Dick Blick Demo, etc

While I sitting here waiting for the carpet cleaners to show up, supposely sometime between an hour ago and forever, I need to belly up and post. No silly, I don't have new art to show off (this week) but its been a busy month and I do have an announcement:

I'll be demoing Copic Markers this Sunday, May 3 from noon to 2pm at the Dick Blick Wheaton, IL store! Come on out and say hi! Let me know if you would be interested in a Copic class.

In other news, Cindy and the rest of the family had a delightful Easter. The Bunny brought her a nice little basket of goodies. Cindy loves cookies and bunnies, in no particular order.

I celebrated my 29th birthday again this month too. Cake was had by all, and some had more cake than others, right Spunky?

I traveled for Spellbinders twice in April, I met some great people at CKC St. Louis, we taught for 2 days. I also traveled to a trade event in San Francisco, I didn't get to see the city, but it was a beautiful weekend on the Bay!

Then I got a magazine in the mail.
Hmm, that's strange, I don't have a subscription to the Stampers Sampler Catch Up Issue. What's this? An art comp? Good golly, I've been published! They love me, they really love me! Ok, maybe they don't love me, but they like me enough for page 14 at the top! Thanks Stampington!!!

And a series of these appeared when I downloaded photos. Strange, I've never seen this happen in real life, must have been some kind of homework assignment...Now that I know you can do it, Sparky, its going to be a long summer! buhahaha!

I discovered a new scrapbooking site, Paperee, to "see, share and behold paper happiness." Excellent, I should fit right in! I started an I {heart} Spellbinder's Nestabilities group there, and put up a card challenge. Prizes are involved! Go check it out!
Do you have flair? You can find this flair on Facebook, just search for Nestabilities or Spellbinders when you send flair!

"Dangerous" Dog Email

I received this email. Bully Breeds fit the profile of dangerous dogs in some people's minds, but we all know that depends on the individual circumstances. Proper training and a loving hand work wonders with any breed.

I did feel somewhat obligated to pass this important information along, none the less. Be assured this is NOT Cindy or Buster, or Spunky or Sparky. This COULD happen to any family, it could even still happen to my own. Heed the warning:

If you are an owner of a dog that belongs to a 'dangerous breed' category and you also have a small child please take this as a warning. Don't leave your dog with the child unattended under any circumstances.

It only took a moment for this to happen:

Seriously, that's not my sofa! Poor puppy!
