This summer I am taking my “show” on the road! I am thrilled and excited to be traveling up through northern California and up through Oregon and Washington. Are you aware that if I am in your area you can schedule me to come and teach my wonderful workshops in your home. Just invite at least 5 of your friends and I will come and present to your group! These workshops are each 2 hours in length and the cost for the workshop including all workshop material is only $35.00 per person. If you live up in northern California, Oregon or Washington, email me so I can give you some dates as to when I will be in your area!
