Wow it has been over a month since I last blogged and a LOT has happened in that time, many fantastic opportunities especially for ‘Your Creative Journey’ … first up, I met with the owner of Prima while I was in Los Angeles and she knew that I was planning on bringing Ingvild Bolme here to do workshops and she asked me if I would be interested in organizing a ROAD SHOW for the PRIMA Educators  to Australia and New Zealand !!!
I cannot tell you how excited I am about this opportunity, so if you know a store that would love to host a class taught by a Prima Educator during the last week of October/first week of November 2011,  make sure you have the store owner email me at as soon as possible.

The four tutors going to different stores will be Ingvild Bolme, Marion Smith, Sharon Laakkonen and one more girl!, this is an awesome line up and I can’t wait to see what they are going to be teaching you !!!

There is more EXCITING news to come but I can’t share just yet…

When I was at CHA it was AWESOME to catch up with so many friends and meet more talented gorgeous people, I had a great time! I also picked up a project from TIM HOLTZ which is going to be auctioned off for the Flood Victims so make sure you go and join our facebook page here!

April is fast approaching and Nat’s workshops are booking out so make sure you contact your local store under the Creative Journey April Schedule at the top of this page. I saw Nat in action at the Tattered Angels booth at CHA and she blew me away along with everyone who watched her create!!! You are going to love learning and getting your hands dirty in her workshops!

I am also in the process of planning workshops for Jen Starr in June and Candy Rosenberg in August… you can check out Jen’s blog here and you MUST check out this AMAZING project that Candy did for the Graphic 45 booth at CHA this year here.
