A new class addition to the schedule at Art 'n Soul!
by Patti Highlands for her class on January 28 at Art 'n Soul
Tuesday, January 28, 6:15-8:30 p.m. Patti
"Quick & Easy Cards with Heart" $25

Patti has come up with some quick and easy cards for Valentines Day. 
These also can be sent to that special friend or loved one that you care 
and are thinking of them. This card class involves basic card making 
with layering cardstock, using embossing folders, dies and stamping. We 
will be making 5 cards during the class and if time permits, Patti has a 
cute diaper fold to demo that you can fill with treats for your special 

And Marj has scheduled a repeat of her sold-out January 19 class on Monday, January 20, from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The 20th is a state holiday celebrating Martin Luther King's birthday, so this daytime class will be fun to take as a break and start to the work week.
by Marj Marion for her class on January 19 and again on January 20.
The New Year is off to a fast start, and February is creeping up
quickly!  Whether you send Valentine"s Day cards or just want to make
some special friendship cards, Marj has some fun, artistic cards to
offer in this class. (Nothing too mushy!)  What's not to "love"?...the
class will include die cutting, stamping, Washi tape, clever
compositions, embossing folders,  intriguing folds, and a fun project
with the Envelope Board. (It's a secret project, so you have to take to
class to find out!).. AND, it might involve a little chocolate!!  Bring
your basic kit, your Envelope Board if you have one (not required), and a small trimmer.
Sample board is up at the shop.

Please stop in or call the store to sign up for either class at 360.357.6820!

Patti has found an awesome way to hold the Christmas cards sent to her family this year . . . we're all thinking that Patti should share this fun project with us at the store, so she's working on it!

Pretty awesome, eh? What a great way to 're-live' those wonderful Christmas cards, letters and photos throughout the year, and at Christmas time next year!

Look at this beautiful card by Karen Burniston, designer of new dies for Elizabeth Craft Designs. I'm so thrilled that I will have the chance to take both of the Elizabeth Craft Designs' classes at CHA next weekend!

We're so pleased to finally announce, and show you the photo of, the winner of Art 'n Soul's 12 Days of Christmas promotion. Robin Taylor was the very much 'surprised' winner. She said she never wins anything and was crying happy tears. Robin, we're so happy for you and that we have added a new friend to Art 'n Soul. There was quite a variety of treasures in the basket, and Robin wants to learn how to use everything! And Robin, we do want to show you! The new year is going to be a fun one for Robin . . . and Art 'n Soul!

I was browsing through Mary Ann Moss' blog, Dispatch from LA ( and loved this poem she posted . . .

The Peace of Wild Things
When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.


See you tomorrow!
