Preserving the Past...

Our 1st class at our new location at the adorable CHECKERED COTTAGE in Kirkwood, MO last night was a great success.  We had a full class with friends old & new.  Thank you to all that attended!  I can't wait to do it again!

Our next class will be in January.

Thanks to everyone that attending my class last night!  Our last Preserving the Past at For Keeps Sake was a little bittersweet but I know everyone will enjoy our new location at the   Checkered Cottage in Kirkwood, MO.   I dropped off  my sample today and Robyn was excited to report that several students had already signed up so we are on our way!   Again, thanks so much to each and every one of you!

A NEW Class at a NEW Place!

It's OFFICIAL!  My NOVEMBER Class is listed on the CHECKERED COTTAGE website.  You will see my class listed and will have the ability to sign up online (although I believe payment needs to be made in the store).   

I am excited for you to visit the CHECKERED COTTAGE and see everything that they have to offer.  Here are the details for my NOVEMBER class.

Preserving the Past for November
Wednesday, November 12 @ 6pm

Each month Preserving the Past we will create a 2 page layout perfect for your Heritage Album. This month's class features beautiful papers from Carta Bella "Moments and Memories" collection. This layout is great for old photos but can easily be used for current photos too. Come join our great group of ladies at our new location. 

In addition to your basic supplies you will need Black Ink for distressing (I used Tim Holtz Black Soot) and foam squares or pop dots.

Cost:  $20 per student
This class limited to 15 students.

A Walk Down MEMORY LANE...and a New Road to Explore!

It seems like yesterday that we first stepped into the gigantic store on Lemay Ferry!  We thought we couldn't fill it up but Timi and Nancy N did fill up For Keeps Sake with all the latest and greatest supplies for our beloved hobby. 

 I have always been proud to work at this place which became a "Happy Place" for so many people that shared the same passion for creating.

Change is good though and just as I realized that I would no longer be able to teach my Preserving the Past class, a new opportunity has come my way!  

I'm am so excited to share that I have been invited to continue my class at The CHECKERED COTTAGE in adorable downtown Kirkwood, MO.     Details are being worked out but we will have a place for my class starting in November.  Stay tuned!



In the meantime, 

Thanks for the Memories
