About Me

My photo

I am married to a Great Guy - Charlie.  We have a beautiful daughter, Charese, who is a JOY to have.  We love the outdoors, watching movies, reading and I love scrapbooking and cardmaking.  There are other hobbies as well.  I love to meet new people and share my love of scrapbooking and cardmaking with people.

50 Holiday Card Class

Hello everyone - I managed to get the cards designed this weekend - sorry for the delay.  I am excited about them - not to excited about all the cutting I have to do now to get the kits ready.  Actually I am excited about preparing this class for you.  We will be making 10 each of the 5 different designs for a total of 50 cards.

Here are the samples (which are subject to change due to supplies etc.) But this is the jist of what they will be.




I just love this class.  It will be offered at the following places.
Buffalo Community Education - Tuesday, October 12th and Monday, October 25 you can register by calling 763-682-8776 or http://www.buffalocommunityed.com/
Rockford Community Education - Wednesday, October 13 you can register for this class by calling 763-477-4563 or http://www.rockford.k12.mn.us/
Howard Lake Community Education - Thursday October 14 you can register for this class by calling 320-543-3600
Delano Community Education - Tuesday, October 26 you can register for this class by calling 763-972-6210 or http://www.delano.k12.mn.us/ click on community tab
Watertown/Mayer Community Education - Wednesday, Ocboer 27 you can register for this class by calling 952-955-0280 or http://www.wm.k12.mn.us/ click on community ed register on line tab

Again like usual if you have the unfortunate dismay that the above dates and times don't work for you - you can purchase the kit from me and put them together at home yourself.  The cost for this is $35 for just the kit not stamped (you would have to use your own stamps) or $40 and I would stamp and put one of each card together for you for a sample.

Need more than 50 cards just purchase an additional kit for $35 and stamp away.  Please let me know at or before start of class that you would like to this by emailing me at tlbcreates@comcast.net.

Again I hope to see you all soon at a class.

Thoughts from a Mom today

Today - I woke up to my daughter still in pain.  She fell off the monkey bars Friday at school.  It didn't seem to bother her to much yesterday but through the evening it got worst.  So I sent her to my husband (he handles those things better - after all I have never had a broken bone he has) and he told me I should bring her in before Gymnastics so we know what is going on.  Sure enough - not good news - broken elbow well she thinks there is a bone in there broken so we have to see the specialist on Monday.  What a morning!!  So right now it is wrapped in an ace bandage and in a sling and she is bored out of her mind.  Which is making it difficult on Mom what kind of things can you do?  Well we are starting with movies and now I am trying to get some cards designed out for my upcoming class.  I really need to get them done this weekend.  I hope I can get inspired and get my work done.  Well that is what I am off to do.  I hope and pray that my daughter recovers quickly and that on Monday we get perhaps some good news.

Now to work.

CENTER PIECES

These are the center pieces I made for my Husbands 40th Surprise Birthday Party.  I did a Duck Hunting there which was very hard to find decorations for so I had to use the creative force.  I think I did a good job.  Also I am posting the Invitations I made and sent out for his party.  Hope you enjoy.

This above picture is on the back wall of our garage - my niece drew it free hand and then she and my daughter helped me paint it and then I finished the painting by adding all the little details etc.  It was a lot of fun and we did it for my husband who really likes it.  Now we feel like we are driving into the hunting blind every day. 

I don't have a picture of the invitation yet so I will get that and load it as soon as possible.
Thanks for taking a look.

An Apology

Hello everyone -
I want to extend an apology to all of my customers and followers out there.  I have pictures of upcoming classes and dates etc. but I have not been able to get them out on my blog.  I am hoping that I can finally get them out on the blog tomorrow.  So please check tomorrow evening or Tuesday for updates.  Again I do apologize for this delay.

I hope all of you have enjoyed your summer - the Browns sure have and of course we are gearing up here for our favorite season FALL!!!

I miss all of you and I am looking forward to meeting up with you at my upcoming classes.

Have a great rest of the Sunday evening.

Tracy
