Fun stuff ...

Happy Friday Everyone!  Super tired this morning (fun storm last night ... hydro off but not a whole lotta rain ... oh ... and a really loud frog outside that everyone thought was a sick racoon).  Can't type a proper sentence.  Off to the dentist shortly, but wanted to share this online class with everyone.  The video isn't specific to the class, but it gives you a little peek into Shimelle's philosophy ...

I've heard about Shimelle Laine for ages now, but have never looked her up until I saw a reference to this class on several blogs.  LOVE her ideas!  I've signed up for the class and have done the work for the first prompt (only about 9 prompts behind now).  It may take me awhile to get through it all, but I've read through the other prompts and am looking forward to the process.
Let me know what you think about the class and if you're participating.
Have a great day ...

"I Swear" projects from Lesley

Hey Gals!  July is certainly flying by.  Hope everyone is enjoying their holidays and have been able to squeeze in a bit of relaxation between running kids to camp and all of their summer activities.
The August kit is coming along nicely and will be revealed on August 1st.
Until then, here are a few more of Lesley's projects using the "I Swear" kit from June ...

The "Lazy Days" kit is currently sold out, but there are still a few "I Swear" kits to be had :)
