Busy cleaning The Studio for the New Year

That’s right. I have gotten real busy cleaning up The Studio so I can get busy with some FUN! I love Christmas and the holidays but, I sure am happy when it’s time to put everything back in the attic. It is so refreshing and it’s not even close to Spring yet.

I decided that I should snap a few pictures while it looks like this because it doesn’t always stay this way for long. LOL!

I’m not a very good photographer so, I apologize for the lighting. They just seem a little off, to me.
Anyway, back behind the white shutters are my sewing machines with many unfinished projects piled around them. On the table with the display, I have the beginning of the cutting process for the first 2012 Card Class. Over in the corner are some cards for sale as well as some paper, chipboard, ribbons and other goodies. In the cabinets are mini albums that I have made over the years, books on crafts that I want to do someday, and lots of fun goodies to use on my scrapbook pages and cards as well of just a bunch of shabby chic eye candy.
This is just one side of the room. The other side has two large round tables too, for classes. It also has a very messy desk and computer area, my grandma daycare and a TV for Farrah’s Bubble Guppie viewing pleasure.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you all have a great weekend. I am going to have lunch with my Mom, my 10yo daughter, her American Girl dolls and Farrah at a Tea Room tomorrow. Then I will watch the same girly girl daughter play some dirty, kick butt softball on Sunday. That’s an awesome weekend! XO

WOW! It’s 2012!

Holy cow! Where does the time go? I can hardly believe that it’s January 2012.

Well, even though you haven’t heard much from me, I have been very busy trying to come up with classes and trying to get some of my half done projects, completely done. Hah! That’s no easy task.

So, I’ve been thinking that I need to do some card classes in honor of the date. What do I mean? Well, how about some 2012 Card Classes!? That’s $20.00 for 12 different cards. What do you think?

I am going to start with a Valentines card class. However, if you don’t need a bunch of Valentine’s Day cards, they can simply be stamped with a different sentiment and used for most occasions. Here is just a small sample of the 12 cards that we will be making. The class is on Saturday, Jan. 28th from 10 till 2*. If you would like to come, you will need to RSVP by Monday, Jan. 23.

The next 2012 Card Class will be Sweet Stitches and uses lots of goodies like rub-ons, ribbon, fabric brads, buttons, and many more! They are awesome! This is just a small sample of the 12 cards we will make. The class is on Saturday, Feb. 25th from 10 till 2*. If you would like to attend, please RSVP by Monday, Feb. 20.

*Please keep in mind that we are making 12 different cards. If you tend to like to take your time or are chatty, it may take you longer.

Also, feel free to bring a snack or beverage as we will be working hard for 4 hours.
