do something with Donna's new Poppy stamps.  I absolutely LOVE them.  We will create two fun projects in this class.  I three piece wall hanging as well as a mini tag album that will be great to display with the first piece.  We will be doing lots of "Distressing" in this class with Distress Inks as well as a bunch of other Ranger products!  Fun for sure.  If you're in the area I hope you can join me!  I will be selling any left over kits after October 20.  If I have any left I will post that information here.  If you would like to see bigger images, just click on the picture.  TTFN
