  1. Hi Michelle,

    I just wanted to say that your blog has to be, by far, the most beautiful of any of the ones I’ve visited. Your art work, and your cards are an inspiration to do better.

    Thank you.
    Heather

  2. Welcome to the bloggin world, Michelle! I’m so glad you’ll be sharing your wonderful talent with all of us. Your pastels are magnificent!!!

  3. Michelle I am so glad you did get a blog. I had written to you earlier thinking you had one so now I’m very happy that you do. You inspire me beyond measure. I have discovered a new passion creating these beautiful cards using your techniques. Thank you so much and please keep the tutorials coming. I love them and I love looking at your art work.

  4. Michelle, I love your blog and really love all your cards! I have so many of them favorited. Can’t wait to see new creations from you.

  6. Michelle, Your technique and cards are so artistic, I am completely in awe of your work!
    Thank you so much for posting such fabulous details in your tutorials, I have been studying them. I have worked at your brayering technique and I must admit, I seem to have to follow up with alot of sponging but I truly want to get good at this form of expression, I promise to work at it, hopefully someday I’ll be able to put two colors together all by myself. I ALWAYS credit you when I get compliments on the cards I make.
    Thank you so much!

  7. I must agree, your cards are some of most beautiful cards I have seen, and I am going to try some of these out as soon as I get some ink :). I am new at stamping, and just beginning to find my style.
    Thank you so much for sharing with us.

  8. Michelle,

    I am fascinated by your use of color and technique. Keep up the good work. You bring stamping to a higher level.

  9. Hi Michelle: I just sent you an email. I love your blog page. Wow. I love your work, totally awesome.

  10. Michelle: You have the most beautiful cards!!!!! I love your tutorials also; they are very clear and detailed. Love your work!

  11. I just have to tell you that I’ve only just recently discovered your blog… but I INSTANTLY added you to the top of my favorites list! You are such an inspiration and incredible designer. Thank you for sharing your amazing talents! Happy Stampin!

  12. Jackie, Warwick, UK

    Hello

    I found your blog via another blog, just amazing……… I will be a repeat visitor. Thank you so much for sharing. I am off to buy a brayer!!

    Best wishes

    Hi Michelle,

    I am thrilled to bits I just found out you have a blog – Hooray!, I love all your stunning Brayered backgrounds.

    I’ve just done my first brayered background, following your tutorial on Splitcoast, and my 2nd attempt is way better then my first, my problem was I was inking up the very edge of my brayer, so I kept getting this darn line, but now I’ve figured that out and I just keep blending the colours, I think I am getting there.

    Thanks so much!

    Lisa

  14. I found your blog as you were listed as an inspiration to Stampin Caz in the UK (I should have been working but my boss was away!). I, like all the others who have commented, am completely blown away by your talent (AND your stock of pens that match inkpads that match papers that match alcohol inks and so on). I will now dig out that brayer that I bought about 12 years ago and never knew what to do with, and with another few purchases will attempt one of your techniques. Thank you so much for taking the time to do your tutorials it has given me hope that I too can make something beautiful!

  15. My gosh I found your blog on 2 peas in a bucket and for hours I have sat here and looked at all your work you are a very talented and gifted lady! Thank u for taking the time and sharing each of your wonderful art pieces now when I am able to hold my eyes open come morning (smile) I have to try some of your techniques!!!!
    Jen

  16. Hi Michelle: I love your talent and passion. Your work wether it is on canvas or cardstock is a true inspiration. Your finished pieces are very calming and serene. Thank you for sharing. I will visit your blog often as I have put it on my toolbar for inspiration. I am from Toledo, Ohio and now live in Colorado. But my baby sister lived in Dayton at the air force base. So I visited a couple of times, very nice. I wish you luck and success. I have a motto I have written over my entry way into my craft room: My Purpose In Life Is To Be Who I Am. I believe that you have found your purpose and are sharing it with others. God Bless, Diane

  17. I just dicovered your site and your passion really comes across in your work. One could only hope to be able to create something as beautiful ( that will be a long time coming for me). Your tutorials are excellent and you make it look so easy, a sign of a true crafter. So, get that cam up and running–can’t wait for you to do videos and to listen to you explaining “how to”. Please make one of your first ones on brayering–your brayering cards just seem to be “alive”. Thank-you so much for sharing your secrets with us.
    May you have a Blessed Mother’s Day.

  18. Michelle –

    It is rare that I ever write to someone that has a blog but there is always a first. I just had to tell you how much I enjoy getting your blog emails. You are so inspirational to me – your creativity just astounds me. I just wanted to thank you for all the hard work you put into all your projects and for allowing us all along for the ride!!!

    Michael

  19. Hi Michelle ,

    You have a lovely blog is too wonderful !! I love what you did with this image! I can’t wait to see what else you come up with, you always have FABULOUS stuff!

    Enjoy ur great weekend.
    Regards.

  20. Michelle,
    You seem to use alot of clear embossing powder. Where do you get it from?

    Thanks,

    Dear Michelle

    I’m from Australia and consider myself a new stamper who can’t get enough. I work fulltime but my mind wants to be at home stamping. I stumbled across your blog through stampin up website and I can’t believe how excited I was to absorb what you do. I have surfed many card making websites but you are truly the most inspiring I have seen. You are imaginative, clear and concise in your tutorials and work magic. I am ashamed to admit this, the first thing I do when I get to work is log onto your blog which happens to be on my favourites. I have forwarded your blog onto some dear friends of mine to help inspire them as they need all the help they can get. Keep up the good work, and thank you for sharing, you are truly a magical person.

    Cheers Narelle

  22. Cards are great- tutorials are the best! Thanks for sharing so much.

  23. Hello,

    I would have to say that your work is BEAUTIFUL and I wanted to thank you for your tutorials. I have always looked at them but never really tried to do anything till the other day.

    I would have to say that I cannot brayer for my life. Do you have a trick or technique for getting a smooth full coverage? By the time I finished I had some spots with more color than others and it looked terriable.

    I would really appreciate any help you could provide me with that.

    Thank you,
    Luisa

  25. IT IS SO DIFFICULT FOR ME TO BELIEVE THAT THE BIRD STAMPED ON THE FIRST PAGE IS THE ONE THAT I SAW ON THE CARD! I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYONE THAT CAN MAKE A CARD COME TO LIFE AS WELL AS YOU DO! IT LOOKS LIKE THE BIRD JUST FLEW INTO THAT TREE AND IS WAITING TO TAKE OFF AGAIN. BEAUTIFUL TUTORIALS AND I LEARN SO MUCH FROM THEM!

  26. have just spent an hour and a half looking at your blog. now I will be late for work but am truly inspired. can hardly wait to get home later this evening and start trying to follow some of the tutorials. You make your cards look like art(because they are) . Once again thank you for sharing your obvious God given talent with some of us(me) who have to copy others who are.

  27. Michelle,
    Irecently discovered your blog and wanted to say thanks so much for sharing your creativity. I really like the different techniques you showcase and your tutorials are great. They are easy to follow especially for new stampers. I am a SU hobby demonstrator also to pay for my habit. I started stamping over 15 years ago and am amazed at the changes and trends that are seen now. It is always fun to learn about local talent (I grew up in Northern KY and have lived in Cincinnati for the past 20 years).

    Keep On Stampin’!

  28. You are my new idol, inspiration, and mentor! Your work is so beautiful and your tutorials are so precise and informative. I’ve been seeing your work cased on a couple of the groups and when I finally found a link to your blog, I was so very excited. I can’t wait to go home and try your techniques. I don’t want to sound like a stalker or anything, but I’m definitely going to be watching you!!!! Thank you so much for sharing your talent.

  29. I Love all your items. I am a mom of a 2 yr. old boy and have not gotten to try your techniques yet. My mom is in a senoir card class and she got excited when I bought her a brayer. lol You are truely an artist.

  30. since about a month I follow your site and techniques. your work is so beautifull! A´m just a beginner with the stamping technique and I love your work and technique so much!. You inspire me!
    Your name was mentioned on a duch site and since then I look everyday at your site to see what you have created this time!
    regards from The Netherland,
    Atie

  31. Just finished perusing your site and I am awe-inspired. I love watercoloring and have always been intimated by it but I am going to try some of your detailed techniques in your tutorials and see what happens. Thanks for sharing your tutorials. I have seen some of your work on SCS. You are truly talented!!

    Michelle: Would you please email me your address. I made you a thank you card and need an address. It is to thank you for coming to San Jose and sharing your wonderful talent with us. I have been doing the braying thingy since that class and I feel I am getting a handle on it. I do it your way, my way, and just any old way that pops up. I really like the cards I have done so far (three). Variations on your themes cuz I hate to be a copycat. I even tried it on glossy and had good luck. Dye inks can fade on glossy tho so I run them outside and spray them.

    Thanks again!

    Betty

  33. HI im Rosa from germany, an my english is not very good..

    I have found your blog by Alexa and i am very proud to say: i have made some cards with your wonderful technic!
    Its so great to let the inspirations out and its so funny, to do this!

    I have linked your side on my blog und i say: you are a great artist!!!
    Many and lovely greetings from Rosa

  34. Michelle,
    Someone from my cardmaking group online posted your blog link last week and since then I’ve been hooked. I haven’t used my brayer in ages, but with your step by step instructions I feel more confident in making awesome looking cards. I can’t pick out a favorite of yours yet since I’m still going through the pages. I love your recent one with the scarecrow. And the “wanted” one with the horse running is absolutely beautiful.

    Thanks for sharing your beautiful cards and how you make them. It makes brayering a lot less intimidating for card makers like me. Keep up the fantastic work and tutorials.

    Marq:-D

  35. Michelle -

    I stumbled across your work on the SCS website. Your work is absolutely breathtaking! I have always wondered how to get those beautiful “sky” effects and am delighted that you post your tutorials. You’re on my favorites now and I’ll visit often. Too bad I live so far away … would love to attend your workshops! Keep up the good work!

  36. Kylie Clemmence

    Michelle,

    I have just been introduced to your work, and I am in awe of your generosity in sharing! Thankyou so much, I am always in search of new techniques to try and am thoroughly enjoying trying to master this one!! Your work is beautiful and you have now been added to my favourites!
    Cheers from Australia,
    Kylie

  37. Hi Michelle,

    Just a short note to say ‘Happy Birthday’ and hope your day is extra, extra special!

    Pat

  38. Hi Michelle,
    I was just blog browsing , when I came upon your blog. I am very impressed by the pic. by pic. descriptions to the “how to’s” and the products used. You are very talented and I am very grateful to the time you took to show us all how you do “your thing!” I will be sharing this blog with many friends who will understand alot more of the stamping world by your pictures. Keep up the great work!
    Kris

  39. Your work is so inspiring! It is the most amazing artwork. I can’t begin to even express how wonderful it is to see your amazing tutorials. I truly treasure seeing how you do these beautiful cards!

    I have pacticed my new technique – work my brayer to death and I was ready to send you the “fruits of my creations (artistic creation ha, ha, ha) but I have a stupid question: how do you take such pefect pictures of your cards?
    Mine don’t look good at all?
    Any secret that you might want to share?
    Gabriela

  41. Hello from beautiful BC. Canada. What beautiful work you do with stamps and brayers. I will be using my brayer more now to see if I can make a card that at least half resembles yours. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful cards and tutorials.

  42. I love your work and tutorials! I moved to the Dayton area (Kettering) 2 1/2 years ago and have not not found a stamp group down here to substitute for my old one. Your tutorials help me find inspiration and play! Thanks so much!

  43. It’s really amazing how much tutorials you did, and they are all so inspirational ! Thank you for all this work

  44. I just wanted to leave a little note saying i LOVE your art… Thank you for sharing with us! Continue the great work!!

  45. Happy New Year Michelle! I’d just like to say a huge thank you for helping me to take my stamping to a new level. You have really inspired me since I discovered your blog in September. Many, many thanks for sharing your huge talents!

  46. have just discovered the UK.retail shop address so thank you once again.

  47. Absolutely love your work! So bummed I missed out when you were here in San Jose, CA last year. Wish I’d known! If you do end up coming out to northern CA again (saw you might be putting together a class in Carmel/Monterey?) I would love to come!

  48. Your creations are amazing, and the detail of your tutorials just blow me away! I just subscribed to your blog and can’t wait to see your future masterpieces :-)

  49. hi,
    i live in chillicothe, oh and i came across your art in scs.
    i was blown away by your talent. love it, so i have signed up for your class in dayton on april 4th and i can’t wait to get there.
    i sure hope you will be able to show me how to use a brayer. i have had one for years and have never used it.
    keep up the good work.
    sincerely,
    tricia

  50. Michelle, I want to be like you when I grow up!!

  51. Michelle,

    Your cards are breathtaking and when your tutorials come over, it makes my day. I have to tell you that your artistic style always leaves me wanting more.

    I have been a SU demo for about 6 months and since finding your site, I have decided that I want to be just like you, when I grow up!

    If you are ever teaching a class near Tarboro, NC, please let me know.

    In the meantime, please keep those great tutorials coming!

    Brenda Cook

  52. Michelle -
    Can I send you some post-it notes?? I love your card designs and hope not having some post-it notes will ever be your excuse for not being able to produce more wonderful cards!
    As soon as I get back from my deployment, I will be signed up for both of your classes.

    Thanks again for the inspiration! And I’m serious: I will send you some supplies just send me your mailing address! : )
    Ann

    enjoy your work and pop in almost everyday
    kind regards from Western Australia

  55. Michelle,
    I crashed when I got home last night after attending your FANTASTIC brayer classes in Stoughton Ws. It was so much fun and I learned soooooooooo much. Thank you! Your style of teaching put us at ease and kept us going. Even when I thought I was producing ‘junk’ , with your cintinued support and encouragement – in the light of a new day the completed projects look pretty good. Thanks bunches
    Sandy

  56. OMG! I just found out that you live in West Alexandria! I live in New Lebanon. I just love your cards. I am so glad that other people are creative and they share that creativity with us who are not creative but if shown, we look like we are creative. Thanks again.

  57. How wonderful that you are coming to Grinnell Iowa in August of 2010 —- I have a group that wants to register as soon as we can —— i’m sorry if I didn’t see it — but how do we register for the workshops?

  58. Hi Michelle

    You are an inspiration! I’m constantly amazed by the stunning results you achieve with a little rubber roller and some stamps :-)

    I totally owe my much improved brayer skills to you and your generously detailed tutorials.

    Let us know when you come to visit Australia!

  59. Karen Hetherington

    I came across your website just a few days ago. WOW! Your cards are amazing! I am going to work at the wonderful brayering technique that you do. Thank you so much for sharing your art! I hope you will be teaching a class in MA sometime soon.
    Karen

  60. Hello Michelle

    Love your site ,wish I lived closer or the other way around and you lived nearer.
    Would love to go to one of your work shops .
    Thanks for sharing all the beautiful techniques,and information with us.
    Elsie

  61. Michelle,
    The class in Portland was fantastic. I am off to work on braying today. I can’t wait to try to do this on my own. You did such a great job of teaching the techniques. Can’t wait until next class.
    Betty

  62. Michelle,

    Wow! I love your work, you are certainly a Master with the Brayer! I too am a SU Demonstrator in a small area and don’t have a large customer base but have kept going for 7 years now. I sure wish I lived close to an area where you do your brayer workshops, but unfortunatly I live in Ontario, Canada. Thank you so much for posting your Tutorials on your site, maybe with lots of practice I might be able to learn how you create such awesome artwork. I love how you never seem to notice any lines left from the brayer in your work.

    I first saw your name “Zindorf” mentioned on Splitcoast, I thought it was a Technique. LOL It wasn’t until I did a search on the Internet that I found your site which is now book marked under my favorites. I’m hoping that if I practice and get good enough, I can teach my dedicated customers who have kept me going all these years. Once again thank you so much for taking the time to list your tutorials. It is nice for those of us who would love to attend one of your workshops but work full time and or live in another Country.

  63. Hi, Michelle -
    I just subscribed to your blog. Your name was given to me by a fellow SU! Demo, Sharon McN, who just attended your Nashville, IN brayer workshop. I am sitting here agog at your creations (and the samples Sharon brought to show). They are stunning – I had to call my husband to the PC to say look at this so I could share with someone immediately! LOL I have never seen anything like it – thank you so much for sharing your creations and tutorials. Sue

  64. Claudia Zimmerman

    Hi Michelle,

    Just a note to say again, thank you for the two fabulous classes last weekend – I learned so much and loved every minute of it.

    Your little grand daughter is adorable and I can tell how much fun you are all having! Happy Thanksgiving!

    Claudia

  65. I just found your wedsite yesterday. OMG!! You are my new hero!!! I wish I had have the talent you do. I ran our last night and bought a Speedball. I can not wait to try it out!!

  66. i just signed up for your newsletter. it arrived in my spam folder. what have i done incorrectly??

  67. I am a stamper from Switzerland and just regret that I can not follow one of your Workshop. You are an artist and I just love your cards and your inspiration.

  68. I found a card of yours on the website of Two Peas in a Bucket. I just loved it so I looked up your website. I love all the cards you have made and the tutorials on how to make them. I sat down the first night and made 6 of your cards. I love making cards and you have given me many ideas. I too use Stampin Up.

    I was suprised to see that you are from West Alex just like me. Welcome to our little town.

  69. Dear Michelle,

    I live in the UK and ever since you and your beautiful cards were featured in ‘Craft Stamper Magazine’, I have been your number 1 fan. You have given me so much inspiration and I have learnt so much through your tutorials. THANK YOU SO MUCH! Sally.

  70. Dear Michelle,
    You have the most beautiful cards. I love them all. When I saw hte pool table I was so thankful you thought of it. My Husband loves to play pool. I have not show him the card I want to try to make one for his Birthday for a surprise. I don’t know if I can wait that long. You ahve inspired me with all you beautiful cards. Keep up the GREAT work.
    Colleen

  71. Dear Michelle,

    Thank you for your amazing inspiration! You are such an amazing artist and so generous to share your wonderful techniques! I am really good at reproducing something I see, my hope is to be able to do more of my own desings. I am so excited by your ideas, you have given me so many of my own- you definatly have my creative juices flowing – Thank you!! Do you think you will ever do a class in Northern California??

    With Thanks,
    Tracey

  72. Michelle~
    Your cards are absolutely beautiful!!! They remind me of my favorite line of cards when I was in my teens but better (Amanda Bradley). I feel inspired by your creations. Please please come to Michigan.

    Thank you so much for sharing
    Terri

  73. A girl-friend, with whom I spend many enjoyable hours making cards, told me about your website this afternoon. I have just spent an hour looking at the wonderful tutorials – well, just looking at the images. All I can say is, WOW! They are so beautiful. They are such an inspiration and I thank you for sharing them with us. I live in Sydney Australia and wish that I was visiting my brother who lives in Atlanta when you are running your class.

    It will be a pleasure to keep visiting your website.

    Kind regards,

  74. Thank you so much for your Blog. I check it everyday. You inspire me.I am a new SU Demonstrator and hope to one day be able to create a card as beautiful as yours. Please consider coming to Calgary, AB Canada. I would love to take one of your classes. I know that you coming here is unlikely(even though it is an awesome place to vacation being so close to Banff) so I guess I’ll have to start saving to come to one of your workshops down there.

  75. Will you ever be close to Louisville KY for one of your workshops? I would love to attend both sessions

  76. Denise Pedersen

    Michelle,

    You MUST consider submitting to guest artist teach at “The Stamp Art Shoppe” in Roseville, California to teach your classes. Just outside of Sacramento.

    Your design and inspiration would be a welcome “new” experience for us faithfull stampers there in central California.

    Sandy O’Brien, the owner has had quest artists that include, Magenta Helene Metivoer, Ranger Tim Holtz, Dreamweaver stencils, The Creative Zone Michael Jacobs to name just a few. Your talent would really inspire us!!!

    Her shop is always taking us to a new level in challenging our creativity!

    Please give her a call and strut your stuff….if I may say….you have a talent given to share…

    Thanks,

  77. Dear Michelle. I’ve just now found “blog hopping” and have been visiting lots of blogs every night. I’m always amazed at how many talented and creative people are there. That said, I came across your blog by clicking on it from Karen Barber’s blog and I’m just BLOWN away by your cards. I thought my cards were classy, sophisticated and different…..I now bow to your artistry. I cannot come close to the beauty you create. I’m so inspired to try some of your techniques and cannot wait to start. I hardly ever use the brayer because I’m very intimidated by it and always get the dreaded “line” in my attempts. Thanks to you, I will pick up my brayer and work it out….I’ve GOT to case your cards….I just can’t help myself!

    Thanks so much for sharing. I’m just amazed. You’ve left me breathless. Cheers to you.

    Marci Snee
    Waynesburg, PA…..awaiting a brayer workshop in my area…..!

  78. Hey Michelle,

    I just love your blog and receive updates whenever you do up a new post. You amaze me with your ingenuity!

    Anyway I just wanted to let you know that I have awarded you a “Beautiful Blogger Award” and thank you for your inspiration.

    Cheers

  80. Thank you for sharing your most amazing God given talents. Your work is truly inspiring and gorgeous.

  81. Rosslyn Nelson

    Dear Mrs Zindorf,
    I am so very sorry to read about your husband’s illness. May he soon recover, and may you too manage all the cares and concerns which will arise without suffering unbearable strain and stress.

    Ever since I discovered your wonderful website, I have regularly followed your tutorials, and value their clarity and teaching power; I have very occasionally emailed you, and have appreciated your replies. I know I haven’t met you, and am not likely to, so I hope you will not feel this email is an intrusion from a stranger.

    You and your family are in my prayers, and I wish you all everything that is good.

    Rosslyn Nelson.
    (One of your fans in England.)

  82. Dear Michell

    I am French and I am interested in one of your stamp and I would like to know if it possible to buy it.

    Please let me know. Actually I am in Canada and I will pay also for sending in Canda if you agree.

    Sincerely yours

    Clément

  83. Hi,

    I like what you make, it is magnificent. But, I would like to know how you work with the brayer? I may tried well, that never gives the same result as you! Which is your secret to make of beautiful gradation with the roller.

    Sorry, i use a translator.

  84. Michelle-I attended your Middleburg Hts workshop and was inspired. I came home and removed the rubber from one of my stamping wheels and mounted it on acrylic block and it works ok, but it is so hard there is no give. Do you use any other material before mounting. Thanks again.

  85. Norma Davenport

    Michelle,

    1-love you site and check it out every day. And your tutorials have influenced my buying of SU stamp sets.

    2- I have a wonderful demonstrator in Columbus, Ga. and she has showed us a wonderful way to make sure that you have all your “clear” mount stamps after a stamping session. Do not throw away the sheet that you pop the stamps out of. After you have removed the protective sheet and put the pictures on all the stamps put that sheet of rubber back into the DVD case it came in. The stamps will fit back into the space they originally occupied. This way you know if you have all the stamps from that set back where they belong and you haven’t accidetly thrown them away.

  86. Hi Michelle–I love the new tutorial. It reminds me of my trip to Hawaii (Middleburg Hts class)

  87. Firstly, hello from Australia. I have just found your blog and was enthralled from the very first moment. You are awesome in your talent to create the most beautiful pictures from paper, stamps and ink. I get a sense of being drawn in to the place you have created.

    If I ever have the chance to visit your country again I would most definately make the time to do a class with you. As a new Stampin’ Up Demonstrator I would love to pass on your techniques in my workshops. Not for any financial gain; just to show how an amazing picture can be created.

    I, as well as people I have spoken to, are afraid to experiment and what you have achieved with your masks, brayer and inks is just amazing.

    Thank you so much for sharing. I will surely check back to see what other brilliant pieces you have created.

    Love to you from OZ

  88. I have been trying to find where I am to unsubscribe to your blog. Reason being is that I have two email addresses & I am getting double of everything you send. I am on a pre paid account with my broadband and cant afford to download your site twice.
    Could you please send me the link to unsubscribe.
    I have hit the unsubscribe button in your email and it takes me to your site which does not have anything.
    Thanks in advance for your help.
    regards
    Jennifer

  89. Hi Michelle, Just wanted to tell you how insperational your work is. You make me feel like I can actually do this! So thanks, for that. Going now to give it a try. Will let you know how I fare. Irene

  90. What wonderful cteations- I will certainly be using them as inspiration,. Have not used my brayer yet but will have a go. Many Thanks.

  91. Hi Michelle, your blog is truly inspiring for a beginner stamper like me. You show amazing techniques and you are so generous to share your knowledge with detailed tuts. I was wondering if we could ask some questions though that are not covered in your FAQ. For example, beginners don’t know if they should buy Pigment inks for emobossing or just buy regular dye based inks and use those with Versamark. I have heard pigment inks give better embossing results but I wouldn’t know! I love Stampin’ Up classic inks (dye based I presume) you use in your tuts all over the place.

    Hope you can add these to FAQ and help us save some money in buying the right supplies instead of spending money on extras we may not really need! Thanks in advance!

  92. Hi Michelle,
    Just got organized from our Az trip and wanted you to know how much I enjoyed the class you taught in the Chicago area Oct. 1 & 2. I learned a great deal and have enjoyed putting the skills you taught to use.

  95. Hi Michelle,
    Your cards are beautiful. Thanks for sharing the tutorials they provide a lot of inspiration. I would love to see more collage tutorials like your Fright Night Collage and and the card example in your Flourished Collage tutorial. These are some of my favorites. I have taken a couple of your classes and they are great!
