Calling all new journaling artists with the desire to ARTFULLY EXPRESS YOURSELF! Cherri has added a second session of journaling this winter designed specifically to those wishing to begin their altered art journey. The class is 4 sessions, and downsized to 3 signatures. Students provide their own supplies. Session 1 requires Little Sisters to bring 9 pieces of 6x12” cardstock to sew your 6x6” book. Session 2 includes making backgrounds with Oxide Distress Inks and Tags to complete the “Scrappy Tag Book” set up. 
Sessions 3 and 4 will include design assistance. Join the original Sisters and accept the two “challenges” … (1) start your layout by using an 8x8” wall calendar for your images and (2) share a little something with each of the other Little Sisters to help them along.  For additional details, please check out Cherri’s blog  Please provide your email when registering. Payment required by January 15, 2018.


***Classes start promptly at the time listed.  Please have your lovely buns in the seat and be ready to go!    Showing up late is very disruptive to the class that is already in progress.  Plan ahead for traffic or other things that might slow you down! 
If you are more than 10 minutes late, you may be asked to get into another class.  If you are more than 15 minutes late, you will forfeit your class fee. 
Classes must be paid for at the time of registration.  You are not considered registered unless a class is paid for which could affect your seat in those classes with student limits.  You may pay with cash, check or use a credit card with a $2 handling fee.  You may register over the phone and mail in a check or give us a credit card number. 
We also assume you're taking a class to enjoy a break for a few hours and learn some cool stuff without interruptions.  That said, we will now begin each class by asking you to turn off your cell phones or silence them during class.  This will enhance everyone's learnin' and enjoyment of the class at hand.
Thank you in advance for understanding.  If you have problems or questions about these policy updates, please see Patsy.
