Well, TTFN eveyone. The sickie is calling......
9:26pm: The sick child is in bed so I thought I would edit this post to share the following project I did for the Spring Issue of Creative Techniques Magazine. It's shown inside the magazine as well - along with a nice little 12 x 12 page I did of my little sick Valentine. I used mostly Basic Grey for this project and a 12 x 24 Canvas Concepts canvas - gotta love them TOO!

I also would like to give myself a little round of applause - as I finished my Mother's birthday present - from 2 years ago! Well, when I started it I had no distractions to speak of - and along came two book contracts, traveling, moving, building a house, deadlines for EK and what have you....but it's done. Just in time for me to start another birthday present for her - and it's due on March 28th. I think I'll choose something a little less involved....and before I submit that idea for the 3rd book.....people - am I crazy or what? So, this is some kinda crazy Art quilt that I am totally loving....and thinking maybe I should make one for myself....
Have a great day everyone!

We had tons of fun this past weekend. Catherine Scanlon's sewing on paper class was so much fun we have rescheduled her for Saturday, March 31, for a two class session in sewing on paper and chipboard. (I am so excited that I actually had a chance to sew on chipboard...it looked so foreign to me!) We are making an 8x8 chipboard album, covered with sewn elements, using the new black & red Basic Grey papers. The afternoon class will have instruction for making either artist trading cards or 8x8 scrapbook pages. We will learn to sew the 8x8 page protectors to hold ATCs or leave them plain for 8x8 pages--your choice. Details on price and time to follow. Please call the store if you are interested. Catherine did a super job teaching the class, and everyone went home with a gorgeous finished project.
So, I have permission from the fun girls in the class to post these pictures so you can get an Idea of how much fun we had:

I couldn't make a post without a picture so I thought I would share an old layout I did of my Streppie....so cute. And, I love the way the picture turned out in Photoshop.
Anyway, off to Topsfield Mass. to teach at Absolutely Everything....I'll talk to you peeps on Monday. Have a great weekend - and stay away from all the germs out there, LOL.

The show was productive in that I made lots of great things for EK using the new products. The Simply Classic line practically makes itself - I made 4 12 x 12 layouts, a card, a block photo holder and something else - ALL in one day. On my floater day I made some giftie things for the Michael's website. I always love rooming with Carla - and seeing Elizabeth, and Becky is always a great time. Danielle is so funny. Oh, and I got carded at OUtback one night....that must have been the highlight of the show!! I also learned how to use the Circle Scissor Plus, ladies this is a must have tool! I also brought home lots of new products from EK that I can't wait to use.
Anyway, as soon as I get some of the pictures of my Martha gig I'll post them! Until then - you'll have to imagine how nervous I was!
