I am so excited to share this news with you! I am scheduled to teach two classes at the Paint In Alberta Creative Arts Convention being held at the Deerfoot Inn & Casino  in Calgary, September 13 to 16, 2012. I know its a bit early but I thought I would get you thinking about it.
This event has an exhibition attached to it as well, therefore there are also day rates which allow access into see the exhibits, demonstrations, make and takes & cash and carry classes. You must register for the event in order to register for classes that are listed in the catalogue. There is a one day or a two day registration which allows unlimited access to the exhibit hall.There are some wonderful classes and some truly amazing talent!
Here is the link to my Friday class -- Joy Greeting Card or Wall Decor #228, scroll to bottom of page(please note cardstock letters will be used in this project rather than metal letters)
and my Saturday class -- Take Time Mixed Media Decor #339, scroll to middle of page
I have linked two other helpful pages as well:

Gratitude Card

I must apologize, I just realized that a recent post, (which has now been deleted) was a card I already shared with you. So to make up for it here is a card created with heat embossing, vellum and tombow markers.  the floral stamp is from Hero Arts and the lovely layers of course are created with Spellbinders TM dies. It was part of the trio for my April 30 issue of the CardMaker online newsletter. Just a quick post today -- life is spinning fast.
Creatively yours,

Mother's Day Gift Inspiration!

Project Design based on project seen in Exquisite Embellishments for Paper Crafting published by Annies'Attic
Okay, I promise this is the last post for a bit about this new publication (Exquisite Embellishments for Paper Crafting), I so much wanted to share a project that did not get into the book, however the other three pieces of this ensemble did. You have seen the wood tote box (which is included in the book) however this journal is not included in the book. That takes me to the topic of using one design to inspire you to create other things. Somewhat like one card five ways, taking the same set of supplies and creating other things. Sometimes our creative well needs replenshing and this is one way to accomplish it. This little journal would make a perfect Mother's Day gift and card at the same time. Open it up and write your thoughts and wishes to your mom on the first page. Or, take inspiration from the design to make a square card. Most of the techniques needed to complete this journal are in the book. (sorry I am unable to share that info) For further info on this publication and to see more inspiring photos click on this link to Annie's Attic.
Wishing all the moms and moms-to-be a wonderful Mother's Day! May it be filled with happiness and sunshine! I know this wish is early, but I too plan on having a wonderful weekend and spending some quality time with my family, I hope you are blessed with the same!
