The snow is falling!

& I have the day off! How lucky is that? It's so pretty to look at as long as you don't have to drive!

I wanted to share a new class for January, it's not at the store, because I brought it back home by mistake, but here are a couple of photos.

Wednesday, January 27 10:30-1:00


We will be making this 6x12 book using Graphic 45's Domestic Goddess. This book will be perfect for those current or "retro" photos, recipes or other around the home "memories".

Bring your basics PLUS: Claudine Helmuth's Matte Medium & foam brush, pop dots, "Stream" Paint Dabber, Vintage Photo Distress Ink, Cropidile, sanding tools

Thanks to everyone that has supported me in the past year! I appreciate my customers so much & look forward to what the new year will bring! See you soon!

Another project from Holiday Hideaway . . .

Holiday Hideaway Canvas, originally uploaded by suezlou2003.

I gotta say, this is my favorite! Tim gave us a blank canvas & told us what to do but didn't give us a sample. He wanted us all to create without the pressure of duplicating his project.

It took us a few minutes to get used to the idea but soon we all embarked on our own little creative adventure! This was so fun!

This is an 11x14 canvas with several smaller canvases added for dimension. We first sketched out a patchwork design of squares & rectangles. Next we added papers & paint then coated the canvas with beeswax. We finished our creations with glitter, stickles & embellishments!

I have been bringing you a 2 page Heritage Layout each month since 2003. In this class you will learn techniques, use new products while creating a layout for your Heritage Scrapbook. Don't have old photos? Most of these pages can be used in your everyday layouts too!

Bring you own scissors, adhesive & distress ink of your choice. Black photo corners not included but are available to purchase.

Holiday Hideaway Sharing

This is 1 of my favorite projects from Holiday Hideaway! We were given a 6x6 shadowbox & the Santos Hands & the Heart. Everything else we chose ourselves to create a project that had personal meaning.

My numbers represent my wedding date 4/16/78. The letter tiles represent my boys A-Z. The 3 stars represents my family, Tom, Adam & Zack. The Dictionary definition is Peacemaker & Peace. I have always been the "Peacemaker" @ home & everywhere else! I've been accused by my son as always looking on the bright side of everything!

There are other things in this little treasure that are hard to see in the photo but you get the idea! This is my favorite project from Day 1!
More tomorrow . . . stayed tuned~

We are back! We are back & sitting here wondering . . . was it a dream? We had the most amazing time! We are so inspired, we have so much to share! I don't know where to begin but you can be sure there will be sharing!

We came back with so many goodies they had to be shipped! I won't even get to see them until Friday when the brown truck gets here!

For now enjoy this photo of our first shopping trip in Prescott! Notice the fun felt flower we are all wearing! Our traveling companion Wendy Vecchi made these for all 6 of us!

More later, gotta go tinker with some of my new projects!
