A few shares and a new Monday's Fun Day!!!

Memories Live On is going to be carrying Copic Markers so I decided it's about time I opened up that gorgeous set of Copic markers that Kevin got me for our anniversary and start getting to know them. I posted a trial effort when I first got them several months ago with the owls. Okay... well here's my first finished card with the markers.


I can not wait to take the certification class! I can't seem to get online with Copic to see their schedule of when/where their next classes are going to be held. Can someone tell me their schedule?

My holiday boutique at the preschool went well. I had many handmade items for sale that sold as the night went on. Here are a couple of samples of what I had on my table:

Peppermint Patty holders:

Nugget holders:


Ready for Monday's Fun Day?

How about some yummy flowers and brads?
Check these out!


I use them all the time for cardmaking and scrapbooking! These flowers are so fun to use!
The brads closely match the colors of the flowers and I love adding glitter to the tops of them for some added dimension.

If you would like to have a chance to receive this and more, just post here what your favorite holiday song is.

Good luck!
Happy Monday, everyone!!

My favorite Christmas song is Silent Night. As the mother of two boys, there was seldom a silent night at our house. But the stillness of the awe of Jesus' birth is truly magnified in this song.

What fun holiday boutique items! So glad it went well! Marianne will be teaching in So. Cal.(LA) before winter CHA... it's a worthwhile class and she goes over a lot of good stuff with the copics. I LOVE christmas music and right now my favorite song is 'Baby It's Cold Outside'! But I like it ALL! :)

love your choice of music on your blog!! I have a lot of favorite Christmas songs so this is hard. Just when I hear one and go "oh this is my favorite" I hear another LOL.... I think maybe Silver Bells because it holds a special meaning to me. when I was in high school, I did the piano music for that song while the chorus sang it. My Mom kept asking me to play it again and again for her.
