  1. I wish I could go! You should film an online tutorial for us that can't attend. :)

  2. Yay! I can't wait to attend. Vanessa and I are so excited. :)

    You Like It? I Made It!

  3. Just wanted to drop a note and express how impressed I am with your outreach and how compassionate you are about your talent. While I'm in awe and sometimes a bit envious ; ) your talent is a GOD given gift. Wish you success at your event and hope all that attend enjoy themselves immensely - Always wanted to visit California and I honestly think I also visit this site because I get to see Cali through your eyes. Anyway Happy MLK, JR Day.

  4. We will wait for your review after this event, as I can't attend this event -:(
