You are a riot and I love your projects. You cupcake holder is adorable. Can't wait for the instructions!


I wasn't too hip on the chair set.. at first.. but I have to say the way you colored it turns it into something entirely new. I hope you will show some tips to get that great color fade! The cupcake holder is killer - I will have to do something like that for my girls' birthdays next month!

Stef Perry

Three fantastic projects!! So many fun things to look forward to in the new catalogue. Your coloring with markers is to die for!!! I wish I lived near you so I could come to a class (if you were willing to share your knowledge, that is!!), but alas, I must just take comfort in enjoying the view from my computer on the West Coast. Thanks Jan!


Great cards and absolutely freakin' wonderful cupcake holder! A template would be so appreciated.

Theresa R

You are awesome and definitely deserved to give that yummy cupcake a tour of your insides, (giggle.) Will await your template with (a little) patience.
