Class: Wild West Cards with Cheryl Valadez

Good Morning! I hope you're enjoying a fabulous long weekend!

Saturday morning I am teaching a Wild West card class with a dash of "retro" thrown in just to mix things up a bit. These cards are fun and feature some very cool images by B Line Designs. The B Line mages are perfect for pairing with Copic markers, but colored pencils work just as well, if that's more your preference. Feel free to bring your favorite coloring medium. These cards are a touch whimsical and would be a great way to bring a smile to someone's face and let them know you are thinking of them.

June 5th, Saturday: 10:00am - 12:00pm (class fee $25.00)

Inky Binx Hijacks the Blog

"Hmmm, what's this? Looks comfy. Let me just fluff it up a bit to achieve optimal loft density."

"Ahhh...yes...this will do quite nicely. Napping is a science, you know, and I hold a PhD in the study of Napology."

"The rigors of being the second in command around here are exhausting. So many people to dazzle with my cuteness. Letting them pet me and feed me snacks...*yawn*...the responsibilities never end."

"You shouldn't try this at home unless you are a professional, such as myself."

Class: Leather Angel Necklace with Teresa Stoa

When Teresa dons this artfully crafted necklace, strangers stop her frequently to find out where to buy one. The details are exquisite and the beautiful craftsmanship is awe inspiring. BUT don't fret, because Teresa will share her stamping, painting and beading secrets for making this spiritual piece, during her class this Saturday. Her kit includes everything needed for this stunning project, but you'll want to bring personal charms and embellishments to make it your own, and basic tools, such as scissors, etc.
