Some exciting news!

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to pop in to share some exciting news. My dear friend, Latrice, has asked me to be part of her online class series...

Handmade Holidays is a class that is all about Doing it Yourself. You will learn how to create projects with varied difficulty from cards to a monogram wreath. We will focus on both Fall and Christmas holiday for our DIY projects. Lots of the items you will have on hand and a few you can find either online or at your local craft store. No worries though the class blog will be available to you for one year.

This class is taught by Latrice Murphy along with some great guest designers.

Flickr: We will have a flickr group set up in order to share our projects and to ask any questions during the class.

Supplies needed: Because there are 10 projects in this class the supply list is big, but most of the items you will have in your crafting stash or you can improvise. A quick trip to your local craft store and you’ll be set. You can also get most of the item online at eclectic Paperie. A full supply list will be given to all registered students on October 17th (One week before class starts)

Latrice has also generously offered me to giveaway TWO spots in the classes. All you need to do is leave a comment on this blog post by Sunday October 16th at midnight EST for a chance to win a free spot.

I've been busy working on my card for the class and am quite excited to be part of this. It's going to be so much fun and I hope that you will join Latrice, myself and the rest of the guest designers.

Before I go I thought I'd share a picture and a card I made while at a scrap retreat just over a week ago. The room was full of talent with the likes of Jennifer McGuire, Jana Millen, Kathy Racoosin, Britta Swiderski, Deborah Nolan, Stephanie Klauck and many, many more fabulous ladies. We had so much fun, so much ice cream (and much to my surprise I got so much done)!

Here's one of the cards I made (for my husband's uncle). If you could keep him and his family in prayer I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.
