design Team calls

Design Team Call! Whaaaatt?!?

Hey there Creatives! So a little MIA  lately? Yes that is me. Life is full of crazy surprises good and bad  – there have been a lot of both this past month but let’s focus on the positive shall we?

IRL Classes – I have added a classes tab onto my site that includes IRL (in real life) classes! This summer it includes Grapevine and Houston TX. I am super excited to share that TCW has joined me as one of the sponsors for my classes so please check it out! And if you are not local, hang in there there are more opportunities coming really soon!

Mixed Media Mondays- are still going strong on Facebook! If you haven’t been to one, every Monday night at 8pm Central Time  I do something related to Mixed media live on Facebook. Sometimes it’s a demonstration on a new product, or how something works, how to do something related to mixed media or a project. I do giveaways and it’s live so you never know what is going to happen! I love that people can leave comments during and after so I can answer questions as I go or even demonstrate something on the fly if it’s related. My peeps have the best ideas! Join me Mondays at 8 pm CST on Facebook at RitaBarakat1

And now the big big big announcement…DESIGN TEAM CALL!!!!
