It is officially countdown time for Inspiration Unlimited 2010 and sneak peaks of my class as well as the other amazing classes will debut starting tomorrow....Make sure to go on over to the IU Blog to check it out...I am so excited and blessed to be returning this year as a core teacher and if you are coming, BE READY FOR SOME FUN!!!!
I also am super excited to announce that I will be traveling to PA in November to teach TWO WORKSHOPS at Grove's. I hope to have all of the info by this time next week...yipppeee...I *HEART* Staci Shuck and already know that I am going to LOVE their store!!!

I am currently working on some super class samples for my upcoming classes at "Oh, Scrap!" in Costa Mesa so be sure to watch my blog (as well as theirs) for announcements...Here is the link to "Oh, Scrap!" http://ohscrapblog.wordpress.com/
I am now obsessed with Tricia Barrett and her new company, "Epiphany Crafts"....making PERFECT little embellishments to compliment and coordinate with my Teresa Collins projects. It is an amazing little tool that makes me smile every time I use it...(see that little circle in the middle of the flower that says "Blessed" ? that is what I made using the tool and a little word from this paper
and see that little circle on the center of the "LiveWith Gratitude"die cut, it is a scrap of the bar code strip from a Teresa Collins paper...helloooo!!!!
and lastly, I am working on LOTS of fun things for my return trip to South Africa in October...and let me just tease you a tiny bit that we are going to be making stamps....using felt...cutting paper...stitching..and doodling of course...and lots more...I am mixed with emotions for this trip as I am ANXIOUS to get there and be there...but you know me, I have been homesick for the past few months and have not even gone yet....p.s...do not wait to long to sign up...I am so flattered to be able to say it is almost SOLD OUT...I *Heart* SA!
Have a wonderful rest of your weekend....
