Hello and a Happy Monday to you all! Did you enjoy your weekend? I am hopefully on my way driving home the 10.5 hour drive from Michigan to Virginia today--yikes. Then I will get home and "die" for a few hours so I can get up and be productive on Tuesday, hee hee. I am actually home for a few weeks this time and then gone almost all of June with 3 travel locations for classes (including Vegas me thinks) and then a 2 week beach vacation in Hilton Head, SC. NO groaning please! LOL! I know I just got home from Maui BUT that is not a normal spring break trip for us and because spring break was so late it kinda all got mushed together. We go to SC every summer for 2 weeks and rent the same house on the beach---it is a family-only event (no friends much to my daughter's chagrin, hee hee) and we really relax and enjoy each other. BUT I do work while I'm there LOL but only late evenings so no one gets mad at me. South Carolina will be my home state in a few years---after the kids graduate I have BIG plans to move down there. I like the slower pace of life and the much warmer and milder winters of course--I feel like it was meant for me to live there! So five more years and I will be SC bound for good, LOL!
-New locations of Copic Classes will be up this week on my site www.cmcroad.com to include Ohio and possibly Las Vegas. If you are interested in classes in Ontario in August the registration info is up and I am amazed as usual and thankful but the spots are filling up very quickly so act now, LOL!
-Winners of the last Blog Candy are..................TIARA MOORE, CHRIS CHRISTENSEN and PAM BROWN!! Please email me with your choice of a $25 Gift Certificate to either Magnolia-licious, SCACD or 7 Kids College Fund and congrats to you all!
-Have you subscribed to the mini-magazine "Through the Craftroom Door" I publish with my friend Marti yet? If not go to our site (it is open to everyone to visit) and see what we are all about. IF its handmade then we talk about it, if its new in the craft world then we will probably be chatting about it--so come see us!
-My Magnolia-licious DT sister Mindy Baxter NOW has a class at the CMC Classroom featuring only Magnolia stamps, copic instruction and how to mask and create scenes. You can register HERE and class invites will be sent out this Thursday!
**Blog Candy Below for you!!**
HERE! If you have never visited the Scor-Pal Project website, you are in for a treat--100's of great projects that you can make with your Scor-Pal. I use my Scor-Pal everyday and work right on top of the mat each day as well---to me it is one of my top 10 must haves :) I used the same papers for my purse and embellished it in the same manner as my card. To keep the purse flap closed I used a Basic Grey large magnet which I keep stocked in my craftroom at all times! This purse would be a great way to give a small gift to your bride or flower girl to thank them. Very easy to make and so fun too!
Blog Candy for U: Now to thank you for stopping by and always leaving such wonderful comments, I am giving away 3 Magnolia stamps of your choice from Magnolia-licious along with a pad of this fabulous Basic Grey paper. Just tell me (cuz' I'm curious and nosy and love a great story, lol) --
