Hi, remember me? Sorry I have not posted for soooo long! Life has been flying by! Kathie and I returned from our teaching and vendor duties (I use that term loosely) at Donna Downey's Inspired event. It truly was inspiring! We came home with lots of new friends and a ton of new ideas (and some pretty good stories to tell).
So, when we got home, we both discovered that we have been published again in Take Ten. This was a wonderful surprise considering that neither of us had submitted cards for the Summer 2010 issue. I guess they pulled some of our cards on file to print. Anyway, a pleasant surprise.
As I resumed my life and all of its responsibilities, Kathie worked like crazy to get ready for the show we did this weekend in Springfield, MA.
It was a great weekend (with the exception of the tornado warnings on both Saturday and Sunday) and we met a lot of wonderful women that are more "local" and may be able to attend our monthly crops--so that was exciting!
On the way home, Kathie and I were full of ideas for our first "double-header" crop the end of June. It will be our first two-day crop and we are planning some great classes. We already have a good amount of sign ups from our beloved "regulars", so if you are thinking of coming and have not yet signed up--what are you waiting for?!?!?

A few layouts from this month's kit.....

Here are a few layouts that I did using some of the paper and embellisments from the Scrapendipity kit of the month.

More cards from desk scraps.....

A couple of more cards with the scraps from my messy desk (should have taken a picture of that!). This beautiful paper from Webster's Pages makes it easy to create a quick, but elegant card with just a little stamping. Once again, I used "Regal Greetings" stamp set from the new {ippity} line. This set, as well as all the new releases are available at

Doin' a little coloring......

I was cleaning some scraps off my desk this morning and came across this piece of a 12 x 12 Webster's pages paper (left over from the "evolve" book that I did at the crop this past Sunday) and decided to do a little coloring with my copics. I then stamped the sentiment with "missing you" from the {ippity} set, "Regal Greetings". You can't really see it in the picture, but I sprayed the entire image with iridescent gold glimmer mist and added a little resin rose from Making Memories.

Inspired 2010 mini workshop registration.

Today (or last night) at midnight, was registration for the mini-workshops at the upcoming inspired 2010. Can't wait to see how many signed up for the workshop that I will be teaching......
If you can't make the trip to North Carolina--not to worry, I plan to teach the "Cherish" canvas class locally. I will post when and where soon.

Chicks & Chocolate Crop.....

Yesterday was our "Chicks & Chocolate" crop. As usual lots of laughs! Thank you to Ellen for making these yummy chocolate covered peeps. We sold out of our new line of {ippity} stamps and took orders for more--yeah! We will be posting photos of all the stamp sets as they become available at
