I'm feeling a little bummed today because I've put up some photos that are below par. Can't re-do them though...darn.  So I'm taking some good advice from some ladies at class yesterday and hope that I can represent the cards better in the hopes of adequately advertising for classes.  I framed this card with a matching color to help it stand out a little...but unfortunately the card is already at Destination Marysville and I won't be able to take any more photos just now.  I'm seriously thinking about going to Troy and redoing the Long Stampscapes cards.  They look a little boring don't they?  They did not photo well at all.  Sigh....I'm going to consider that for a bit today and make a decision later.

Who knew that blogging and teaching would require so many new skills?  I hope this counts towards those brain exercises they say you should do so you can still think clearly when you get older!!! If I learn to work my website will that make me smart???  Please....pretty please....!

I was so pleased when I was able to explore this "business size" idea for Stampscapes.  Mostly because I was chicken that I wouldn't be able to achieve a simple/elegant solution.  Today I'm blogging and turning my head over to the side where my worktable is and hoping against hope that I will have success coming up with a great idea for a Stampscapes Getaway.  The Getaway cards need to push the envelope to keep the interest of the very talented ladies that I hope will attend the class.  I love a simple card...but a 6 hour class demands more.  More techniques, more visual complexity...basically a "headache" card.  I feel a big headache coming on.  3 days and the mojo has not sparked.  2 or 3 ideas have fallen behind me in a ashen heap...sigh.
This is usually the point where family and friends start suggesting ideas and offer help...but that elusive thing in my head is not giving up the goods!  darn it....I even tried a bath yesterday...all I got was wrinkly skin!

Hedgehog Happiness - Card #1






Time to take a break from Stampscapes and slip in a hedgehog! Let's all go outside right now and lounge around like he is!!....darn...it's raining!  It's also the time of year that if you did lounge outside all you would see is all the things you need to do to tidy up the yard.  Squeezing your eyes shut really tight and pretending, doesn't really work!...it's all still there in the morning!

So...you know how the Post Office wants to overcharge you for having a square card??!!  That's just wrong!
Drives me nutty!  How come business mail doesn't get charged more?  Who's bringing the old fashioned, snail mail and traditional communication back into existence?  Card Makers!!  That's us!! Traditionalists!  You might even call us the Renaissance Card Maker.  The Profound and Classic Conveyor!

I say - "let's take back the mail system and claim business size envelopes as ours!!"
You heard it here folks!

Picture me typing in slow motion since my fingers are frozen! (creaking, squeaking...interesting weather...) I'm seriously debating whether I should burn some wood in the fireplace right now....nope...I'll get dirty and won't be able to make cards!  You can use that excuse for anything right??  Nope...can't clean the kitchen, I'll have to wash my hands before I make cards.  Nope...can't rake leaves from last year...I'll get grubby and I won't be able to make cards...

It's the 18th!!!  I haven't blogged since the 18th!!  :(  What happened to April any way?  Maybe I think it's March because it's SNOWING outside!!  I'm going to use a snow machine to drive to my next class!  Strap a box on the back and let Taco my dog come along for the ride...yeah...it has potential! The sentiment on the card isn't an accident!

I always have fun teaching classes - but yesterday, I have to say, I had a blast!  I was over at Shannon's from Remember When Scrapbooking with a bunch of neat ladies where a 2 hour class morphed into 4 plus hours because we spent a large portion of the time cackling like chickens over what seemed extremely hilarious at the moment!   I had tears coming out of my eyes at one point ... I was laughing so hard.  It was awesome!  Even if I could remember exactly what was so funny - I'm sure it wouldn't translate enough to make anyone chuckle.  It was just one of those great moments in time! Thanks you guys!! (okay - they were ladies...just an expression...sheesh!)

PRINTABLE: RW336_1


In an effort to Not Do another Copic Class using flowers....I turned to these sweet little Asian Style Dolls from Hero Arts...which brought on another creative belch problem that stymied me for a couple of days.  (I'm always coming up with these amazing reasons why I can't get my cards done in a timely fashion!).  Should Copic Classes include intense sessions in conquering various techniques???  I grappled with that thought for a bit and decided that I had no Art Major Degree nor 400 classes taken to equal one - so I had no business saying that I possessed enough technique to actually share!!!  Once I figured that out...I'm pretty sure that any value I offer would be making some classes that people could attend and have a great time together...both as friends and collaborators in Card Making!  Whew!....Belch...I now feel justified and righteous in making that statement.  Of course... having said that...no-one can actually peg me as saying that I know what I am doing!  What a relief!!!
