Heidi Swapp is coming back to Aus!!

Heidi Swapp 
Is coming back to Aus.!!! Yeah!
This time with  
Tattered Angels and 
House of 3!!!
Oh this is fantastic news!!
2 of My Favorite Products!
Rolled into one BIG education day!

Not sure.... but I think this is the Class???
The same one as being taught live in the US....

And a close up of the gorgeous album....


I have been dying to see the  
New Tattered Angels Products 
 of course "Have a Play"

 I am definitely EXCITED!! LOL! 
OK we had major Venue Problems last time in Brisbane...
(Which I am sure will be fixed this time.... :) )
But I still learned heaps of New Techniques!!!

Want to know more???????
Info from Heidi's Blog.....

"We are excited to be visiting: Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane…we are trying to squeeze in as much as we possibly can!

Some products need more ‘education’ than others. Usually, those are the products that you can do the most with… they are the most versatile and allow the most creativity!  The products and projects that we will be bringing you are in this category… they require a little instruction, and once you get the basics… there is no stopping where you can take it!! of course, I am talking about all the Glimmery mediums from Tattered Angels, as well as the concept of ‘hybrid crafting’ that is our vision at House of 3!
The day long workshop will begin at 9am, and we’ll go until 6pm….. a full day of inspiration and instruction!"

Ok so this isn't my planned post for the day....

But I just had to
Share this bit of news!!!
Lou xx

P.S. Think I can feel a trip to the "big smoke" coming on!!! lol!
