Big news…

I posted this on my facebook page and sent an email to many of you but somehow forgot to mention it on my blog:

BIG NEWS!!!! I am so excited to tell you that I am now a Unity Stamp Company Endorsed Teacher and I'll be teaching at Scrapology in Lakeway on Saturday, August 13th at 10am. Spaces are limited so call 512.609.8188 and reserve your spot now! Hope to see you there!

And to celebrate, here's a Unity card we did at a class I taught in June. That class was a silent auction item that I donated to my son's elementary school. So much fun to get crafty with some of my PTA friends!

Get Organized – Think Simple, Think A Muse!
Thursday, August 12th, 2010  7-9pm
Memory Depot, Austin, TX 512-326-8045

When shopping, do you ever stand in front of your favorite inks or A Muse stamps,
scratching your head, thinking “do I have this one?” Well, you are
definitely NOT alone. I was in the same boat until I made myself a
super cute organizer that I would like to share with you! In this class, I will
provide a
binder which we
will decorate (perfect for growing along with your “collection”),
dividers, charts (for a multitude of different supplies and some blank
ones to customize your own), and 10 page protectors to get you started.
I have found that if my supplies are organized, I am more likely to use
them, so lets start getting the most out of our crafty investments with
this class! This class does have a supply fee of $10 in addition to the class fee to cover the binder and other supplies cost.
Please bring paper scissors and adhesive.

*Please
sign up early for this class as the supplies must be ordered in advance
and I want to make sure you'll have one reserved for you!
