Summer Treasures

Well, my first class at The Paper Niche is done and I had so much fun making my Summer Treasures box with the ladies who came out to support me.

Holly (AKA: Mom), Lynn and Marilyn came to my first class and we explored new great new ideas together.

Karen and I had fun during my second class (Happy Birthday, Karen!)

Thank you Ladies for starting my journey with me! My favorite thing about teaching is the opportunity to learn from my students, as well as meeting wonderful people - I hope to see you soon!

It's official - we're finally homeowners!

A big day - Scott and I bought our first house! We're so excited, but not looking forward to the moving and packing. But getting to paint my very own art room whatever color I want is certainly worth it. :) We are so lucky - it's the perfect first house.

Of course, I couldn't let the special occasion go by without a card for my hubby. I'm still loving the July kit from The Paper Niche - it's called Cherry Pie. It was a great match!

Croppin' at the Niche

I had so much fun at last night's crop. I met many of the crop "regulars" and enjoyed hangin' with Beatriz, Christina, Jessica, Marilyn, Jill, Mavan and Carole. I even won a door prize! (Will wonders never cease?!) The only bummer was saying goodbye to Beatriz. She's such a sweetie and totally made me feel comfortable as the "new kid on the block". I wish her lots of love and good luck (but she's such an angel, that shouldn't be a problem for her). This is me and her at her Fall For You class.

I'm working on a mini-album for a Stamping 101 class - should have some pictures up soon! I had to resist buying out the whole store - all the cute stuff from CHA is coming in and it's all yummy! I couldn't pass up a few Jennie Bowlin goodies, though.... :)

Alright - here we go - I've arrived in the world of blogging! I never would have guessed I'd be doing this, but i'll be giving it a try. I hope you enjoy a glimpse into my world. :)
