Getting in the spirit of Christmas

It's always amazing to me how quickly the days pass. November is hours away and the holidays will be upon us. I'm definitely not complaining, as I love the holidays, and I'm very much looking forward to making Christmas cards.

Here are samples of the cards we'll make in our November classes. We're using a new Christmas line by My Mind's Eye called Comfort & Joy.

Coordinating washi tape makes everything special!

Beautiful Bugs & Botanicals


Here's a sneak peek at Graphic 45's new collection called Nature Sketchbook...do you love it?! The colors are AHmazing! Even the accessories are outstanding, and the details in these graphics are gorgeous. I really think this is a beautiful collection with lots of possibilities.

What do you think -- would you attend a card making and/or home decor workshop using this new paper line? Let me know if you're interested -- the workshops would take place in San Diego county.

Feel free to just let me know what you think of the line itself, regardless of interest in a workshop. 

Have a terrific week ahead!

Ol' Cape Cod

Many of you may know how much Mom and I love Cape Cod. We try to get back there as often as possible, so it may come as no surprise that we're headed to Boston this weekend! We're ready to spend the week sightseeing, eating, shopping, and generally adventuring all around the Cape. It never, ever gets old!

We hope to check out the start of cranberry harvest...

...and we're renting a little cottage in Sandwich, a town we've not stayed in before...

...but we always LOVE visiting Sandwich...

...and we'll stroll along Main Street in Hyannis because there's always something new or something old we love to see...

...and one of our favorites pastimes of all?

It wouldn't be a visit to Cape Cod without a visit (or several!!) to The Polar Cave!

If you've visited Cape Cod before, what are some of your favorite things to do and see? If you've not visited, you must, and these lyrics from the old Patti Page song tell you why...

If you're fond of sand dunes and salty air
Quaint little villages here and there
(You're sure)You're sure to fall in love with old Cape Cod
(Cape Cod, that old Cape Cod)

If you like the taste of a lobster stew
Served by a window with an ocean view
(You're sure)You're sure to fall in love with old Cape Cod

Winding roads that seem to beckon you
Miles of green beneath a sky of blue
Church bells chimin' on a Sunday morn
Remind you of the town where you were born

If you spend an evening you'll want to stay
Watching the moonlight on Cape Cod Bay
You're sure to fall in love with old Cape Cod
(aah, aah)

If you spend an evening you'll want to stay (on Cape Cod Bay)
Watching the moonlight on Cape Cod Bay
You're sure to fall in love with old Cape Cod
You're sure to fall in love
You're sure to fall in love with old Cape Cod

Be sure to stop back again and get the "scoop" about our trip!
