donna downey!


It was a very fun day today - I drove down to the cities to take classes from Donna Downey! Loved, loved, loved every part of it. Donna is great teacher and I loved the projects. I would have really loved to have stayed for all of her classes. Next time...

Here are the projects that I made in my classes. The project was a file album.

Awesome. It was great to learn the tricks and tips that only Donna could teach you...

Here's the next project from the Bookbinding 101 class:

Bookbinding1 Bookbinding2_2

We completely sewed the book together to bind it. Loved that. I had taken a bookbinding class years ago and have since forgotten many of the stiches we learned. I have bookbinding books, but I really really learn the best by sitting down and doing.

It was a great day - Thanks, Donna, I had a fabulous time :)
