Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
to all my friends, new and old,
We'll join to create a delightful, frilly, fun Valentine banner for your home or your Valentine! Our banner will read “je t’aime,” which means “I love you” in French. There are 2 groups you can pick to sign up for, one is a standing banner for a bookshelf or mantle or elsewhere, the other is a hanging banner.
If you would like to be a part of this super fun project, sign up at the Pink Pineapple and I'll see you January 5th for our meet and greet.
Important dates to note:
January 5th at 6:00 p.m. for our 20 minute meet and greet and to shop for supplies.
January 19th: all work due by close of business today
January 26th: revealing party at 6:00 p.m. until 7:00
Hope you can join us!
I am so happy with the way it turned out and so was everyone else! Next up is a Sweet Valentine's Swap. Stay tuned to the Pink Pineapple for more details!
I figured out how to put my Twinchies up from the Advent Calender Twinchie Swap at the Silver Bella. You know, you just can't leave good art laying around! I hung them with tiny binder clips on a shimmery green cord and hung the cord like a small garland over a large mirror. Very nice!
Here are the 12 days of Christmas books all packaged up and ready for delivery at the cookie and hot cocoa revealing party at "The Pink." They came out just lovely and the girls were all so wonderful! I will post a picture of the completed book with a group picture as soon as I can get my hot little hands on it.
Here is a photo of my little model with the banner I taught at the Holiday Hoopla. We all had such a good time today!
And finally, a picture of the wonderful group of girls I got to work with today Leah Fung, Candice McLean, Teri Rogers, Krystie Whillock, Me and Michelle Hill (Stephanie Ackerman, what a doll, was there too, we just missed her for the group shot.)

Secondly, I am excited about teaching new classes at our very sweet local store the Pink Pineapple! You can check out all the goodness at their site to the left of my blog. Super cute store and really nice people! I am fortunate to have such an opportunity as this and love to work with even more crafty and creative minds!!! I am a lucky girl indeed!
More later after the big event!!!
I cannot even express the thought that is put into this artwork and then the packaging of all the girls participating in this! The day of the "big reveal" is just too far away for me! I want to see it now!
More news is that I am getting ready to teach a class at a local Scrapbook Store!!! I am so excited about this new little avenue. The store is called "The Pink Pineapple" and the girls there are all so nice and welcoming, they make me feel right at home. We are going to do a Thanksgiving book full of vintage goodness. Here is a sneak peek at the back:
oh what fun this little class will be! I have to sign off for now, someone has to go check the mailbox for more goodies!
Please say an extra little prayer for our firefighters fighting this and all those fires out there.
