I am back in full force.....Welcome Fall!!



This is a very fitting post...One year ago today was the last time I blogged. I left not really knowing why, I just did.  Maybe because of Facebook...That venue can make you pretty lazy and not give as much thought to your posts as you do in blogging. 
So there,  I laid it in FB's lap...LOL!!!
More blog less facebook!
I went to bed last night thinking how much I missed blogging and the blogging community and all the wonderfulness of it! So I shall begin this post with
 a Welcome to Fall and to new paths and inspirations!

So on with the show........


I am working on a multi-mixed media doll.......She is going to be delicious when I am done with her! I will take pics along the way just so you can see her progress! She will be a raffle gift for a stupendous event that I am putting on at the end of October!!
 I will try to keep my posts short and sweet, time is always of the essence!

Thank you , if you have been stopping by and checking in and if you are new to my blog 
WELCOME...I look forward to inspiring you!
Much Muchness, Ann-Denise

2013 31 Wishes Project and 2012 Memories

 
 
Hello Everyone and Happy Summer!
Life has been busy and preparations for my nostalgic event are underway. I thought I would give everyone a peek at this years project. With out giving too much of her away, she is fabulous and really is a treat to create. She does measure at appox 15" tall and is a work of art you'll treasure for time to come!!
Last years event was a wonderful time and I hope new and old friends will join in on the fun!
Please do not hesitate to ask any questions and swaps will be getting underway soon, so join in as fast as you can!
Also below the pictures, I have included a slide show of last years
event!
Good Times!
 

31 Wishes Art Project
 
This project is the best yet and so many techniques used on her, which
if you are a paint, chalk, doodle, textile junkie this is a project for you!
I invite anyone with desire to get creative and experience a holiday event filled with art, laughs and lots of treats to come and join 31 Wishes A Nostalgic Halloween event!
And if Halloween is not your thing come anyway.....your project is your own creation...She would make a beautiful Harvest Fest Doll!

March & April Workshops

Hello Everyone!

I haven't been a very good blogger lately and I do apologize to all of you who come by to see what's going on or just happen to stumble upon me.........I seem to have this battle between Face Book and Blogger and sometimes I think the convenience of FB wins....I am not happy with that...Face Book has turned into a dull drum place and it lacks the inspiration that blogs seem to posses, so with that I think I am coming home.....back to blogging, let's see how it goes!

I have tried to be super proactive with my local workshops and putting up a calender to give those of you time to plan and try to attend some of them. Now you all know how much I love Paper Crown in Oklahoma City...It's my home away from home and such a lovely place to be inspired! I have also tried something new...teaching small workshops in my home.....Now theses are not big events like my past parties that I have hosted Like 31 Wishes, smaller and very simple with a class limit. Workshops with a small lunch! If you are in the area or a local to the Ft. Worth area please register for a class,you will be thankful you did! Also I have made a decision ...only one big party this year...31 Wishes!...My home life, husband, kids, home improvements,and my health  needs to take a front seat and my parties are so important to me that I can only host one this year and do it really well!

So here is the March & April class repertoire, pay close attention to location dates and times!
Also to register for My Paper Crown Workshops you MUST call the store directly (405) 848-2389 and let Cindy the Owner know you would like to register for my workshops. As for my No Place Like Home classes, either send me an email or log onto my Face Book page and you can reserve your spot there as well!

Thanks Everyone.....I feel better now, Also your comments are so appreciated!
