Mistletoe gift card holders

Sorry I haven't posted recently, I have had a little carpal tunnel that has been acting up, but that will be taken care of soon, my doctor is going to do surgery starting with the left on Dec.22, 2010 then I think its about 6wks before he will do the right. I don't mind, the pain has been bad this flare up, so its time to fix it. Anyway enough about that.

Copic Certified

I am Copic Certified!!!
I was in Richmond on Monday for my Copic certification class, if you ever get the chance to take this class with Colleen Schaan do it, she is a wonderful teacher, she had Beate Johns with her because it was a big class and we learned so much, these 2 ladies were great. I really enjoyed doing this, now just have to practice more, met some great ladies, hey, Bev, Lorie, and Shirley. Tam was there she is certified too! They gave us great take home goodies, and the ideas were wonderful, watching Beate color while she was there was something, I want to color as good as she does and with practice I will get there. I got a few pictures that I will post later.
