Just checkin in...

Hello Friends, I have been a busy little bee lately but have nothing to show for it. Do you ever have days like that? Busy Busy Busy but not a thing to show for it? I hate when that happens.
I have been working on a craft fair that my good friend Polly is putting on, I have created about 100 Christmas cards for it and guess what? I have been taking a 7 week CERT(California Emergency Response Team) course with my son, Brandon and our final class/drill is the same day as Polly's craft fair so, I have to come up with an emergency plan of my own for that day. I may have my mom sit at my table and sell my goodies while Brandon and I are doing our drill.  I better get my rear in gear. ya know, I am a last minute Lucy though. It seems to work for me, LOL!

Today I took a class at Art Inspired Studios in Brentwood and let me say, OMG, what an awesome class. It was taught by Suzy West and we completed a Christmas album out of a hard bound book. So totally cool!
First off, I have taken classes before with Suzy at CHA and she is so sweet and so creative I just love taking classes given by her.
  This  book we  made into a shadow box(center photo) But I have to say, My most fave part of the whole thing is the cover. I love love love how the cover looks. This book was so much fun to create but you could definitely get lost in the hours of creating each page. There is so much you can do. This was a 4 hour class  and we used every last minute adding details to this fun and creative project. We did some embossing with "WOW" embossing powders on/in the book. We also learned some cool new techniques and how to use them in our books. I still have some more pages that I want to do in the book. Maybe try some different techniques. After all, I have about 300 pages that I can do something with!
Well, I am off to work on maybe some more Christmas cards. I will let you all know how it goes and if you are in the Concord, Calif. area then stop on by

Halloween Stamp Camp

Happy October my friends, My , My , My, this whole year is just flying by. Before we know it, it will be Jan 2013. I want it to slow down just a bit. 
Tonight was Gina's monthly stamp camp and we created some Halloween goodies. The 2 Frankenstein boxes have a mini Hershey's bar in them, Aren't they just adorable? 
The other Halloween goodie is magic pull up goodie box. I think both are just the cutest. For the pull up one we used the Stampin Up! stamp set Googly Ghouls. I love love love that stamp set and I cant wait to create some spooktacular goodies for my co workers. 
I am going to make this a quick post as I have a craft fair to get ready for in a couple of weeks and I am working on packages of Christmas cards that I will be selling. I will share all that I make when they are complete. 
Have a great weekend Peeps and I will see you all soon!!
