This has been an incredible year.  Every day for me, made more glorious because of YOU, the incredible, beautiful souls who have embraced my classes, teaching and artful adventures.

It is with great joy, that i celebrate our friendship and creativity ...i am "gifting you" this FREE CLASS, to inspire your holiday handwriting, packaging and creative gift giving in a golden palette.  EVERYONE is invited, bring your friends!

Teddi, My sweet Golden Retriever has been patiently waiting for you to arrive.  She's all decked out in her "golden bling" and will be our honorary class mascot, just because she's GOLDEN!


CLASS FORMAT:  It's FREE!  True story.  No payment, no passwords, just come visit this "blog classroom" anytime and view each lesson at your leisure. FIVE glamourous golden lessons are NOW OPEN!

Here are the materials i will be using in class.  Hopefully you can raid your stash and be good to go!   Create at your own pace.
