off on an adventure

Thursday, June 23, 2011

I was planning on taking my kids to a family reunion at the end of the month. My grandfather passed away yesterday, so we are leaving early. I won't be back until close to class time again, so if I am quiet, you know why.

Oh, and today I celebrate my 10th wedding anniversary.




Happy everything. You guys stay cool and I'll see you soon!

Fridays with Carrie - June 2011

Monday, June 6, 2011

Mixed Media Art Book- We will construct a mini book using grunge paper, metal, canvas, cardstock, and chipboard. This book will surely become a treasure and can be adapted to just about any theme. You might want to bring your favorite inks, stamps, and embellishments although Carrie will be providing an abundance of materials.

At Stamp Antonio this Friday June 10th from 10:30-12:30. Call them at 210-792-7900 to register.

I really love this book. It's an anniversary present for my hubby. Other themes, or just more of a generic collage book are possible.




Where the heck have you been?

Monday, June 6, 2011

Have you been wondering what keeps me busy? Why I don't update this thing nearly as much as I should. Well...

in general, these two keep me running...


then my other hobby...


And when Scrapbook 911 closed I lost my space to create. My studio has not been in working order in at least 3 years. Factors include selling my family's retail store (and taking TONS of stuff with me), being a sales rep for a year (2-5 boxes a WEEK of product), and then Scrapbook 911 closing (I bought a ton of killer sale stuff and also inherited quite a bit of classroom supplies). The poor studio was more of a storage room then a usable space. I also very much needed a guest bed. We have a regular visitor and desperately needed more space. It has taken every spare moment for the past 4 months, but I DID IT! It's not completely finished, but it IS a workable room. I'm beyond thrilled. I haven't felt this creative in a long time.

This was in March. I had already done a lot of work, getting rid of an IKEA desk set, and moving out loads upon loads of stuff.


Here it is right now.





My desk is a mess from doing class samples. Like I said, I'm not done. At least it's a useable space again.

Oh, and I hosted a party for our 10 year wedding anniversary. I've been planning for a year. It was all very much worth the work but I am looking forward to new projects and getting caught up on class samples and projects plus a few projects JUST FOR ME. Imagine that!
