something new... something BOO!

after much deliberation, I am going to try something new

it is small, simple and sweet. 

nothing huge

but something fun.

I will be offering a small class,

a get together

at my home,

in my little embrace your bliss studio

for a tiny group of crafters.

if you are interested,

shoot me an email. 

the gist:

Grab a friend or two and spend the day with us Saturday October 30th in Oceanside at a private class at my own little slice of heaven, the embrace your bliss studio where we will be creating the perfect Halloween memento. I only have a few spots available that are open to the public for this exclusive class. You will not be able to find it anywhere else and it will only be taught once.

In our class we will make a five page (10 back and front) chipboard book jammed packed with goodness and featuring your little Halloween witches, ghosts, ghouls and goblins at their Halloween best.

A delicious lunch will be served, techniques will be taught, and lasting friendships will be made.

All supplies for this one of a kind kit will be given to you at the class, you only need your basic tool kit and pop-dots (I have some to share if you need them :O)

Optional items: if you like a distressed look, bring a sanding block or dremmel
(I use a dremmel... love my dremmel!)

10:00-10:15 guests arrival, mingling and “finding your seat”
10:15-12:00 class and loads of fun
12:00-12:30 yummy little lunch (served by me)
12:30-3:00 second half of class and more fun
 This workshop is for adults 18 and older.

The cost is $35 and payment for classes are to be made through paypal. If you send me an email, I can send you an invoice.

Once you sign up, I will send you the class address and if you have any dietary concerns, we can address those then, I want you to be happy and comfortable.

** I do have a couple of kits or completed books for sale too, they are $28.50 each.
Email me with questions or for additional photos.

1,000 paper cranes

What would you do

if you found one of these?

Recently, I was contacted by this creative soul Sandy who has masterminded a wonderfully fun and positive idea.

After reading the true story of Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes by Elanor Coerr, Sandy was inspired.  She is attempting to make 1000 paper cranes, putting a different positive word on each of them, and then placing them all in different locations out and about in our world. She has included her blog address so that people can go there and write to her about where they found it and maybe share about how finding it affected them.  A picture of each crane with its word are on her blog daily in addition to a picture of the crane in its location.  Most of her cranes are in New Jersey, but I think it would be cool to contact her and see about sending them all over the states and further. 

What a sweet, peaceful idea.  I love stuff like this, reaching out to random others with happy messages of care, love and peace. 

Have a happy peaceful day, full of love!
