I rarely comment here Pam, but eagerly gobble up every post you've ever written for years. I had the pleasure of meeting you at Silver Bella several yrs ago- I took your holly wreath class...where you brought all your beautiful journals. I remember just wanting to cozy up in the corner by myself for a few days with your journals. The ONLY other paid online class ive ever taken was Remains of the day...( way back when) and I absolutely loved it. I've sort of fallen off the art journal wagon but if there ever comes a day when you offer your online class I' m doing a big ole cannonball right back into it!
