Some Eye Candy!

Feeling like Spring could arrive any minute here! There have been some April Showers this week (and hundreds of slimy little worms on the driveway)...Good for the Garden! Ah, my garden...if I could only plant some clay flowers for instant colour! LOL

ScrapFest was this past weekend - what a great experience! Great to see so many happy scrappers at this event with lots of bags (full of the newest patterned papers, cardstock and embellishments) coming from the Marketplace. I had a great group of very creative ladies attend my card making class! Thanks for the giggles - at one point it was 'snowing' little bits of boa feathers!

I am busy working on Mother's Day clay flowers (hair flowers, arrangements and other goodies) as well as hand-designed greeting cards. Will post some more photos soon - seems the uploading is taking a long time from my camera to computer. :)

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter and Happy Spring to All!
I hope the bunny found its way to your house today! We all had plenty of egg hunting, paper crafting with the kids, good food with the family this weekend...and maybe a few back to chicken, fish and veggies this week! LOL - How many weeks to swimsuit season??!!!

Looking forward to ScrapFest and finish kitting my class this week - lots of goodies in store! Can't wait to meet the enthusiastic students and create some cool papercrafting embellishments with clay!If you haven't registered...

Beautiful NEW embellishments! Are you looking for something fun and exciting to add to your layouts, cards and other crafting projects?
Then you will not want to miss out on the opportunity to take Tracey Paul's class, "Cool Embellishments with Clay." Yes, CLAY. But this isn't the kind of clay you are thinking of. This Deco Clay is so nice to play with and it feels like marshmallows but it isn't sticky! I had the opportunity to play with it a couple of weekends ago and I didn't even want to wash my hands afterwards - not messy at all! Come see what I mean.

Let's get this party started right NOW with another contest!!
