I love the project that Heidi has on her blog right now. She has a HO3 printout that is perfect for teachers, librarians, aides, the school secretary, all of those people who touch your childrens' lives on a daily basis. I can not tell you how easy it was to print, cut and paste on the candy bar. It even has different hair colors for the for the cute little pop-up girlie face (yes they have boys too). You KNOW I picked the one with the bow right? My girl loves her bows, the bigger the better :) I used a little pink Stickle on the bow and that is all I did. I bought the flowers at Michael's and used a little tulle to tie around the candy bar. The entire project took 1 hour and 15 minutes from print to stickle.......so easy. I plan to add a gift card to the principal's candy :) Hugs

I had so much fun over the weekend at the Danbury Retreat but I also got so much done. I got caught up on Project 365 and that was no easy trick :)
I also worked on a cute little book for Reagan's first grade teacher. The kids all made their own pages for the book and i put the cover together. Of coarse, you know i used flowers (I am in my flower period right now, wink) and some of those cute Hambly butterfly transparencies. What do you think, did it come out alright?
The other project was a Pink Paisley project taught at the store a month or so back. If you ever get a chance to take a PP class, DO IT.....Their kits are TOTALLY jam packed with goodies. I think i will use it to document our summer at the beach....
Lastly, I got the greatest RAK today from Dawn Hueber on the CE 09 Yahoo site. LOVE is all so much and have already opened the stamps......Thanks girl, I will pay it forward......Hugs

I love this video of Steve using the new Tim Alcohol Ink Blendable Pens....He and his wife Linda are regulars at the store, but I have never really seen Steve create. Let me tell you, his make and take was the most unique and beautiful at the table. The sample Steve made will be available to view at the store. Thank you to each and every one of you who spent the weekend with us at Danbury. I had a blast and I hope you did too....Hugs

Well we are here and this place is gorgeous.....REALLY.....the antiques and decorations are just amazing. We arrived last night with a carivan of 9 fabulous ladies all ready to set up shop for the weekend. There is a cute check-in desk, large kitchen, and a beautiful grand room where we set up the store and areas for us to crop. Tanya and I worked on Project 365 last night. Tanya got all caught up last night. I have about 2 weeks of journaling to go but will finish it this morning. Tanya is working on Karen Tabor's circle journal book right now. I just heard from Susan in New York and she did a 24 hour turn around on Shannon's circle journal. She is the kind of friend everyone needs, she had a job to do and she did it. She is just girlfriend bling, shiney, bright and always makes you smile. I need to get off and get to work. Hugs.

I hope you all had a great day with your families. I had a great weekend with family. We each took our mom's out to lunch on Saturday and gave each of them gifts. I can never thank my mom enough for all she has done over the years. She has been a wonderful role model and is such a friend to me. She lives near me now and i am so grateful for that. It is nice being able to see her whenever i want.....she lives 5 minutes from me now :)
So THANKS mom.....YOU ROCK!! I love you

Well, WHAT A WEEKEND!!!! Heidi Swapp was in town to teach at By Design.
It was everything I expected and more. She just has such amazing and fresh ideas. It was also fun to spend time with 13 women who will be attending Creative Escape. I also saw lots of familiar faces and met some new friends as well.
My friend Christa was in town from Arizona and was able to spend Saturday with all of us. My friend Tanya was able to take the friday class and crop for a while. A special thanks to Tracy, who ALWAYS brings in the best and brightest in the industry. Hugs
