Here comes Santa Claus.....

As Christmas is almost here I am just full of
memoriesand happy thoughts!
I must also have 2 little girls on my brain
which is why these pics jumped out at me. It was so much
fun having 2 little girls. Now they are big, but they
each have a little girl of their own. So, once again at Christmas
time there are 2 little girls to think about. Sooo much
fun to buy for little girls isn't it????? and the boys
they only put 3 things each on their lists and their stuff
is not fun to shop for or to buy....
I am not doing so good in that department.
It is much more fun to think about
the little girls & their moms....
I am such a girl.....
& on that note....much to do!!!!!!

Fab Classes for Home Decor Pieces....this weekend~

"Objects in Time"

This is an amazing 24" working clock. Every individual clock is truly one of a kind.

This will be taught Friday the 9th 5-9 p.m. at Mystic Paper in Mesa. It will be the last time I teach this one.

The paper and a lot of the embellishments are being discontinued

so this will be the last chance before it retires.....

This is also a beauty.... a jewelry board
that will organize that perfect bling
of yours or someone else's if it's for a gift.
You will also learn some fun technique's in this class.
I will be teaching this one in Payson on Saturday at
Paper & Metal Scrappers from 9:30-12:30.
This one is also retiring....I have to make room
for some great upcoming classes in 2011.
Big plans, great inspiration, I can hardly wait....
{if anyone is interested in kits on either of these please email me}
I would need to figure out individual shipping on these. Thanks!!!!~.Posted by Picasa

just a few unfinished projects.....

So...I just needed a few empty containers to sort my class supplies into. Which turned into finding all sorts of unfinished projects...paper for mini albums I had stashed away and on and on. So I have finished these up......... .....partially. My goal is to have photos in them when I say that but hey, that turns ino a whole jumble of a mess too...Anyway the top one is a kit I got from Ellen. I had to alter it some I just couldn't do the blue and pink scrabble board. It wasn't working for me. The next one is just a little thing and I can't even remember starting that one. All I really did is add some ribbons and trims and it was finished. I think it will be a "gramma's brag book" After all I like to brag about those cute little girls of mine!!!~ The next one was a big stash of paper I had from last year. I made my mother-in-law one for her B-DAY which happens to be my B-DAY too...sooooo of course I had to make me one. AND after all I have sooooo many more Christmas pics to get in albums. This one is BELIEVE #2. I will post what else I have stored up because I am on a mission. Inbetween football games, babysitting Miss Hallie, being a mom, and classes and stuff.... ya' know~'s all good!~

When I was going through my photos to put in

this album that's what hit me the most was how magical

christmas really is. The love in our homes,

the excitement, the traditions, the bringing of loved ones together.

In this fun 5x7 mini album I have used Bo-Bunny's new Christmas line,

along with some christmas flashcards, playing cards, reproductions of Vintage

Christmas cards. There is some stamping, some die cuts, & one of my favorite new

mediums glass bead gel.

It gives this album a real magical christmas feel.

Of course a ton of fringe, trims & ribbons!!

We will be sewing a {little} too, I just love the look don't you?

Oh for the fun memories in this book!!!!Posted by Picasa
