Our Second Saturday Scrappers had such a good time making Thanksgiving cards last year that we’re going to do it again! Saturday, October 10, we will have a card workshop featuring the Fallen Leaves card from Close To My Heart’s Annual Inspirations 2015-2016 Idea Book. Come make 10 cards (5 each of two designs) to let your family and friends know how special they are.
The Fallen Leaves card is in Desert Sand, Fern, and Saffron inks on Glacier paper…perfect for crisp Thanksgiving weather!
The basic kit is $13.50, and includes enough supplies to make 10 cards using my ink and stamps. 5 sheets Desert Sand card stock, 5 sheets White Daisy card stock, 1 sheet Glacier card stock, 1 sheet Fern card stock, Fern Thick Twine, and 10 White Daisy Envelopes.
The enhanced kit is $27.50, and adds the Fallen Leaves and Always Grateful MyAcrylix Stamp Sets to the Basic Kit.

The deluxe kit is $48.00, and adds the Fern, Saffron, and Slate Exclusive Inks. You won’t need to borrow anything, and you will add to your stamping supplies!
To save your spot in the workshop, RSVP by September 30 via FaceBook at PhotofunwithFawn or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Kits must be ordered in advance…I will contact you for payment with credit/debit card or PayPal when I receive your RSVP.

I am totally “craft challenged”. Even though I still do fairly “naked” scrapbook pages, I am still the slowest dancer at the party. If I were being paid by the hour for my crafting, I would most likely starve. But I craft anyway, and I like to think I am getting better!
I am the proud owner of a Cricut Expressions2 that I have had for at least five years and have plugged in twice. I have every intention of learning to use it, and haul it with me on a regular basis when I scrapbook. Perhaps I will actually use it this weekend at our School of Rock Retreat.
All that being said, I yearn for a dedicated papercrafting/scrapbooking space. I buy every issue of “Where Women Create” when it hits the news stand, and pore over the beautiful photos of studios and “open concept” rooms, lusting after stacks and stacks of coordinated boxes, bins, and shelves of products.
Right now my newly-created crafting space is a 2’X3′ folding table smack dab in the middle of my bedroom. By turning my body slightly to the left I can move from my computer to the table without leaving my chair. And two steps farther puts me in bed.
The beauty of this space is that I am actually using it for creating. I’m hard at work making treat boxes/place cards for this weekend’s retreat, times 24. Then will come cutting and preparing kits for my card-making workshop. And then pricing product to take for sale. This small space will be a hubbub of activity this week.
The point of this is to say, “Don’t be discouraged if you have a tiny space, or even a kitchen table you must borrow and clean off daily.” There is room in your life for crafting if you want to do it. So craft away, and dream of an airy, sun filled workspace “someday”.
My tiny crafting space…yes, the blob of pink is my bedspread…right next to the work table.
Thanks to amazingly spotty internet service at the Disneyland Hotel, even getting online has been well nigh impossible, so blogging just hasn’t happened. This week has been absolutely amazing, and once I get home to reliable service I will be posting pictures, as promised.
This morning was our 5K run to benefit Operation Smile…and I must say it was definitely easier this year than last, thanks in part, I’m sure, to me being twenty pounds lighter than last year. I had great walking partners, too, which made it lots of fun. And the Disneyland and California Adventure employees who lined our route and cheered us on were delightful! I find it amazing that it is 8:15 in the morning and I have already walked three and a half miles, changed clothes, and had breakfast…with Extravaganza awaiting at 9:00 a.m.!
This is our last official Convention day, and tomorrow I will explore California Adventure for the first time. Monday will be spent on the train going home. The seven hour plus trip will give me plenty of “quiet time” to review my notes from this week and design a game-plan for the upcoming year.
It is Second Saturday Scrapping time again this weekend. We will be changing our start time a bit because of my work schedule, but I will be there by 10:30 a.m., and we can stay as late as we want because I won’t be working Saturday night. Please come join us at The Little House (939 South Chinowth Street, Visalia, CA). Bring your current project or pictures that need sorting…I will have the June Stamp of the Month to show and a limited amount of papers, inks, etc. for sale.
This adorable card was made from the June Stamp of the Month, “Ice Cream Dream”.
The Stamp of the Month can be yours for $5.00 with a $50 purchase in the month of June (a $17.95 retail value).
Another fun idea for “Ice Cream Dreams”…this 12 X 12 scrapbook layout.
