  1. Thank you, Delia! I loved the workshop – you’re a fantastic teacher. I especially appreciated that you allowed us to use our own creativity in our pieces. What a great time we all had. Looking forward to your future events.

    • Pam,
      I am glad you enjoyed the workshop. I had a great time myself. We had such a good group!

      I enjoy seeing what comes out of each person in the way of design. I really liked your trees. I am a tree lover … part of my inner ‘bohemian’ shining through. lol In fact trees were involved in my very first etching experiment too as a matter of fact. 🙂 And I never get tired of playing with the etching. There will be more etching adventures on the horizon for me! 🙂 With stamps, iron on transfers, etc.
