1. Yea!  I’m officially back from Vacation. I had so much fun resting, relaxing, cleaning, playing and creating. I can’t show everything because I’m hoping for a publication here and there.

I can show you my ATC that I made for a swap at Scrapbook News and Review. I totally love their ATC swaps. You don’t make over 10 cards. I love that. The theme is things with wings. I stamped the wings in sepia from Ranger on to Mulberry Paper. The effect turned out wonderful.

2. Announcing the new Design Team for Artful Legacy:

Betty Podell: Just Some Table Scraps
Becky Allen: Stamping with Becky
Theresa Forge: Artful Whimsies
Sharon Russell: Okie Stamp Queen
Amanda Brazelton
Jessica Altman: Stamping with Jessica
Debby Lewis
Kathy Robinson: Kathy Pass It On 
Delia Vestal she is the artist for Artful Legacy.

Did you notice a practically familiar name? I know I’m excited. I don’t have to make cards! But I get to show layouts made using stamps. I love my Dream Team.   Thank You, Buck and Christine.  I looking forward to a great time!

3. Let’s take a look at ORANIZING Tips and Helps

These are just a few of my prior to redoing my studio. Amazingly and with blessings I deleted the messiest of the photos.

For me it was too dark and too crowded. I had my windows blocked, things hanging from the ceiling, when I got messy it landed on the flour, a ton of things were under something.  I had to do something soon. The beginning of Studio Makeover starts tomorrow. I have one area I’m still working on. So hopefully by the time I get to that spot we’ll be ready to see it. I keep getting ideas from my favorite organizational book Ask the Masters, Organizing Your Scrapbook Supplies.

4. For a few friends I wanted to let the local folks know about two events happening.
