I'm sorry it's been so long since I've written. I've been coming down off of a very full past few weeks. Having had Judy Wilkenfeld come in to teach our group last weekend was such a treat for us all, and a real honor for me personally. To spend two full days in her workshop was great, but it flew by as good times often do. I'll share with you what I made in her class in my next post.My girlfriend Nancy hosted a Trunk Show to coincide with Judy's visit and it was an evening of fun and great shopping as always. I love sharing Gilding the Lily with others, and I think everyone found amazing things there. Thanks for opening the shop to us, Nancy.
Friday night kicked off five days together with some amazing women, who are just the most fun. Joanna was able to join us, and make a long weekend of it. It was great to get to know her, and we fell in as though we had all been friends for years! What a kind, gentle, creative soul she is... and what a great addition to our group.
Judy is so talented and her books are full of such amazing detail. That's what drew me to her art and prompted me to ask her to come teach, when I met her last year. I love that she so generously shares her knowledge, tips and techniques for reproducing the effects she is known for, in such an easy~going manner. I couldn't have asked for more from her, or for a more relaxed creative workshop. I encourage any of you to study with Judy if you have the chance. Hopefully we can do this again the next time she comes to the states.
Thanks to all of the women who joined us, I hope you'll share your books as you continue to create in them. Please feel free to add your photos to the Yahoo Group so we can all see the wonderful work you do. And lastly a special thanks to Leslie for all your help and support, I could not have done this without you!
