Bus Tour Photos

It only took a week, but I finally have some photos from the bus tour to share; Thanks to my mom (aka Grammy or Lu). She was able to get some great shots. Which is wonderful since I was so busy doing other things I never thought about it.
First up is our Driver Phil, What a great guy. We ask for him every year.

Next are our Raffle Prize winners:




and Meghan

Congratulations, Ladies! And thank you everyone for a great day!

Wonderful day

We had a wonderful day on Saturday with Kelly Jo and the lovely Fiskateers. We spent the whole day crafting and laughing. We even had an unexpected visitor. Loralie Harris, the designer of Loralie stamps was in the area for a quilting show and stopped by to see if I would be interested in seeing her new stamp designs. As soon as I saw her AMAZING purse made with scrapbook papers, tulle netting and her fabulous, "Lovely Ladies" stamp design I knew I had to introduced her to the Fiskateers. They went crazy for her stamp designs! Well, of course, I had to order them. So we sent Loralie upstairs with my mom to have lunch while we put together an order! Loralie graciously left us some sample stamps so we could start to play with them. Donna scooped up two of them already and I was able to hang on to one. I hope to get some pictures up soon. I'm sure you'll love them as much as we do.

Another Magenta Cat image

This stamp is now officially retired. It was released in March of 2009 and was limited for one year. We still have 1 or 2 in stock if you want to get it before it's gone.

Upcoming Event at The Inspiration Station

What a crazy week. It went by so fast. I am still trying to pull it all together, but we have added a number of things to our calendar and I want to get as much info out as possible so you can make plans.

First off, Dawn still has spots in Wednesday's Scrap More Cards & Layouts class. Please call Monday to sign up.

Donna's Card Club classes for April feature a beautiful cling stamp from Stampendous that is a trio of bird cages. Very pretty. The Card Club classes are a fantastic value- you create 4 stunning, detailed cards and you get to take home the featured stamp to create even more at home. This class is extremely popular so we offer it five times a month- 2 morning classes and 3 evening classes. Everyone loves it because nobody makes cards like Donna!

We've had a lot of interest in the canvases that we made in our Tim Holtz/Jennifer McGuire workshop, so Donna & I are going run our own Tag Team Chaos class inspired by them. It will be a jam-packed class with lots of techniques. Because there is so much to learn, we are offering the class on a Sunday afternoon - May 30 - from noon to 4 pm. Yes! Four hours of inspiring chaos taught tag-team style. This is going to be so much fun. Space is limited to the first 10 people to register. Price is still to be determined based on the cost of the canvases but we expect it to be in the $55-$60 range which is an amazing deal for a four hour class. Be prepared to be inspired!

Our Fiskateer Crop with Kelly Jo next Saturday is SOLD OUT, but you can sign up now for a 12 hour crop on National Scrapbook Day (May 1st). Many places are offering an entire weekend to crop but we feel realistically, most of us can't get away from our family responsibilities for that long so we are offered a lower cost (in terms of price and guilt) option. Come and crop from 10am-10pm for only $25 per person and we'll provide lunch and dinner!

If you are still anxious to create the next day, I will be teaching Scraplifting 101 on Sunday, May 2 from 1pm - 3pm. In this class, we will complete 2 single page layouts in class and you will have left over materials to create matching second pages using the techniques you’ve learned in class.

Also coming up in May is our Customer Tag Sale. Mark you calendars for Sunday, May 16th.

But wait... there's more! There are a bunch more classes available and we have the Bus Tour happening April 18th. Yikes! I better get busy, I have a lot to do to get ready!
