oh you sweet sweet friends are always so patient with me! lol.. so many of you have been emailing me asking me IF and when I would be advertising this workshop!
If you were around here last year about this time.. then you know last year I offered a class called the 12 Artsy Ornaments of Christmas..
which included me and 11 guest artists collaborating together in mini class, 5 day workshop.. where each day, for five days.. you get 3 new projects/ornaments/homedecor.. by 3 different artist and teachers!
IT was a HUGE hit and everyone loved being able to learn from so many fabulous teachers in one space!
Well we are doing it again THIS year!! wahoo! and I am in love with the line up of this years teachers! Some old.. some new! So I can't wait!
So want to know the details?
First off.. what is the 12 Artsy Ornaments of Christmas..
well don't let the name fool you.. NO it is not just ornaments. This workshop is dedicated to decorating your homes and trees for the holidays. So it includes both Ornaments, Home decor and even some christmas cards. Each teacher does their own project and everyone kinda picks what is in their heart. SO you get a good mix of everything you need to create a festive fun Holiday.
This workshop starts December 4th! JUST in time for the holiday! BUT as with all my other workshops.. you can register NOW using the link below (or go to another favorite artist page that is teaching and you can register on THEIR site too!

This weekend.. Tomorrow morning actually.. we are traveling to Boise to watch Braden, our oldest son.. play in the state football tournament! These boys have worked so hard and have an undefeated season.. and I just know no matter what. .if they play their best.. they will feel good about this year! Can't wait to go!
AND tonight.. Allie and I are going to the midnight premier of Twilight! Wahoo! it's a tradition.. we go to all of them.. we are going to go with one of my trues.. Meredith and her daughter (which is one of allie's best friends). And yes.. sometimes we do dress up a little bit. Nothing fancy.. but sometimes where a shirt that MIGHT or might NOT say.. "I heart edward & jacob" lol. Yes I know. immature! But that's me! lol
So.. I hope you all have a FABULOUS weekend!
The Winter Whimsy Christmas workshop is stil in FULL swing! We are half way through week one! and I am loving all the fun stuff going on! It's fun to watch the process of teaching others and then seeing what they do to put their own spin on it! Its so fun for me to see and be inspired by my students art! TRULY inspired!
Okay.. really quick. I have had a couple of women email me asking me if I am doing a retreat for next year.. because they are planning their year budget wise and just want to know IF i am doing one. The answer is YES! For sure!
It will most likely be in May.. I want to make sure we have some budding leaves on the trees AND have our house done too (not just the studio). I don't know the cost yet, but it will be 3 day retreat (thursday-saturday). It will NOT include hotel.. but there is one super close to my house. Just one exit away. and it's cheap. But meals will be provided. Of course creating Art projects, and learning new techniques.. but I will also be taking you to some of my favorite places to eat. To my favorite thrift stores and even do trips to Barnes and Noble. (which makes me think we might should make it a wed-saturday retreat). I just want plenty of time to relax and also play. To really get to know you all. I will ONLY have 6-8 spots available. So it will be VERy small and very personal.
AND then of course I will be hosting a giveaway next year.. at the first of the year.. where two people will win an all expenses paid trip to come spend the weekend with me at my art studio.. and just play and have fun!
TRULY going to be fun!
So yes if you are interested, I am doing a retreat! Cost.. unsure yet. But if you are interested of even being on the wait-list.. as it will only be 8 people at max (but I am thinking more like 6).. then email me for sure :) That signup won't be available until after Christmas.
Anyhow.. so that's life for today and this week! I am physically exhausted! lol. But ready for the weekend and going to sleep ALL the way to boise! (it's a 5 hour drive).. can't wait! lol
Hope to see you in the 2012 Ornament Workshop!
