Happy Valentines Day!

Today is a great day for random hugs 🙂

I’ve finally finished making 26 valentine boxes with treat tubes for daughter #3’s Kindergarten class, 34 brownie pops for son #2’s 4rth grade class and 28 valentine cards with treat  cups and candy hearts for daughter #2’s 5th grade class. Son #1 and Daughter #1 are too old for school valentines, thank goodness. Of course they’re never too old to enjoy the valentine treats I made for each of them.  Oh, and I made my DH a Valentine’s Day card too…

All of which explains why I haven’t had time to post the list of Spring Workshops before now. So, now that everything’s done, here they are!

So many awesome paper packets it’s hard to fit them all in during the next 6 months!

Home Decor Workshops

This new catalog includes lots of really fun  new home decor items: chipboard stars and muslin bags, wooden display trays, bracket frames and canvases.  I can’t wait to create with them all!  I’ve put together a series of Home Decor Workshops as well this Spring:

Display Tray



decorated frame

March:  Muslin Bags

April: Display Tray

May: Bracket Frame

June: 6×6 Canvas

The exact time and dates will be arranged among those interested in doing these projects. Look for more information about these workshops in upcoming posts….

Ask me about joining my Spring Hostess Club group as well. Each month the club members agree to order $25 worth of CTMH items and one member gets to claim the hostess awards for the month, which amount to $25 or $40 worth of free products plus a 1/2 price item. During the last 6 months, all 6 of my club members have gotten themselves the Cricut Art Philosophy and Artiste bundles as 1/2 price items for only $49.99 that way. An awesome deal!  We have 5 in the group so far and have space for one more.

So there you have it: the list of Spring Workshops and Classes. They all look like so much fun, I want to do them all at once. I have as much fun creating the workshops and you, hopefully, have doing them!  Hope to see you all here soon….

    Love the canvases. How did you transfer the photos on to the canvas?

      Hey, glad you like them! Photos can be transferred to canvas using an acrylic gel medium from a craft store. The image will be reversed so it may be useful to have it printed in reverse using Photoshop at home, or asking for reverse printing at Staples, etc. They need to be ink jet or laser printed images. HTH….
