Holiday Thinking Inking Week 8 – the last week…

Hello Monday-of-a-holiday-week!

I can’t believe it. It is the last week of my Holiday Thinking Inking Class. :(

It is the 8th week of my free 8-week online class I am teaching over at 2Peas called Holiday Thinking Inking. This week shares a bunch of random stamping ideas, including a scrapbook page…

My drug of choice…

Some people like chocolate.

Some like wine.

Some like shopping.

Me? My drug of choice is teaching.

I love everything about it. It is such such such fun to me.

It is a struggle for me, though, like any addiction I guess. I wish I could travel and teach more, but I also want to be home with the family. So for a long time I didn't go to stores to teach, but recently decided to go to the stores who have been asking for some time and/or the stores with owners who I adore.

This past weekend I went to Canada to teach at Scrapbook Centrale. Natalie has been asking me to come teach for her for 9 years. Yes. 9 years. It is about time I said yes, huh? Thank you, Natalie. You are the best and I can't wait to come back.

(And thanks to my dear old friend, Mel, who took this photo. And who had the most thoughtful present for my family. And who gives the best hugs. Ever. Love you, girl.)

 I had such a wonderful time. Such wonderful help. Such wonderful people. We did 3 giant classes on Saturday and again on Sunday. Could have kept going.

Anyway… I am working on the class weekends for 2011. I am heading to some of the great/patient store owners locations in Buffalo, Ohio and Boston (several times). I am not booking past May right now. Stay posted for class dates. I won't be doing many trips, but just enough to feed my addiction.

Moving on…

Many folks have asked about the new Liquid Pearls. Yes, the are wonderful. Yes, they are a good price. Yes, you need them. :) My favorite colors? Bisque, Silver, Platinum, and White Opal.

Here is a card showing a fun way to use the Liquid Pearls. This uses the fabulous Bisque color. I just traced stamped image, leaving some fun and simple dimension…

Have a great weekend!

Linking madness…

Just got done teaching a class at my local store. Had some newbies in it. Love fresh blood. :)

Just gonna share some fun links tonight…

  • This quite possibly is the best scrapbook page of all time. Perfection.
  • No one can color like Kathy. Wow.
  • LOVE Amy's creations. It is now my favorite present to give for any child or baby. Always a hit. She even has some on sale for a good deal.
  • Clever shirt idea. Fab.
  • This photo is a hoot. So funny.
  • Can't wait.
  • This is a great tip for getting mirrored stamped images.
  • This photo makes me want one.
  • Oh, and a random blurt: Whoever out there is voting for Bristol, please stop. Thanks. ;)
  • I am addicted to these handmade buttons… and she has some in stock!
  • Love quotes from my favorite movie.

Off to get some needed rest. Night!

But before that, I just gotta give ya a heads up about NEW dies that are out – they are must-haves. I can’t wait to use mine. YUM. They are finally available… yay! This one is like my favorite Ornamental die but smaller and fits in the other!
