I left a hint in my Tag #3 post that there was something special coming to someone who spent time sharing their thoughts here in the CLASSroom :-D
It is fun to surprise someone who gave of their time with the blog candy above! Using the random number generator we just counted the number of comments that were left during our mini-tag series and...
Tona you are our winner! Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your snail mail address.
I also wanted to take the time to say some thank you's to three special ladies here in the CLASSroom. For those who get our newsletter this is "repeat" news, but I wanted to make certain that each of you have the opportunity to share your thoughts with these very talented artists and wonderful women! So please feel free to leave a comment right here on this post for these three women. Following is the information I shared in our newsletter. (If you would like to receive our newsletter it is simple to sign up for - go to our home page and in the upper right hand section you will find a box that says "Join Our Mailing List". Simply enter your email address and you will automatically receive our newsletter each month.)
With this new year you have also probably noticed changes happening in the CLASSroom. It is time to say a HUGE thank you to three very special ladies - Cindy Lyles, Debbie Olson and Lisa Strahl! Life has become super-busy for all three and so it is time to say good-bye to them as regular contributors in the CLASSroom.
Cindy has become increasingly healthy and fit - congratulations Cindy, you inspire me to try and get myself back on track to becoming healthier! As well she operates her own store, StarLitStudio. How she fit us into her busy schedule is completely beyond me - LOL!
Debbie, as you well know, is over-the-top involved in many companies. With the new commitment as Intermediate Certification instructor many of you will hopefully have the opportunity to attend her classes as she flies around the United States.
Lastly, but certainly not least is my dear friend Lis. Lisa is now working for a local shop in B.C., demonstrating and teaching on a regular basis. If you are ever in the Vancouver area you will most definitely want to take a trip out to Be Creative - the stamp store she works at.
You will all be sorely missed and I am grateful to each of you for the talent you have shared with our customers over the past several years - THANK YOU!
We hope that the changes that we are working on will not leave too many holes! As you have noticed we have started bringing in some guest artists - we have some WONDERFUL plans in store to make certain that we meet your needs. So stay tuned, I think you will be pleasantly surprised! :-D
