I really need to get the hang of this thing.....

So I know it has been too long. What can I say? Life happens.

My Very Merry Mini Album class at Scrapbook Territory went very well. Both times. I had a total of 16 people take the class. Lots of fun. Everyone had a great time, including me.

Because it is coming up on December and schedules being what they are, I am working on Valentine's Day projects to be on the schedule in January. One will be (and here is a surprise) Cosmo Cricket's Hey Sugar line with zutter and ring bindings and stickers and.... well, you know the rest. Lots of cool stuff.

The other class is with the Bo Bunny LOVE book, you know the one with the letters at the end of the page. I was going to use the Rusty Pickle Chocolate Kisses line but I found out that the Basic Grey line for Valentine's Day will be at Scrapbook Territory on December 15th, so I will be making the sample with that paper. Wait until you see the paper. It is not to be believed. Very very cute.

On a personal note, we enjoyed our Thanksgiving holiday with the neighbors. They invited us to join their family for the day. Lovely people. All I had to do was a Lemon Meringue pie. How easy is that? There was just a ton of food featuring 7 (yes seven) different kinds of pie. Who needs turkey with all that pie?

Hope this post finds you all well. Favorite new product this week? Urban Lilly hidden journaling cards. Best thing added to clearance this week? Rusty Pickle coupon books for $3.49.

More later.

Running to Catch Up (again)

It has been a while since I have been here and so much has been happening!

First of all, and most fun, I taught my first class at Scrapbook Territory yesterday! I had a great group of very very talented customers and, although it took a little longer (really a lot longer) than scheduled, everybody had a great time. Beautiful Mini Christmas Albums using Cosmo Cricket product. So many sign ups for the first session, that we have added another session in a few weeks. How great is that.

Secondly, and almost as much fun, I worked for Rusty Pickle at the Sacramento Expo. It was a great three days, lots and lots of fun. Alaina, Brenda, and Beth were fantastic and so great to work with. Some of the gang from Scrapbook Territory were there. It was so good to see them.

Chris is in the midwest on his tour of the family. He spent time with Melissa and Kevin (and Jacques, of course), on to Cincy to visit Dad, Phij and Nancy and now in Peoria to see Geoff, Missy and the babies. I'm jealous. He has promised pictures of all of his stops. More to crop, just what I needed.
