Winner of my December Giveaway + a new California Workshops announcement

Thanks so much for all the supportive comments about my recent post:  Limitations, CHA, and Stencil Giveaway.  I really appreciate your taking the time to not only visit, but to also leave a comment.  I read each and every one.  I used to pull a winner and from the 99 comments, #96 was the random number generated:

And the winner is Gitte Gronfeldt Sorensen.  Gitte, please email me your snailmail address an I will get those two beautiful StencilGirl Products stencils out to you right after Christmas. (I dare not go near a post office before December 26th!)

And for the new California Workshops announcement, here are the details:

Art journaling workshops with France Papillon and Marjie Kemper

My friend France Papillon and I are offering Impromptu Art Journaling classes in a private home in La Mirada, CA next month right after the Craft & Hobby Association’s tradeshow in Anaheim.  The classes are offered on Wednesday, January 14th from 1pm to 5.30pm.We’ll have two classes of 2 hours each with one led by France, and one by me. Price per class is $40. Package for the two classes is $70!


 The host, Exsa Perez, is handling arrangements. This is a very recent booking so we would like to confirm details as soon as possible, as we both leave for California in just a few weeks and of course the holidays are upon us. If interested, please email Exsa ( as soon as possible to book your seat. Seating is quite limited and we would love to see you there!


 Thanks again for visiting today!
