THE Latest Info On My Christmas Workshops

I finally have my artwork photos up for you to see! I tell you, I am like an old dog when it comes to learning blog technology, but it has been easier than I expected it to be. If I can learn it, anybody can!
I've made a couple of changes regarding dates, so here is the latest for you:

Card Workshop: Saturday, November 14, 9-12 at my home in Horseshoe Valley
Come out and make some beautiful Christmas cards! You have two options: you can assemble your cards from a card kit or stamp your own cards. The circle cards shown are from the card kit and there are 3 of each design in the kit for a total of 12 cards (includes envelopes.) The other cards shown are 4 1/4 x 5 1/2; you can make one or both designs for a total of 20 cards (also includes envelopes.)

I Am Embracing Technology!

I adore technology and all the wonders it brings into my life--but I am a technological dunce. I dislike reading instructions manuals, and technological advancements usual comes with a long line of instruction manuals in tow. Hence, the blogging culture is well underway and I am just starting my own blog; better late than never! I am hoping to post something about once a week, but I might surprise myself--and my friend Brae--and do it more than that. This is all a bit of a shock to my system, so I will take it SLOW AND EASY for now! Stay tuned for recipes, scrapbooking and stamping ideas, and info about my Close To My Heart activities--upcoming workshops and the like.
Ta ta for now,
