Hey everybody! I’m kinda excited…I got a box with HAPPY MAIL from My Sweet Petunia this week! Iliana sent me three Studio Bags, and of course since I can’t use three, guess what? I’m giving away two of them – the pink and turquoise! Giveaway deets below the videos.

Studio Bag: Packed for Crafting

First I packed the bag as a crafter, so I could test out and show you the pocket sizes in the bag. (All the supplies shown are listed at the end of this post. You have most of it, I think!) Watch the video below or click HERE to see it on YouTube.

Studio Bag: Packed for Bible Journaling

Then I packed the bag as a Bible journaler! I already have a ton of crafty bags already packed with my stuff, and I’ve needed one for my Bible journaling, so I’m likely to use this bag for that…and I shot a 2nd video over on my Bible journaling channel!  Watch the video below or click HERE to see it on YouTube.


I have the pink and turquoise bags to give away, so I’ll randomly choose two lucky winners, wheeee! (US only, they’ll be big packages to ship…sorry!) Leave a comment on this blog post, and tell me either 1) how having a MISTI has saved your bacon (ie the thing it helps you with!) or 2) what you would put in some of those pockets, whether you’re using it for crafting or Bible journaling! Winners will be announced Saturday March 31st.

Coupon for class? Yes please!

For those anxiously awaiting the return of your art classes….a week later, it’s fixed! Ish. The homepage is a little wonky, but use the menu bar and you can navigate around, and the “your courses” link at the top still takes you to your account. So sorry for the inconvenience – and for the plethora of emails you may have gotten today regarding the issue if you’re on all my lists!

Use coupon code thanks5 at checkout, good for $5 off; it’ll last the rest of March (one use per person) – and this doubles as my birthday gift to YOU, since my birthday is this Tuesday!

WATCH FOR CONSTRUCTION POTHOLES: On the Art-Classes site, the big orange button that says “LOG IN” doesn’t work over there but I can’t get it to go away yet. AND when purchasing a class, you may or may not get sent back to the site, even though it DID go through, just go back to the site and your class will be there. We may discover other small broken things, please be gentle with me, I’m flying solo on the web repairs this weekend.

Coming soon to Art-Classes.com: Cloud minicourses in both copic and watercolor, and an AI watercolor course.
