Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends. We always get caught up in the hustle and bustle. We need to stop and enjoy time with one another. It is a great time to learn family history. Or hear those funny tales of days gone by. Sharing love for one another. Always laughing with one another. I have hit that age when I am never sure what will come out of my mouth. Sometimes the brain doesn't remember the right word or the right way to say something. It is great having family and friends that know what I meant anyway.
This week we only have one class at the shop. Tomorrow will be our last card class for 2015. Can't believe next week will be our first card class for 2016. Wow!!!
Tomorrow is the Card Blitz. Please bring the following tools to class. Big paper cutter, big score board, and the envelope punch board. Mine will be there for you to use if you do not have them. And the ladies are good about sharing. Be well rested. The ladies and I had a wild time today!!!!!
The ladies requested a third layout for this week's class. The only requirement were the layouts had to be simple. Here is the third layout. We will see if we get to the third or if it will roll over to the next class.
My goodness we are in October!!!!! Wish this cool weather would stay for a little while longer. It has been wonderful sleeping with the windows open. Waking up to the birds singing in the morning. The kitty cat came to the window calling out to me. Ready to eat.
Tuesday is our card class. Be there on time cause we have a full morning!!! Come rested and ready to work. You might want to bring a snack!!! You will need your small scoreboard. We will be using colored pencils for one project. The colors I used are: black, orange, Canari, and lime peel. These are Prisma colors. Be ready to have some fun!!!!
This weekend is our makeup weekend. Please let me know if you plan to be there. Some are coming Friday. I need a head count to decide if I will do one or two days.

As we remember 911. The loss of life. Those first responders who so courageously put their lives on the line to help others. Let us remember that everyday these men and women are putting there lives on the line for our protection. That single day of Heroism plays out in there lives everyday they put on their uniforms. As we remember and pray for our Nation on this day, let us also pray for the men and women who step up to this calling for our protection today.
The Card Blitz went great!!!! The ladies stayed on task and we were out of here earlier than I was anticipating.
Big group scheduled for next weeks' card class. I could do a class both Tuesday and Thursday. Let me know if you would like to come to card class on Thursday instead of Tuesday. I know everyone liked being together in one big group today. So it is fine with me to do one big class.
Our make up day is on the second Saturday of the month. There were some scheduling conflicts so we cancelled today's class. If there is interest we can plan for a day later in the month. Just let me know if you are interested in coming on Friday the 24th or Saturday the 25th.
Just a quick note to enable you. Sizzix.com is having a big 4th of July weekend sale. Some super deals. They also have the new Big Shot machine on sale. This is the new die cutter that will cut a full 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper. The sale runs until the 6th.
Sad day today at the house. We lost our pasture buddy, Pokey. I am gonna miss patting and telling him what a good boy he was for standing still as I put on his blanket. He was a mess and too smart. We put his feed in a big water trough. Yes, he had gotten to the point where he would drop his food so we gave him a bigger dish. He would flip the trough over on it's side to look for stray grain. I would start to walk out with the bucket of feed and he would flip that trough back up. He knew the trough had to be up for the feed. I told you he was a mess. If he was in the back pasture and saw you come out the back door he would come running. I was amazed that he could run like that at his age. His best trick was to hang over the fence pretending he had not been fed. We had to come up with a system to let one another know he had been fed. Animals are wonderful but it is too hard when you loose them.
My goodness it was beautiful day today. I watched some birds play in the fountain as I walked back and forth working on the layout for this week. It sure was nice to see that fountain not frozen over for a change.
This is our layout week and I have our first layout ready. My brothers made a little trip together. I wanted to use the title 'Trouble' but used 'Good Times' instead. :-)
My goodness here we are at the tail end of January. It looks like tomorrow will be a rainy day for us. Those are the kind of days you want to curl up and watch movies. I know some of you want to read. I used to read a lot until the eyes started going haywire. Now most of my reading is on Facebook or e-mails.Both those things you can pick up and leave anytime. Once you are into a good book you are stuck. You don't want to put it down.
Next Thursday is our layout class. So I have the first page done.
February calendar: Card class on the 3rd and 17th. Layout class on the 12th and 26th. Make-up day is usually the second Saturday but the ladies reminded me that it will be on Valentine's day. We will have make-up day on Friday the 13th. I will let you know what days I will be at the shop for you to look through the available kits. Blitz will be on the 20th and the 21st. Remember to please let me know ahead of time if you plan to attend any of the events. I am not cutting extra kits. An event maybe canceled because there are not enough people signed up.
