Signs of spring....

Although we spent the weekend here with wind and rain and multiple shades of gray, Monday has dawned with with a few fresh signs that spring is on it's way. The tree's in the neighborhood are starting to flower and the woods across the road from out backyard have that sheen of green....leaves about to burst!

I am ready for the spring time in my scrap booking as well. Here's a few sneek peaks for the class on Ustream coming up this weekend....

Kit Update - Revised

The new kit and pattern...the pattern is called One Flap, Two Flap and the kit is the Restoration Version,.... are up on the new website.

I have to go into the website and physically release the patterns for those who ordered the kit. I will be doing that several times during the day. You will receive a link and instructions to download the pattern at that time. This is for those who ordered the kit only. If you order only the pattern...it works the same as it always has. Any kit orders that come in prior to 4pm Pacific will go out today via Priority Mail.

I will also have the K and Co. "Botanical" version kit up by tomorrow or Thursday.

Thank you for your patience!

SpringTIME Mini..

Here is the mini that slips in the G45 Fairy Clock. (We've been having a nasty storm for the last few days and my internet went down late yesterday afternoon so I wasn't able to post it). It is made from one of Graphic 45's Envelope mini albums. I had to modify it of course! I added flaps for more "real estate" and added an acrylic cover.

I hope your week is wonderful!

I will have the Heritage Mini, Part 3 instructions available later today.

It's TIME for a glimpse of Spring....

...Once Upon a Springtime, that is! This is the Altered item I'm sending to Graphic 45 for the finals of their Design Team call. It is such an honor to be among the 25 chosen to be in the finals. This Fairy Clock is a real working clock and also holds a mini Album. I gave a peek at this on Ustream last night. I will post the mini that fits in behind the clock tomorrow....

Have an awesome rest of your weekend!

Ustream tonight....

...yep, we are having a class tonight! I will be showing you some fabric yo-yo flowers. We will also be using felt and other fabrics. So, grab your fabric scraps and felt scraps for a fun and easy class tonight.

Doing Ustream shows and my blog has truly shown me that we live in a global community. I feel as if I have close friends who I have never met and live half way around the world. Like many of you, I watched the images coming out of Japan....speechless. Please focus your prayers for all the survivors!

Just to let you know, our friends Barry and Joy both live in Hawaii. Thankfully, the tsunami was not as bad as anticipated and they are both safe and sound. Carol's son, DIL and granddaughter live in Japan and have let Carol know all are safe. All had very long and sleepless nights!

See you all in a few hours!

March Schedule...

I am sitting here wondering just WHERE did February go!! I swear I blinked after CHA and it was March.

I have spent part of the weekend working on the sample of the mini using the Crate Paper "Restoration" line and the rest was for some family time. As I worked on the mini, I decided it really need additional paper. The added paper won't be here until Tuesday, so I am moving the class to the 25th/26th of March. The third part of the Heritage Album will stay on the 18th/19th. In addition to adding paper, I made some fun fabric flowers in keeping with the homespun feel of this paper line. Soooo, this Friday (the 11th), I will show you how to make these cute flowers! I will post a photo and supplies in a day or two. The Restoration kits (still working on the name of the album!) and patterns will go up by Tuesday on my website.

As requested, here is the alternate Heritage Album that we worked on Saturday morning....

Have an awesome week!!

Graphic 45 Submission

As many of you know, Graphic 45 is having a Design Team call. Graphic 45 is one of my favorite paper lines, I think I have made a project out of nearly all of there paper lines at some time! I don't usually apply for design teams but....since I love Graphic 45 paper... I decided to just go for it. They have asked that all submissions be posted on our blogs....here are the projects I am submitting, some are older ones you may remember... some are new.

I wish to thank the great people over at Graphic 45 for their consideration of my work for their team. Wish me luck!!
