Happy First Day of Spring!

Well it's finally the first day of spring today. Yay. I am so tired of the cold, but as many of you know, here in California we have a couple weeks of spring and then HOT is here. On this first day of spring I had the best intentions of finding a beautiful springy background for my blog, but my computer savvy is not so great and neither is my patience for all things computer, so this is what I have for today. When I have more time, I am going to figure out how to create my own. So here are a couple of pics to help you get in the "Spring" mood. It seems like just yesterday my tree in the backyard was bare, but this a.m. there are leaves! This makes me happy. I have also created yet another box for Glimmer Mist. This one I created for my friend Nancy. She chose these great colors: Forest Green and Moonlight Glimmer Mist. I will be at Scrapbook Blvd tomorrow for the Gypsy Days, so channel your inner Gypsy and come on down! We will be doing a make and take from 10:00 to 2:00 featuring 7 gypsies products and of course Glimmer Mist. Hope to see you there! Have a great first day of spring!

Happy St. Patricks Day!

Top O' the mornin to ya! Well it's St. Patricks day so we had our annual green pancake breakfast today. The girls made glimmer pins for themselves and put Glimmer Mist in their hair. I didn't get a pic of the hair cause by this time we were running late, not a very lucky start to the day. I might even get really into it today and make some St. Pat's day projects. But for now, here are a few pics of my girls getting into the green. Have a lucky day!

Monday March Mix Up

Happy Monday everyone. Well, it's week three of the Tattered Angels, Crafty Secrets March Mix up, where the design teams from both companies create projects using products from both companies to create lovely little works of art. It's my turn today along with Liz Hicks-TA
Michelle Jackson-TA
Marisa Grosson-CS
Anna Wight-CS
Let me just say, I enjoyed working with both of these products so much, it was hard to choose which booklet from Crafty Secrets to start with, so since it is spring I started with the Birds and Botanicals Image and Journal notes. I will be posting more projects combining Tattered Angels with Crafty Secrets in the next couple of weeks because once I started I couldn't stop. The possibilities are endless. I love,love,love the way the glimmer mist took to the unfinished wood on the birdhouse, and on the corrugated cardboard on the wallhanging. I used Copper, Patina, Olive Vine, Coffee Shop, and Creme de Chocolate on the bird house, and I used Patina, Olive Vine, Coffee Shop, Tuscan Sun, and Brick on the wallhanging. I also used Glimmer Glass Nature on the wallhanging, and Creme de Chocolate Glimmer Chips on the bird house. This was so much fun, and now I have a couple new decorations for my living room!

Class at Ever After

Saturday February 28 was my Reflections of Love Class at Ever After Scrapbooks in Vista, CA. It was a packed house, and we had a fabulously glimmery good time! These ladies were on it. What a great group of people. Everyone finished, and on time! Jennifer Priest taught her Princess Crown album class for Scrapbook Royalty in the morning, and then I taught my class in the afternoon. Elena of Scrapbook Royalty came by during Jennifers Class and did some Fairy Fly by's, and I gave away some bottles of Glimmer Mist(see pics above), then at the end of the day, Jennifer gave away the big basket of goodies! Go to the Scrapbook Royalty site for more info on this great charity, and go to Jennifer Priests blog for more pictures of this great event. I can't wait to teach my next class, the Glimmer Mist Nature book at Ever After Sunday April 26th.
