    Your page is done extremely well. If I still lived in the San Diego area I would definitely be interested in taking classes from you. But an 18 hour drive is just not feasible. 😉

    FIVE STARS. Hey everyone–you really should try Zentangling. Very empowering. Opened up a whole new world of design that I can blend with my mixed media interests as well as quilting. Char is very open and supportive and is doing lots in the studio besides Zentangling.

    Char. Hoping to come to Gridiculous on Friday. Surgery went ok but still probably need an antibiotic. Also looking at the Medallion class on the 19th as we’ll as trying to get into Tea Time and Rock Out open groups. Going to the Art Journal class today that is starting at the Methodist Church. Taking all my Zentangle stuff to share as well as your business cards. I think those folks will be looking for local class to go to.

    Is there a way to hold a spot in a class without paying at that time? Sometimes have to wait for the first of the month, you know how that goes! My drawing/painting/mixed media room is coming along well You will have to come over end of February/March to see. We start tearing out carpet and putting in Murphy bed second week of Feb.
