Ok.....obviously my blog doesn't want pictures on it! I've tried just uploading them from my picture file and i've tried to use picasa2 (which is what blogger suggested) and it shows up but next time it's just an X.

I will try and get it fixed :(

My 1st Workshop

I did my very first workshop here about a week ago. I had a blast once I got over my This is what we did, I got this idea from off of SCS. I can't remember the name right now.

This is one of the projects I tried to write the instructions down since I had (have) no printer at the time and tried to do. I missed it up and this is what I came up with. :)

Teacher Thank You!

I gave this as a thank you to my son's first grade teacher. I hadn't realized how much she had helped my son until they're awards ceremony. Not only did my son get 3 medals (completing all math facts- which he made A's on all year, meeting all AR goals- he read at least 75 books throughout the year, and roadrunner-he completed his running in athletics) BUT just about EVERY kid in her class did it also.

Beate's Challenge (I think it was #2)

Let's try this

Beate's Challenge Card

Today I got all my workshop paper cut, but before I quit I felt I really needed to finish something so I did Beate's Challenge. In the morning I'm going to have to fix my sample for the workshop Tuesday.

I'm not sure how I like this card, but I guess it came out ok :)

Retiring Stamps

I've finally went through all my SU stamps and got all the retiring sets together. I now have around 33 sets that I can't use as a demo after July.

The only ones I'm sad to see go really are Roses in Winter and Bold Butterflies.

New Blog!

Hey! I've started a new blog and hopefully I'll be able to type on it regularly. :)

I'm going to try and start demoing projects every month. Next month I hope to do a class/workshop for scrapbooking. I plan to do a scrapbox (found on Splitcoast), a card with a picture, and faux metal scrapbook medallion.

I'm hoping to do a Christmas Stamp-a-Stack in July.
