I'm hoping that my students couldn't tell quite how badly I was feeling, but on Saturday I practically crawled to The Ink Pad to teach my stamp carving/printmaking class. Not to overshare, but I had food poisoning of epic proportions. I'm really proud of myself for keeping it together and making it through the 10am-5pm class! Of course I got home and passed out for about sixteen hours, but that's another story! Regardless, it was a wonderful way to spend a slushy Saturday. And may I brag about my students for a moment?
These three ladies: Pat, Eileen, and Heidi, came together. I love it when there are friends in class because they always have the best time giggling with each other and these ladies were no exception! I so appreciated their dry senses of humor! And they carved some gorgeous stuff too!
Jodi (left) went from believing that she couldn't draw to drawing that wonderful swirly flower heart shape you see her carving! Amazing! And Liz (right) is always a fabulous student and impressive artist. You might remember her puzzle pin tutorial, which was featured on this blog!
These super cool orange flowers are wonderful Susan's prints! I somehow did not get a photo of her in action...oops!
Linda was a wonderfully enthusiastic student! One of the things I love about teaching is re-living the thrill of discovery through my students. Linda was having discoveries left and right and that was lots of fun for me!
Thanks for stopping by!
