Marylinn Kelly and Lisa Hoffman at Stamp Your Heart Out, Claremont
Another wonderful excursion! Went to Claremont yesterday to see Marylinn Kelly and Lisa Hoffman present a "Journal Improv" at Joan's great store, Stamp Your Heart Out! Saw lots of familiar faces and was so happy to see Marylinn and Lisa after so many years. They covered "visual journaling" basics (there ARE no rules) and offered lots of great information on resources and uses for products, techniques, as well as books, magazines and other artists' blogs. Lisa's blog is http://www.lisahoffman.typepad.com/ and there's a link to Marylinn's blog on my list already. Stamp Your Heart Out does frequent mailings about their events, so be sure to contact them to get on that list at http://www.stampyourheart.com/. Again, no traffic to speak of heading out there mid-day on Saturday -- it was about 30 minutes from the OC and there are tons of places to shop and eat! They have a monthly ATC swap (the third Saturday) and the next one is Saturday, May 15. If you don't know about ATC's this is the place to go -- and if you decide to get into it, they have everything at the store you'll need to get started. There are so few stamp stores left -- let's support the great ones that we have!
