What You Need to Know... October 22, 2105

The best news, I celebrated a birthday last week with my family and a few of my great friends. It was a wonderful day, or rather week, as there were many great things happening throughout the week. I LOVE birthdays, it is the only time that you can celebrate just being "YOU," and not necessarily having to share the day with anyone else. I say that carefully, as my own husband does celebrate his special day with his mother. So, yes, I know there are those of you out there who have to share. The only child in me does appreciate the fact that I do celebrate alone, in other areas of life I am good at sharing. A good example is the sharing that happens at workshops.

Speaking of workshops... The next card workshop is coming up on November 5th 6:00-9:00 pm, 5 cards/$10 (all supplies included). The theme will be Christmas. Have you been checking my blog or Facebook?! Three of the cards are already posted. Give me a shout out through Facebook or e-mail if you are coming to join in on the fun. All of my contact information is listed at the bottom of this post.

Tonight's club - Sangria Scrapbooking WOTG had to be postponed. My family is not celebrating as much this week as we were last. My husband and youngest son have been home sick since the weekend. A real bummer for them and for us paper crafters who were looking forward to some club time. We will regroup and set a new date really SOON. Thank you for your understanding, and please keep a good thought for me to NOT get this bug they seem so attached to right now, and especially for them to heal.

Stamp of the Month - Are you in love with the Twinkle stamp set like I am? Well, you have until October 31 to get your own. Place a minimum of $50* order on my website, purchase the set for $5 or you can purchase the set alone for $17.95* (*plus shipping costs).

All right paper crafters, I hope you are all getting creative. We need to start plugging away at our Christmas cards. The mailing dates are quickly approaching I noticed on the post office window today. Share what you are creating with the rest of us, we would love to celebrate your accomplishments.

Enjoy!

An Evening of Synergy - October 9, 2015

Ghosts, Goblins, Witches oh my... Stamps were flying around the Halloween themed workshop table last night like you wouldn't believe. The creative energy was flowing among the paper crafters. I take such delight in seeing each one of them challenge themselves to change-up the sample cards to make each one of the five cards their own. It is once again fun to relive the night by sharing them with you in this "An Evening of Synergy."

All products are Close To My Heart (current and retired):

World Card Making Day 2015

Yay! The weekend is here and Netflix has a new season of Revenge. Taking the day to relax and watch a few of the episodes before evening activities. In honor of it being World Card Making Day, I did take some time to use a few supplies I have recently found at garage sales and local box stores to create my first Halloween card of the year.
