Hi to all...

Good afternoon,

I hope you are all having a great week. 

La Palette art gallery is having a huge Anitique and Garage Sale this Saturday, from 9-4pm and we are having a sale of our own.  There will be everything from stamps, to paper to stamp pads on sale, including 15% off everything in the store.  The rain date will be Sunday.  Come down to visit our new surroundings.  The gallery is certainly inspiring, and you can check out our new classes.  We still have room in this Saturday's class from 1:30-4pm  You will make these "shimmery" cards using embossing folders, Shimmer Sheetz, and inks.

I just made a whimsical card using a stamp from Impression Obsession and Tombow markers.

I was also lucky enough to spot this screech owl, nestled in a tree during the day.  They blend in so beautifully with their surroundings.  His (or her) feathers look just like bark.

When I turned around, Rocky was staring at me...

Hope to see you this weekend,

Good afternoon

Hi to all,

Finally some sunshine!  The sun is streaming in the windows here, and it just makes me want to go for a walk.

We are settling into our new place.  It is very relaxing and inspiring.  After seeing what some of the students in the art gallery are doing, it makes me think of stamping on silk, vellum and other creative projects.

We finally received the much anticipated Tim Holtz Distress Markers.  These will be used in the Magenta Watercolour classes.  We also received the specialty paper and the watercolour brushes which are wonderful!

We got in more of the Memory Box dies as well as these keep flying off the shelves.

We have some wonderful upcoming classes, some of which are not full yet.

I was walking through the woods on Monday and came across these 2 cute critters.  I just love the way the Screech Owl blends into the bark of the tree.  No wonder he was so difficult to spot.  I was busy taking pictures of the raccoon when a young man asked if I was taking pictures of the owl which was right above my head!

Have a great week, and drop by to see the new place.  I'm sure you'll love it as much as we do!
