Hey friends! wow.. I really need to be better at this don't I?
well today I have a couple of just fun things to share that some of my dear friends are involved in and a giveaway too! How's that for a thursday?
first off ..
I wanted you all to know that NEXT Monday is our semi annual "workshop" sale!
what does that mean? All of my workshops (with the exclusion of these 3 spring workshops).. will be on sale! Most of them HALF OFF! so.. if you have been thinking of signing up for one of my older courses..
WAIT until monday!! When the sale is on!
ALSO many of you have been emailing me about when we would be restocked from our major sale and FINALLY we are! We have restocked In our Scarlet Lime Online Store,
Gelli Plates, Faber Castel Pen (the famous white pen and more colors too), Ranger Sprays, and all of Claudene Hellmuth's paint, and Lots of Crafters workshop stencils, PLUS my products too are back in stock as well as TONS of other items (Like liquid glaze, modeling paste, Matte mediums, charcoal pencils, etc.!
So just wanted to let you know for those of you that have been wondering!
Second, I wanted to let you know about this fun little art retreat I am going to in June. Last year when I heard about it, I signed up before it even went live to the public! lol. I mean I seriously emailed the girl begging her to let me sign up early because it was THREE of my most FAVORITE artists all in ONE place!
Artology Retreats will be hosting a Summer Retreat called Sugar & Spice!
The three teachers are Juliette Crane, Danielle Daniels, & Mindy Lacefield! seriously?? is that like a dream team or WHAT?? you want to know the OTHER best part? Ben and I are going together! We were looking for something unique to do for our 19th anniversary.. and GRANTED these are three girls (totally different than taking a class from Jesse Reno), but I think still he will enjoy their styles and make it his own! He and I can learn SO much from these brilliantly talented girls! It's June 5th-9th and I think she only has a few spots left! It's in the Cute little city of Port townsend right out of Seattle (actually SUPER close to where the retreat was I went to last month). So I am really excited to go back and show ben the beautiful ocean and island. I can't wait! Anyhow.. really the reason I am telling you is that I THINK you should come too AND bring your husbands So my benny isn't the only guy! haha. No but seriously.. how fun would that be! I would love it! If you want to find out more about it, You can visit the Artology website, Here.. She also has a facebook page!Sugar & Spice Retreat
One more thing before the giveaway.. As you know my Behind the Art Class started this week (don't worry you can still join!!).. BUT another class started this week too.. my dear friends, Jeanne Olivers new class, and it is FREAKING awesome!
(creating beauty from the ashes)
MAN oh man she has jammed packed this class with goodness. ARTSY wonderful goodness!
I can't WAIT to get into this workshop! She is so utterly talented. I was blown away when I took the class from her in March at the retreat in Washington. OH my gosh.. in LOVE with this girl even more now! So if you are looking for another online class to do, to keep you busy through the summer, THIS one is great! Check it out of you have time! Not to mention.. she has this AWeSOME new Ning site community. Oh my gosh in love with it. Basically this wonderful creative space she has created for women to come and chat and share and bond! Her Creative Network, offers free tutorials and classes in the community. It's truly fun. I spend time on there and fall in love with all that she offers for FREE on it! So check that out too!
So onto our giveaway.. this is about another AWESOME class that just started.. by one of my "favorites" that I stalk lol. Ms Juliette Crane's new class, How to Paint an Owl 2!
Juliette's sweet owls were the very first thing I fell in LOVE with about Juliette! I took How to Paint an Owl last year and LOVED the course! So fun!
She is giving away a spot on my blog today.. all you have to do is comment on the post and you are entered!
I will pick a winner next week! Simple as that! so fun! So make sure you go check out Juliette's website too for more info!
But here is a fun little video she did about the class!
So thanks for letting me share, thanks for putting up with me being so flighty latley with the blog. Just Overwhelmed and understaffed (I can't seem to clone myself, so there are two of me? when is that going to happen? lol it's 2013? I thought for sure we would have cloning down by now :)) jk.
well you all have a FABULOUS weekend!
i am working on a project I saw on pinterest, that I am doing JUST for you gals! It's a fun idea on how to make your own roller stamps! I saw it and thought, dang this would be so fun and DANG the girls (and guys) who read my blog would LOVE to do this too. So Ben and I went and bought the supplies for it last week and I am going to try and get that filmed sometime in the next week or two. I leave for California NEXT week to go teach, so might not get done before then, but it's SO fun I can't wait!
anyhow.. Hope you are all well. I am also going to be doing a blog post next week on my fibromyalgia and the oils and things I have been using for it that have been AMAZING. I get emails daily about it and so thought it would be good information to share on the blog, so that everyone has access to it! I post things here and there on facebook about it.. but it would be great to have it all in one place!
anyhow.. have a FABULOUS weekend!
