Each week I will announce the next featured blog for you to visit, and there you will find a new secret word or words that you will need to collect along your way from blog to blog. Once you have collected all the words from each blog you visit, they will work out to say a very artsy phrase. Here are the rules:
  1. For your chance to win, you must collect all the secret code words and submit them upon the final destination blog in May. A random drawing will be conducted from those contestants who have submitted the complete collection of secret words!
  2. Three winners will be randomly drawn. One for the $200.00 e-card to Jerry's, and two runner's up for the 25.00 e-card to Jerrys.
Week by week we'll go from one blog to the next!
Remember to collect all the secret words. These words will work out to say a very artful phrase, and you'll need all the pieces to be eligible for the final prize drawings!

AND....

"Clara" and I are getting more organized for the upcoming workshop

WRAPTURE

at Gilding the Lily!


Isn't she sweet? My little Clara antique suitcase is just the perfect size to store my beautiful sari silks, on cabinet cards. It will make it so much fun for you to choose which silks you want to adorn your project with!  Thanks for the idea Diane Cook!! That was just the inspiration I needed.


Thanks for looking.  See you soon.

love and hugs,

Artful Gathering Classes

INTRODUCTION OF 
MY ARTFUL GATHERING CLASSES

Coming this summer...
to a computer near you!

Click the link below and you get to see my smiling face!!


Two classes

1.  Romantic Relic Frames

To read more, please go to Artful Gathering here:

Start with sheet metal, end up with an amazing hand made frame, to cherish forever!  I'll show you every step of the way. Fun, fun, fun!





2.  Over coming the Fear of Fire

Please go here to Artful Gathering and read more about this class.

If you've had the desire to operate your butane torch that has been bought, but hiding in your work area, this is the class for you.  Or maybe you want to use mixed gases in your work, but don't know what to buy?  I hope to answer many of these questions for you in this class, as well as show applicable uses for each torch, as well as safety issues.


Registration is now open for Artful Gathering.

I will be available via email for the entire 6 weeks of each workshop!! So all questions may be addressed as you take the class, very cool!

I hope to see you in class.

Love and hugs,
Riki
