This coming Tuesday I get another basket of goodness from MogoOrganic. I know that you are not as excited as I am, but I wonder if you are just a teensy bit curious. Or jealous.
I took a class today. It was held at From the Heart in Fairfield, IA. Such a sweet little scrapbooking store! So much paper goodness and always a sale! We learned a bunch of ways to make flowers from paper. Some turned out well, some, well, let's just say the I need to practice the technique. Who knew you could make a flower from 3 paper coin wrappers? Gosh, I really hope that bag of wrappers I found in the basement hasn't already been taken to Goodwill! What was I thinking? The class was taught by the fabulous, talented, published, amazing Lynn Warner. She ROCKS the paper world! And now she's designing for Sizzix!! Right up there with the Big Dogs! Wowza! She's on design teams, teaches classes all over the northern hemisphere (okay, maybe it's just the U.S.A.), designs stamps and I think she may even have a photography business.
Now I want to take more classes. I went through this phase a few months ago, but gave up because I couldn't find anything in the area to take. I want to take a class on how to use my camera. I don't want to read the manual. I just want someone to walk me through the steps. That's how I learn. I want to learn how to use PhotoShop, too. I also would like to take some bartending classes. Not that I have any desire to be a bartender. Let's face it, I'm waaaayyyyy to short to reach the glasses that hang from overhead! (You'd like a martini? Excellent! If you'd just step around to my side of the bar and get your glass down for me, I'll have that fixed up in just a jiffy!)
I went to a wedding last night. Everything was beautiful. The bride looked amazing. The candles were EVERYWHERE --- soooo cool! But the best part? They played the theme song from the Andy Griffith show to walk out of the church after the "I present you Mr. and Mrs........" Unexpected and TOTALLY COOL!!!!
I scraplifted a card from the PaperCrafts July/Aug. issue. I have a tendency to make my cards too detailed, too fussy. This is simple and I like it. The glittery flowered paper is from Target's Dollar Spot, the word "cherish" is a rub-on" and the glittery card stock (DWV) flower was cut with my Sizzix machine. Matching ribbon was also from Target.
Okay, so I warned you at the beginning that this post would be filled with randomness! Thanks for stopping by and leave a random comment, if you wish.
