Come join my class

My countdown calendar class at [url][/url] will be closing soon with the class starting on Monday. You don't need a particular kit for this one.

For those who haven't checked out the format of MCC, the classes are online, but are not like most where you have to be online at a particular time. Sections will be revealed one at a time and you simply jump online and complete each part when it suits you. Gotta love the kind of flexibility.

The calendar is built on chipboard pieces for strength and you have the option to add ribbon to the top to hang it on a wall. Here's a pic:

Go here to see the info: then look down the left side for Organisation and you can get to the description from there. I think that you might have to register for the site to be able to see it, but it's free and there is no obligation.

If you happen to be a member of any of my DT forums, check out a post on the board for a special deal.

CHA layouts

Not only was Laura lucky enough to go to CHA last week, AND win a bunch of very cool Making Memories prizes, but she took the time to take a picture of my layouts at The Crafters Workshop booth in case I wanted to see. Here's my little piece of fame for the year. Thanks Laura:)

Photography blog

I have started doing some online photography classes in an attempt to learn to use our camera properly. I have also started doing a couple of photography challenges over at 2peas, so I have set up another blog just for my photos. Feel free to check it out, but please remember that as far as photography and photo editing are concerned, I am very much a beginner, so please be nice:)

Have a look here:

The elusive smile

Cameron has been smiling for quite a while now, but it's been really tricky catching it with the camera. This is the closest I have gotten so far, plus another one that turned out to be a pretty nice photo. Of course, the smile is cuter than that really. Will keep trying to get better photos.

Here are also some layouts I have done with the Feb kit from

2CC February kit.

As always 2CC did an awesome kit for February. Here's what I did with it:

I also made the altered gameboard with this kit for my MCC class. So the idea is to go to and sign up for my class, then go to and get the kit. You would want to be quick though, as the kits often sell out. In addition any 2CC board members who sign up for the class go in the running for a $15 gift voucher generously donated by the cousinz.

Don't forget that 2CC also have their DT call for 2008 open at the moment, but entries have to be in by Feb 6th.

Tomorrow night I am hosting an online chat at MCC, so please come over and say Hi.I think it is 8pm EST

That's it for today, but tomorrow I will be posting some layouts that are going on display at CHA with the new Crafters Workshop templates.
