Good evening Friends, and thanks for hanging in there with me while I've been goofing off! After we got the sick pc home, hooked back up, DD flew up for a few days. Needless to say, visiting with her got a higher priority than anything else around here! <g>. We had fun, did some shopping - going out to eat, just having some good family time.
Today I had a super great class getting my Intermediate Copic Certification. Wonderful teacher, Cindy Lawrence (here). Learned some different & more complex ways to shade, assess light sourcing, and a bit of 'color theory'. It was held locally -for me anyway- so no hotel bills. It was totally worth the cost of the class, and I left feeling as though I had learned a good bit that I hope will enhance my copic skills. It had been a while since I had the Standard Certification class, so some of the techniques being taught now, were different from the way I had learned.
Hopefully I will be able to get back on track with making some cards - sigh - as we'll be going away beginning next Sunday. First a family reunion on my Dad's side of the family, being held at his Home Place (Southern speak for where your family roots are - and actually where he was born at home) - about 2 hrs away from our area. Then we're planning to leave the reunion, head to Washington, DC to meet our best friend, and see some of the sights in Washington. Primarily the Smithsonian. We've been several times in the past, but it was always a 'time limited' visit. This time we have 4 days, so I will be perfectly happy to visit a different section of the museum each day. As DH says, I have to stop and read every word on every sign at an exhibit, so I don't get through a museum as fast as most people do. <g>. So I gotta get at least a couple cards finished to post. Don't give up on me....I'll eventually get back in the groove.
Until then, have a Blessed Sunday, and enjoy whatever it is that you might have planned. Come again to visit & we'll 'sit & chat a spell'. Now that I have my Fav Bookmarks back, I can get back to visiting you as well. As always, thanks for stopping in tonight , and many hugs.
