A Sneak Peek, fantastic news, MFD winner, and a new Monday's Fun Day!

Brrrr! It's getting a bit chilly outside! It's official. We have snow in the mountains of Saratoga, Los Gatos, and Santa Cruz! Oh, I know... not as cold as some parts of the world. But this is Northern California! lol!

I've been working on the cards for my January class at Memories Live On. Here's a sneak peek of the images we will be working with!




Remember to save the date! January 10th, 1pm - 3pm!
I teach at Memories Live On every second Saturday of the month!
The cards for the next class will be posted here tomorrow so stay tuned!

I have last week's Monday's Fun Day Winner to announce!

Love your card and peppermint patty holders! Are you liking your copics?


To answer your question about the copics...
YES!! I LOVE my Copics! As a matter of fact, when Memories Live On got their initial shipment in last week, I happened to get there before the markers went out onto the shelf. I just stood there, running my hands over the pens in their bins. ALL those brand new markers in every color imaginable! OMG! Heaven!

I think I'm getting the hang of using the markers. The images up above of the sneak peeks are all done with copic markers.

I do have FANTASTIC news though.
Memories Live On is sending me to get Copic Certified during Winter CHA in Anaheim!
It really doesn't get much better than that.
Or does it?
Vivian mentioned going into CHA Saturday after the class and Sunday.
Seriously? Seriously! Get out of here! Wow. No way! I love being part of this team!
Thank you, Vivian and Mort, and Memories Live On!

Teri... Send me your mailing address. BTW, are you the same Teri that wanted the Tic Tac snowman?


How would you like to receive this beautiful set by Hero Arts?


Just leave me a comment here and let me know if you have tried Copic markers.
If so, let me know which ones you prefer... the Original Copic, Ciao, Sketch?
What are a few of your favorite colors that you find yourself reaching for time and time again? What paper do you use with them?

Me? I love the Original ones because of the fine tip. My favorite colors are Cadmium Orange, Sepia, Sand, Caramel, Chartreuse... lots more to be added I'm sure since I have new colors coming on order from the store. I heard Lipstick Red is gorgeous! I use SU! Whisper White. No problems there except that it bleeds through the paper in the back a little. I really want to try Gina K's Luxury White and Neenah Classic Solar White. Does anyone have a suggestion either or? Any other suggestions or comments?

Stay warm!


I had the pleasure of meeting Lain Ehmann in person yesterday at Memories Live On.


Lain has a fun little book coming out titled
"Snippets: Mostly True Tales from the Lighter Side of Scrapbooking."


Creating Keepsakes writes: Giggle. Chortle. Maybe even LOL! Author Lain Ehmann visits the nuttier aspects of scrapbooking in a series of delightful essays exploring everything from getting started and making time for the hobby to stalking scrapbooking celebrities and yearning for a magazine worth scrapspace. Snippets makes a great stocking-stuffer and is perfect for gift-giving at any time of the year; Snippets is perfect for any scrapbooker from expert to novice. Find out how funny scrapbooking can be.

Lain read a little essay from her book for us and I got a good laugh from it. She read just a couple of pages (just a snippet!) and I was hooked! I am really looking forward to the book's arrival. You can preorder through the store now. It's only $9.99! This little 4" x 6" book will make the perfect stocking stuffer for scrapbookers. Just call the store and place your pre-order at (408) 446-9901 or stop by and do some holiday shopping too! They have lots of new goodies up on the shelves! There's more on the way too!!

Thank you for taking the time to do your "book signing" without books (giggle) and the make & take at the store.
See you in Anaheim, Lain!
