Posted by Picasa

Date: Monday Sept. 28
Date: Monday Oct. 26
Time: 6-8pm
Fee: $40 (includes both classes)
Join Dawn for a few hours and create an amazing wall calendar to keep for yourself or give away as a Christmas gift. Our calendars were very popular last year, so Dawn has come up with a creative and colorful calendar for you to put together using paper, ribbons, stickles, die cuts and more! Make one for yourself, your spouse or Grandma and Grandpa. You are sure to get several compliments on your amazing calendar.

The class will be split into two evenings to give you plenty of time to put together your calendar and if time permits you can even lay down your pictures. **September 28th we will complete January through June and October 26th we will complete July through December.

All materials will be included and pre-cut (with the exception of papers used to mount photos). Students will need to bring their own adhesive (tape runner style) and glue dots.

There are a limited number of calendars available, so sign-up soon.

If you are unable to attend the classes, kits will be available after October 1st.

organizing thursday...

I dedicated a large portion of today to the search for items to assist in the endless task of organizing my craft space and now the store. Actually, i was searching for a desk for husband, but that was a horrible failure. I'm sure i will end up going to the over priced furniture store that is in santa cruz and spend way more than i planned, but we will also have that desk forever and ever so it ends up being worth it, right? stupid grown up junk!

anywho, so whilst i was looking for something to help husband out, i remembered the set of shelves directly behind me at my desk. (oh, there are more equally messy shelves in a little closet by the garage in which i have planted my holly* flag and claimed as my own, but these are current crap, erm product that i'm working with...)

This is the image that i remembered... actually, i pictured more glitter,
but thats just a mental thing....

so, i gave in. I bought an expedit unit. but i only got the medium one.

I figured i would lay it on its side and use the top for storage too. its a little long and going to stick out a bit, BUT i already have crap blocking part of the walkway, so what'a a little more, right?

OK, now i go and try to con the manny into building my shelf so i can keep my organizing thursday mojo going. that and i need to finish writing a newsletter.... hum... anywho, hope all is well!

OH YEA! check out jane's latest blog post over at SBSRUS!!! Super cute embellishments!!!

actual photos AND a challenged!!!

Hey! I finally have some photos of a couple things i've made in the past few days. I really do need to get better at taking photos of my stuff again. a lot goes out, but pratically nothing gets posted. anywho, photos!!!

Last year's pumpkin carving. something i'm really looking forward to again this year! well, the pumpkins were neat, but roasting the pumpkin seeds afterwards was awesome!

This is a layout about a goat. really. thats all. i have no idea what this goat represents other than it was part of my family's farm at some point in time.
just because i've had a couple people as about it, i made the flowers with a 10 seconds studio mold, cut the flowers out and inked with rust, espresso, and butterscotch alcohol inks. i also did the crystals in the background with butterscotch and meadow alcohol inks. OH! and those stitches and that peak of a doily are new from hambly. I already know the stitches are going to make it into the debut kit for The Sampler. Anywho....
btw, i did these as samples for the 1st challenge at SBSRUS. Check it out!

Dont forget, the DT call is still open and rockin&rollin, so if you havent checked out yet, head HERE and get to work!!!

ok, i think its stew for dinner so i need to get to work on that now. its gloomy and fabulous here. yes, it is possible to get sick of the sun sometimes. i plan to take full advantage of this rainy day. hope everyone is enjoying their day as much as i plan to...

pretty umbrellas & dry socks,


the day has finally come...

i just posted the DT call for the kit club. I'm giddy almost. it makes it more real as i am able to get more people involved in it. WEEEEE....

Linkie here!

go check it out and apply for the DT. We really are looking for a wide range of creative people to design for us. ok, now to see if i can sneak a little sleep in...

hope everyone has a neat-o tuesday.



"If you don't learn Hebrew, you won't be barmitzvah’ed and, if you're not barmitzvah’ed, I'll die of embarrassment!"

so, tonight we're doing a bar mitzvah for a little 13 year old (no shit...) girl at the Menlo Circus Club. Want to know a little more about this "Circus Club"? Here's what their website says about them:

In 1920, a group of young girls gathered on an Atherton estate to play and ride their ponies. As young children will, these girls formed a "club" and decided to give a circus for the enjoyment of their parents, friends and neighbors. Mrs. W. B. Weir, the mother of one of the girls, suggested that the proceeds of this circus be given to the Stanford Convalescent Home (now called Children's Hospital at Stanford). The first circus was held in the summer of 1920 on the W. B. Weir property at Middlefield Road and Glenwood Avenue. Youngsters performed on their ponies and horses while others brought pet cats, goats and dogs which they had taught to do stunts. The first circus raised $500 for the Stanford Convalescent Home.

The following year, the circus grew. Adults promoted the circus into a social event, drawing people from as far north as San Francisco and as far south as San Jose. The third year, the circus became even larger, as did the social event, and it became obvious to parents the circus had outgrown the two fields. In the fall of 1922, land was purchased for the development of Menlo Circus Club, which was incorporated the following year.

Over the years, the Club has been the scene of outstanding horse shows, polo matches, swimming events, tennis tournaments and gala parties. The Children's Hospital at Stanford continues to hold their annual horse show and party, Tally-Ho, on the Club's grounds. While the present Menlo Circus Club has evolved from its simple family beginnings--children's parties, family picnics, trail rides, etc.--it has always been and continues to be a family club.

Simple family beginnings and children's parties? How about an 80+ kid extravaganza (no to mention the parents...) with photo booths, djs and i dont know what else...

Should be fun.... In honor of tonight, how about we learn a few yiddish phrases:

A gezunt ahf dein kop! - Good health to you (lit., Good health on your head)
A klog iz mir! - Woe is me!
A maidel mit a vayndel - A pony-tailed nymphet.
A shtyfer mogn - Constipated
Choleryeh - Cholera; a curse, plague
Ess, bench, sei a mensch - Eat, pray, don't act like a jerk!

Anywho, hope everyone is having a super saturday and mazel tov!

well, poop.

ok. my hyper organization fails me. i have a few more details to work on before i can get the DT call out there into the world. last night i got distracted by actual crafting projects *gasp* and didnt harass the appropriate people. But all is well. This is why i left plenty of grace period to give everyone who wanted to apply enough time to work on their application. BUT i would like to share a couple of the things i was working on last night. Among other things, i was working on some christmas cards. I dont get the feeling that any of these are "done" yet, but i think they're all good starts.

(sorry about the horrible flash, but i was having a hard time getting the detail to show)

anywho, i'm off to work on that project list i made yesterday. have a super thursday everyone!
