Exciting things are happening! I can't believe it is true but I've been chosen as one of Prima's Educators!! I can hardly believe it myself and am so beyond EXCITED!!! I feel so honored to be among the talented ladies of this team! This is truly a dream come true! It's really true (I had to pinch myself to be sure... OW!) and it says so here and here! WOW!
I'll be joining the following girls on this journey:
Jamie Lynn Dougherty
ALL of them are talented and wonderful teachers and some I know personally (one I live right around the corner from!). I'm humbled and honored to be able to have the opportunity to teach using some of my FAVORITE products! I promise to create fun and unique projects for my classes and hope I can inspire you all to have fun with art media along with Prima goodies!
If you are interested in arranging a class, just email me! You can find my email under "About Me" in the upper right corner.
The school year is almost over for my kids and my day job, but the summer is just starting and I hope many opportunities are going to keep me busy! I am so very excited!

This month is all about TRUTH at Scrapbooking from the Inside Out kits... This kit is awesome! I say that every month but this one is full of some of my favorite things... a template, hexagons, blues and greens, and the spark of truth... yep, it's one of my favs! Here is one of the projects that I completed with this kit!
Am I really a good artist? Do I have what it takes to make me happy? Those tiny lies in my head try to deter me from the truth. Often I find myself seeking inside myself for confirmation that I am indeed enough. There's a mean voice that yells over the gentle reminders. I've always sought to fit in, to be accepted and it's that part that cringes away from the different and strange. I know that I should embrace my unique thoughts but all those doubts hold me back... I am good enough!!! I have to stop over-thinking things. Let it flow... just be me. It's really control I crave. Someday I'll be comfortable in my own skin. I'll be happy to exist and be proud of all I've accomplished and learned. I will be content with being me...
Scrapbooking From the Inside Out and get it!
