Donna Downey Classes

I'm so excited, because I booked up today to go on a weekend of classes taught by Donna Downey. It was a page from one of her scrapbooks that I used in my previous post. She also designs for Prima, as in Prima flowers etc. She is coming over from America in April, and teaching in Bury St, Edmunds, Suffolk running three classes, which are being organised by Your Touch of Craft, (see my side bar for a link). The classes will involve fabric based scrapbooking, and paint based,  paper and chipboard, embellishment scrapbooking too. That means the best of both worlds as far as I'm concerned, because you get touchy feely, and messy and splodgy as well! It promises to be an ecxellent weekend, with lots of new and fresh ideas from a very vibrant talented lady, and I get to spend it with my friends from Touch of Craft too, Kay, Amanda and Rosina.

I've been messing about making some flowers from the Craft Stamper article using grungepaper and the stitchel stamps. They have come up really well, but with the snow, I haven't taken any pictures as the light hasn't been great. I intend to use them on my next canvas project, so I'll blog them soon. The snow here has been rotten, as I know it has everywhere. Our roads are flanked by deep dykes either side, and this morning, I passed three cars in the dyke, one of which was being pulled out while the police attended. A sobering sight. My daughter went back to her boyfriend's house today, on the first leg of her journey back to Uni, and I was very relieved to know that she had arrived safely. Wherever you are, keep safe and warm, Judith x

This sounds like a terrific class Judith. I'm very envious and shall look forward to seeing what you create.
I want to have a go at those flowers too, they are on my to do list which is getting longer by the day.
Stay safe in the snow, isn't it just soooo cold!!!!

That class sounds terrific just as Lisa said. Can't wait to see the results too.

I've just decided, ditto Lisa's comment, Lol!

And a little add-on. I can fully appreciate the stress that must accompany any journey on a road covered with snow and dykes on either side. What a nightmare! Take care Judith. I just had a thought. Are the chickies okay?

Sounds brilliant, lucky you!

Plenty of snow in Notts, but we're coping pretty well. I'm getting lots of exercise (which I certainly need!!) as I'm walking everywhere I can so I don't have to get the car out! The challenge will be to keep it up once the snow has gone! x
