Good morning! I have an awesome giveaway to share today, compliments of the amazingly talented Kelly Purkey! She’s teaching a sketch class and is letting me give away a free spot to her online class, worth $25. Here are the details…
Sketchbook is a 12 day class filled with fresh sketches, easy instructions, beautiful examples, and lots of fun. Beginning on March 29th to April 9th, a PDF will be delivered to your inbox each morning so you can work at your own pace. By the end of the class, you’ll have a complete sketchbook of 12 sketches and over 30 example layouts. For each of the sketches you’ll be receiving an example layout from Kelly Purkey, along with one or more example from a member of the incredible Studio Calico design team. All of the examples are brand new layouts, exclusive to this class… you won’t see them anywhere else! Sketchbook will also include a private message board for questions and sharing ideas, as well as two scheduled chats – all on the awesome Studio Calico website.
This is going to be one fabulous class and I love that you can do it all at your own pace. Perfect. So, if you would like a chance to win a free spot in the class, just leave a comment by next Monday March 22nd. I’ll draw a name that morning. And if you want to go ahead and register before finding out that you won… go for it. I’m sure Kelly would refund your money if you win the free spot! (And I think there may be more DT members giving similar giveaways, so be sure to check their blogs also!)
On a totally different topic… we visited D.C. last weekend to celebrate the twins’ 7th birthday. They decided that for their birthday they wanted to go to the Smithsonian. Partly inpsired by their love of science and partly by their love of The Night at the Museum movies. 😉 Especially the second one, Battle for the Smithsonian. The neat thing is, if you go to the Smithsonian website, you can download and print a scavenger map of sorts to use while visiting the museums. It has all the items featured in the movie, so that the kids can be on the look out for those items while there. Pretty great way to keep them interested and make it more relevant. We had a great time and need to go back again soon. There’s just soooo so much to see there, you can’t do it just two days! Here’s a shot of the three big kids on the mall.
