October News!

Hi everybody!  I know it's been quite a while since you've heard from me. :)  So, I thought I'd give you a brief update.  As most of you know, my summers are crazy with custom embroidery, painting and sewing.  I added a new line of heat transfer vinyl using my Cricut this summer.  Fun!!  After that, I decided to sand my kitchen cupboards and refinish them.  Well, this old girl fell backwards off the ladder and landed on my back.  Thankfully, I was only 3 rungs up so I didn't manage to break anything (as I seem to have a penchant to do) LOL!  But, I've spent the last two weeks sitting on a heating pad.  I'm on the mend and will be tackling the cabinets in a few minutes.  I thought I better send this email out before I manage to try to kill myself again.  LOL!!

After this brief (not really brief) hiatus (my son's favorite word) I am going to get back to the creating!  There will be new kits and new clubs, plus I'll be doing some kits with no longer available kits.  So, if you've missed something, be on the lookout. Below you will find what's happening this month.

If you haven't already seen the new catalogs, hop on over to my website and take a look.  Lots of great new products.  Love all the paper packs!

Boy!  It's been a LONNGGG time since I've posted!  I kind of put my stamping and scrapping on the back burner for awhile.  I've been a consultant with CTMH for almost 12 years now and I think I was burning out.  But, with Convention starting today and a new Idea Book being introduced, I'm excited and ready to jump back in.

The current Annual Inspirations Idea Book has been extended one more month, going through August, so that we can start our new book in August and have plenty of time to get the lovely new products in and play with them.  So, there's a new paper and Workshop on the Go for August.  Hop on over to my Facebook page and check it out.

Horse Head Wreath

After some trial and error, I made my first horse head wreath.  I had seen them on Pinterest (where else? LOL), and I wanted to give them a try.  I found a base online and placed an order.  I used it as a pattern.  I tried first to make a a form from wire, but that was going to take way too long!  I bought a roll of rabbit cage wire, and it was perfect!  

Check it out!

Next to create a horse shoe shaped wreath!
