No my friends...

...I haven't disappeared or given up blogging. I've been quite busy. Although you cannot tell by looking at my Events Calendar or by my postings, I've been stamping away and life has been keeping me very busy. Yesterday I did a fun event for a friend, Laura. I showed some basics of stamping and we did a couple of cards. We even used the Big Shot! This is a group of women who plan to meet monthly now through their church and will be making cards to send to our troops. Now how awesome is that!!!!

What stamp set did I introduce to the first time stampers in this group, did you ask? Well, that would be, Lovely As A Tree!!!! I also showed them how to color with the pastels. I demonstrated how to emboss. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!! That brings to mind how a couple of posts back. Ummmm......... okay probably quite a few posts back that I mentioned I'm going to demo on my blog how to emboss. Okay. It will be up and hopefully running REAL soon. Just keep in mind, I am technically challenged.

This is a sneak peek at one card...

... we will be doing tonight at Stacey's workshop. :) Many of you know that fall is my favorite time of year. Can you tell? hehehe... I cannot wait for the workshop! I'm bringing lots of new samples and ideas with me that I brought back from Convention and have made recently that I share with everyone at workshops, stamp camps, and clubs.

The picture does not do the card justice because the leaf with the leaves on it actually has the new shimmer paint on it from mini and ooooooooooooohhhhhhh is it pretty!!!!! The stamped image, Give Thanks, is from a Level 1 hostess set that is easily attainable when you hold a workshop that reaches $150 in merchandise sales! Contact me if you're interested in more details. I will hold your workshop at my home for you if it is more convenient for you!

World Card-Making Event

Find joy in the giving and receiving of handmade cards
Ilion, New York--It happens every day. You walk to the mailbox, pull out the mail and shuffle through a stack of ever-present bills and junk mail. But every once in a while, hiding among the dull and dreary envelopes, you find something that makes your heart beat a little faster and brings a smile to your face-- someone has taken the time to send you a card. What a wonderful feeling!
In celebration of World Card Making Day on October 3, Stampin' Up! demonstrators world-wide will hold stamping events all month long to create hand crafted cards and kick off the holday card-making season. World Card Making Day is a celebration in the creativity of handmade cards and the personal connection that they create when given to others. It occurs the first Saturday in October each year, and card-making enthusiasts of all skill levels and styles are encouraged to come together and share their creative passion for the art of card making.
Now in its fourth year, WCMD, founded by Paper Crafts magazine, is an effort to "unite and celebrate the connection and creativity that is the heart of card making," according to the WCMD Web site. "Creating a handcrafted card brings a special kind of joy. There's joy in the process of creating, as well as in giving and receiving handmade cards."
Never made a card? As a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I would be happy to get your started in this immensely fulfilling hobby. Please join me on Saturday, October 3, 2009, at 10:00 a.m. or 2:00 p.m. at my house to make five cards for $10.00. Bring your own adhesive! RSVP is necessary no later than Monday, September 28,2009 and please state which time slot you plan to attend. Refreshments will be served. Call or e-mail me!
Join with thousands of others this year to give someone a joyful surprise when they go to the mailbox!
Thanks for stopping by,

Fall Wreath

At Club this week, we did some wreaths. This is the one I did. It is similar to the one found on page 92 of 2009-2010 idea book and catalog. It was so much fun. Some members did the fall wreath and some did a Christmas wreath which was done a different way. I'll be finishing my Christmas wreath this morning and posting it a little later on. Also, stay tuned because I have some stamp camps to be happenin' soon!

Thanks for stoppin' by,
