Let’s talk Twelve.

I’ve been fighting a cold for exactly one week and as you might imagine, I have with the exception of regular doses of Alka Seltzer Cold Plus, completely ignored it and pushed ahead in my pursuit of Christmas preparations.

Addie and her hat box!

We had a WONDERFUL Chrismtas Day—filled with delicious food, fun gifts, worship and family time and then more celebrating with good friends last night. We ate more, talked and talked, played games and then all watched one of Chase’s new movies, Captain America. After everyone left, Geoff and I sat down to unwind with our puzzle. The next thing we knew it was 1:00am. Since I went to bed on Christmas Eve at 1:30am and woke myself up at 5:30am (I always wake up well before the kids wake up!) I decided to sleep in this morning. I completely missed Geoff getting up to play basketball with his buddies and Clark/Trey leaving to go snowboarding. Addie came and sat in my bed and played and whispered on and on with her new Tangled doll—and I kept right on sleeping! I’m up now and realizing just how messy everything is and just how OK I am with the mess. It’s evidence of yesterday’s abundance. I think I’ll go read for a little bit and then start in one corner and work my way through!

I do want to begin talking a little bit about my NEW (classroom opens January 1st) class, Twelve. Because this is a really expensive class, I feel obliged to begin by explaining a few things that might not be super clear in my class description. I want to do my best to explain YOUR potential investment …

Custom Journals by Paper Coterie!


While this class is billed as a 3-month 4Experts class, it REALLY is a year-long experience. We’ll spend the first 12 weeks setting ourselves up for 52 weeks of inspired scrapbooking which will result in (potentially) 12 layouts/projects each month.


Registration includes a special snail-mail package with some really COOL items (including the beautiful journal you see pictured above) that each have a specific purpose in the creative process I will be teaching!


You will receive 24 emails each month (January through December) AND we’ll celebrate “Dozen Day” on the 12th of each month, when the classroom will be updated with a new handout and a slide show of my 12 pages/projects. Our “Dozen Day” next December (on 12.12.12.) will actually be an online event–as in BIG celebration–of all that we have accomplished.

You need not worry about the amount of content this class includes. Trust me, I will be keeping you inspired and busy ALL YEAR!

OK, this is the briefest of overviews …
I’d LOVE to answer any specific questions you might have.
Please leave them in the comments and I’ll be back tomorrow with answers.

ALSO … I was a guest on the Paperclipping Roundtable a few weeks back and did a pretty good job of explaining my class at the end of the hour. If you haven’t listened to this podcast, you might want to have a listen! Here’s the LINK: http://www.paperclipping.com/prt092-the-two-page-layout-show/

Happy Monday!
