I am SO excited I can't even tell you.  I was chosen to be a featured artist at this year's Create Your Retreat at the Seven Feathers Casino Resort. It is so much fun. There are many classes you can take, but tickets are selling out fast. Make sure to click the link above and check out the website so you can purchase your tickets and get signed up for some classes. I will be instructing the Heartfelt Creations Enchanted Mums collection, which I just taught at Memories of Time. I will also be featuring a few other cards that you can make as well.  I will also be posting pictures as the event approaches. My three helpers, Gwen, Kimberly and Kathy will be in tow.  It is going to be great fun. All of the products I use are available through the store at Memories of Time and, the owner, Michelle, a talented scrapbooker, will also have a booth at the event.  We can't wait to see you there.

February is fast approaching and it's time to get those Valentine cards ready for your special somebodies. This Thursday, January 28, between noon and 4 p.m., I will be at Memories of Time teaching everyone to make this beautiful Valentine card.  I hope you will come by and join me.  As always it will be a day filled with crafters, laughter and friendly banter.

This month's Heartfelt Creations class was dedicated to the Enchanted Mums collection. The petals for this card are intricate, but not as tough to make as they look. As always, we had a lot of fun and everyone loved their cards. 


Now that the holidays are fast-behind us, I can finally get caught up with my blog.  I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and that you all created beautiful memories, meals and crafts with the ones you love.  I have so much to catch you up on so I wanted to share a few pictures of the things I made during the holidays and then I will catch you up on upcoming events, etc.

The box and the tree card (the tree folds open from each side) are die cuts that I purchased at Memories of Time.  The box is about 2x2x4 and has a lattice top that I tied two ribbons around for a lacy, sleek look. Insert a battery tea-light candle inside and voila, the cutest luminary. These were projects that I taught at Memories of Time for one of our Make and Take Thursdays. It was such a fun day.

I teach a class once a month at Memories of Time using the Heartfelt Creations tablet.  The classes are usually on a Wednesday and generally begin at noon. The cost is just $35.00 and you get to make four cards to take home as well as keep the rest of the 12x12 tablet for future use. My December Heartfelt Creations class was from the Everyday Heroes collection.  Isn't it a beautiful line?  The cards turned out great and it was so much fun.

November was one of my favorite Heartfelt Creations lines.  These cards were made from the Farmer's Market collection. Aren't they beautiful? The turnout for this class was excellent and as always, we had such a wonderful time creating, laughing and swapping recipes (sure...lol).
