hello beautiful friends! What a GOOD DAY today is! last night I was feeling SUPER crappy.. ate popcorn and that seems to make my fibro bad no matter what I take to make it feel better.. but it was just sitting there on the counter.. the GOOD kind.. from the movie theatre (my mom came into town to watch Ethan play his football game and celebrate his 10th birthday!) and she took my kids to the movies and brought a HUGE bucket home. Popcorn from the movie theatre is my weakness. I looked at it and looked at it and NEW i was going to cave.. and I did. AND ONLY one handful! and withing 20 mins.. sure enough.. oh had felt SOO crappy. So I took some medicine and went to bed.. and I had the best nights rest ever! Slept in until 10:00 lol. (that probably wasn't smart since I have a million things to do). but it felt good and I am in a great mood and today I get to see my sister!! and last night ethan made a touchdown (his first ever!!) and yea well life is good.
Guess what else I did this morning? I totally re-organizes my entire workshop page.. it seemed like it was so confusing and so many different things to sort through to find classes. so I created a page where all the class were on one page with links to each one if you want to learn more! So now when you click on the workshops tab.. you will see a beautiful organized page! wahoo!

MY NEWEST workshop!! With Junelle Jacobson!! Bless this mess.. the Art of Wild Abandonment No.2!
It starts October 23rd! Less then two weeks away! it's going to be amazing! I have been watching her videos all week long, so I can make my projects for the class and I am BLOWN away by it's contents.. Junelle actually wrote a little blurp to me about it..
Oh yes, Bless
This workshop is
another wild jump into all kinds of creative possibility!
Every sketch and
project is focused on encouraging you, they are little gifts of wild-whimsy to
inspire creating out of your own art-heart. We want you to be the artist that
you are meant to be -- brave, filled with wild ideas, and ready for new
We will start
with lots of crazy sketching ideas and watercolors. This will help us to bravely
step into new art journal projects you will love~ (Junelle is so excited she
started two new art journal books just based on week one!) We will focus on
simple shapes/forms/lines that will build up our confidence, and for the experts
in the group -- you will have loads of new sketch/watercolor ideas to try.
Week two is
filled with "Bless this Mess" projects that are meant to inspire your new
sketching abilities and give you all kinds of ideas to try (in really big messy
ways). We will mix and re-mix papers, paints, ephemera, and all kinds of
elements in our projects, showing you unexpected ways to create new projects
that are so...You!
near and far, the last week will be focused on rural and urban sketching. There
are ideas for travelling with your art, packing a kit of supplies, bringing your
experiences home with you, and seeing the great gift that "artist dates" can be
to your creative life! (Plus you will meet all of Junelle's favorite sketchy
artists, too.) Too fun!
Like the first
Wild Art Workshop, this one will be filled with lots of extras. Personal notes
and ideas, extra projects, and a rocking facebook group that loves to share!
Junelle's plan is simply to be a muse for your wild adventure, and encourage
and bless your creative play, inspiration and personal style.
This will be
some seriously wild fun!
