Once again, long time no blog...Susan Keuter was in yesterday and has promised more blog lessons when she gets back from The Big Apple! How exciting to get to go to New York and even more exciting to go with a bunch of scrapbooking women. Have a great time Susan and remember, what happens in New York stays in New York (we hope).

Our store has been very busy. All of the teachers have been coming up with awsome classes. Today Chris Herrmann kept the store buzzing teaching a class using alcohol inks, Memory Glass, and Memory Glass Frames. Sooo much fun! Jennifer and I actually got to sit in on this class. There's a first! Chris does not believe in rules so there were a class full of rebel women all doing their own thing once Chris gave them the basics. We all had such different results.

Our Imagine Takes Flight (ITF) kits have been getting better and better each month. If you don't know what that is here's the jest in a nutshell. We put together a kit, you purchase it for $5.00, take it home, make whatever you want using the contents of the kit and whatever else you want. Bring it back to us, it gets judged (not by us) and the winner gets next months kit free! Again, it is so nice to see how different everybodies entry is. Here are this months entries...

A composition book by Pam Snow

A Treasure can by Emily Holgate that was filled with a delicious treasure of candy!

And a beautiful Heritage Treasure page by Violet Rogers. Violet's page won this month. And you can see, by these beautiful examples, this is why we don't judge. Who could pick? But let's spice this competion up and get alot more entries next month. The kits are ready and waiting for you to pick up, create, and bring back. And, I have to mention that the pictures don't do these entries justice. Please come check them out in person before their owners pick them up. You'll be glad you did. Which one would you have voted for?

Did you get a copy of this month's Legacy magazine? Our teacher, Judy Bidwell was published in it. To get a feel for how photography does not do the layouts justice, stop by the store. We have the magazine and Judy's actual project. You will see how different it is to see the project in person and then to see the photo in print. You can only imagine how gorgeous the things are that we don't get to see in person. Our teacher, Jennifer Wagner has also been published in Creating Keepsakes the last two months. Not to brag, but we do have the best teachers!!

It's great to be back and hopefully you will see a much improved blog format (that's long for fancier) when Susan get back. Have a blast Susan!
