Lots of Good Things Coming Soon

I am so excited about several upcoming things. My wreath book should be well on it's way. I'm so happy about being an Author of my own book. I also have another book on it's way, but I'll keep it a secret for now. I am excited about seeing the completed books that I contributed to. One is on Iris Folding and I made the scrapbook pages that are in the book. I also made a layout for an Altered Surfaces book. Then I was co-author of a Glass painting and more book. I have the Shadowbox book that I made 3 small and 4 large Shadowboxes for. If anyone is interested in purchasing one, e-mail me at Being published has long been a dream of mine, and I still can't believe it's really happening! I'm so appreciative of Design Originals giving me the opportunity.

Then there's the website that will be opening very soon. It is looking soooo good and I can't wait for it to be unveiled to the world. I have several kits and templates for sale in the shoppe. Be sure to check them out and tell me what you think. Also, if you'd like to see a kit with certain colors or themes, I'd love to hear about it.

I'm also so blessed that my classes at The Scrapbook Pad are taking off. I had full classes last month. I love teaching and seeing the satisfaction when others complete their projects and their excitement about them. In January, my classes are an Envelope Yearbook class that is a $30 class on Sat. Jan 19th from 10AM to 1PM. It is a great bound book that is made from decorated 9 x 12 envelopes so that you can store larger artwork or just stuff to scrapbook later. It has a page for each month and has a lot of paper piecing patterns. I already have 1/3 of the class full, so if you're interested, call the "Pad". You can check out their website for a photo of the project. Then I'm also doing a Valentine Keeper for kids (and adults are welcome too). It's made from 2 paper bags and has a small coin envelope to hold suckers or small items, a place for a photo, and a pocket to keep those precious valentines. It closes with a flap that has velcro on it. The Valentine Keeper class is $20 and is Sunday, Jan 20th from 2-4PM. I'd love to see you there.

And finally - I'm sooo glad that it appears that our family is getting over all the illnesses that have plagued us for the past month. In addition to the previous illnesses, this past week, Zachary got pneumonia, and I got bronchitis! We now all seem to be getting better and hopefully this will be the end of it. I sure hope so.

Lastly - I have to share a funny thing Zachary did yesterday. I was in the bathroom blowdrying my hair and Zach was watching TV in my bedroom. He came into the bathroom and told me he was watching Little Einsteins. I said ok - go back and watch it. He told me again and I told him I was blowdrying my hair. He said "No blowdry hair!" Then it occurred to me that he couldn't hear the show over the blowdryer, so I said, "do you want me to close the door?". He said yes. But, not wanting to have him out of my sight, I left the door cracked. He then proceeded to come back and tell me "No Mom! You close a door like this" and then he pulled the door completely closed. Too funny! I just had to laugh.

Well, I just wrote a book for you to read and thank you for taking the time to do so. I'm just so thankful for all that is happening right now (except the sickness) and am so blessed to have wonderful friends and family to share it all with. I truly appreciate you all!

'Til next time,
