Busy times mean Good times, right?!

Well, things are definately picking up for me. My classes have begun at the store and seem to be filling quickly. Next Thursday is the Embellish It class. In this class we will use the popular and sassy Making Memories Cheeky Abby collection to create a 2 pg layout and a card. We'll cover chipboard with paint, ink, and patterned paper and learn how to adapt patterned paper to create customized accents. Plus, not only will we use the fun and playful metal clips, each student will receive a NEW package of MM Texture Tape! Here's the layout:

Not only am I busy teaching, I busy customizing! I have created a few items and sold them on Ebay. Well, I just received my first special order! It is for an altered ABC Lunchbox Tin for a toddler. I have the alphabet list ready to go and will begin the project today! Exciting times here!

Back to Normal....

Whew! I've gotten so behind on everything it seems. I had joined a few too many swaps that were demanding my time plus I was designing sample pages for my upcoming classes. We haven't had anyone sign up for the beginner's class yet but we have decided to keep that class on the books on as an available class. This next Thursday, June 14th, is my Scrapbook 102 class. Here's the layout...

My mom was here for a two week visit! I hadn't seen her in a year so it was really good to hang out with her and get caught up. She came to realize how much my hobby plays a part in my life! I made some gifts for her and my aunt and even made a special page for my mom. She was in the newspaper for her volunteer work so I made a page and framed it for her to hang with her plaque. Now that she has returned home and I've completed my swap obligations, I'm hoping to spend some more time designing and preparing for more classes. Thanks for stopping in! Katie
