Creative Week

This past week I have taken 2 classes w/Quinn McDonald, one a day long class and the other a two hr class both on journaling!! Great fun! I learned alot about myself and what I can do. Thurs night at the class Roz taught us how to dye using shaving cream! It was a blast and I can't wait to buy some so I can give it a try, the amazing thing is that it works on both paper and fiber!! Check it out at Today I am off to take a second teddy bear making class at Bernina Connection w/Diane. Today the bears will be made out of mohair, my last bear was of velveteen, so this will be a challenge. Will share pictures soon. Yesterday I had to break down and buy glasses, it took a week for me to wrap my little mind around it. I had lasik surgery some 10 yrs ago and have enjoyed being without classes for the first time since I was in grade school. Age has caught up with me, so the bright spot is maybe it will be easier to be creative with them.... LOL Wish I new what this is called, part of the palm tree that falls when it is windy and I am always wondering how I can use it in my art. I am planning to use this picture as a jumping off spot for my Organic Embroidery class. I would really like to use the actual piece in something.....
