My personal thanks to everyone who signed up for my "Sweet Somethings" class and showed up! Despite the snow and freezing temperatures, all students showed up. I'm so happy that many of you found the extra time to make extra boxes, heart pockets and baskets. You didn't take much of the candies, though . . . a real dilemma for me!

Marj has added a bonus card for her "One Stamp, Three Ways" class on Monday, February 17. It's President's Day Holiday which means . . . you're available to take the class! Yippee!

by Marj Marion for "One Stamp, Three Ways" Class on Feb. 17
Monday, February 17, 1:00-3:30  ONE STAMP, THREE WAYS!, with Marj, $30.
Don't you love holidays on a Monday?  Come enjoy a class with Marj as you play with one stamp, done three beautiful ways.  We'll use gorgeous stamps from Magenta and Impression Obsession AND, you'll get ot play with Marj's FAVORITE new Library Alphabet Tag die set from Memory Box.  You can choose the word(s) you spell on the card using these adorable dies.  Marj will share coloring techniques and embellishment tricks.  If there is time, we'll do a bonus project.  Bring your basic kit, and tweezers, and if you already have the Library Alphabet Tag set, please bring it along.

Call the store (360.357.6820) or stop in to sign up.

From Helene Metivier's blog, her version of one stamp used many ways. I had asked her about showing how to use Magenta's Cedar Branch (0651.L) stamp in various ways; here is what she came up with!

That's all I have time for tonight. I'm going to find a Mango Juice popsicle and enjoy a little of the Olympic Games before turning in. Go USA!
