Taught a class recently at Scrapbook Pantry and the inspiration came from my new book 'Iris Folding for Christmas'. The ladies did three projects and they relayed that they enjoyed it and felt comfortable after completing the projects in using the techniques at home. It was nice as it was a process that allowed the ladies to have some conversation and relaxation.
Some have asked about my first book. Which the cover is pictured here. It is presently out of print however I do have a few copies available for sale. the techniques in this book used rubber stamps and a technique I call free style fibre or thread bead technique in which you use double sided tape sheets, metal thread, micro beads and embossing powder.
Also, check out the latest issue of Cardmaker Magazine I have three Christmas theme projects in the issue. Greeting Card, Gift Card Holder and a Bottle Tag. Well that's it for this one - hope to get some creative inspiration up for you this week. Have a great one!Creatively Yours,

My next class is scheduled for March 26th at Scrapbook Pantry and it will be based on an Easter theme. Now some catching up to do with projects that were booked at CHA for a magazine club called Today's Creative Home Arts and Cardmaker Magazine.
The other exciting news is that City TV - Breakfast TV used the Scrapbook Pantry for their Live on Location shoot on February 9th from 6 am to 10 am. The theme of the day - Valentine's. The location shoot was arranged through Allison Orthner in conjunction with her regular monthly scrapbooking feature on BT. Thanks Allison! There were several demonstrations throughout the morning that included myself, Nancy & Krista from Scrapbook Pantry, Allison Orthner and Kristy from Monday Night Class. Jill was our host and Rob our camera man (AV expert). Thanks Jill & Rob you made it all go very smoothly for us.

Recently, returned from CHA our big Craft & Hobby trade show and education session held in Anaheim. This is a huge show for manufacturer's and buyers. As expected the show floor seemed a little quieter than in past years but there was still plenty of creative inspiration. I hope that all involved had a successful show - a great deal of work and money goes into producing this show, exhibiting and/or attending this show. Applause to all of you at CHA and the many volunteers!
Along with Creative Inspiration there were also celebrities such as Paris Hilton, Jane Seymour, Vanna White and Debra Norville. Jane Seymour stopped by the booth that I was conducting a make and take at (Daily Window a line of beautiful bags with windows to slip art work of any medium into) unfortunately it was the day I wasn't there instead I was doing a webisode for When Creativity Knocks and Cardmaker magazine. I will be sure to post when it will be released we were doing a card from the March issue. I was told that it went well - so we will see.
More CHA tidbits on my next post. Have to pace myself you know. Have a great day.
