Hello my blogging friends!

Today I am excited to share a bit of news with everyone who signed up for my classes in December that had to be postponed TWICE due to the wintery weather.

Those classes for Scrapbooks Forever in Branson, Missouri have been rescheduled in what will hopefully NOT be snowy weather!  However, if you remember, we DID get some snow here in early May last year!  Please, Mother Nature ... cooperate with us this time!

~ The Lyrics Book Class ~

(Just one spread of several pocket pages that are in this book & will be taught in the class.)

This technique rich class will taught on Friday, May 2nd from 12 - 4.  At the moment, this class is full but you can always call Scrapbooks Forever at (417) 335-7904 and put your name on a waiting list.  I so love these papers and can't wait to share little tips and tricks for getting the most out of every sheet of 12 x 12 paper to create wonderful little books like this.

~ The Vintage Christmas Wreath Class ~

 I adore Christmas and I adore vintage pieces.  So, this class is sure to be a favorite of mine! The Vintage Christmas Wreath Class is an all day workshop.  We will explore floral techniques for creating a fuller more beautiful basic wreath. Almost every vintage ornament on this wreath is hand made using a combination of several techniques, Distress Inks, mixed media products, Kaisercraft's beautiful Christmas papers, Stickles, and other items reminiscent of vintage Christmas pieces. At the end of the class, you will have created a gorgeous vintage Christmas wreath that is sure to become a family favorite as you proudly display your labor of love in your home each Christmas.  This is a lighted wreath that measures approximately 22" across.

This class will be taught on Saturday, May 3rd from 9 - 5, with a short break for lunch.
 There are only a few spots available for this workshop.  Be sure to call Scrapbooks Forever today for more information and to reserve your spot!  

I hope that everyone is having a wonderful Spring so far. I am enjoying the sweet songs of the birds who have returned with the warmth of the April sun. Take time to look around you and celebrate the rebirth of nature. We are so blessed!
