Art Journals, Hand Bound!!

My latest class with My Creative Classroom, Art Journals, Hand Bound has begun!



These Art Journals will be treasured for years to come. This class is jam-packed with loads of techniques! We'll explore paints, chalks, inks and mists. We'll decorate each page in the books as well as create the covers and then finish them with a hand sewn binding. They can be created with Metal coverings or without.




This class will run for 4 weeks and each week we'll cover several techniques. By the end of class, you'll have created two journals perfect for keeping your art thoughts, or for scrapbooks or just to enjoy!



Class started Monday,October 19, 2009 but you can sign up here until Wednesday, October 28th.  Don't worry about catching up, class has only just begun.  Sign up today and you can jump right in and download and print or sit and watch the many presentations already ready for you!

I hope to see you in the classroom!

A One-Stop Holiday Shopping Event!

It's not even Halloween yet but I have a ONE STOP SHOPPING EVENT to tell you about!




Mark your calendars...

On Saturday, November 14th from 11AM - 2PM, you can stop and do all your Holiday shopping in one place!  The Hawley's are opening their home to you!  Come stop and shop at their beautiful new home at 264 Court Street, Plymouth, MA.

Which vendors will be there?  You can expect to see business women from:

Stella and Dot
Stampin Up
Tastefully Simple
Beijo
Athena's Home Novelties
Southern Living at Home

There will be 100's of dollars in free give-aways, personal one-on-one shopping experience, sparkly drinks, festive foods and of course, you'll be supporting local women and their businesses.

I hope you mark your calendars and stop by this event.  Where else can you go and shop in one place and get all these different companies under one roof?  Maybe I'll see you there!

You've gotta check it out!

I was stumbling through some friends blog rolls and I found this one:  http://cakewrecks.blogspot.com/

Holey Moley, Batman!  Some of these actually made me laugh out loud!  Keep scrolling through some of the previous posts.  Check out some of the pictures and the comments they make.  Hilarious!

OK, I'm going to stop procrastinating...

Where'd "Tomorrow" go?

Wow, I had every intention of posting more last week.  I don't know where on Earth my time goes.  What with working 2+ jobs from home, running a household, helping with homework, cooking, cleaning, keeping track of my weight watcher points, laundry, volunteering at the kids school, doctor appointments, shopping, helping my son's cub scout den, exercise, friends and family who knows.  It's lost in daily life.  I'm not complaining.  I enjoy my life.  I love what I do and I love my family, friends and the hectic schedule.  But I do wish one thing. 

I wish I wasn't a P-R-O-C-R-A-S-T-I-N-A-T-O-R. 

It drives me nuts.

I like to think that I'm an organized person.  Lists litter my workspace, charts, graphs, even sticky notes on the bathroom mirror once in a while.  Lists on my phone, lists on the fridge, lists in my pocket book, heck if I could stick a list on the dog for her to carry around for me - I just might!  But the one thing I do perfectly is procrastinate.

Take now for instance, should I be working? Yes.  Do I need to make this post about my lack of motivation?  Maybe.  OK, - see there's my justification.  Hehe!  No, I probably don't.  Cause really, you didn't come here to listen to my woes about procrastination.  Although, if anyone knows of a good book or online seminar about why I might be a procrastinator, please pass the information this way.  I'd really like to change my ways!

So, without further procrastination, here's the project I've been working on...





How stinkin' cute is that?  I'm loving it!  A little coffin book inside a coffin.  The coffin has some Plum colored metal on it.  Very neat.  This is a class I have scheduled for Friday, October 23.  It's the perfect little mini scrapbook for those people who love to showcase their kids for Halloween!  A little spooky but fun too!  If you are interested in taking this class, I'm going to be teaching it at the Scrapbook Cupboard.  Class is from 7-10PM.  You make everything!  The coffin is made from cardstock and the book inside is card stock too.  There's a little metal and adhesive and lots of fun!

Now I've got some time today and I've got a list to tackle.  I guess I should stop this insane procrastination and get on my way!

Last Chance!

It's been a whirlwind over here.  I'm always feeling like I'm catching up on something.  My to do list is about 12 inches long, single spaced! 

I just received an email today saying that it was the last chance to sign up for my Metal Sampler at My Creative Classroom!  So, if you haven't had a chance to do it and have been thinking about it, now is the time!  Enrollment ends October 7th!

Tomorrow, I'll have pictures up of a project I'm working on. It's not quite done yet.

Lot's of exciting things going on here!
