Terry Medaris class was today

Today was the day Terry Medaris came to town. Terry is a artist and art teacher from Arizona who uses Prismacolor pencils. He comes to teach classes at Cat's Craft Cupboard. Here's what the classes were: Class One was all about choosing and blending colors together. Class Two was working with the Prismas on dominoes, ceramic tiles and heat shrink plastic. Class Three was about using a light source and shading in your colored pencil art. I took the third class - again! I took it a year ago, but I didn't practice enough, so I forgot how to do it. I will have to practice a lot to get it right, but I had fun in the class. Here are the stamps I bought today. Some of them are new images that are not yet in the catalog or on his website. I met up with Tami (teabear), Julie (lostluggage) and Johanna (justjohanna) for lunch and then we went shopping at the Scrapping Cottage. After that, Tami went back to class and Julie, Johanna and I went to her house for a little order filling and playtime with Jake. I took Jake some cars, his favorite thing. I did not realize he had SO MANY! I do not know the exact number, but he must have at least a thousand, I don't know. We're talking Matchbox cars. Baskets and baskets full of cars. It was a fun day, especially since I could spend it with my friends.

Oh, you knew this would get me going. How I wish I could have spent my weekend there.

Drool! Drool! Drool! Drool! I am so jealous. I am actually trying to figure out how to drive across two states and take his class in Peoria or St. Louis in August. If there is a will, there's a way.

Can't wait to see what you do with those stamps you purchased.
