My first class!!!

I know it's a tad bit early to be thinking about Christmas... but then again... it's NEVER to early to think about Christmas!! I am so excited (and a little nervous) to announce my first ever official art class! I will be having it in my home on Saturday, December 4th. It will be an all day class and participants will go home with a completed Snowman/Girl at the end of the day. You will be able to customize your piece however you want because I will have lots of goodies to play with.
The fee for this class will be $80.00 and will include everything you need, although there are a few tools I would love for you to  bring along if you have them.
I am really hoping that many of the Arizona gals who have blogs or just enjoy reading them, will sign up so we can all meet and have a fun play day!!! I'm also hoping some of my Texas BBF's will be able to come and play too!!! (hint, hint)
If you are interested, please send me an email and I will tell you more about it.

I hope you can come and play!!!

Karen,

By the end of February I'll be sick of snow but I really like snowfolks. Yours are so cute I wish I could hop on a plane and drop in. Good luck with your first class! By the way snowmen or snowfolks are not just for the holidays. Here in PA we use them during Christmas and as winter decorations for January into February.

Sounds and looks like a delightful project Karen.
I am sure you will have a fabulous turnout and a wonderful time.

Oh Karen. I would love to come to your class. I just don't think I can swing it with Christmas just around the corner. Maybe if you do a spring one I could catch that one. I KNOW it will be wonderful!

Barbara Jean said...

Those are ADORABLE!!
You'll be great.
Teaching is no more than sharing what we have learned, and encouraging others as they learn it.
Just be your cheerful, sweet self. Everyone will have a ball. =)

hugs and blessings

How fun! I wish I was closer, those are just too cute. Great class idea!

Meri Wiley said...

Hi Karen,

Wow, how cool, and congratulations....I wish you much, much, success in your endeavor. I wish I could come, but unfortunately the same situation prevents me as the one where I was going to take the class at Mystic Paper. I was so looking forward to meeting you in person. I really hope we can figure out a way to accomplish this. As I mentioned before, hopefully we can get a spring boutique together for all us crafty women here in Arizona. Take care, and have fun.....I know it will be a success because you are amazingly talented.

Hugs,
Meri

"oh the weather outside is frightful but inside it's so delightful....." just getting in the mood. The class looks wonderful, sign me up!!!! Do you just charge through paypal?

KayC. said...

I was told it was never to early for Christmas when I made a post a day or so ago about a Santa that I made. I, too, wish that I lived closer so I could attend your class. I sounds like so much fun! I also wanted to tell you that I made some pumpkins following your tutorial...thanks for sharing. They where easy to make and I think mine turned out pretty good. You'll have to go check them out @ annaclotandme.blogspot.com

Lynn Richards said...

Hooray for you, Karen!!!
Best of luck...

I just moved from Az. to Idaho! Dang! I would join you in a heart beat. It sounds like fun. BTW I made your pumpkins and I adore them. I used our dimensions for the first one which I thought was big enough, and made several smaller ones. They are really easy and beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing your idea an pattern.
Good luck with your class.

Good luck!

Oooh I wish I could come, Karen! Your snowmen are adorable, but most of all, I would love to enjoy your company and that of other lovely bloggers! I could bring some Italian Panettone ;))

Miss Sandy said...

Sure wish I lived in AZ, I'd for sure sign up! Love the snow people, so adorable and what a bonus to get to play in your studio and tour your fabulous home!

Love the blog design you did for my sweet friend Sonya! Have a great week.

Tarnished and Tattered said...

Karen,
I am so excited for you! Your first class, yeah! I warn you, it's addicting. Charlene says she is addicted to taking the classes, well I'm addicted to teaching them. It is so rewarding to share everything you know with a group of like minded girls (or boys). And to see them with a complete project that was inspired by you....well it's amazing. Your a very nurturing person so you will be a natural. Wish I could come, unfortunately December with 3 kids is just crazy time. But my thoughts will be there, & probably a few of my friends! Lisa

sweet dreams said...

ALL OF YOUR STUFF ARE AMAZING!BRAVO!GOOD LUCK.

Corie Kline said...

Tammy said...

How adorable! Hope you have a huge turnout. Wish I lived closer to join in on the fun!

Hey Karen,

I'm so glad you stopped by my blog for a visit. I've thought of you often since TCC. Much success to you for your first class ~ those little snow ladies are precious! Wish I lived closer to attend your class and have some fun with you.

Stay in touch and so will I. Oh, I have seen some very lovely blogs you have designed recently! Nice going Girl.

Ciao bella,
