The Flu

Seems like forever since my last post, I decided to have the dreaded flu. Today I feel a little better so I may try to work in my Art room. I hate being sick and the flu knocked the socks off me.

My Nana's middle name was Bluebell and everyone called her that. She taught me to love all crafts and I owe her the ability to do what I do.

Card Class at Piktails

I'm so excited I'm back teaching. I sent emails out yesterday and got a response right away. I called the owner back as soon as I saw her email and we set a time to meet today. Well I'm proud and excited to tell you all I will be teaching at a great store in Orlando called Piktails. The owner Debbie is wonderful and she carries some amazing products and has about everything you can think of. Her customers are mainly scrapbookers who would like to start cardmaking as well. I'll be teaching rubber stamping, scrapbooking and other projects. These are the cards for the first class. Hooray!!!!

Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas

Many of you know I am a Tim Holtz fan. I have had the privalge of taking several classes with him and as a teacher he is incredable and he is one of the most supportive people I know. Last year when I wa submitting to my first Design team ever he took the time to look at my creation, after I wasn't chosen, and really made me feel better he had the nicest comments and you could tell they were genuine.

For the past few years he has been doing his 12 days of Christmas tags and each day gives out great prizes. The fun starts December 1st so make sure you check his blog for all the details I know you'll love them.
