Diane wins Mega Millions

Diane Cook Wins the Lottery!!

Just kidding!
April Fools!

But, I have to say that my friendship with Diane 
is worth millions to me!

Diane is this week's featured artist for our upcoming on line retreat
Artful Gathering.

I live in California in the winters, and Diane lives in Texas. Those states aren't exactly close.
But after Diane came out to CA for a three day workshop we took with Stephanie Lee years ago, we were best buds from the first minute we met!

So when it was announced that there was an amazing jewelry art retreat coming to Houston, I got spend some time with Diane.  We were both selected to teach.  So between that, we got to eat and play, and...

 take days of workshops together! 
We had too much fun. 
Do you see Bevo the steer?  Diane brought him to CA for a gift, so he got to go back to Texas for a visit!

Diane is one of the most generous, kindest women you will ever meet.
And here is your chance to do just that.
You get an opportunity to take two on line classes with Diane this coming summer in the Artful Gathering on line workshops.

The first one is 
Session One
June 6 - July 17 

Session Two is 
July 15 - August 25

For each class, she will give you a supply list, and she is selling some kits as well. She, and all the artists, will be available for the entire six week session to help and guide you through the process of making each project.

Please visit Diane for more information, and to get the next secret word for the blog hop!
