Workshop Love and Giveaway Winner!!

Hello Friends
Over a year ago my sis and I attending an amazing workshop with Stephanie Lee at Artbliss and I cannot tell how much that event changed me.
Click here if you want to read about it.
After that class  I promised myself that I would ...
1-take another workshop
2-meet more bloggy friends
3-go on another road trip with sis
4-have fun!
So I started saving my pennies and have now signed up for not one but  two workshops. Omygoodness.
I am so excited.
The first, is an online workshop given by the one and only

I purchased a piece from Debrina about five years ago,maybe longer, and at the time
she sold her work on Ebay and I was lucky to get it because her fans just bid and bid and bid.

Isn't she precious?
I look at it everyday and smile smile smile.
Now the second class I'm taking with Sis is in Danbury Conn.
So I'm flying up to Long Island,then we're taking a ferry to Connecticut!!
This Richard Salley class is going to W.O.N.D.E.R.F.U.L!!
I have been itching to learn this technique of stamping on solder.
But the best part of that trip will be hanging out with my Sis making Art!!

...and speaking of workshops,I have been busy with my first class starting at Artful Gathering this week...
I'm not going to lie..I'm nervous..this being my first workshop and all,but I feel prepared and will keep fingers crossed everything works out ok and that my students are happy.
Plus at the end of June I have two other online workshops starting and for my "Make Every Minute Count" class the kits have all sold out and I am busy preparing the kits for the "My Home Song" workshop...

Do I sound excited...Gosh I hope so...because I am over the moon eXcitEd with all this wonderful learning, teaching, sharing
going on!

Now for my giveaway Winner!!

hey,don't feel like a Cat on a hot tin roof, you are bursting with creativity and talent. Love that you are taking workshops and can't wait to see more of your faboosh creations. I wear the bracelet "I won" from you all of the time and my sweet granddaughter knows it was made with her in mind. She is already counting down the years to when she is 16 and I turn it over to her so she always remembers all of the people who had her back when she had her AVM surgery. Just look at the marvelous ripple effect you created with just one bracelet.

This is all pure fun! Danbury Connecticut, eh: look northward and wave to me, cat :-)

You were born to teach. Sincerity and talent is unbeatable and that is you! I think that pressed metal class is going to take you somewhere else altogether. I can see why you're excited

See you later , teacher ♥
