Hi Dear Friends,  I am sorry for being absent for awhile.  I know if one doesnt keep posting we tend to stop looking to see if something has been posted.  Don't give up on me.  We had a very nice Thanksgiving with all the children and their families here to celebrate, all except my son from Indiana.  They will be home at Christmas.  Everyone brings in food to help so the work is light for me.  I needed only to prepare a turkey and stuffing and cranberry salad.  Everything else was provided by family.  We always have too much!  My daughter-in-law  made mashed potatoes from 15 lbs of potatoes.  We do have left over potatos.  Of course when everyone is here and eats with us, we might go through 10 lbs of potatos.  I do hope your day was as special, we all have so much to be Thankful for.  We have been so blessed.  Let us not forget all the blessing big or small that our Lord gives us.  I have also been blessed to meet some special people through the classes at Hobby Lobby.  You all are great and important to me and I miss you when you can't be there.  I Thank you Jesus for bringing us together with our common bond.  Take care and God Bless you!  Laura

Dec 1st Card workshop

I have posted our workshop cards.  Unfortunately I scan them and post them and they don't always show up as pretty as they really look.  The tree card has an intricate embossed tree with a bisque looking background. thanks to my Cuttlebug.  Did I tell you I love that machine?  How many times you say?  The blue card has what they call a waterfall effect.  The white and red card has a vellum snow embossed front.  This class may give you some new ideas to add to your list of techniques.  I was pleased with them, I think you will be too! Have a good day! Laura

Todays Card Workshop

A Big Thank You to all that attended our card workshop today.  You all did a great job on your cards.  I am glad you were happy with them.  We missed all of you who wasn't able to make it today, maybe we will see you next time.  Our next workshop is Dec 1st, we will be making 5 more Christmas cards.  On Dec. 15th we will have a special class for all who have attended.  This will be a special gathering, which I can not talk about, it is a surprise.  I know it will be so close to Christmas and coming will be difficult, but I do hope you will attend.  Hope to see you soon, take care and God Bless you, Laura

Where's the sunshine!

Good Morning, I guess we need to make our own sunshine today.  We have been so spoiled with the beautiful weather we've been having.  It seems strange being home on a Sunday morning.  We went to church last evening.  We had friends who were celebrating their 50th Wedding Anniversay at the 5pm mass last evening.  They had a dinner for guests at the Main Street Cafe on the square afterwards.  They served a great meal.  I am almost ready for our Wed card workshop.  I am not certain who is coming and at what time.  I also need to get working on our cards for the next workshop.  I guess I will be busy today.  Have a great day, take care and God Bless you all.

Library Craft Workshop

I had a fun evening.  I had the opportunity to attend a craft workshop at Crestview Library.  It was free, can't beat that!  It was held by Nancy Dempsey, a friend and a card class student who comes to my Hobby Lobby Card Workshop.   She had us make a Christmas box , using a paper mache' box and had  supplies for us to decorate it with.  It was nice to do something different, met some nice people, and got to see a special lady who played guitar and led us in singing at a retreat I attended years ago.  I have never forgotten the retreat and the special music she shared with  us.    I almost decided I wasn't going but so glad I changed my mind.
