Happy Holidays!

I just wanted to wish everyone a happy holiday season! Our Christmas was wonderful and we are looking forward to the new year. Here are a few pics from Christmas morning. G-ma came over and made her signature Eggs Benedict (with a twist). We use Cheez Whiz instead of Hollandaise sauce! Very white-trashy, I know! It started when the kids were little and they didn't like the Hollandaise sauce, so we improvised! Now it is tradition and we wouldn't have it any other way! The boys look forward to having G-ma come over and make breakfast on Christmas morning.

Our Christmas dinner was amazing and we had a house full of family! I was so busy cooking and getting everything ready that I didn't snap one picture in the evening. Bummer. The prime rib was gorgeous! I guess you have to take my word for it tho!

I hope your holidays were amazing and that you are thankful for your blessings in life! More crafty stuff to come soon! Take care!

New Classes for the New Year!

Well, the time is coming for our new class schedule at the Stamp Art Shoppe to come out! Sandy is working hard on the newsletter and website this week and it should be ready for the last week of December. Yay! It is so much fun to work in the store and see the beautiful samples that our teachers have worked so hard on. It always blows me away with the amount of creativity and talent we have in our teachers! I hope that you try classes from everyone and sample their talented work.

We have a guest teacher returning this March so be sure to watch for the sign-ups. And with CHA the end of January, I am sure Sandy will be bringing back treasures from the show! It should be an exciting time for classes and shopping at the store!

I am excited for my classes as well. I have a few returning classes, The Mastering the Basics Series I, II, and III, but I have revamped the Copic Marker classes into one workshop with a workbook that we will use to practice many techniques. I kept the price low so that you can take it over and over again if you want! Look for my Foiled Love class if you enjoyed the Foil Cards from ArtBytes. Cards from the heart returns again with some quick and fun cards that can be used for Valentine's Day or just for greetings. If you are looking for technique-rich classes you might want to try my Artsy Canvas Cards or Shabby French Plaque classes. More pictures to come soon!

Thanks for stoping by!
