Whoa baby!

This is too cool for school… check out the loot that Jacquard Products sent us in addition to our order for paints we placed with them last week:

sea_of_paints-1506386 I asked for some product to help with my workshops for Make It U! and I’m positively bowled over by their generosity. They sent bags of small samples of their Lumieres and Sherrill Kahn sorbets, a set of their gorgeous new line of Lumieres in the 2/25 oz. bottles, as well as some Pearl-Ex powders in luscious colors.

When we placed our order last week I saw that they now have Sherrill Kahn sorbets in the 2.25 oz. bottles and I’m ecstatic. Those bright, springy colors are so yummy, and readers keep asking me when we’ll have them. They’re here! After Chicago, we’ll put them up on our website (around April 15th).

So what are my plans with all this paint? The first 25 people who sign up for my Mixed-media Fabric Painting and Collage Workshop Friday night will get a complimentary canvas tote bag from Quilting Arts, LLC:

And in one hour, we’re going to paint (and get a little grubby in the process) as we turn them into something like this:

Fun will be had by all, I promise. Hope you’ll join me…
