Card Class

On Thursday night I had a Card Class at my house. It was a little bit of a smaller group this month but we still had a great time! I wanted to share what we made this month. So I hope you enjoy the pictures.

My next card class will be on Saturday, October 4th in the morning. I am having this class on a Saturday because that is National Card Making Day, so what better way to celebrate than to make cards!

I will be having a scrapbook class in September, check out my website for the date and times.

I spent most of my day scrapbooking with my Grandma Mary. Someone from work asked her to make a scrapbook for her grand baby and she would pay for the materials and for my grandma's time. My grandma being the great woman that she is called me and said that whatever she earned from making the book she would donate it to our Liberia Missions Trip fund. Thank you Grandma! You are the greatest, I couldn't have asked for a better person in my life. I love you!!

We were able to get most of the book complete today. Her friend at work is going to be surprised on Monday. I hope she likes all the pages we did.

OK, off to bed it is already after midnight and I have church in the morning. Good night!

Back to Work!

Well I am home from my trip to Oklahoma. We had a great time, the girls that went with me were a blast! We have so many funny stories from the trip or at least at late hours of the night the things that happened were funny!

Now it is time to work! I am back to at work this morning catching up. I also started prepping for my card class on Thursday. I have two of the cards done for the class and maybe a third one, depends on whether or not I can come up with anything different or cuter. So tonight I must work on my cards so that I can have them done by tomorrow night. The most time consuming thing will be cutting all the material, although it looks like I will be having a little smaller group this Thursday then most card classes I have. Hopefully my latest order will get here by Thursday so I can give my club members their order.

Well I hope you all have a wonderful week! Back to work I go....

This is a GREAT Week!

I have a full week ahead of me starting with a lil birthday get together tonight for my Sister Alison. Happy Birthday Ally! Alison turned 15 today. Boy am I starting to feel older! I have 6 sisters and Alison is the second to last of all 7 of us girls.
Tomorrow night I have Stamp Club and then Wednesday I leave for Oklahoma and won't be back until Saturday afternoon. I need to finish up my projects for Stamp Club and I still need to pack for my trip. I also need to get rolling on the cards for my upcoming card class on the 21st.
Today is the first day to order from the New Catalog. You can view the catalog on my website if you want to take a look at all the great new items I can't wait to get some of the new items I am ordering. I wish I could order everything on my wish list but I am budgeting for my upcoming Missionay Trip to Liberia. I only have 3 months until we leave for Africa. Yikes! Time is flying by fast.
If you have any questions please make sure to call me. I will have my cell phone and a catalog near by at all times.

New Catalog!

Yesterday during my lunch I drove home to see if the box of new catalog where there and sure enough they were waiting by the door. Yea!!!! So I ate lunch and fliped through my new catty. It is so great. Now I need to start making a wish list for the items I want to purchase. I was already making a list of what I want to order for my Christmas Card class. I need to set a date for that class.
There are some beautiful new stamp sets, new ribbon, paper, the new In Colors ink & paper, new designer paper, and so much more. I can't wait to share it with everyone. Let me know if you are interested in borrowing a book to look through or one to purchase ($10). Oh, and I'm always up to you hosting a workshop.
My new Stamp Club starts next Tuesday, I wish I had some of this stuff to show my club members. I do have the new colors, some designer paper, and the new scallop punch but I don't have any of the new stamp sets yet. I will get some of those soon.
