Creative chaos

I'm working away on some samples for an upcoming Christmas card class I'll be teaching soon...can't wait to post the sneak peeks for this one and all the details about the class.

I love working on projects...brainstorming the ideas, techniques and project layout. It's so much fun to find new combinations of supplies just because there's a big jumbled mess on my table. haha

I also love seeing my kids reactions to the projects...they love to watch me put the different items together and give their imput. They also love playing with my leftovers. :)

Off to finish some more cards!

October 17th: Mix It Up Pattern Paper Class Sneak Peek

Just wanted to post a quick sneak peek for my next class that I'll be teaching on Friday, October 17th from 9:30-11am at the Lone Star Retreat Center. This is the first class in my Mix it Up: Pattern Paper series. We will be using papers from one manufacturer to create a double page 12x12 layout along with a card. If you would like to sign up, you can email me from my blog or post a comment and I'll get in touch with you.

All classes must be prepaid a week prior to the class date (although for this class, I will extend the sign up date since it's a holiday weekend). So for this class, the deadline to sign up will be no later than Tuesday, October 14th so I have time to purchase and prep all the class supplies. Again, please contact me so that we can arrange for your payment.

Here's the info for my class:

Mix It Up: Pattern Paper #1
