A Few Goodies and A Give Away......

(FREE IMAGE)

So sorry to have gone MIA again but I have been one busy beaver getting everything perfect for my Artist Class tutorial. Let me tell you it has been a huge undertaking, not putting together the class instructions, BUT the technical side has been a challenge to say the least. I think I need an Everything Dummies Need to Know About Technical Stuff guide! I am every bit as tuckered out as the sweet little gal in the image above. Feel free to save her and use her in your art.

I won't bore you with the details, let's just say I have about snatched myself bald. Luckily I have a computer guru son who bailed me out and this afternoon Mary will have my contribution in her hot little hands and I will swoon with relief.

Talk about coming in under the wire, the Artist Class starts tomorrow! I wanted to share a few more goodies from the class with you. What can get better than books and cake? How about a cake made out of books? Look at this yummy project by Martha!
Martha once made a Christmas tree from book pages that is to die for, you must visit her fantastic blog, Vintage Trifles.

Also, Joy is going to show us some tips and tricks with digital art to make ATC's. She will be using elements and backgrounds from Mary's French Dictionary collection and is including a mini digital kit you can use.
Obviously I need all the digi help I can get and I will be so happy to learn some simple skills in this area. I can't wait! It is not too late to sign up. If you use my discount code, quillcottage, you will save $10.00 off the tuition price.

Now, I'd like to offer a little goodie of my own to one of my blog readers. It's time for a give away! My project for the class is an Autumnal Banner. I will be giving away the sample banner I made for the class!
To sign up just leave a comment on this post. You do not have to have a blog to enter. There are no shipping restrictions. I'll leave the sign up open all week, posting a winner on Saturday, October 31, 2009.

Now, I am off to continue to sort through all my own goodies and get them organized on the new closet shelving, making room for more fun stuff in the room! I'll see you on the flip side of the weekend. I hope you all have a happy Saturday!

Blessings,
Miss Sandy

I would like to do that class but all my Christmas gifts are handpainted etc. this year so I have no time to put in anything else. I would like to register for the give-away. Maybe you all will do another tutorial.

Miss Sandy what beautiful projects all of you have submitted for the artist class! I love your gorgeous Autumn banner that you made, how beautiful it would look across my fireplace :) I have always loved your art work, it so reminds me of Dawn of The Feathered Nest...your styles are both so beautiful focusing on nature and all its beauty. I have a piece of her artwork and hope to one day of one of yours too. Rose

I'll try my luck one more time ;-). Goodl luck on teaching on Art class. I won't be joining as I still have to many projects on my mind not to speak of supplies waiting. I even didn't go to the flea market for that reason this morning, so that really says something. Have a nice Sunday!

Bonita said...

Oh, yes! I'd love to win that pretty banner!

Glad you got your class stuff worked out. I know how frustrating it can be trying to figure out the techie end. That's why God gave me a son to do it for me.

Joanie said...

The art class sounds wonderful! How busy you must be right now... So glad you have technical support available. I am often challenged myself.

Autumn in my favorite time of year, so please count me in on the giveaway! It's absolutely lovely!

Abundant blessings upon your class and each day of this great adventure of life; living it to its fullest...
