August first ???

What happened to July? I remember the 4th...I remember CHA...but...what happened to the rest of those July days?? PHEW.....gone in a flash...

Sorry for not posting the last few days. I've been busy. REALLY...Scheduling classes, typing class instrucions, getting class supplies ordered...sending supply info to stores...and talking to store owners on the phone. I think I NEED a secretary. Anyway...enough whining for today.

I talked to Michelle (Mrs. Stampers Anonymous) yesterday & we have a plan for something VERY fun. We think you'll love it. Can't say more yet...but this is something you've asked for & we REALLY want to do.'s been added to the to-do list. This will be fun...guaranteed. More info, just as soon as I can...

We also talked about the second studio 490 stamp release...That's been added to the to-do list too. The first has turned out to be a big hit. THANK YOU so much!! I'm THRILLED!! This has been a great adventure. I already have some ideas for the second set...

She didn't have the cost of the acrylic covers just yet, but as soon as she has the info, I'll let you know.

And yes...they will be available thru the Stamper's Anonymous site and at your LSS too.

Now for some art...

Here are 2 more pages from the Garden Journal that I showed a few weeks ago... This was a Maya Road CHA project...

I LOVE the border at the top of the pages. It's from Maya's their new chipboard sheets. They're 6 x 12 and there are 4 different styles to choose from. This one is from the "borders" set...& it has 6 cool borders included. They are just right for layouts, cards & mini books. Another must have is the petals & leaves sheet. As soon as I get a sample made...I'll show you how much fun that one is too.
Add some Maya Road chipboard letters...some studio 490 stamps and a little grungeboard... done.
This arting is fun stuff.
And speaking of fun...check this out. Suze started a blog...FINALLY. She writes just as funny as she talks. Imagine that!
Have a GREAT fun weekend!
Make ART!

Good Morning Wendy. I can't believe it is August 1st. July was much too short and I didn't get everything I wanted completed, completed!

I love your garden journal. My only hope is to learn from the Master...YOU...if I'm even going to think of being able to move my art in this direction. You are a great talent.
