New Catalog and Techniques Class

Hi Everyone!

Sorry to have not been a good blog updater, but I have been busy creating....

My shipment of the new catalogs arrived yesterday, and it seems like perfect timing that my Technique class is this Sunday at 1pm at my house. E-mail me if you need a new catalog, or I will be sure to get you one at an upcoming class... I really like all of the new things in the catalog, lots of new stamps, papers...just yummy!

I also am really excitied about this weekend's class, we are sure to have inky fingers! Also, this series has been so enjoyable I am thinking of running it again...if you are interested in building a technique book, and getting together once a month, e-mail me at Each class is $20 and we cover 3-5 techniques based on content each session. The new classes will have different techniques than last session, and require the monthly commitment , this series will run July- Dec.

I am also scheduling additional classes for the month of July... check back this weekend for the full schedule.

Have a creative week!

Copic Club Anyone?

Copic Markers are all the rage in my local area, with a lot of us just recently jumping on the bandwagon, (what were we waiting for?). In an effort to get our selection of colors stocked in our stash, and keep costs down, I am proposing a Copic Club....what is a Copic Club you say....well it is an opportunity for stampers to come together and make a monthly purchase, for a set price. It does require a commitment, of 6 months to achieve a full set of 36 markers, but you do get to pay as you go. For example: The first club will be to complete a full set of Copic Original Markers-36. For $30 a month, you will receive 6 markers including shipping for 6 months. Additionally, with your first shipment, you will receive a Colorless blender pen, as my Thank you gift for enrolling in the club. Your last shipment, you will receive the box for your set. These markers are refillable.

So this post, is to gauge interest in forming the club. Anyone can join, as I will post a Paypal link for monthly payments, and I can ship anywhere. * International shipping may require additional postage surcharge.

If you would be interested, please leave a comment on this blog entry, or e-mail me privately at, with questions. Club to begin in July and run through December.
