Good Morning people! Whew its super early here.. I couldn't sleep anymore. My mind started going on this new project that has been dying to get out of me for a few weeks. I had a pow wow with Sheri (MDW) and its coming to life.. and I am so inspired and can't wait to get started on the sample. Its going to be called "What Inspires Me" and will have tons of really fun thing to play with. Fabric, Embroidery Thread, Felt, buttons, all wrapped up in a 7Gypsy album. I'll take a pic of the items I picked (tons of Turquoise, Black and White) and post here hopefully later today.
I taught my 5x5 Acrylic class yesterday to the best group of ladies. We all had so much fun. I can't tell you how rewarding it is to see other people having fun and really enjoying making something you created. The best feeling EVER! If I can inspire just one person to "go outside" the box, or be creative on their own, I am such a happy girl! We'll be doing the same class again next Saturday, so if you missed it this weekend, be sure to come join us on July 28th, call the store for details 925-952-4437.
I am also going to be offering a Wall Hanging Acrylic piece that will have different shapes and beatiful ribbon, paint and more alcohol inks.. look for that one in August as well. I am going to be teaching alot of fun classes this fall so make sure you check here and are on the MDW email list.
We are having Tonys 2nd Birthday party here today.. not a great day to have only slept a few hours, but I'll sleep tonight.. I can't believe my little guy is growing up.. he is half my size now.. big big boy..
I leave you with an older project of mine, but I never posted it. Its my HOME cigar box. It has a mini fold out album of our house. This was a fun project enjoy!
