The new Seasonal Expressions is here!

I am so excited to introduce the newest book - the Expressions 2 for this year. You will not believe all the fun new products in this little book! You will have to just see them to appreciate them. You can check them all out  here. I will highlight some of the new items in my blog and on my facebook page, so be sure to follow me in both areas.

Be sure to know that the Annual Idea book will be good through July. The Expressions is good through August. So, make sure you get all the goodies you like before those dates.

Workshops and classes

This is one of the cards we made at the last workshop in April. it is always fun to get together and make new friends - I love it! We also made a couple of more cards using the water color pallet from Close to my Heart.
The next class will be May 26 and I will offer a morning and evening class. Please let me know as soon as possible, if you would like to attend.
Also, if you are interested in a crop, please let me know what times and days will work out best for you and I will try to make it work for you. I am working on getting some facebook parties together. The new live option is exciting, which means I can show you some really exciting techniques. I can show you some of the new products and I can answer your questions right then and there! The party will not last a week, but just one hour - you may even want to consider that as an option for you to have a party. Invite your friends and I will have a party for you! Forget cleaning your house :) Let me know and I will help you with the details.

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!

A scrapbooker's quilting bee!
