LOL Linda, letā€™s get together and make a bakers dozen togetheršŸ˜˜
Geri, I just love it when things fall together. It feels so good when it happens too. Iā€™m glad that you enjoyed it.
Awe thanks Rachel. I knew when we met that we had a lot in common. It would be so great to take another class together again sometime soon.
Karthikha, thank you so much. Itā€™s always nice to meet another paperholic
Terry, You're so very welcome. Iā€™m so glad you like them. I love this community and all the friends Iā€™ve made in it. Iā€™ve learned so much from and appreciate the opportunity to give back.
Shel with your skills I know you could! I def recommend watching Paulaā€™s video to learn the folds. She makes it easy. Canā€™t wait to see your take on them.
Jean, Thats one of the things I love about mixed media, being able to take something youā€™ve learned from one craft and applying it to another. You never know how it going to work out and sometimes you get a wonderful surprise.
Aimeslee, I especially love working with the thin tissue Washi paper for that very reason. Always happy to share. Hugs...
LOL Sara, 4 am is definitely not the time to try, although Iā€™ve been know to be up at 3...... if you do please share. Iā€™d love to see your take.
Awe thank you Anne. I enjoy making things that have motion in them. Iā€™m planning on taking the next step and making a Chinese Thread Book as soon as I get some free time. If youā€™ve never seen one, they are incredible.
Vicky-Anne. You just made my day. Thank you so much. I recommend that you follow the link to Paula Beardsall Kriegā€™s tutorial. Itā€™s in real time and I found it easy to follow. Please share if you make one. Iā€™d love to see it.
Ohhh, it makes me so happy to hear you say that. It would make a great present for grandkids. My Grandmother had a wallet that was based in a similar design and I still remember playing with it.
Thank you. Iā€™m always looking for new ways to mix it up.
I bet that you two would make some beautiful pouches. Please share if you došŸ˜Š
Carol, Who said anything about precision? šŸ˜‚ I think the trick is to make it look like youā€™ve got a lot of precision. ...
Terri, Iā€™m so glad Iā€™m not the only one. No matter how hard I try I always seem to have ink on my hands. Even when I wear gloves, I somehow manage. Hmm maybe itā€™s osmosisšŸ˜‚. Iā€™m glad you liked the boxesšŸ™‚
I love getting handmade gifts, but making them is even better. Thanks.
It really didnā€™t feel ambitious at the theme. Once I got into the groove, one thing led to another and things just flowed.... someday weā€™re going to have to get together again and make that happen!

Thanks so much Jackie for all of your kind words! I really do appreciate them. I never imagined that I would ever have my own stencils so it really is a pinch me kind of moment! Bear Hug back!
Awe thanks my friend! There is plenty that I do that doesnā€™t make the cut. But I consider them to be building blocks. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.... it also helps to surround yourself with some fantastically creative people like yourself. Youā€™ve sparked some pretty good ideasšŸ˜˜.
Thank you so much. I used to do embroidery all the time as a kid and Iā€™m having fun rediscovering it now. Thanks so much for your feedback.
I so enjoyed meeting you Peg and hope our paths cross again.
Rachel, thank you. Iā€™ll have you know that I loved your panel so much that I went out a purchased a whole set of the Luminous paints. Started playing with them last night. So fun! Really glad to have met you. And if you ever go to Brimfield......šŸ˜Š
Tracey, thank you for the wonderful comment. I really appreciate it. Gwen has always had a huge influence on my work. She an absolutely amazing artist who is so generous in sharing techniques. Iā€™m just loving her BoHo zgrunge style.
Kitty, thank you. I think we could have spent a whole week in class and still not have learned all of Gwenā€™s secrets. It was fun meeting you too. Hopefully weā€™ll cross paths again someday.
