Annie Hesse...what a gracious, giving and talented soul she is. I met Annie years ago. I had admired her work for awhile and when I heard she was giving a class, locally, on beaded faces, I jumped at the chance to be there.

Now a days you can find her at Bead and Button teaching, so that in itself tells you what a prolific beader she is.

We feel honored to have her teaching for us at Art-Is.

On Sunday, she is offering a quirky assemblage style doll. When looking at the 3 together, you can see the possibilities are endless with this kind of creating. Monday brings us her 1/2 day workshop, Ring Bling. She will teach a peyote stitch band and from there the skies the limit as to how you would like the ring to bling.

Annie has made the generous offer to have the next 2 who sign up for her class on Sunday and Monday, their kits will be free and she will also bring them a bag of goodies! How divine!

She is the creator of Magic, Mischief and Mayhem; Art Gone Wild doll conference in Kentucky, a designer of dolls, molds and patterns.

The accolades, publications and invitations are too numerous to mention, but I'm sure she wouldn't mind you stopping by her website to take a peek. Yes, we are fortunate and blessed to have Annie not only as a teach but as a treasured friend. Head on over to her blog for a visit and say 'hi'.

What an amazing artist. Her rings definitely have a lot of bling. Thank you for your kind comment on my blog. I purchased a dictation program for my computer. Now I can dictate my comments and I don't have to type.

Have a great weekend.
