It's beginning to look alot like...

OK, I know it's only Halloween, but I was updating some of my huge amounts of inventory into my website and came across this 9" x 9" baby blue album. I keep thinking that it is for a baby, but look now!!! It is a Winter Holiday Album. I only have the cover finished(actually waiting for two glittered snowflakes to dry), but I will be ading pages. Who knows...maybe it will go on eBay or etsy. I am sooo in the mood to create holiday stuff!!! Gotta love that Heidi Swapp snowflake mask. A mask adds so much to a page or album cover! Love it! I'll change out the pix when I get those glittered snowflakes on. :D

Registration begins today!!!

That's right. My Creative Classroom is now open for registration for the fall classes. There are tons of amazing teachers and classes being offered now.
Run, don't walk, to your nearest mouse and click on this link to see the MCC website and to register for a class...or two!
This is a sneak peek of the class I will be teaching this fall. It's an 8" x 8" spiral bound calendar. During the course of this three-week class we will be creating a scrapbook page for each month. Now, if you've never scrapbooked, don't worry...this class is for you. If you can trim paper and apply adhesive, you are all set. You can purchase the Class Kit with the calendar and all the papers and embellishments exactly like the one I will be presenting. For those of you who would like a bit more of a challenge, purchase the Calendar Kit and use your own supply of goodies to create it with your style. I will give you extra tips and ideas on how to embellish it even more. Either way, I will be with you every step of the journey. Check out my virtual classroom and get more
We will have at least one virtual field trip, a student message board and class gallery. You can chat with others in the class, ask questions, and upload your creations. Sounds like fun, right?
Go register and I will "see" you in class!!!

Look at my "baby"!!!

He's such a cutie! My 13-1/2 year old is on the varsity volleyball team at his middle school and has a really mean serve! He is also in ROTC and loves it. He looks great in his uniform, if I do say so myself.
OK, I am off to create something! I have tons of new magazines and have boatloads of ideas that HAVE to get out!!!

Got another class idea!

I am in the process of making another project for a class this Spring for My Creative know, the new online crafting site?? My project is using chipboard "on the wall" sort of thing. Can't spill the beans too much, but the picture shows a little bit of a teaser. Yes, it looks girly, but there will be a few class choices, so you don't HAVE to do the girl project...(zipping my mouth shut, now!!)
Sign up for the free newsletter at and get a free week of online classes. Classes "officially" start in January, but there will be a few classes offered before Christmas. You can get a jump on the holiday season and gift giving!! Sign up for the newsletter and keep an eye open for some amazing classes coming your way!!
My class in November will be one you can use all year long...hmmm what could it be? You'll have to check out the website to see the details. (wink,wink!)

Homecoming update

What a cute couple, huh? This is my handsome firstborn and his cutie pie girlfriend all ready for Homecoming, which was last night. The parents got to take tons of pictures before the night began and they turned out super! Gotta make a cute Homecoming scrapbook for them.

I've been tagged

I have been tagged by Pam : and here's the rules when I tag out, here I come!!!
1) You link to your 'tagger' & post the rules:
2) Share 7 facts about yourself - random/weird (now that should be easy!!!)
3)Tag 7 people & link to them
4) Leave comments on their blogs, so they know they've been tagged.

7 facts about me:

1) I want to learn how to play the violin...I LOVE its sound!

2)I love to smell my kids' necks. (I have three teen boys!!) Now, even I think that's weird....but I love their smell, except when they have recently been working out...they each have their own smell and it makes me want to snuggle them...they aren't babies anymore, I know...and they won't let me snuggle them!!! "MOM, get out of here!!!", is all I hear.

3)I hate being scared...hate scary movies!! Fear is one emotion that I cannot stand.

4) I really want to beat someone up...OK, let me explain...I have a 3rd Degree Black Belt in TaeKwonDo and I really want to see if I can put these last eight years of training to the test. If I am ever in the situation I will probably cry and run like a girl, but I hope that I will remember my skills and kick bootie! (insert really cool karate emoticon here)

5) I could eat chicken salad sandwiches every day. I love it!

6) I usually only drink water...that's it. OK, that and my soy fruit shake in the morning.

7)I love CSI...I will watch re-runs over and over again. And don't try to talk to me on a Thursday night at 9pm. But I ONLY like's gotta be Grissom or nothing!!

Well, that's me in a nutshell... :D

I am tagging Lori, Cindi, Julie, Beth, Nikki, NormaAnn, and Julie B.

Check out my Slide Show!


I subscribe to just about every scrapbooking and artsy magazine known to man...OK, not really, but I bet I subscribe to more than you do!!! ;-) Anyway, I have this stash of stuff I really like. So, I tear it out(NOT out of an idea book or a special edition!!) and I have all these different piles. I decided to (finally) put it all in the binder I started about a year ago(!) and organize it. What a concept! I feel like I am spinning my wheels today anyway, so organizing it is!!

Oh, I am sooo not techie. I went to a site to create and upload a slideshow of many of my compupter lagged so much I had to restart and lost what had taken me about 2 hours to do(no lie). When I get it all figured out, I will hopefully have a really cool slideshow to post of my work.
