If you know Linda like I know Linda...

Oh, oh, oh what a (talented) gal...Linda Kinnaird is ~ On September 11th at 2:00pm to 4:00pm, after Lisa's collage workshop Linda will be tutoring her knowledge of metal stamping in her Introduction of Metal stamping. Everyone will take home with them a very stylish pair of silver earrings with tiny little fleur-de-lis (my favorite frenchy motif)! If only I were not going to be stuck at the register I would be there making my pair! Shucks ~ maybe Linda will give me a private lesson someday! These earrings will go with everything and what a perfect gift they would be also.
Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?
There are 4 spaces left in her metal stamping workshop ~
I know that everyone will love these earrings!
Next time you're in be sure to check out all of Linda's jewelry designs at Cottage Panache.

These are two creations by Linda Kinnaird Jewelry! Linda works full time and still finds time to designs and create on a regular basis, not to mention her continued education of jewelry design. Recently investing her time and money in yet another art ~firing her own glass beads! 
Soon I will post some pictures of the studio ~ where myself, instuctors like Linda and Lisa, and our students will join together to create til our hearts content! Join us won't you ~ many new classes to come!
Thanks for visiting!

Soon we found it necesary to start a waiting list and began to plan Workshop #2 of Elements of Collage (due to popularity of!), this wonderful collage by Lisa McIlvain. She has been doing these pieces for quite awhile now and they just keep getting better and better! Some of her special blog friends have been recipients of her beautiful pieces,  all quite fabulous ~ each and every one of them! We first planned it for another Thursday evening and have signed two more girls for that date, however hearing through the Grapevine (one of the best and favorite modes of info!) some are finding that a Saturday would work better for them. That being said ~ Diane and Linda have agreed to switch to a Saturday September 11th, at 10am to 1pm! Thanks girls ~ Lisa and I appreciate your flexibility!
