In August 2014 I purchased a Silhouette Cameo to handle the fussy cutting of my stamped images (something else I don’t do well – fussy cutting that is). I definitely did not utilize my machine to its fullest potential as I really on cut paper… until… I attended “All Things Silhouette” created by Terry Johnson Creates (TJC) in June of 2017. During the event I learned so much – really it was like drinking from a fire hydrant! As part of the event were given many new mediums to work with & a little machine called a Mint. What I soon realized is that I can do so much more than fussy cut with the Cameo and the Mint was yet another opportunity to create. So I decided to take a leap and try to make a few things and give them to loved ones. Well from there one thing led to another (by that I mean I purchased a Curio) and I discovered that the possibilities are endless.
Now, why am I telling you all this?
Well I have been seeking an opportunity that will allow me to create, continue to learn, to help others do likewise, and above all will still allow me be available for my mother and Tom’s dad – as the needs arise.
Since ATS by TJC I have continued to YouTube, follow/stalk on Facebook & create along the way. In December of 2017, TJC announced an opportunity that I felt drawn to attend – Terry Johnson Creates Licensed Instructor course/weekend. And I am proud to announce that I have just returned from the fantastic weekend in Woodbridge, VA with Terry Johnson Creates and her fantastic group of “lovely assistants” and I am now officially:
So if you have any of the Silhouette machines at home that are currently serving as a paperweight, maybe even still in the box, or perhaps you just would like to learn more about the amazing possibilities of your machine. Reach out to me, I will be holding classes, one-on-one instruction & perhaps even day or weekend retreats.

Until then, happy crafting!
