Craft with Heart

Have you seen our newest addition yet? We now have a subscription! I have attached a video so you can see just what you will get in the box when you receive it. If you are a seasoned scrapper and believe these are way too easy - let me tell you just how beautiful these pages are. They are ready to be "blinged" up. If you are in a hurry to get pages done - these pages are for you! If you want to gift these pages to someone who is starting - these pages are just for you!


And there is more:


We still have some wonderful bargains in our clearance section and dont' forget our "Going Soon" section.
I am working on my virtual classes - please let me know if you are interested. I will be running them on Facebook. The only way you will be able to participated in those classes is through Facebook. However, if you would like to purchase any of the kits, please let me know. I always want to take care of my customers!

Please check out my website - we have so many cool specials going right now. The new book is so wonderful - I am having a real hard time deciding what to get. I don't have to tell you, what I decided. Just have a look at my craft room - ha!

It seems like I am finally on the mend with my surgery, etc. So, my next card class will be on Oct. 25 at 10 am and 7 pm at my home. I will post them through Facebook, meetup and my blog as well. Please keep in touch so you will not miss the dates of future classes. This month I will forgo my scrapbook classes, I would like to start in November again - please let me know your preferences. Thank you!

One more word - I was happy to have participated in early October in the Super Scrapper Crop - their first here in Orlando and it seemed that everybody had a ball! I posted a picture on my social media - you may have caught it (me and CoCo, mascot of the hotel). I met a lot of great ladies there. It is always nice to see all the wonderful creativity at those crops. Let me tell you - scrappers have a friendship all of their own, it just does not match anything else. That is why have stuck with it for almost 25 years now in this business. So - keep scrapping, make those lifelong friendships and keep those memories :)

Margit
Enjoy - I would love to hear from you!

Hello and thank you for stopping by!

This is my first attempt on a blog - can you tell? I am sure you can. From what I have learned about blogs they are like an online journal and you are getting a peak into my soul ...

At this time I am trying to learn how to post my artwork with watermark and copyright and all that jazz -but I a, learning. My plan is to post my work and along with it I will explain what I used and how I made the project.

As we go along, I will also give you a peak into my life. I will share some pictures of my family, places we have been, places we have visited. So, please come back and visit often. Just know, that I am very new to this blogging thing! So, at this time - any help you can give me is highly appreciated in growing my skills in "blogging".

If you live close to me and you would like to join me in my craft place or one my crops please, check my calendar for any upcoming workshops!
