Long Nights Happy Results

After a VERY VERY long night of balancing sick kid, sick husband, my oldest sons school project (George Washington puppet which looks awesome), and my prep work for my Valentines banner class that I taught today everything went smashing :)

here are some of the fun pieces that we used in class that I prepped last night
painted wood pieces
 Baggies full of lots and lots of goodies
 Micro beading the first coat of the love script. So fun and bouncy :)
AND... traced out chipboard heart templates to use as the base in the banner.
And for some reason I do not have a picture of the finished banner but here is pretty much what it looks like

So, even after falling asleep on the couch at almost 2 in the morning and being woken up numerous times for various reasons, and leaving an hour too early to go and teach the class...ooops at least I only got as far as the stop sign down the end of my street...the class was a HIT!!!!!! The ladies were so amazing and so kind and it was full of laughs. I even got the privilege of having my friend Nicole from  Sweet Stamp Shop come. I can't wait to see the finishing touches she put on her banner once she got home.

So Much To Learn

There is way way way to much to learn....and it does seem very intimidating looking at everyones beautiful blogs.  But i shall go forth and continue. I just spent the last, well, 2 hours looking at blogs and finding people to follow and had a nice chunk of blogs I wanted to add, and I thought I hit the follow button but I must have hit the CANCEL!!!!! Seriously????? Well, try again tomorrow....maybe even post some fun little craft projects that I have been working on while I am at it.

So........please be patient while I learn to navigate this blogging business and hopefully it won't be long either :)

A New Adventure

I DID IT!!!!!! I have finally started a blog. I did a lot of talk initially,  but it is FINALLY done. I am very excited to share my world with everyone.
And...why just start one blog when you can start TWO, I know it sounds crazy, maybe a little over ambitious, but I am just jumping in. (I can't wait to share my other blog...more on that on another day!!!)  No testing the waters here, just a straight up jump :)

Well for now that is all.
