Travel - Suitcase Shaped Mini Album Class

Travel Book - Suitcase Shaped Book Class
On Saturday, July 24th, I held my travel book class at Scrapbook Village in KY.  We had a great group and so much fun.  The ladies really enjoyed making their vacation treasure and will finish each page on their own.  Hopefully at the time of retreat in November I will be able to see their finished product.
We took our time making the cover and the ladies did so well.  It is so satisfying to watch them and lead them through the process of creating and building their book for those precious memories.  Everyone has their own special and unique take on a page, book or other project they are making.  It is fun to see how they take and add their own personality and sense of design.
We had so much fun together, lots of laughs and lots of talk. 

Below I am going to be offering a class on "Christmas Cookies".  We will be making a jar book with our favorite recipes and using the Cookbookin' line of papers.  I must say right out, that Cookbookin' is my favorite line and I am always looking for ways to showcase the line.  Love it!!!

Thanks for checking in today and remember to try something new today.  
Happy Scrappin',

June - Yard Sale 2010

Remember 2 weeks ago I mentioned that I was in the process of getting ready for our annual yard sale.  Well here are a few photos of us getting ready.  Let me tell you, it was sooooooo hot!  98 to 100  degrees every day.  The weather was so oppressively hot and the humidity was just as bad.  But anyways, we got through it.  We are going to try to have our last one at the end of September.  I am sure the weather will be much better and more buyer friendly.

My 3 grandgirls folded all the clothes and arranged them for us.  

Dennis helped carry "stuff" for us and get it all arranged.  Thanks!

Ben, my hunky grandson and muscles helped get all you see arranged nicely and he worked until he got so tired he sat and helped.  Wow, the stuff he carried and threw out for us.

Part of the Barbie collection Kathi and I bought to sell on ebay.  We have sold many, many dolls and we have all this to go.  See the boxes on the left, there is more in there.

Thanks for checking in.  Just thought I would share with you what I have been doing.  We worked for 2 1/2 weeks straight to get ready for the sale.  Not many people came.  Next time it will be better.
