Sorry for the lack of blog posts lately! I've been buried under piles of new products dreaming up the new classes that I'll be teaching later this fall and buried under piles of kits that we've been packing for my classes coming up next week in Oklahoma, Texas, and Colorado! I'm teaching 11 classes in 8 days - that's a LOT of kits!
I've gotten a lot of questions about what I'm teaching where, so I thought I'd do an overview... so here goes! I'll put links to the stores and the class descriptions and student supply lists, if you need to refer to those.
Paper Crown, Oklahoma City, OK (405) 848-2389:
I had a lot of fun designing this custom album for Oklahoma. I've never been there and can't wait to visit Oklahoma City and Paper Crown! The store looks like I could just move in!! I've wanted to go there for so long - just to SHOP! - you know I'll take lots of photos to share with you.
The Crafty Scrapper, Waxahachie, TX, (972) 923-3151:
Sunday, September 8, Noon - 3pm, My Great Adventure album, 4-7pm Today Journal album. I'm teaching this class by request one LAST time. I've sent the last 23 kits to the store, so if you'd like this kit or to take this class, it's your last chance (the last of over 300 kits that have been sold! Wow!)
Monday, September 9, 6-9pm, Christmas Joy album. Also back by request, is the Christmas Joy album. As I was making more kits last night, I remembered how much I love this project. It is my favorite October Afternoon collection ever! (Last night as we were packing the kits, my husband said, "Not this kit again!" because he doesn't like packing it because there is so much stuff in the kit, and it's hard to get it all in the kit bag!)
Timeless Menagerie, Fredericksburg, TX, (830) 307-3162: Come on you San Antonio and Austin girls! Make a little trip up to take this darling class and visit this amazing store!
Thursday, September 12, 5-8pm, My Great Adventure album.
Scrap 2 It, Ft. Collins, CO, (970) 797-2174: This is my first visit to Colorado, too! I can't wait to see this little bit of this gorgeous state and meet everyone there at Scrap 2 It! It sounds like such a fun place!
Friday, September 13, 6-9pm, Little Me.
That's my September schedule - in October is my two retreat weekends in Fredericksburg, Texas, with Timeless Menagerie. There is still time to sign up - it's going to be a great time! Lots of peace and quiet and laughter and sharing, AND we'll be making some great projects centered on our theme of discovering what's in our buckets! You can read more about it HERE and sign up HERE. I'm praying for just the right number of people and just the right groups for both weekends, and I'm super-excited about what's in store!
My store classes start up again in November...
Whim So Doodle, St. Petersburg, FL, (727) 827-4911: Friday and Saturday, November 1 and 2. Class sign ups haven't begun yet - I'm still designing the three new classes! There will be a Christmas book and a sweet book called Celebrate Today and I'm working on a planner/organizer/year in review notebook.
Here are a couple peeks at the first two projects so far...
As I was working on the class the other day, Mr. Kitty stuck close by, occupying the lid of the container that I was keeping everything in. Watching me work is so hard - it can make one really sleepy!
You can see a glimpse of the products we'll be using in our Little Golden Book album in the kitty pictures!
Just wait until you see how cool (and cute!) this second class is! We are making this album from scratch - cover and all - I mean the album itself! You're going to love it, I think! I love taking something and using it for something completely different from what it was intended for!
Memories Live On, Cupertino, CA, 408-446-9901: Friday and Saturday, December 6 and 7. I'll be teaching the My Great Adventure album, the Christmas book, and one other class.
Paper Tales, San Diego, CA, (619) 222-2510: Friday and Saturday, January 17 and 18. I'll be teaching the Christmas book, the new album pictured above, and the new planner/organizer notebook.
Watch for a couple other dates for these classes to be posted for late fall - still finalizing those details!
It's also not too late to sign up for my annual NYC trip! There is still room for five ladies - you can read more about it HERE. For many ladies it has become a tradition and will be joining me for the fourth year!
AND you can still sign up and have lots of time to make payments for my Paris shopping trip at the end of April next year. Just three two spots left out of the two weeks I'm offering. It's going to be FUN!!! You can read more about that HERE!
Whew! My head is spinning - God is so good - I hope you can join me somewhere along the way!
