Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all my friends that enjoy craft projects.

In the near future look for the following types of posts...

  • many Valentine's Day projects
  • projects from the Occasions Mini Catalog (begins January 4th)
  • projects from the Sale-a-Bration Catalog (begins January 24th)
I hope everyone had a blessed holiday season and are planning a new year full of joy shared with family and friends.  Remember, handmade and handwritten notes are a precious way to show someone how much you care.  For those of you with My Digital Studio, those cards count to - you still took the time to think of and create a card especially for that person.

Contact me anytime to schedule a workshop and have fun with friends learning about creative products and techniques.  As a hostess, you have several benefits and options to earn exclusive, free or discounted products.  Also, if you host during Sale-a-Bration (January 24 - March 31), there are addition hostess items.
