So I would love to start this blog by telling you how well I am but, but thats just not going to happen, so we will quickly skip over that bit.

Instead I will tell you all about the fabulous day we are having here at Art from the Heart headquarters. It is one of our quarterly preview days. The day when we showcase all the classes coming up in the next few months. All the tutors have worked like mad to get all the samples ready. We celebrate by holding taster workshops, drinking tea and eating delicious cupcakes all day long.

Heres some of todays highlights…

The lovely Father Andrew

willing students

Teresa's "to die for" cupcakes

Samples galore

Sandra eagerly awaiting her class to file in.

The sample they made in my class.

I was also the lucky recipient of people bearing gifts, gotta love birthdays !

And wait till you see what the lovely Liz brought me. She never ceases to amaze me with the things she finds.

Have you ever seen a journal as big as this??? its wider than my hand. !!

Surprisingly in the middle of this accounts ledger is this drawing. Why on earth it is there is beyond me, but I'm so glad it is.

Hmmmm wonder if it will work on Johnny Depp.!!!!

I'll keep you informed..

Enjoy xx

I'm sorry you're still not feeling up to snuff...but you look MA-VA-LOUS!! I'd love to take classes at AFTH but alas it's a far commute from central Texas. The samples look wonderful. So glad to see a blog post, too.

I am woefully behind in blog reading, so have missed your posts about your health & all. I pray you feel better quickly!! Sending cyber hugs & healing prayers!

The preview day looks like it was so much fun!! Eating cupcakes all day long has to be fun!! teehee.... :) Those looked too pretty to eat (almost!) Gorgeous project samples too! That old vintage journal looks cool and I wonder who did that drawing in it too. Very cool pressie! I'm looking forward to seeing you again when you're here in North Carolina in April.
