The Butterfly Project

The Lime Light group's project for June and July is making butterflies for The Butterfly Project. If you have never heard of it you can go to:
I went outside my comfort zone and made the two butterflies above using wire and beads. Now, I have a ton of beads and everything anyone could need to make project after project, but this is the first time I made something like this. I must say I really like the way they turned out and plan on doing some more.
I encourage anyone and everyone to get involved with the project and make some butterflies so the Holcaust Museum can meet their goal of 1,500,000 butterflies by 2013.
If you are a teacher, great project for the kids and they have lesson plans you can use in class.

New Class

I have added new classes for June at Roseburg Book and Stationery in Roseburg. It is an ongoing class and every month you will learn two new techniques and make samples to put in your Technique book along with two cards using those same techniques.

Thanks to Krista who is my Stampin' Up demonstrator and who I take classes from every month, for this idea. She teaches us two techniques every month and I am on my second Technique book with her. Check out her blog. There is a link on the right hand side of my blog and if you can, sign-up for one of her classes. They are amazing!!! Why do you think I teach classes? To go to her classes, of course!

The first set of techniques I am teaching is using Alcohol inks. Love them! For the next five months I will be teaching 10 techniques plus the first class everyone will make the books. You can email me to add your name to the list or sign-up at Roseburg Book and Stationery in Roseburg.

Scrapbook Fun Fest

I think I am finally catching up. Last Saturday's event at Seven feathers Casino Resort was beyond all of our expectations. I haven't finished working the numbers yet, but this was definitely our biggest show yet. We were a little leery about numbers on the Memorial Day weekend, but in the end we all believe it probably worked to our benefit.

Here are a few pictures from the day.

Most of the photos I took came out blurry, but I hope you can get the idea. On the whole, looking at our comment cards, most everyone was pleased and had a great time. There were quite a few that stayed until the end.

Seven Feather's staff was amazing. Anything anyone needed or if there was something that had to be fixed they were right on it. The food was not only good but very reasonably priced.

Back to unpacking and organizing to start my next big project. I will have more on it, but for now I will tell you it has to do with making butterflies for an incredible project.
