SEriously?? has it been like almost 3 weeks since my last blog post? OKay that's what happens when you launch a new online mixed media club, go to CHA for a week and host a week long retreat at your house lol. PLUS celebrate two birthdays in the same weekend AND have a surprise visit from family! lol
I am so bad.. the thing is, I have lots to blog about! lol. LOTS! just didn't have the time to actually SIT down and write. but I am back! Here I am! Lol (this is why following me on instagram will keeps you in the loop lol.. come on .. JOIN the instagram club :))
There are SO many things I want to share with you all.. but I can't fit it all in this post lol. So let's start with the basics..
First off.. holy cow.. wow.. amazing. can I just say.. our latest She Matters retreat.. here at my house the last week in January.. was.. simply put. AMAZING.
Magical and just so heart warming for me! This requires it's VERY own post all together.. so I won't say anymore right now.. but look for a post SOON!
I have also been busy filming THIS month's Art Society Monthly Club Video.. which debuts on the 15th (this saturday!!)
For those of you who missed the signups for January.. we JUSt now opened up new spots! You can sign up for the next four days on our Scarlet lime site, but after the 14th, it will be closed again for another month. OUr kit clubs are also open for signups too.. but again.. only for 4 short days! If you don't know what the Art Society Club is.. you can read all about it here and see sneak peeks of January's project HERE
What else?? so in all this craziness I have actually been doing some personal creating too! working on watercolor, charcoals, mixed media projects.. and just all for fun! here's a peak of what I have been creating! (i am going to do a full blog post on it next week!)
Speaking of Creating.. I have also been busy planning and writing up my ideas for my FIRST.. very own FIRST workshop of this year! I am going to announce it HERE on wednesday.. CAN NOT WAIT! It will start Next month and I hope will be one of my best workshops YET! seriously can not wait!IT"S BEEN SOOOOOO long coming.. seriously ladies.. I miss teaching all of you! This is going to be a month LONG class I hope you will enjoy.. it's going to be super special and include so much of my heart.. CAN"T wait to share it with you!!
and speaking of classes lol (I am sensing a theme here lol).. that is another thing I have been busy with.. as you know I am apart of the MAGICAL class, Studying the Masters, becoming an apprentice..
and I have been filming for the last couple of weeks all of my videos for this class. HOLY COW can I say.. HArd?? Learning from a master is SOO not easy! You are going to see a lot of crazy growth and real raw emotions in this workshop from me. The workshop has already started.. It's a colab with 8 other artists).. so I believe like 4 weeks are already up! And holy cow.. talk about pushing yourself creatively! IT seriously rocks. I am overwhelmed by the amount of information, techniques and guidance in this workshop already. Can't wait to sit down and play! If you would like more info on this workshop..

what else has been going on? TONS of new products have been arriving daily in our warehouse from our recent trip to the Craft And HObby wholesale show. Ben is busy unpacking it, finding space for it and going to be listing it soon!
(heres a peak!!)
We are going to do a video for you guys showing all the new products and what they would be great for! it's going to be fun.. a colab video :)
and lastly.. we celebrated two birthdays in January.. oldest son, Braden is now 18.. SO SAD..
and my second oldest son,Parker turned 17 the day before!
!! I am getting old.. so old. So sad too, I don't want them to leave home! My oldest leaves for a 2 Year Mission for our Church (I am lds, mormon).. this summer and I feel like a sappy mom.. wanting to spend all these last few months with him doing all these things.. and the only thing he wants to do is hang out with friends lol. He says to me all the time.. mom.. families are forever.. friends only last through high school, so I need to enjoy them now while I can. really?? lol.. too smart for his own britches! lol..
So that's whats been up here at the Tomlinson house! That and of course daily life, keeping up with 6 kids, dealing with my dang FIBRO (in all caps because I am yelling at it at the moment lol.. not happy with it lately)..
pretty much the only thing I haven't done is blog about it! IN my defense again.. I have post daily on instagram and facebook.. lots of silly stuff from my life, art studio, etc. So seriously.. come join me on both! love to see your sweet shining faces there.
okay.. so I will be back! Wednesday.. PROMISE!! with new details about my new workshop! Can't wait..
missed you all so much!
