Copic Coloring Fun!

Hope you are enjoying your weekend. I had a terrific time sharing Copic coloring tips at my first Copic Class yesterday at the Peddler's Den! Tonya has a lovely store with lots of fun goodies including Copics, Nestabilities, Great Impressions stamps and lots more!

This first class was all about the basics of coloring, blending and shading.
It's been quite a while since I've taught a stamping class, but I really enjoyed sharing about Copics, meeting new people and teaching again. Thought I'd share my cards from the class. I tried to keep things simple as to focus on the coloring, but wanted everyone to take home some finished cards.

I'll be teaching my Copics 102 Class on August 8th at the Peddler's Den, where I'll share about coloring images black and white, coloring skin and hair, stamping with Copic ink and doodling with Copics. I think I've got a lot to do in the next month. ;) Thanks for visiting today! Warmly~ Patti

Friends Who Make Good Times Great

Last week I hosted a small, casual open house for the new Stampin' Up! Idea Book. I've been a Demonstrator since 2002. My first three years, I really worked my business and along the way hosted over a hundred Stamp Camps, classes, Open Houses, events and workshops, while building a Downline. I meet numerous women in all different walks of life and now have the pleasure of calling many of them friends.

As my life changed, my children grew and I began working a full-time job in 2006, I stepped back from my business and started hosting a monthly club with some of those friends, a delightful group of woman that I enjoy stamping with. They've kept me afloat as a Demonstrator, but more importantly have inspired me in my stamping and encouraged me in life. They are definitely friends who make good times great!

In just a few short months our club will end and this time I will be hanging up my SU! apron for good. As I do, I want to thank these women for their friendships and the great times we have shared! To Amy, Char, Cherie, Priscilla, Sherry Lee, Susan, Teresa and Theresa, many thanks and much love!

I look forward to what lies ahead as we stretch our stamping wings! Blessings~ Patti
