So after yesterday's mammoth re-ordering session following Artsycrafts, I really needed to do something creative today, so I spent the day working on one of my new class samples. It's very different from my usual green creations, it's all pastel and pretty and chic and elegant and I LOVE IT!!! I may well hang it in my home after the classes are done and dusted!
I can't reveal the whole thing just yet but here are four snippets to whet your appetite.

All I will say is that it is one big project. I know I'm a rotten tease, but it's sooooo much fun. So if you are liking the look of this and would like to take this class, it will go on sale on Saturday 29th May. This is the first time we have had a mid year class schedule, I have always been too busy but with Linda on board now, it will be classes all year round. I know that Linda has been hard at work on her classes and we should be able to release the schedule soon. That doesn't mean that you can book them any earlier, you still have to wait for the 29th!!!

I think I mentioned once before that I am planning some Art Journaling classes (does anyone know how to spell journaling....or is it journalling?) I have no idea and spell checker hasn't got a clue either so from now on we will call the AJ classes! Anyway, I have been trying to figure out a way to make sure that everyone who comes to the AJ class, can actually get some words on the page without sitting for 20 minutes thinking about it or be embarrassed about. I had a real lightbulb moment yesterday and now I have a cunning plan. Oh, if you want to find out what the cunning plan is....yep, you guessed it, you have to come to a class.

Well that's it for me today, I have a hot date with an ironing board....another of my favourite pastimes!!!

Take care as always, Lin

I love the colours that you've used Linda,it looks very intriguing. I never knew that I was within driving distance of you until Ally Pally this year! So I'll be checking out the classes, Judith x

Looks great, what a tease! I wish I lived within driving distance - well, I am, really, it's just that not having a car doesn't help!! See you soon, Lin.

such a tease.... I'm a smidge confused is the sale day the day after the class release day or are they on the same day cos I can't get to both...drat will have to wait by the phone at work instead. colours look great on sample though so just a couple of weeks to the big reveal.

Where do you get your energy from - you are amazing!

Yes please - do publish the classes ahead of the release date - it will give us more time to sort out accommodation etc to take part.

Gorgeous project...If Mark is going to be on the end of the phone on the 29th, tell him I can't wait to speak to him and keep two spaces free for me and my sister...see you soon!!!

Linda Cain said...

Love it. You remind me of the Energizer Bunny... always on the go coming up with something great!
Good luck, girl.
Go get 'em!


Sally Bowman said...

The sample looks lovely, wish I could come to your classes!

BTW, I think "journaling" is US spelling, and "journalling" is UK spelling, if it helps (if it matters!)

The classes go on sale on Saturday
29th May and the demo/sale day is
on Sunday 3oth May. Sorry, I can't manage to sell the classes and demo at the same time.

Can't wait for the 29th!! Lin and I will make a weekend of it! As a teacher of English, I should point out that 'journaling' is a construction - a verb made up from a noun!! Therefore , you can spell it how you like, until it enters the dictionary and becomes a standard spelling.

DF - Heidi said...

yes you really are a tease the class looks like something i need to come to i think ;0)
now will that be an ironing board using wax or those conventional horrid things called a pile of clothes!!!

Love the sneak peeks!!

Allyson said...

I'm sooo looking forward to the next class release. Most of my classes bunched at the beginning of the year so I'm having withdrawal symptoms now. Just as well I'm on the second Artsy Crafty then isn't it!!! Oh, and the sneak preview... "You are awful, but I like you!"
