We Still Have Room for You!

Isn't she cute?! Not only is she cute, everytime I look at this picture those cookies make me hungry!

This is one of the images from our Home for the Holidays workshop over at Creative Workshops that started yesterday (Mon. Oct 27). Already the participants are having fun and being excited about their project as they create a personal keepsake memory book for the holidays, with mixed media artist Sherry Smyth as their guide and teacher. Sherry, who a lot of you know through our wonderful artist interviews on Mind Wide Open, is over there, already evoking a mood of the senses, and getting people in the mood for the upcoming holidays. And she is going to do this 3 times a week for the next 4 weeks!

There is still room left in the workshop and still some of the great kits left. You don't even have to worry about missing anything if you come to the "party" a tad late, or even very late. The way the workshops are set up, all the information is available for saving to your computer and will continue to be available for a period of time even after the workshop is officially finished. Once you join the workshop you can begin to save all the information, while part of the kit is shipped to you and part is digitally emailed to you. So time is not an issue as far as when you begin the workshop. Everything has been set up so that it is convenient for you and your schedule!

So come on over! Get inspired and get a taste of the holidays to come before they actually get here, and the crazy whirlwind begins!

And wait til you see what workshops we have to offer starting in January! :-)

Creatively Yours

My only art these days & TGIF

I know that for the past couple months I have been kind of missing in action as far as participation in some of my groups. It certainly hasn't been from lack of wanting to participate, oh my goodness no. I love the few groups I belong to. And I say few because I truly don't belong to a lot due to time constraints. But things just kind of got busier than normal for a while.

This is the closest I've come to making art for a while. But those of you who know me know I'm addicted to my digital creations so I enjoy doing this and I especially enjoy meeting the wonderful women behind these banners and creating (hopefully) some beauty to match their dreams.

I may not be able to play along with the Challenges over at Mind Wide Open so here is where I find my creativity sometimes has had to get out of it's box and stretch it's wings. And that's a good thing. A very good thing. :-)

So have a look and enjoy.

New Collage Sheets & Papers

I just listed a number of new collage sheets and decorative papers in the store. Here is a preview of some of them. You can see them all by clicking here. I hope you like them. And no, your eyes don't deceive you, I've started work on Christmas themes. You know Christmas projects are already underway with a lot of you! ;-) I just want to help! LOL

I Did It Again


Forgot to post the TGIF image. Again. On Friday. But I at least remembered today and not a couple days from now. :-)

We woke to signs of winter winging it's way to us here in the mountains. A cold day, sharp wind. Our nighttime temps are supposed to drop down into the upper 30's, and stay awhile, starting tonight. But tomorrow and through the next few days our daytime temps are supposed to get back up in the 60's. But for today we're at about 48 degrees and also overcast. Brrrr. We just bought a new electric blanket a couple weeks ago. I think today it needs to find it's way to the bed. I don't know about you but the only time I like to crawl into a cold bed is in the dead of summer. ;-)

I'm supposed to be working on a couple pages for our Charity book over at Etsy Cottage Style so I better scoot back into the studio and figure out what I 'm doing as the deadline for mailing is fast approaching.

But I wanted to get the TGIF free image up while I was thinking about it. These days I pretty much have to act on my thoughts when I have them or else they disappear again and I never know when they'll resurface. LOL



Enjoy and I hope everyone has a marvelous weekend!!!
