Some cards to whet your appetite

Here are some cards I’ve worked on the in the past few days. I’ve used two stamp sets, and leftover pieces of cardstock and patterned paper from the Juliette collection. I hope you enjoy them. For information about the open house this weekend go here.

This is what I’ve been listening to the past few days. I hope you enjoy it.

Kids books we love

I just wanted to recommend some picture book favorites. I went into my son’s school and read these to his class today, and they all seemed to enjoy them.

The first is one my son requested, and is a fun look at the common complaint “I’m bored!”

This is the second book I read, and it has some fun wordplay on color and cool text design. We’ve had this book for years, and I still love reading it to the kids.The last is one we’ve had for a couple years, and is a fun way of finding different ways of describing the same person. If I get a chance to, I’ll be using it to work on a book with my son’s class. I hope we can manage to do that, because I know I’ll have fun doing it.

Enjoy the stories!

Open House January 24

Finally getting back in the saddle again, and restarting my monthly open house. This month the free class will be an embossing workshop, for those just getting into and exploring the wonderful world of stamps. For those of you who are looking for scrapbooking or journaling projects, we’ll make our own mini-book, using the bind-it-all and the DCWV brights chipboard stack. The class fee for that is $5, to cover supply costs. Here’s a photo to get your book-making ideas flowing:
Please let me know which class you’d be interested in, and if you have any requests.
I’ll be here from 12-5 on the 24th, and I’ll have snacks to ward off the empty stomach grumpies. Kids are welcome, and will be sent to play upstairs with mine if they don’t want to make things with the grown-ups. Please let me know if you have any dog or cat issues, so I can get the fur beasts out of our hair if I need to. Email me for directions. Hope to see you soon!
