creativebug :: online painting classes with knack

CBFurnitureFacebook-843x504_1furniture-redo furniture-redo_16Hey everyone! I am so sorry that I have been a little bit silent around here the last couple of weeks!

I had a really big and unexpected opportunity come up and I dove in with everything that I had. It went really, really well and I will be able to tell you about it at the end of the week! Yay! You don’t have to wait long!

AND….to tide you over….my online classes are launching THIS THURSDAY! I am so excited to share these classes with you all!

I filmed these classes with a company called Creativebug and I absolutely cannot say enough about them! The team from Creativebug was an absolute joy and they were so skilled and professional. The week we spent together was long and tiring, but in the end new friendships were forged, great work was accomplished, and I totally cried when we all had to hug goodbye. I love you Brian, Devlin and Courtney! Thanks for being amazing at what you do!

I’ll be back Wednesday with more info on where to go and how to sign up!

Get Ready!

      YAY! Thank you Danielle! xo Congrats on the Domino Mag feature! Woot!

  2. What a great news! Since I found your first book I become a big fan of Knack. I´ve learned a lot about painting furniture with you. You encouraged me to give the first steps on starting a small business by myself. The book was incredible helpful. I cannot wait to see your classes. Thanks!

      Thank you so much Martha! I was just talking to a friend about you last night! :} All good things! I was saying how much I appreciate the fact that we both do the same thing, but you have truly found your own niche and design style and I just respect and admire that so much! Bravo!

      • I also respect your work so much… It’s beautiful. But more importantly, you’re all about the expression of design/ideas and that’s what excites me about furniture arts more than anything. The paint is our tool to get our ideas into the tangible world. You’re awesome.
