How time flies! I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas and are preparing for a fun New Year's Eve…oh, and managing to catch your breath too! (Or is that just me?!) Seems like the last while has been a whirlwind of activity – but of the best kind. I spent a lot of the holidays travelling to various family functions which I loved. The extended families from both my parents make a point to get together at Christmas, so it's wonderful to catch up with everyone…and sadly, it's sometimes the only time we get to see each other in person (thank goodness for email, phones and facebook!!)
A tradition that I try to keep to (but it's oh so difficult) is one of cleaning the house for the new year. In the spirit, I spent a fair bit of time clearing out my stamping room….but then got so inspired, I got creative, so the room got almost as messy as it had started…I need to learn how to create without making a mess!!
Anyway, as I was sorting through things, I found these cards that I don't think that I'd shared on here! We created these at the Stampin' Up! Regional Training Event a while back. It's a set of notecards using the Clockworks set. I'm not usually a collage-type image person, but when you have samples to copy, it makes it easier – at least it feels easier!
If you also like to create but sometimes get stumped for ideas, I invite you to try one of my stamping classes! I hold monthly classes in Burlington ON – the first Wednesday of every month (unless otherwise noted). If that doesn't work for you, another option is to host your own class – get a group of friends together and I'll come to you! A new, third option coming in 2013 is my ONLINE CLASS option! I'm creating a series of classes that you can purchase a la carte and get inspiration and ideas in the comfort of your own home! I'm looking forward to being able to do these classes for you wherever you are – look out, I'm going global!! LOL. Sign up for my mailing list to be sure to be in the loop as to the firm launch date of the first class (it will be in January, for sure, just not sure of the exact date right now…) Join me and make a new year's resolution to get crafty and get some "me" time in there!!
