What's more fun than "gettin' inky" as you make some fun, vibrant, Artsy cards with Distress Stains?  Come join Marj for an afternoon of fun as you learn a new use for these great stains, as well as some other painterly products, embossing folders, and stamps.  Paint splats and art themed stamps are quite popular now, and you'll love these lively cards.   You are welcome to bring your own Distress Stains, or share Marj's as we make our cards.  The class samples are suggested guidelines, and there will be some variation in colors and composition. Please bring your Basic Kit, a trimmer, and an apron (or wear old clothes).  Bring vinyl gloves if you wish.

Magenta just released their new 2013 Fall Supplement. I went through it and found some wonderful stamps from Magenta that I just have to order, and I love the new Template. Click on the link to preview what you'd like to order through Art 'n Soul . . .

Humor from CHA (Craft & Hobby Association):


In late fall the Indians on a remote reservation asked their new chief if the coming winter was going to be cold or mild. But he had never been taught the old secrets. When he looked at the sky, he couldn't tell what the winter was going to be like. So, to be on the safe side, he told his tribe that the winter was indeed going to be cold and that they should collect firewood to be prepared.

After several days, he got an idea. He went to the phone booth, called the Weather Channel, and asked, "Is the coming winter going to be cold?"

"It looks like this winter is going to be quite cold," the meteorologist responded. So the chief went back to his people and told them to collect even more firewood.

A week later, he called the Weather Channel again. "Does it still look like it is going to be a very cold winter?'

"Yes,' the man again replied, "it's going to be a very cold winter."  The chief again went back to his people and ordered them to collect every scrap of firewood they could find.

Two weeks later, the chief called the Weather Channel again. "Are you absolutely sure that the winter is going to be very cold?"

"Absolutely," the man replied. "It's looking more and more like it is going to be one of the coldest winters we've ever seen."

"'How can you be so sure?" the chief asked.

The weatherman replied, "Because the Indians are collecting so much firewood."'

See you tomorrow!
