But guess what - I CAN'T RESIST!!!
So, this summer, I have signed up for a one-week class over at Big Picture Classes that is being taught by Amy Powers of Inspireco. It is a Happy go Lucky Stitchalong. We are going to stitch in a grid pattern all the things that make us happy. I've seen some of Amy's stitching projects and I can't wait to get started on my own. Below is a photo from Amy's site of a work in progress.
I know how to do some embroidering but I'm hoping to learn more techniques and gather more ideas and for $10.00 for the class - I thought, "why not!?!".
I'm also in the process of trying to register for a class on Paperclay sculpting over at Artful Gathering. Do yourself a favor and if you haven't checked out this site you are not going to believe all the amazing classes being offered this summer. I wish I had the time and the money to take each and every one!
The class I am originally signing up for will be a six week class and will be taught by Christy Meyers of CC's Whimsies. I've admired Christy's work for a long time and can hardly wait to give this a try.

My first foray into paperclay sculpting was over a year ago when I attended Ann-Denise's Gurlie class at the Paper Crown.
Then, this past February, when I attended her Valentine Makery, we made a Valentine Paper Clay Doll:
I had so much fun making these dolls and I keep imagining how fun it will be to learn how to sculpt a face on a doll. Have I mentioned that I attend a doll club here in Tulsa?
The Dolling Dames is primarily a group of ladies (and one man) that create mostly cloth dolls. But any of you that know me, know I can't just limit myself to one medium! ;)
Tomorrow night is my live class at the Paper Crown with Jackie - can't wait!
