teaching + book signing

We are safely tucked away in a hotel (below) watching the some rare snow fall. It has been a crazy week but at least the house is on its way to getting fixed. I'm just hoping that we can be back home in time for Christmas. Crossing fingers!



If you live in Houston or surrounding areas this may interest you - I'll be teaching a beginner level paper crafting class at 10:30am tomorrow at SewCrafty. It will be my first time to teach an 'official' craft class and I'm really excited about it. There will also be some Home, Paper, Scissors book signing going on — bring or purchase a copy there. I hope to meet some of you in the morning!

Have a great weekend everyone!



One of the two projects we'll be working on in class.

  3. This is so crazy that I found your blog! I say crazy because I'm trying to mastermy Xacto knife and had a similar idea to creating this dual image thing. I love what you do with the trees and your framed cut-out in your gallery I believe. I did a similiar one with florals (wish I had pics to post, another thing I need to master, lol). Anywho, just wanted to drop in and say you are very masterful with a blade. :-) What type of paper do you find best to work with. I've been using a textured cardstock which is nice, but I just want something with a little more firmness.

  4. Thanks Amy! :)

    Mefi - Looking forward to meeting you!

    Steph - Welcome and thank you so much for your kind words. I typically work with card stock (like the one used in scrapbooking or thicker) and bristol paper.

  6. Have fun with the class today. Wish I could be there... And good luck with the house revamping. It is never fun when you are in the middle of it - but it will be worth it when its done!
