Teaching classes is wonderful but it does become a bit of a juggling act to keep blog content up here and supplies and kits packed there.  I taught two classes last Saturday at Great American Stamp Store but sadly my camera quit on me, so I was left with only phone shots.  It was a pleasure to see everyone's unique take on the afternoon class (and I completely forgot to take any in the morning).  Thanks as always to Judy for having me!


Here's Susan, going to town.


I wish I could show you all her tags… my photos didn't pan out but her work is fabulous!


Debbie worked her stencils like Nobody's Magic.  Loved how she used the dark Washi tape to go along with some of her solid stamps.


This was “the other” Susan's booklet in progress.  Her colors were amazing and the finished project was even more stunning (and I think this is pretty darn stunning as is!)  Susan made us all sigh when she shared that she and a girlfriend go away every year for a week together, when they rent a house and do whatever artsy things they want.

I'm off to Absolutely Everything in Topsfield, MA this weekend to teach this class on Sunday:

Thanks for the visit. Have a great week.

    Such fun! I’m so far away :0(
    The tag booklet that the girls are working on looks fabulous! Do you perhaps have a tutorial on how to make it? I’d love to know.

    I can imagine juggling classes and blogging is tricky… but it’s so lovely to see what your students have been getting up to – gorgeous work all round. It’s a cute video too – only wish I could come and play!
