Happy Monday.....

Hope everyone had a GREAT weekend!!!!!

While I didn't get any scrapbooking done this weekend, I did manage to clear up some other projects, plan some future ones, and even develop some thoughts about others.  What I would call a very productive day, yesterday.

Do you have plans for World Cardmaking Day coming up?  I have a few other things I have to get done, but hope to sneak in some card making, as well!!!!

Catch Up Post

Okay, a lot has been going on and I've not had much time to post.  I apologize.

Some family issues and lots of visiting has been fun but had kept me hopping and very busy.

A small water leak in the basement (luckily my craft room escaped pretty much unscathed) meant clearing everything out of the closet, ripping up carpet, digging up the front garden, my wonderful hubby working to find the problem, and fix it.  (Great job, 'hon).

Busy, busy but all is back on track and since the closet is now ripped apart, we will redesign and make it a better and more useable space.

Went to a Scrapbooking Garage Sale last weekend and got some GREAT deals.  Working to get my scrapbooking space all organized and functional..... watch for updated photos soon.

The Weekend Retreat is coming up in 7 weeks, and we still have a few seats to fill.  Let me know if you're interested.  There's more information available on the "Retreat Information" tab, or send me an email ( with any questions.  I'm working away on some dates for 2011!!!!

World Card Making Day on Saturday, October 2nd

Paper Crafts magazine celebrates the connections handmade cards create and kicks off the holiday card-making season. This day is set aside to offer card makers fun and inspiring environments in which to create by providing card ideas, tips, sweepstakes and ways to connect through store events, classes, group activities and/or individual card making. Annually, the first Saturday in October.

Do you have plans?  Will you get together with friends?  Attend a crop or event?

I don't have any plans yet.  Suggestions?
