winter art classes

call me crazy but I like the stillness after a snowfall...everything is white and shimmery.  The snow we've had lately has been very light and fine.  It looks like someone dumped a bottle of diamond dust glitter over everything.  Perfect time to enjoy some studio time. 
Except I'm busy writing gardening articles and preparing for a spring lecture.  I write about 12 months of articles in Jan and Feb for my business.  I try to get all the writing done now because, well, for the gardening season I'd rather be outdoors than in.  Writing, writing, writing.  Cabin fever hasn't set in yet (that doesn't happen until end of Feb) but I'm in need of a break.  My hands want a break from typing and they want to get into some ink. 

If you're looking for a break I'd recommend adding some art to your day.  I invite you to take a look at these upcoming classes at Artist & Display: 

The first class is January 26th at 1:00pm.  We'll make a cool (pun intended) snowflake card.  I'll be going over basic rubber stamping techniques and we'll get to play with alcohol inks, punches, and stickles. 
Next class is February 1st at 10:00am.  In this class we'll make a trio of Valentine themed treat boxes.  These mini boxes can be filled with a small note or some sweet treats.  It's an easy template to work with and the best part is all of the supplies we get to use to decorate them! 
Finally there's a FREE make-n-take on Sunday February 2nd from 1-3pm.  Come anytime during these hours to make a Valentine card using (drum roll please) alcohol inks!  (really, you didn't see that coming?)
here's a link to the store for all of the details. Artist and Display
already planning some studio work tomorrow...but for now I'm heading back to article writing.
