Thrown a Curve Ball…

Apr 28, 2009

Yes­ter­day cer­tain­ly was one of those kin­da days. Moth­er Nature is some­thing you don’t want to mess with and yes­ter­day she real­ly hit Ft. Worth with severe thun­der­storms packed full of light­en­ing… my daugh­ter Ter­ri’s super adorable apart­ment is now declared unliv­able. Star-Telegram arti­cle My thoughts and prayers go out to the two fire­fight­ers that were injured. I hope they are doing okay and I thank them for their efforts. I will be away for a few days try­ing to help Ter­ri sal­vage sen­ti­men­tal items. And just so you know the Nation­al Scrap­book Day Work­shop is still a go. I have the pri­vate mem­ber area already set up and sched­uled to start as planned May 2nd. I hope those of you that take the work­shop have lots of...

Weekend Run Down…

Apr 26, 2009

I hope you all had a won­der­ful week­end. I had lots of fun yes­ter­day chat­ting with every­one dur­ing Cocoa Daisy’s Spring Crop. That mes­sage board was hop­ping. I also start­ed get­ting the projects ready for my sum­mer work­shop. Lots of red, white and blue hap­pen­ing in my scrap­room right now. Today Alan and I worked real­ly hard get­ting my “Vin­tage Sam­pler” work­shop ready to debut for Nation­al Scrap­book Day on Sat­ur­day, May 2nd. This is a free work­shop. If you are inter­est­ed you can sign up for it here. I have the sup­ply list post­ed so you can have every­thing ready to cre­ate Sat­ur­day.

I love great mail days…

Apr 24, 2009

I received some great pat­terned papers the oth­er day. I love the Lit­tle Guy line by Melis­sa Frances. I think it is going to work per­fect­ly for my upcom­ing sum­mer work­shop. And the French Twist White and Cream Pearls are fab­u­lous! If you have nev­er ordered from Scrap-Din­er you are miss­ing out on some great cus­tomer ser­vice. Sher­ine always gets her orders out fast and her ship­ping is excel­lent. Plus she always includes a lit­tle sweet thank you like...

Happy Birthday Sweet Pea…

Apr 23, 2009

We are cel­e­brat­ing a big birth­day today. Ter­ri turns 21 years old. I first saw this altered cup­cake box on Ran­jini’s blog many many months ago. She found the cup­cake box at Tues­day Morn­ing. I imme­di­ate­ly ran to ours to see if they had some and I got lucky. They had two left which I imme­di­ate­ly grabbed as I knew I would be using them as mon­ey hold­ers for Ter­ri’s 21st and Ans­ley’s Sweet 16 next year. The box is quite plain but has such poten­tial for alter­ing. The can­dle is held on by a mag­net although I attached mine to the top per­ma­nent­ly. Below is what it looks like before a lit­tle vin­tage sheet music, book page flow­ers, pearls, lace and glit­ter have been added. Enjoy your day Ter­ri. We love you...

Still can’t believe it and have count­ed the total num­ber of projects 3 times and each time it comes out to be 100!!! I can say I am pret­ty  much fin­ished with my book. I just have a few cap­tions to write which is noth­ing after this huge cre­ative under­tak­ing. I love the direc­tion the design­er is going with my book… it will be so me and I am so THRILLED I can hard­ly stand it.

Fun little game…

Apr 3, 2009

So I just fin­ished my 90th project for my book. This means I only have 10 more projects left to fin­ish. I thought it would be fun to give a Maya Road RAK to the per­son that comes clos­est to the date (with­out going over) of when I will com­plete my 100th book project. All you have to do is leave a com­ment with the date and the per­son clos­est will win the RAK.… if two peo­ple guess the same date Ans­ley will pick the lucky win­ner. Oh just so you know my final dead­line is May 5th. So don’t guess after this date. We are to the half way point in my Hip­pi­ty Hop East­er Work­shop. The last day for this work­shop is April 18th. If you want to join in and cre­ate...
