Currently I am planning January classes. Have you used the Cricut pens to draw some of the intricate design cuts? I did using the Elegant Edges cartridge and the results came out better than I thought. Some of the cuts are hard to cut if they are too detailed but by drawing them and then cutting the rest you get a better smaller frame. I tried the frames at 3" and the border at 1". Worked out!

This weekend is the Douglas County Fairground Christmas Fair, Fri. - Sun. We have participated for the past 6 or 7 years except for last year. We really did think the house would be sold by now, Nooooooooo.
Anyway, we are doing it again and I have been going through things and repurposing and decorating, and inventing.
I bought some pretty tea cups at an auction and I added a chocolate scented candle that looks like truffles in a chocolate cup, some Lindor Truffles, & a tea bag. I wrapped them up, added a bow and VOILA!
I actually forgot to put the tea bag inside the cup before I wrapped them. So I made a card holder from the Paisley Cricut cartridge & added a peppermint & snowflake cut out from Very Merry Tags Cricut cartridge.
I will take more photos as we finish setting out everything. Today we put up the booth. I made another banner sign using Storybook lettering. Turned out very cute!
Finally today, there is a rumor about another Blog Hop soon. Stay tuned for deets.

The Cricut pumpkin is from Happy Hauntings. It is the pumpkin @ 4". Using a 1 3/4" Stampin Up circle punch perfectly made the hole for the cup to go through.
I have more cards from all my classes this month (October) I will post throughout the week. Next I have to design cards for all my December classes.

I am also going through - AGAIN! - all my craft supplies to sell or give away. I am making a little box for Blog Candy if I get 150 followers. I have gone down a few in the past few month, but I only need 13 so if you are a follower and know someone get them onboard.

Above is the October Cricut project we will be doing in class. The dates are, Sat., Oct. 15 & Tues., Oct 18 at Roseburg Book and Stationery in Roseburg 10 am - 12-ish pm. The cost is $10 and I have a few seats left in both days. After they are filled I take Waiting List names.
I am also putting together a class using the Paper Lace cartridge for my class in Eugene. I never used it before so I am also learning as I am prepping the class. Can't wait. More to come.

This is my first year I did not work at the Douglas County Fair as the person in charge of Crafts & Floral. Do I miss it? Yes, until I start thinking of all the problems and I am so glad I decided not to work. However, I did enter a few things. I baked a Sour Cream Cake, Peanut Butter Cookies, Beer Bread & Oatmeal Carmelitas.
I don't know if I won yet, but DH did win 4 1st place, 8 second place & 3 third place ribbons in Land Products. This is the produce he picked right before he entered it. We know we won 1 1st for his pickled beets, a 2nd and 3rd for our canned tuna. Whoo hoo. I am going to try to go to the fair and see how we faired (sorry) in the Photography and Floral entries.

In Lime Light, we are putting together cards for soldiers in Afghanistan. The more cards the better. As one soldier said, "There are no stores we can go to buy cards to send home." This is a great way to show them we support and love them for every thing they do.

I love the Spirelli Medallion technique I learned over at: www.capadiadesign.com/search/label/P%20-%20Spirelli
She has the most amazing ideas!!! Check out her blog.
I decided to take off the bow closure and it looks a lot better. I will take another photo with it off. More later...

I have a great excuse fro not being around...Scrapbook Fun Fest has pretty much taken over our life for a month. All of us have been taking care of all the little details and we did an amazing job. Whoo Hoo to Janice & Gary of Roseburg Book and Stationery, Karen, and of course my wonderful husband Rod.
I have included a few photos of the event and our booth. We had 216 croppers and I still have to figure out how many Walk and Shoppers, but all our vendors want to come back so they must have done as good as we did in our little booth. Did I mention Rod is the King of our Bargain Bin?
He was filling it up constantly throughout the day.
Seven Feathers Casino Resort has the greatest group of people you can imagine. Anything and everything we needed they were there to help and get it for us. We couldn't have done the event without them.
I am now taking online classes to be certified with SDU (Scrapbook Design University) through EK Success so I can teach Scrapbook classes at Michael's here in Roseburg. More later...

We will complete one of these in class and everyone receives enough product to make a second one and with the leftovers, everyone will be able to make a few cards
Again, you can sign-up for the classes at our website or at Roseburg Book and Stationery in Roseburg, OR.

Well, I lost two more followers, so now I need 12 followers and I can give away the Blog Candy that is burning a hole in its mail packaging.
I am planning another Blog Hop for the Limelighters soon. Maybe a...no, I won't tell you quite yet. Still in the planning stages.
Off to take more Nyquil and sleep. Sleep has been good.

As you all know we are totally down-sizing everything so we can sell the house and buy an RV and hit the road for a couple of years. So I have lots of stuff I would rather give to my loyal followers rather than anyone else.
Yesterday I went through all my school boxes. Whew, talk about memories. I was ruthless and I am sending a lot of my books to my sister who is currently teaching pre-school and my nieces who both have degrees and teaching credentials in Special Ed. They took after their aunt. I am so proud of them!
I have been working of a couple of big projects. As soon as they are finished I will be sharing and putting kits up for sale on Etsy. Also my DH has been building some great stuff for crafting enthusiasts. They will be on sale on Etsy also by the end of the week. Can't wait to share.
