A great day in October (part 1 )

Two weeks ago, my friend and I had the privilege of taking classes from the wonderful and talented Wendy Vecchi of Studio 490 fame. Please, if you are unfamiliar with Wendy , Stampers Anonymous or Ranger Ink not walk to her website at : you will be amazed at the creative mind that is Wendy Vecchi. I have been following her blog for quite awhile now and could not wait to sign up for classes at the Queen's Ink : in Savage Maryland. We have no local scrapbooking stores, only chain craft stores so it is quite the treat to visit such a beautiful store that is literally packed to the rafters with treats for the eye as well as every supply needed to carry out any artistic vision. Love the people, love the store... LOVE this hobby.

We signed up to take two classes. The first, a great tag book of techniques.We inked and stamped and perfect pearled our way through four hours of FUN and had some great tags with descriptions of the technique so that we will always know how we made that cool effect.
The second class was a home art piece showcasing Wendy's new line of art parts. This four hour class was smaller and more relaxed. We had lots of stories and laughs shared during these four hours. Not to mention really cool art at the end.

I will post those projects another time. For now, I wanted to get  the photos of her art, and class time and a couple very special photos with her onto this blog for your viewing pleasure.

Here is my friend Wendy ( and partner in scrapping crime), Wendy Vecchi and myself

Wendy was just as cool in person as she appears on her blog. She was very gracious, and fun, sharing some funny stories of her work and a little bit of her personal life with us. I was really thrilled when we went up to say hello and she asked me if I was pixiedust ( my online moniker) from the blog. " Yes" I must have squealed and she gave me a big ole hug. Now that is someone who really does take the time to read her blog comments. It made my day !
