Happy Tuesday everyone!  We've had some cold and snowy weather here of late.

I was to have taught two workshops last weekend for Scrapbooks Forever in Branson but Mother Nature had other ideas!  

We ended up postponing the classes until THIS weekend due to icing and snow.

Thankfully, the weather, while still being cold is supposed to be much better this weekend.  But, because we had to make the change, there are a few openings for the classes this weekend.  So, if you're in the Branson, Missouri area and feel like being creative this weekend, give Shirley at call at 
Scrapbooks Forever in Branson - 417 335-7904 and sign up.

On Friday, December 13th, from 9 to 2, we will be making this beautiful Prima Lyrics Book.

Every page has a pocket and several techniques that you will use on all sort of your art projects.

Saturday, December 14th, from 9 - 5, is one of my favorite workshops EVER!

From start to finish, you will completely create a beautiful vintage Christmas wreath.  Learn floral techniques to take a simple plain wreath and inexpensively create a full gorgeous basic lighted wreath that finished out to be approximately 22 inches across.  With the exception of the one blown glass Santa head ornament and the golden bells, you will create all of the other vintage ornaments for you wreath.  You will learn all sorts of fun techniques to recreate that glorious vintage style.  Create a Christmas heirloom that your family will enjoy for years to come! 

I have made wreaths similar to this with just a few friends before and their families say that they are one of their favorite Christmas decorations.

So, if you're looking for a fun way to beat cabin fever, come join us THIS WEEKEND!
