april 27…oh my
Where does the time go!? April has been a blur, no joke… I about fainted when I realized that today was the 27th. Not that I didn’t cram A LOT into this month, but I am feeling like I had a lot more that needed to be crammed in! 3 more days…smile. I am beat.
Friday night eric got home at midnight from traveling back to China, and Sat. morning we were in a 24 foot Budget rental moving van loading all our boxes that have been in storage, and transporting everything back to our home. Man, we have a lot of STUFF (that we don’t need). feels weird. but the desert looks stunningly beautiful this time of year…everything is in bloom, and it’s KILLING ME w/ the allergies, but it does look beautiful. And it’s so quiet out there. The stars are so bright and the view is incredible…I love it. I opened up all my boxes from my studio- all the stuff I left behind. It was so fun to open all my JUNK!!! Junk junk junk… I loved it. and if Capri and connor weren’t ripping through it just as fast as I was, I might have been feeling inspired! You know what is so great? My studio there in my old house, has SO many drawers, nooks and crannys…and I am totally rearranging everything… it’s feeling exciting! (how did I live without it??) … and Scrapbooks ETC right down the road. Great store the number is (480)854-2303… I am actually lucky enough to be teaching there on May 6th and 7th… I am teaching my ‘energy journal’ class… it’s a great project, definitely right in time for getting ready for the end of school, mother’s day-don’t you always feel that need to recharge your battery around mother’s day? … and taking a look at your ENERGY in and out. i am bringing along a SWEET little 'energy' in!! made special for us by Elizabeth Banks… the friendly neighborhood cook! (so many of you bought her cookbook!! she only has a couple left! she was delighted!!) i believe that there are just a few more spots available for that class… so check it out! I will be teaching it this weekend as well in Houston at By Design. if you are in the area, please come say HI on Saturday! (big party!) I am thankful for the chance I have had to revisit the whole concept as I have been preparing my presentation. I need this ENERGY journal now more than ever. Smile. My weekend w/ the girls in Texas is coming at just the right time! I need a ‘girl weekend’!!! now THAT is ENERGY IN! you can never underestimate the power of CREATING! And learning and trying something new. just totally powers the creative!
I am also teaching a full on technique class in Houston. It’s actually the same technique class that I am planning on teaching up north in Edmonton on May 30th! It’s going to be SO full of fresh ideas and possibilities! It’s going to be a fun one to teach. You’ll be amazed what you can do with a blank piece of cardstock…(the 2 top images are from a 12" page that we create starting with a totally WHITE piece of dotted swiss Bazzill Cardstock on sale right now at Scrabook.com!) the class focuses on using my new ‘mega masks’… but combine them with other masks, stamps and my brand new invisibles. And of course, its ink-ilicious! Here is a little peek!! There are still spots available in Edmonton as well…
Last week, I gave away a spot to my weekend in Houston.. and I also would like to give away not ONE but 2 spots to my Edmonton ALL DAY event on May 30!! You can read more about what we’ll be doing that day HERE, and If you leave me a comment (be sure that you can COME on May 30th if you submit a comment!) I will be selecting ONE winner, and you can invite anyone you like to come with yoU! how FUN is that?! totally an ENERGY IN!
here is to finding and focusing on all the positive energy flowing in, and giving you the POWER to do your thing!
