Teaching a class tomorrow...

I will be teaching a class tomorrow in the group Craft Basics. The group is small and we are looking for more members and I would love to have more folks in the class. Craft Basics is a group for all types of crafters with any experience. If you would like to learn a new craft or are an experienced crafter who would like to meet others, teach, and share. All are welcome! We have monthly swaps, play games for crafty prizes, chit chat, share, and more. All the ladies are super sweet, encouraging, and helpful! The crafts we have discussed have been everything from quilting, card making, scrapbooking, and cooking to gardening, jewelry making, knitting & crocheting. The sky is the limit honestly! The link to the group is:

The class I will be teaching is a simple paperbag mini-scrapbook album. I learned this method from the awesome Kathy Orta through her show Paper Phenomenon on UStream. The books will have a chipboard cover, an awesome binding method and many pockets and area's for photos. I will be teaching the basic ways I put the main book together (using Kathy's techniques), and then later on we can have classes on how to make embellishments and other cool pockets and things for the book!

Also a fellow member, Donna (our resident Knitter) will be teaching classes in the month of May on how to knit in a combined continental method. It will be a great chance for us who would like to learn how to knit to learn in a nice atmosphere with fellow newbie knitters :)

If you are interested in joining in on the fun please check out and join the group at the link above. We would love to see you there! You can also click the button below to join. Thanks so much! Happy Easter everyone! God Bless!!

Alcohol Inked Paper Rose

I have to say that I think I am addicted to making paper roses. Recently I had my very first UStream Live class where I taught how to create this Alcohol Inked Paper Rose. It was odd  for my first class. I'm not used to being live on webcam and I think it was a bit awkward and hard to get used to for my first time. I think that I need to get a better camera or perhaps rearrange where I have my webcam to have a better view of things. My husband created a stand for my webcam and set it up where we thought it would work well, and I guess it did ok for my first video. I just wish I didn't feel so put off by it all. lol. You can view the class HERE....and feel free to laugh. LOL. It is in 2 parts... kept having phone calls and things that interupted me. I've now officially learned to NOT have the phone in the room with me, and to let EVERYONE know that I'm teaching a class prior to going live! LOL.

I am considering creating these flowers and selling them in my shop. They would be an AWESOME addition to scrapbook pages, and other art creations. Would anyone be interested in these? I was thinking a set of 3. I could create a large (that would be the one shown), medium, and small. Of course each flower would be uniquely different but the same in concept. This large rose shown is the size of my palm so it is a good size and the back is flat for easy attachment. If this would interest anyone please let me know! Thanks so very much! I hope to get more creations up soon, we've been going through a rough patch here at home with a lot of personal things going on so I haven't been able to create like I would like. *sighs* I have however been working on a new baby blanket that I will be selling in the shop very soon. It's a little over half finished so far and I work on it every day so I hope to complete it fairly soon.

I had a 50 fan giveaway this week for my shop's page on facebook. Now my goal is to reach 100 fans and of course I will be having a giveaway as soon as the page reaches 100! If you haven't already you can visit by clicking HERE. Anyone is eligible to win and all you have to do is 'like' the page. =) I'll have more details on the giveaway in the coming days so please stay tuned for that!

I hope everyone is enjoying spring FINALLY being here, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
