Hitting the road....

Goodness Gracious where has the time gone?  I can't believe I haven't posted since June.  Facebook is just too quick and easy and I seem to be posting there instead of here.  Technology!!

I'm getting ready to hit the road....

Next week I head off to Spellbound in Pasadena, CA and then I will be teaching a class at a private little get together that will be with the most wonderful ladies.  

I can't wait to see them all!  

I'm so excited that I won't be heading down to SoCal all by my lonesome!  I've got this sweet little thang that will be accompanying me.  When I asked her if she wanted to go...she hollered "SHOTGUN"....I did have to warn her that we will be singing 99 bottles of beer on the wall, talking about boys and stopping every so often for french fries and Diet Coke.  

That's what I love about road trips.  

Fast food is justified !!

Sittin' around...eatin' bon bons

That's what it looks like!!  

I've been away from my blog for so long that it looks like I've been just sittin' around, watching tv and eatin' bon bons!!  But that is far from my reality.  I would definitely love a day to do that though.  That would be heaven.  

Here is what I have been up to and what I am going to be up to for the rest of the year.  

I'm pretty darn excited about all of it!

At the end of February I hosted 20 incredibly talented women for my Boudoir Lamp Workshop.

It was the most amazing weekend and I have lots to share about it, but that's for another blog post.  I just had to include it here so you see that I really haven't been lazing about!

Here are the things I've been working on for the rest of this 2014!  I am so excited about what this year has in store. 

Artful Gathering

First of all....I'm just giddy that my Artful Gathering 2013 class, Briley the Birdie, is now available on DVD.   

Words cannot express how thrilled I am with the quality of the DVD, the jacket and just everything about it.  A big shout out to Artful Gathering for making Briley look so good!

Secondly, I've been working hard on my 2...count 'em TWO online classes that will be offered for the 2014 season of Artful Gathering.
