We're getting very close to submitting the order for the Marianne Designs' dies and embossing folders. I spent part of today cutting out the dies I personally own so you could see how well they cut; I'll take these to the store sometime tomorrow so you can take an up-close look. By the end of the week I hope to cut the few Christmas dies I own.

These bird cages cut so nicely; as you can see, the lower bird
cage has a door that opens.
Tonight was the staff birthday card exchange. We celebrated birthdays for Marj, Alissa, Catherine and Susie. The cards were absolutely beautiful, of course! And the rhubarb pie and banana split cake that Sue prepared were out of this world! Susie shared with us the beautiful birthday cards made by last night's class sstudents (ahead of time!) . . . she was so delighted to see how creative and detailed and different each of the cards were. The cards were a wonderful reflection of the unique styles, imagination, creativity and artistic talents of everyone. Susie couldn't be more proud of Art 'n Soul's special customers and friends.
Helene prepared a special game for everyone to partake in. She had laser cut letters of the alphabet in both chipboard and Magenta papers. They were put out on the table and we were all to spell a word describing Susie with the letters.
Then Helene and Marj collected all of the letters and spelled this special message out . . .
|Catherine was the brave soul who climbed up on a chair|
to take this 'aerial' view.
It was a fun game. Many, many thanks to Helene for thinking up such a clever way to say Happy Birthday!
