I spend quite a bit of time online. In doing so, I don't just look at the same websites and blogs every day. Instead, I love to stretch my knowledge and experiences. So, I've decided to share my journey with each of you every Tuesday. Hence, "Tootin' Tuesday"; the day of the week that I will be tooting my horn for someone elses website or blog.
Today, I'm "tooting" for www.katydid-designs.com. Laura Bray is the author of this beauty. I have had the pleasure of getting to know Laura the past few weeks while taking one of her online e-courses. All I can say is WOW! Laura really knows her stuff! If you are ever in need of one of Laura's classes, I can tell you firsthand that Laura is an awesome professional! She doesn't just take your money and toss you a to-do list. She truly puts a lot of thought and care into her program, and I can see why her customers keep coming back for more. So, expand your horizons and visit Laura's website to see what I'm talking about:D
That's right! I'm back with a doosie of a hangover:D Yesterday was my nieces 4th Birthday, and my sister held the party at a local bowling alley. Fun! So...CUTENESS ALERT!
Of course, the Dairy Queen Ice Cream cake featured the "Princesses".
Isn't she pretty?!
I think she sang with us:D
I thought this was precious, the way she held her dad's face for the picture;)
My sister, Lori, gave us a list of what Sydney wanted for her birthday. Since she knows how I love to make her projects, she requested large letters for her bedroom wall. So, here is what I came up with.
I bought white wooden ones at Joann's and got out the good-old Modge Podge.
I also couldn't resist getting her one of my favorite books...
Guess what! It's Thursday and I wish it was Friday! So, time for some blog candy! Become a follower of my blog and you are automatically entered to win a copy of my book "Say What" a cardmaker's sentiment resource. Don't think you need this resource? Well, I beg to differ. Following are a couple cards made with this book.
Have you noticed the evolution? The one where big companies are downsizing, people are losing their jobs, security and retirement savings. The evolution I'm talking about is the one where people are tired of being loyal to corporate America so they are fighting back by taking their destiny into their own hands. They are doing so by finding new ways to earn a living. So, what does this mean to the crafting industry? Plenty! It is my opinion that in these difficult economic times, Americans are going to learn how to be more creative with their earning abilities. And, being creative is ALWAYS a good thing:D
Welcome to my new blog and the next phase of my altered life journey! Whether you followed me on my previous blog, 'Muktowne Craft Room', or are new to visiting me, I hope you enjoy the papercrafting and altered art inspiration I am going to bring you. My blog is big on pictures of my own work and light on the conversation. So, if there is something you would like further explanation on, please don't hesitate to email me or leave me a comment. I check my blog daily and try to post daily. So, for today's business, I have an altered canvas class to show you samples of and invite you to participate in. The class will be held in Mukwonago, Wisconsin (my home town), this Thursday, Sept. 24th at 6:30 p.m. If you don't live in the area and are still interested in learning all of the techniques I will be teaching during this class, let me know. If there is enough interest I will put together an online tutorial. That being said, if you are interested in attending my class this week, please contact me so that I can be sure to have enough supplies:)
