Happy New Year's Eve

I cannot believe it is the last day of 2005!! I am setting some personal scrapbooking resolutions or at least goals for the New Year! The key word here is PERSONAL! I want to work on my own scrapbook pages and finish many dozens of unfinished projects. I think I'll probably sit down tomorrow and make a list of these projects and attach them to my bulletin board and draw a line through each completed project VERY SATISFYING!

Anyhow, the big news today is the Trash to Treasure sale at FKS!! Although a lot of the big stuff has been sold, we still have an awesome amount of paper and other cool stuff priced ridiculously low TEN FOR A DOLLAR! This isn't old crappy stuff! I had ladies yesterday buying hundreds of sheets of paper! Don't miss out!

NEW YEAR'S HUGS everyone, see you in 2006!!

Wow! Another celeb sighting!!

So I just got back from the big "M". I had a coupon and I like to pick up magazines that I can't buy at FKS. I grabbed a "Somerset Studio" . It's a beautiful issue as always and there on page 102 is a absolutely stunning fabric and paper collage.
Nancy Connelly is the artist and on page 108 she has a second project. It is very cool! Congratulations Nan! Your work is so wonderful!

"That's CLEVER"

You all know Missy . . . She and I go way back . . . In fact she is the one that got me into all this! She was subtle about it that's true, but the more stamping and paper supplies I accumulated the closer I came to realizing there was more to all this stuff than just card making. Anyway, I knew her "then" . . .

Don't miss her TV debut on "That's CLEVER" (formerly Crafter's Coast to Coast). I am so excited! It will air twice on HGTV, DEC 15th, 11AM and 4PM. She's my first TV celebrity friend! CONGRATULATIONS MISSY!

Christmas Treasure Box

This is the top of the altered cigar box. We will also decorate the inside!

JOY altered box project . .

The reasons for it all . . .

I met SJ when I attended CKU-T, she is one of my Scrapbooking Heros, she asked us to remember our reasons for scrapbooking and it really hit home with me. These days it seems scrapbooking is almost a competition with all the new products and everyone itching to be published!

Anyhow, here is a link to Stacey Julian's website, it looks very cool.


So far so good . . .

First things first this morning! The last two days at FKS have been very exciting! We decided to do some major rearranging and it looks awesome! We have try to eliminate a lot of small fixtures in order to make the store a little easier to navigate!
We are also getting ready for a MAJOR after Turkey sale. Shocking prices on a lot of stuff we just need to move.

Okay now the reason for me and blogging (what does that even mean? LOL) . . .
My next class is Sunday, Nov 27th at 12:30. We are making an altered mini muffin tin!! OMG, it is such a cute idea for a gift! I am sorry to say I forgot to take a photo but we will take a mini muffin tin, use paints and stamping and cute 3D embellishments to make an orginal gift item. Stop in the store to see it in person!!

Also Nov 29th at 6:30 my mini Wooden File folder class! This is a very full class but I still have enough supplies for a few folks to join in!!
