Cathy Bluteau Art Class for $5.00!! Hurry!

This is pretty unbelievable, but it's true. Cathy Bluteau is offering the class she taught in 21 Secrets for $5.00!! She's just extended her offer to 1/31/13. If you don't take advantage of this, you really need your head examined.

I joined 21 Secrets in 2013 and Cathy's class was one of my favorites! Every time I look at this page I'm amazed that I made it. I love it. I love Cathy. And you will too!

Dina Wakley Workshop

I took a class with Dina Wakley in November and learned how to draw a face! I was so happy and excited about it that I could have left my car in the parking lot and flew home. Mind you, it's not a perfect face, but it Is a face. There were so many talented gals in that room, and I sat between two of them. I thought I would die of embarrassment, but I learned so much from them it was incredible. I don't think I'll ever practice enough to be as good as they are, but I will practice and improve because Dina is a fantastic teacher!

This is the best possible face I could draw when I walked into that room. Really.

And this is what I drew at the end of the day. Bravo!

I've hardly put in any practice lately and it shows. Two out of three drawings pretty much suck. But when I end up with something that looks like a face, I'm a happy girl!

This one's not too good.

This one's not so good either.

This is more like it!
I think she's kind of cute!

Pin Cushions & Altered Bottles

More projects that were started some time ago. The pin cushions are done, but the bottles are not.

And of course stickpins. You have to have beautiful stickpins.

And my much loved Starbucks bottles still waiting to be completed.
