Big Announcements and a Chance to Win...

I have two exciting announcements!

•I have a NEW on-line workshop opening on April 18 and two people will win a seat in my class!
•I am going to ROMANIA on a mission trip.

Here are the details:
This is my biggest, jam-packed most ambitious workshop to date! Join me for new techniques and tips, new products and five (Yes, FIVE!) ARTastic projects to keep for yourself or give as gifts.

In 25+ videos, you will see my step by step process illustrating how we will work together to:

-CREATE multi-layered, yummy collaged canvases that will then be transformed as we
-CONSTRUCT a large, pocketed, clutch style journal with inspiring
-AFFIRMation cards to guide us on our journey as creative souls.
-Then in three BONUS projects, we will create a wallet styled mini journal, a gift pouch, and a mail art piece to share with treasured friends.

There is so much to tell you that it is truly easier to just show you...



I have a passion for doing mission work and when a last-minute opportunity presented itself, I just couldn't pass it up! Clearly, I had to combine the two and share my excitement with you.

Because of the world-wide demand to learn English, Christians partnering with Let’s Start Talking Ministry have a unique opportunity to show the love of Christ while the Word speaks to open hearts.

Use THIS link to visit my personal web page and for every $5 tax deductible donation (US), you will be entered (3 times) to win one of two spots in the Collage, Construct & Affirm Workshop!

Winners will be announced on Monday, April 16 at 11PM EST.

I can't tell you how much it means to me to be a part of this mission team. I truly appreciate any support you may offer.

Have a  blessed day!

I have donated but because I live outside the US it is not tax deductible. Hope you have a great trip.

My son went to Romania on a missions trip when he was in High School. It changed his life! Blessings to you as you prepare to go!!

I am excited for you Roben Marie. I did youth ministry work way back in college years and it is so very rewarding. I just know you will have the experience of a lifetime. In a way I think you are starting the journey as a new canvas and during your time many colors and textures will be added that will touch your life in many deep and life changing ways. This is really, really big news and I am happy and delighted for you I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. And of course the new class sounds fantastic and I might just have to join in on the fun. xxxoooxxx

Wow so cool. My husband has been on a mission trip to Romania with Global expeditions, and I went to New York on a missions trip to work with Metro Ministries. We're hoping to be able to go on a trip together as team leaders with GE in the future hopefully next summer.

Hi Roben-Marie .. . your workshop sounds exciting! But, I don't sew or even have a machine! It would be a treat to win a place in the class just the same and I'd just work around the sewing. Your mission trip sounds wonderful..

April 7, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBarb Smith

I am so excited for your trip to Romania, and doubly excited for an opportunity to support your mission trip! LST has been around for a long time, and I am a firm believer in the work they do! Blessings to you as you go!

Yikes! Color explosion of the best kind!..........fasten 'yo seat belts.

I'd LOVE to see Romania. Please take notes and sketch so that we can "join you" as you go.
I'd love to see a passport cover done in Roben-Marie style!

Beautiful artwork :) Thanks for the chance to win a spot in your class :) It will be interesting to see how your mission trip infuses into your artwork. Anything like that that changes your life-will show up in your art!

Congratulations on both exciting events! I hope you will offer the workshop again in the future as my funds are too limited at this time to donate to your trip =-(
However, I will certainly sign up for your Urban Journal class since I've had funds for that class earmarked for a very long time!

I don't usually comment, but I just had to wish a pleasant stay in my home-country! I hope you'll like it here! :)
