Come join me at a Pajama Party…

…at Big Picture Classes!  Tonight at 6pm west coast time….which is 9pm east coast time  (just about the time I am usually changing into PJ’s anyway!) Hang out at the party, join in a virtual make and take, chat on the message boards and work on a project of your own.  There’s a rumor that yours truly may be making some kind of an appearance!  we’ll see!  My children have strict instructions to be in bed, quietly reading to themselves at 9pm tonight  (we’ll see how well that works!!)



Hope to “see” you there!!

Big Big news here!!

My big big news for the day (actually week and month!)… I will be contributing to the latest class from Stacy Julian and Jennifer Wilson at Big Picture Classes!  I can’t begin to tell you how excited and thrilled I am to be working with these amazing ladies…. and when you get a personal email from Stacy Julian saying she likes your work and wants you to help teach a class…you say yes ma’am!!  (for my non-scrappy savvy friends, Stacy Julian is one of the driving forces in the modern scrapbook world!)



Check out the class description here: the art + science of scrapbooking

So all my scrappy friends, come check out the Art + Science of Scrapbooking. Registration is on now through May 21. Class is four weeks, 2 challenges per teacher per week. I will be the “right brained” scrapper (no surprise there) doing the “left brained” challenges. Come on over and sign up!!

Can ya tell I’m just a little excited?!
