Just a quick post to say Happy Birthday to my Sister, my Brother-in-law...and to ME! It is a busy weekend ahead and the month of March is FULL of birthdays around here! A quiet celebration, a few yummy treats and unexpected telephone calls/emails are sure to come our way!

If your birthday is in March - Happy Birthday to You too - enjoy!

Happy Valentine's Day!

RED ROSES made of DecoClay - the colour of the day! The language of LOVE...

Spend a moment with someone you care about today and let them know how much you love them!

Starting the day sprinkled with little Lindt chocolates, egg in the whole (shaped in a heart) with the cut-out heart toast on the side is a fun way to start the day. Hand-crafted or store bought, a greeting card to express you love (humour, serious, hand-written sentiments) also goes along way!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Register for ScrapFest today!

Registration for ScrapFest is now open - WOW! Such a great response to all of the workshops, crops and VIP passes. The ScrapFest team has been working very hard to make this event bigger and better than ever before (and the bar was already set high from past years!).

Here is another sneak peek on the Blossoming Hydrangea Shadow Box - the 'blue' colourway. See with the Claycraft by Deco, you can hand-tint the white clay to any hue or shade that co-ordinates with your photos. Scent-free, lightweight and everlasting -- very eco-chic! The shadowbox protects your photos and your clay flowers - a lovely keepsake that you have made yourself! Also a great gift for a Wedding, Shower or New Baby...and all the other reasons we scrapbook!
Start searching for (or taking) your best photograph (5x7 will work best) and sign up today!

Getting Ready for ScrapFest

OK, loyal blog readers...the countdown is on to the opening of the ScrapFest registration! Sunday Feb 7th (that's tomorrow) at 2pm EST the online registration starts.

This exciting event takes place in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada on the weekend of April 16/17th. Not only have they lined up great workshop classes (if I do say so!) there is a fabulous marketplace of the latest products and crops for all of the scrapbookers! Lots of prizes - tons of fun and learning! If you're not a traditional scrapbooker, that's OK too - there are still lots of interesting things to see and do (taking a class is a sure way to learn something new!).

I am thrilled to be teaching a 'technique-style' workshop - Above is a sneak peek of the "Blossoming Hydrangea Shadowbox" that you can make. I will teach you how to make these pretty little flowers (Mother Nature makes them fussy and delicate) but using Claycraft by Deco, they are tinted to the colour of your choice and everlasting! Start thinking of the fabulous 5X7 photo that you'll want to bring - it will be encased in a white shadowbox, surrounded by blossoms of clay flower hydrangeas and ribbon - a terrific 3-D embellishment to showcase your work!Add Image

Hope to see you there - you can preview the ScrapFest catalogue at to see all of the teachers, classes, times and events - you won't want to miss out!
