Amy Tan at CRAFT - Grab Your Seat Now!

The one and only Amy Tan is joining us to lead a fantastic workshop at CRAFT in just ten short days...don't YOU want to be there?

This mini-album workshop using her Amy Tangerine line, washi tape and more will have you thinking about how to stay focused on what matters most in your life. Sponsored by American Crafts, this class will teach you some of Amy’s style secrets, using her effortless and fabulous approach to ‘creating from your gut’.

Check out the sneaks below.

Amy has created a fun and personal album where you'll identify and explore the nine things that make up the grid of meaning in your life. Why? As our lives develop and progress, we're sometimes in the position of losing part of what defines us. This type of creative analysis will remind you that your life is full of meaning and value, even when one of our focal points changes or goes away. It's a wonderful way to look at your life with fresh and grateful eyes.

You can register for Amy's class at the REGISTER link just under the Blog Header. You can choose just this class, a whole day or the three day package...either way, you'll learn and grow, emotionally and creatively, in a safe, warm, and supportive environment where you can be the authentic you.

When you register, we'll send you all the info you'll need to prepare to make this album truly individual to you.

In addition to the class, registering gives you a great gift bag, a delicious meal from Urth Caffe, and chances to win great prizes!

Hope to see you there...
