Dust off your heat guns and embossing powders......

Quiet On The Set!

What a whirlwind day!  

I filmed two mini videos that go inside a card class.  Then filmed 3 workshop videos along with planning two card classes, one on youtube and one live in my home. 

I was also able to get the card class video edited and it is trying to upload as we speak.  Mike is going to have to help me with some editing because I made a boo boo during filming and need to learn a new technique to fix it.

(side by side editing)

Oh, and before I forget .... 
the 2018 Crop Dates are listed on the right side bar.  Yes, you read that right.  Crops are coming back.  

I am having a blast teaching via youtube and I am thankful for each and every one of you.  Hopefully the online classes are reaching my out of town ladies that wanted to attend classes but are just too far away to make it possible.  

Mike and I have plans to upgrade my space and filming area so the lighting will be better for you.  We have to partially kick the kid out of the nest to make it happen but you are worth it.  :-) 

I know it seems like I am not as active has I have been in years past but there is so much going on behind the scenes that I am excited about and so many things I am learning.  

Kaela is on track to graduate from The University of North Texas May 2019 so as soon as she is out of school I will be able to shift back over to full time consultant status - but have no fear.... my planner is full of plans and dreams!

So until I am back to creating full time please enjoy the youtube classes each week (ish) and know that I am thinking about you.

I am grateful for you!

Make It From Your Heart Vol 3 Sneak Peek

Make It From Your Heart Vol 3

Since the cat is out of the bag over on the CTMH blog I thought I would go ahead and give a sneak peek of my personal favorite item in the new Idea Book that launches Aug 1, 2017

Make It from Your Heart™ Volume 3

Item Number: 9043

I just received my personal copy of Make it from your heart Vol 3 and I am in love. It is a must purchase. This version is a little different from the ones in the past... You will need to purchase an Everyday Life Album to put the MIFYH Vol 3 in. The pages are so thick and sturdy that this is the better binding option. 

You can still order the Everyday Life™ Album—Sea Glass

Item Number: Z4027 until July 31. After that date you will have the option of the Black and White Stripe album or our new Bashful album. I have the Bashful album and it matches perfectly.

I will be filming a little haul video of the new products that I brought back from convention soon.  Stay tuned.

Hello Lovely - Workshop Your Way

Good Morning!

I was trying to wait to on this blog post for the editing of the corresponding You Tube Video but the editing is taking a bit longer than we expected.  My daughter is working on getting my entire head out of the frame so you can see what is on the page!  I guess it could have been worse... a least my hair was clean!

For the month of February we are working with the Hello Lovely Workshop Your Way kit.  
Kit contents:
1 – Hello Lovely paper packet (X7216B)
1 – Hello Lovely Complements (X7216C)
4 – cardstock sheets (4 White Daisy)
1 – gold glitter gems (Z3312)
1 – blush shimmer ribbon (Z3313)

I love the soft beauty of these layouts.  They feel like wedding pages to me so I think I am going to make a note in my sisters album to save these pages for a few of her wedding photos... 
(shhh: she was just surprised with a fabulous engagement ring) 

As soon as Kaela is finished editing the video (hopefully by this weekend depending on her homework load) I will post it here and on my facebook page.

Note: While the video will be on You Tube once posted the Hello Lovely WYW will only be available until April 30, 2017.  Also once the paper sells out CTMH will not be re-stocking it.
