Wild and Happy giveaway...

Wow, thank you so much for your patronage in my etsy shop yesterday....and always. I had so much fun putting everything together and glad that it had such a warm reception. I plan to update my shop more frequently, so check back often.


Today is a very exciting day, because general registration begins for the ZNE ConvenZioNE that I will be teaching at along with the most amazing instructors from August 22nd-24th in Pleasanton, California. Learn all about the three day long festivities in this YouTube video that Chel put together.

Just check out the workshop descriptions HERE....wow!! So excited to see my class (above) House of Inspiration as part of this wonderful event. If you sign up for my class, please let me know. I'd love to start up a little group to socialize and discuss before the event takes place. Can't wait to meet some of you!!!


So because I am absolutely wild and happy about all the enthusiasm that you all bring to my art I am also hosting a giveaway. In the spirit of my inspiration board class, I will draw a name on Friday morning to win a goodie bag of inspiration. Here is a peek and I'm sure I'll be adding more throughout the week. Please leave a comment on this post with an email to reach you at if you win.Thanks for everything!!!
