Fun at Art from the Heart

It was preview day at Art from the Heart on Saturday, and a really fun time was had by all. It was fab to see so many people there and lovely to meet some of you, who I know in blogland, in real life! Thanks for coming to say hello :-)

Here are a few photos of the day (thanks to Sue, Kaz and Debra for ... ahem ... 'lending' me the photos!)

The one and only Dyan in action

Me. Singing, teaching, or possibly both at the same time!

Me, Debra (all the way from Idaho!) and Dyan

Sandy, working her students hard in a taster session

Kaz 'it's good to be mucky' Hall

Yummy cupcakes made by Teresa and her girls :-)

Projects and class samples laid out on the table. Plenty of inspiration here! 

Keep an eye out here for classes run by Dyan, Sandy and myself. Maybe see you there soon!

While I was there on Saturday I just had to have a play with the lovely new Dylusions inks, as well as the stencils and stamps. I think they just might even be a little bit brighter than the old inks yay!! Not sure what I am going to do with this background yet but I'm liking it so far:

Byee for now .....

  18. I sure wish I lived a few thousand miles closer so I could join in the muck. It looks like so much fun. All the stores here in the Seattle area have closed and so we can't take classes like you lucky folks. It looks like you had a creative a fun fest with lots of work but also alot of laughter. Your pages as usual are an inpiration.
