Guess where I'm going??

At ScrapFest, Nancy and I took advantage of the early-bird entrance to the marketplace on Friday that was included with our crop fee.  One of the booths we stopped at was Stamping Bella - it was our first and only make-n-take of the weekend and I bought an adorable stamp:  Jill is Two.  Sadly, I can't include the stamp image here, but I can include this beautiful card made by Elaine Hughes, using the stamp:

I haven't had a chance to use it yet, but I'm excited to do so - it so reminds me of Aili at this stage, when she doesn't get her way... and she's well past two!  Ah, well...

Anyhow, while we were paying for our purchases, I picked up a flyer with coupons for discounts on future purchases, not sure when I'd be able to visit the store, as it's approximately 4 hours away! 

Then I saw it.

The store was having Donna Downey come to teach classes!  I have always admired her artistic flair and after talking to Holly, we discovered that we BOTH wanted to take the same class!

So, on June 6th, we're heading to Stamping Bella to take her "Swatches" class!!  We will be making 3 - 10" canvas artworks in framed loops.  Here's a class description:

New in a series of craft media workshops, you'll learn the step-by-step process of how to create Donna Downey's signature Swatch art pieces. In this 4-hour workshop, you will create three individual 10" framed canvas Swatch art pieces utilizing more than a dozen art mediums, techniques and tools. As you create each canvas, you will build upon layers of technique and applications, introducing new ideas that will open up multiple creative possibilities for layering and texturizing your art.

I'm so excited!!


  1. FUN! I took a class from her a couple of years ago and she is an amazing person! enjoy!!! You are soooo lucky!

  2. Sounds FANTASTIC! Have a great time :)
