Well, the classes with DJ Pettitt and Deryn Mentock were absolutely awesome! I really can't even begin to tell you all how much I enjoyed their classes. If you ever get the chance to take one of their classes, please do. Both DJ and Deryn are wonderful teachers, so patient and understanding.
I'll post some more pictures later but for now, the above picture is what I painted in the first class. I did the wire attachment but it's not quite finished so I'll post that later. But I do love the wire on it.
I had a blast while in Alabama -met some really awesome women, ate some delicious food and just generally had a fun time.
I sure did miss my family though! My husband and I usually go everywhere together so that was a little different for me. I did remember to tip everyone that I was supposed to at the hotel (my husband usually takes care of all of that).
I was invited to join a great group (Altered Art Diva's) while in Alabama. This is the group that Joyce Vance is a part of - the lady that organized the entire workshop. What a gal! She did a great job and I, for one, am so glad that she took this project on for all of us.
So, anyway, I am so pleased to have been ask to join their group. The women that I met in Alabama were SO much fun! They know how to have a great time for sure...
I got to spend some time with DJ, Deryn and Ronnie Grundset after class hours. We had lunch or dinner together almost every day. I really love to get to know people apart from the classroom. These are the kinds of relationships that I truly treasure and the relationships that will span the years.
I hope that all of you are having a good day - one filled with a creative spirit.
Enjoy each and every moment as if it were your last.
And show some love - be kind.
Reach out to your neighbor.
Treat everyone the same way that you would like to be treated -
the universe will bring it back to you...
