During the past 18 months Prima Marketing appeared on my radar as a “new” company. No, they aren’t new, at least not T H A T new but I hadn’t really noticed them before. Perhaps it is because I’m not a “scrapbooker” (I’ve never made an album or a page layout), or maybe it’s because I focused for so long on Tim Holtz, who is an amazing source of creative inspiration to many of us.

Whatever the reason, the first Prima product I remember buying was a stencil. A retired stencil at that. Retirement = a chance to dust off your Internet searching skills. I’d used it in a class and fell in love with it. I searched and searched online and finally found it on eBay.

Prima has orchestrated a huge marketing campaign over the course of 2014, rolling out new and expanding existing programs. One new program is the Prima Brand Ambassador group, of which I am a member another is the Art-Venture 2-day art event. The first Art-Venture was held last January in Anaheim and the class pictures coming out of the event were stunning.

As a treat to myself I decided, mostly on a whim, to sign up for the 2nd event on January 5 – 8 in Anaheim, CA. I’d considered trying to combine attendance at my bucket list event, CHA, which begins on January 10th but, alas, work calls me home. CHA will have to wait for another year.

There are six workshops during the two-day event taught by an exciting array of international educators:

Below is a snapshot of the six projects I will get to create while I’m at Art-Venture in Anaheim. I can’t believe I fly in 5 short days! I will of course blog about my experiences at this amazing event when I return – so stay tuned!
