Many Hands Holiday Open House

I am participating in the 2nd Annual Many Hands Holiday Open House on Friday, November 30th. I hope some of you will find a moment or two in your day to stop by and check out all the great hand-crafted items that will be there! Please feel free to forward this to any of your friends in the area that would enjoy stopping by or print this out and add to the bulletin board where you work. I am hoping to have copies of my second book, Art from the Heart available for purchase.

In other news, well - the same news really....I've been busy in my studio making pretty little things for this show and one from this past weekend, so sorry for those of you that are sick of looking at the water stain on my floor. The Contractor did send a man out to come fix it - but we haven't had any heavy rain since so I am not sure if he actually did a good job or not.

I am also happy to announce that my entry "Remember this Moment" in the Prima Paintables contest came in first. That was a great accomplishment for me - THANK you to all of you who cheered me on.

Also, I've got two classes coming up at Scrapbooks & Beyond next month. The dates still need to be locked down, but here are the descriptions. (I am pretty sure they will be morning classes because that's what many people are looking for)

Card Technique Class: It seems like everywhere we look people are talking about recycling and being green....if you are interested in our environment AND love making cards then this class is for you. Join Catherine on (whatever morning we choose from 10am to 1pm) to make three cards using recycled materials, some beautiful Christine Adolph papers (and stamps) just in, cardstock and watercolor paints. Not only are you making a beautiful card to send to that special someone - but they can frame it for a pretty reminder of you. We will also learn how to make custom sized envelopes using a standard sized envelope template.... Cost: $20.00 Please bring your standard tool kit. Vintage Christmas: Are you running ragged this holiday season and need a break to make something pretty for yourself? Join Catherine on December (whenever) for a fun class of miniature canvas'. We'll make two 4 x 6 hanging canvas' to decorate that little spot (or give to the hostess of your family Christmas Party, teacher or special friend) using pretty papers, stamps, crackle paint, vintage music sheets, watercolor paints and wire. Please bring your standard tool kit. Cost: $20.00

Well, ta ta for to the flea market for baby doll parts and vintage music sheets...
