I am finalizing my 2017 travel schedule and while I sure wish that I could get to each one of you, I can't. Between the rising costs of travel and the unfortunate sad truth of more stores closing, it has become a little bit of an arm wrestle. Not only do I want to teach, encourage and inspire you, I want to sit and create with you. I feel like my workshops are going to be a little different. While I want to teach you new techniques and inspire you to look at products a little differently than their intended use, I also want to take time to share. I feel it is important for our community of creatives to come together to create, laugh, cry, snack and share. It is called FELLOWSHIP and it is a key part of our lives. I don't just want to be the teacher, I want to sit, chit chat, drink coffee in the morning, iced tea with extra ice in the day AND evening, share, inspire and create. I think I already said that but it is worth repeating. WE need our community, we need fellowship and we need to gather together, so let's get together. My 2017 workshops are going to be a little of this, that and the other, Together we will play with lots of color by "doodling" with a paintbrush, a needle and of course, with pens. We will experiment with paints, canvas, paper, embroidery floss, watercolors and felt and we will use some of what we have to create new things. We will create faith based art in art journals, on wood, paper and rubber and share it with others to inspire and encourage. My plan is to not only teach you, but encourage, inspire and remind you of not only how to create, but how and where to share.
Stay tuned for the release of the 2017 dates in just a few days! I can't wait to create with you.
