yes i suck at blogging

I try.

Really i do.

I suck at it but really…its my blog and i’ll blog if i want to 🙂

What’s new?



Teaching like crazy and loving every minute of it.  As a matter of fact I’m headed to Florida on the 13th for another whirlwind tour. Then i think i’m off for a month or so until my really big trip in Chicago in July. So if you’re in Florida and you want to get your ink on….look a girl up 🙂  My stops are listed under upcoming classes

At the homestead things are about as normal as possible in my life. Ups and downs and round and rounds. 2 of my kids trying to be growed ups…one not doing so well and the other…well…we’ll see.
2 graduations next month. One from high school and one from middle school.  Proud mama!!

Some really cool things in the works, amazing trips in place and lots of creativity.
Could life really get any better?

My first stop in Florida on the 15th is at Paper Niche. I’ll be teaching 2 classes.  Tatttered Tips and Techniques and Creative Canvas.  Here is a sample of one of the classes…

Hope you can come by and play with us! Its going to be a ton of fun.

You can call the store at 954-577-0999 to reserve your spot.

Colorado Classes!

Had a great time in Colorado with Shawna. It definitely feels different with Tattered Angels not there but fun just the same. We took Andy out while we were there and had some serious fun. I taught a class at the cutest store in Estes Park, Rocky Mountain Memories! Totally loved it. Then i taught a class in a fabulous store in Fort Collins called Scrap 2 It. If you’re ever in either of these areas you must check out both of these stores. We are going back to both stores in March. Come get scrappy with us. GREAT stuff coming up! Keep checking back…

Ultimate Scrapbook Cruise


What a fabulous week it’s been. I was fortunate enough to have been invited on the Ultimate Scrapbook Cruise along with some amazingly talented women. Wendy Senger, Debby Schuh, Heidi Swapp and Stacy Julian. We left Ft. Lauderdale on Saturday on the Carnival Freedom to set sail to the Caribbean for 8 glorious days and 5 amazing ports. Incredible!

Our ports were Puerto Rico, St Thomas, Tortola, Antigua and Nassau Bahamas. I’ll share a little of each over the next few days.

Stay tuned……

Newest Creation

Now that i’m done updating classes i can start updating my scrappy goodness.

This is an album i was doing for my latest vacation and i shared it on Facebook and voila…it became my next class.  This album is packed full of yummy Tattered Angels goodness! $72 retail value. I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out.  I need a super strong adhesive when i work because my samples get handled so much and this seems to be holding very well.


SOME of the products used are Fascination folder, fascination folder inserts, framed fonts, glaze, glam, mist, resist, Helmar 450 quick dry, helmar tape runner.  SO much fun!

you can check my schedule in the sidebar over there <--------------------- to see where my next class will be.
