ok where did the last two weeks go? I have tons of fun stuff to report, which I will hopefully get to very soon, but I just have to say two quick things:
one. I just finished reviewing the completed classroom for our new Shadowbox Shoes class and it’s so cool. I’ve done one shadowbox (pictured in my book) but Stephanie does really cool stuff, where she combines family heirlooms with scrapbook stuff to create beautiful displays for her walls. It’s just got me really inspired for my new house — wheels are turning over here. We have a bunch of classes launching tomorrow — all good stuff.
two. Got this email a day or two ago and just have to share it. It’s from Jenna, in my Library of Memories class:
I have always had these great page ideas floating around in my head. You
know the type … "Bad Hair Days Through the Years" or whatever… & I have
not been able to find the pictures (stored in boxes in the closet). A few
weeks ago, Holly Ashby had a contest on the Fiskateers web page. I was able
to find pictures of myself in babyhood, elementary school, high school,
dating, college, etc. It took me less than 20 minutes to come up with all of
I AM NOT an organized person in most other areas of my life, but the Library
of Memories class has really helped me get my act together & 90% of my
pictures out of boxes.
My pages-in-progress binder is actually two full-sized scrapbooks bursting
with partially-completed layouts. But now when I need to have something to
work on, I can flip through the book & find something that I’m in the mood
to finish. Yesterday, I completed three layouts that were four years old!
Ok, Jenna fails to mention that she actually won Holly’s Fiskateer’s contest – how cool is that?
Just wanted to share the good news and a link, so you to go check it out!
Last day of summer btw — I might be just a little excited about this! Pics from our adventures the last two weeks coming soon.
