We had a great time at Nathalie's class.  The Magenta Trunk Show was huge.  I couldn't believe how many stamps they brought with them in their little red car.  I'll have more photos later.  They are on my other camera.

I think I am finally done moving dates around on the calendar.  I moved the Demo Day rewind to Sunday April 22nd.

New April Calendar

Hi Everyone,

We are gearing up for our visit from Nathalie Metivier from Magenta.  We received 3 boxes of supplies for her class and she is bringing a trunk show!  You can still sign up for her class, we still have seats available.

Nathalie Métivier started in her childhood to draw and exhibit her work. With her sister Hélène and Daniel, her brother-in-law, she helped, 20 years ago, to create Magenta Rubber Stamps. One of her many tasks is to be part of the creative team. She drew many of the images as well as she invented the "direct-to-paper" and the "Ghost" coloring techniques. In addition, she is a certified Ranger instructor. She appeared several times on Carol Duvall Show as well as on Magenta's own videos. She is co-author with Leslie Conron Carola of the books Magenta Style Paper Magic and Magenta Style Paper Enchantments. Most of all, she likes to share ideas and techniques with others.
