Intermediate Copic Certification...

I had a great time at the Intermediate Copic Certification Class taught by Colleen Schaan (@ left with me) and Debbie Olson earlier this month.  Colleen and Debbie were such awesome instructors.  I learned so much from them.  I loved having them critique my work and give me valuable advice so I can become a better artist.
Colleen was so sweet and bubbly.  I just loved how excited she got when she was teaching the class. 

Debbie Olson...I could listen to her teach for hours.  I loved her accent!  She has such a warm and friendly personality, made you feel like you've known her for years!

Cindy, our Copic Rep and Jennie Black, our Copic Certification Instructor for the Western USA.  I can't even begin to tell you how much I adore these ladies!  These two ladies have encouraged me to reach for my goals.  I really appreciate their vote of confidence in me!
Jennie...ahhh...I just love this lady!  I drove to Las Vegas for the Standard Certification Class she taught back in May 2010.  I want to say I was in the 2nd class that she certified.  I also took some technique classes of hers back in February, they were awesome!  Those classes really helped me understand the material being taught in the Intermediate Class.  Jennie had such confidence in me and really encouraged me to apply for the Intermediate Class.  Thank-you so much for all that you've done for me Jennie!  I'm so glad that I got to see you in Phoenix!

I had such a nice couple of days of "me" time in Phoenix.  Shopping, Copics Class, a day at the salon getting my hair cut and colored, more shopping=)  Thank-you to my wonderful hubs for giving me the time away!
