Happy fall…

Well, it appears the summer disappeared with Hurricane Earl a couple of weeks ago, huh? I actually don’t mind the fall… except that I really don’t look forward to the winter… at all! However, I do enjoy the cool, crisp sunny days of fall. Plus the colorful pumpkins, leaves and scarecrows of fall are beautiful color inspiration for crafters like me! lol… Fall also means that it’s time to start planning for the holidays… it’s never to early to start, you know! This card here is a sample from one of my upcoming holiday card classes. The first one is on Wednesday, Sept. 29. There’s still time to RSVP if you’d like to come … just e-mail me ASAP. It will be held at the Chatham Community Center from 6 to 9 p.m. Each guest makes 10 cards (2 each of 5 designs) for $18… and a head start on the holidays… priceless! 🙂 I’m really excited about this fall. The new holiday mini catalog is fabulous with lots of new product including fabric, which works great with our Big Shot die-cutting machine. Keep an eye on the old blog-o as I will be featuring a fabric project that I

Howdy…

Hi There! Well, it’s the unofficial end of summer… sigh. How do you feel about that? I’m sort of torn… I love summer weather (although fall isn’t bad either) and endless hours at the beach, but the fall always translates into new beginnings for me… almost like the start of a new year. So I’m ready to get a fresh start… on life, on business, on the weather (there’s nothing better than crisp, fresh fall air). That means I’m ready for a fresh start with this blog, too! Boy… I am having difficulty keeping up with it and I only expect it to get busier as we head into the fall and holiday seasons as that’s my busiest time of year! Yipee! The card I’m featuring today was from one of my all occasion card classes earlier this summer. It uses the Level 1 hostess set Punch Potpourri, which coordinates with four of our fabulous punches. If you’d like to make some fun holiday cards shoot me an e-mail to RSVP to one of my THREE upcoming holiday card classes (Sept 29, Oct. 19 and/or Nov. 30). You’ll make 10 cards (two each of 5 designs) for $18. The classes
