heart strings at home

I could not have chosen a better group of ladies to spend my day with, last Saturday,
for my first in home class,
that wasn't a one on one special request.
The beauty of it began with the number of ladies who were able to join me.
Three.  Not only, but actually.
Maybe that sounds small, but not for my home.
And certainly not for the students.
What they enjoyed was a day packed with much learning and laughter,
which included a day full of my undivided (except by 3) attention.
 I sat at our breakfast table and was able to give short demos,
which included talks on my design process.
They were able to pull up a chair without feeling crowded.
It makes me happy just sitting here thinking about it.
And, 
they were so excited about all the 
new and wonderful tips and techniques I was able to share with them.
Since then I have been busy recording/editing/taking pictures for my classes at
Artful Gathering,
the first being my Heart Strings class which will be part of Session One this summer.
BTW, if you haven't noticed, but maybe you have,
my intro video link is up near the top on my right sidebar.
It gives you a glimpse into my studio, as small as it is!
And,
if you'd like to hear a bit about a little creative process of mine,
that has spanned almost four years,
tomorrow I will have a guest post on
Love My Art Jewelry.
It will explain how I arrived here....
