What a wonderful mid-west summer we are having – that is unless you love HOT HOT HOT weather.  These temperatures in the 70’s and 80’s are fine for me!  I am having an interesting summer.  My 96 year-old Mother arrived on July 4th and is staying until August 30th.  We are having some great times together.  I am continuing to take paper crafting classes to “expand my horizons.”  Went to a Christmas Tag class and all the products used were from Tim Holtz (Ranger brand).  I was quite inked up by the end of the class (nails, arms, hands, etc.)  I continue to enjoy the Dream Weaver projects, and I love Iris Folding.  Iris Folding is similar to paint by number – but you tape by number instead. 

The Holiday Catalogue is very exciting.  I believe the catalogs will be send out on August 1st so check your mail carefully – although it is quite a large mailing and I doubt if you could miss it!

Our August Stamp Camp is right around the corner – Thursday, August 7th (2 – 9 PM), Friday, August 8th (2 – 9 PM), and Saturday, August 9th (9 AM – 4 PM).   Come when it is convenient for you.  All materials and tools are provided and the cost remains at $12.00.  I am just starting the August blogs, but wanted to give you an early sneak peek.  You will have the opportunity to work with the new Stampin’ Up Blendabilities markers.  We will also be creating a button garden, will make a very elegant masculine card as well as a cute coffee cup card.  Here’s your sneak peek:
