I'm very excited as I've just started this on-line journal class.

The great thing for me is our tutor is Carole Brungar, a fellow New Zealander.

I don't know Carole personally, but I have followed her blog for a while and I've been in awe of what a talented person she is.

She makes beautiful QUILTS, sews exquisite EMBROIDERY, makes fantastic JOURNALS and on top of that takes GREAT photos.

With this particular journal, we are making it from scratch.
Dyeing/painting our watercolour paper, cutting tearing the paper to turn into journal pages and then embellishing with fabrics, paper and much, much more!!

We are learning many techniques in the process which will be invaluable for future projects.

For more information please visit Carole's blog here and when you join our class we'll all make you very welcome. Kiwi's (that's what New Zealanders are called) are known for being very friendly and welcoming!

Most of the girls in the class are from America, UK, and Australia, with one each from Norway, Switzerland, and France.

Hope to see you in class!


  1. Hi, Such a nice blog you have! I got your mail :)
    The photo below is just like Norway looks where I live. Huge mountains and fjords! Isn't it beautiful?

  2. Sounds like a blast! The kind of class where you are there all day but it seems like only an hour, you get so immersed in the process of creating! Be sure to post what you make....AND, have fun!
