Anybody else excited it's the weekend?? I don't know about you, but I am tired of the kids school schedule... When is it Summer? This week has been non-stop "mom I need this" or "mom, I need you to buy this for my class" or "can you take me here" or "I need to be at school early"... yikes... no complaints though.. my girls are the BEST! I am so blessed to have happy, healthy girls who are trying to be Godly little girls as well... (and that's not easy in this day and age :)-
So I've been running around today as fast as I can to get my car smogged, check out a few antique stores in town for some items... all I got was this:
What I'm LOOKING for is old board games (have an idea for them :), old cupcake pan, the small picture postcards in b&w (for my INSPIRED class) and old bottle caps... I guess I'll have to look online AND when I go to the Rose Bowl Flea Market! Can't WAIT to go next month when they have it! Anyone want to meet me there? I already told my hubby we're going for the day down there the next time they have it but he only lasts for so long...
So what is everyone doing this weekend?
I'm thinking because it's going to be a stormy weekend here in So. Cal, I'm going to go get food supplies for the whole weekend, make a quick run to JoAnns for some fabric and I'm going to hunker down in my craft room! I have been making flowers like a maniac lately and have another idea I want to play around with...
But I also want to finish up a few things I started a couple days ago... I don't know about you ladies, but I can't ever seem to sit down and finish a project from start to finish... Can you? I have WAY to many distractions for that... But eventually I finish them and here's what I want to finish this weekend:
more goodies for the kits!!! Well the top stuff you see mostly is for this months ( I needed more then I originally ordered) but the stuff underneath... well, you'll just have to wait to see that! hehehe...
Speaking about Prima... I think Judy and I decided on our May Online Class and baby, it is PRIMA LOADED!!! (and think Donna Downey :) Which is cool b/c I'm teaching in May at Donna's INSPIRED so it will really tie in nicely there... And it will be a Mother's Day type of theme and we're going to try to get my oldest daughter to sit in and do the class with me! So that will be a FUN class and one you can do with your daughter OR SON! YES, it's a project that is for ANYONE! and boys will even like it!! Gotcha thinking don't I?? ;)-
Speaking of my Online Classes... I have almost everything kitted and ready to go! I'm going to mail out the class kit on March 8th, on the same day I will be mailing out the March kits! I'm doing that for two reasons... First, I can mail both things together if you are getting a March kit and have bought a class kit and I will adjust your shipping so you don't have to pay twice! Pretty nice huh?? lol... And Second, because I will be in Arizona filming with Scrapbook.com next week I looked at the calendar and won't have time to get the kits out until the 8th... So, if you STILL NEED TO SIGN UP FOR THE CLASS, please do so SOON! I have about 11 people who have bought the kit but didn't sign up the CLASS yet... So go to http://www.virtueradionetwork.com/Cropped.htm and sign up now! The Registration ENDS ON MARCH 12!! Btw, if you follow that link, you'll see a quick little video from the day we filmed the class...(Ty, this is NOT for you to go look at and laugh at...ugh...Brothers :)-
The other thing I want to finish this weekend is this:
This is literally a work in progress. I simply went out into the garage, ripped off a side flap of a cardboard box, came back inside and tore it to pieces, put gesso all over it, distressed the Donna Downey canvas paper (in the March kit) and am going to give it some color with paint and paper and I'll share the Tutorial on here next week! Read the quote if you can, it's so great by Ralph Waldo Emerson. And check out the Vintage Clothes Pin that a lady stamped for the March kit! (she did 3 different designs and I'm keeping one of each because I couldn't decide which one I liked best ;)-
man I use WAY too many sideways smiles ;)- lol... has anyone left my blog b/c they can't take it anymore??
OH!! I totally forgot to show you this... my VERY FIRST CARD! I've mentioned this before but I just don't make cards... I don't know why, but there is just some force in the universe that was telling me I suck at making cards, so I never got past that... until now!
Ta Da! My 1st card...
I embossed the word ADORATION, sprayed Glimmer Mist and then chalked it and added some stuff from the March kit. not bad huh...
It's probably very basic compared to you REAL card makers... But, I have to say I'm pretty proud of myself for this step I've taken to crush that inner voice telling me I couldn't! Yes I CAN.... sort of...
Well, I'm off to start the weekend by picking up the kids from school and figuring out their schedules for the weekend.
OH, don't forget to come back here on MONDAY for the March kit REVEAL!!! Yes, AND... did you see the Scrap Scene Ad??
Go check out this link and you'll see the FULL KIT!! Well, almost the full kit, I have a few things that aren't in that picture but I'll explain those in detail on MOnday! Remember, the kits will go LIVE on MONDAY, MARCH 1st at 7pm PST!!!
Have a GREAT weekend everyone!
Hugs to all,
