I hope this finds you and your family making room for new abundance and opportunities for 2012.
I just returned from taking a great class on design, etching, laminating metals, and patinas! My team was at a technology/marketing event at the same time. So we are all just bubbling over with new inspiration!
One of the things I love the most about spring is the cleaning out of the old (whether this is in your garden, your studio or cleaning up your books) and welcoming in the new!
It's all about planting seeds for new growth and new possibilities.
I'm knee deep in this personally and professionally. It's like that urge to nest. I have "ants in my pants" to make room for new abundance! How else do you explain the feeling of vibrating bliss and excitement about the future?
So I've been busy putting items in clearance at Whole Lotta Whimsy, cleaning up my studio and office and planting new seeds of growth professionally/personally.
What does this spring bring for you?
I'd love to connect with you! Join us next Sunday, April 15th, on Whole Lotta Whimsy's Facebook page for the Sunday Social Circle. You can tell us all about your work, where to find you (FB, Etsy, Website), and connect with nearly 200 other fantastic artists in our Create + Connect + Collaborate "secret" forum!
Have a super holiday weekend and TAKE ACTION on planting magical seeds of possibilities! I see "daffodils, tulips, and gerberas" popping up all around you!

Barbara Becker Simon's Helpful Tips
We were so lucky to have had Barbara share her wisdom with us in 5 of the Master Muse Tutorials. Her Design Challenge Tutorials were #2, #11, #22, #30, #39 and #47. You will definitely want to check out the synopsis of her tutorials.
In her Spiral Clasp in CopprClay(tm) Master Muse Tutorial #2 she shares several of her design tips.
This fantastic and popular tutorial is available at Whole Lotta Whimsy. It's 42 photos and steps, on thick glossy cardstock, that take you from the actual design concept, thru execution, to stringing the final piece. No secret or trick left untold!
* Special Offer! *
If you order it prior to April 11th at midnight PT, we'll take $5.00 off the price and throw in the Tutorial Stand, a $6.50 value. Just mention DAFFODILS in the comment section of your order.
You'll find Barbara on Facebook at "Barbara Becker Simon Glass and Metal Clay" and also at www.bbsimon.com. She will be teaching at Bead and Button and the PMC Guild Conference this summer. Be sure and add her to your list of must-take classes!
