Fun, Festive, Friends, Challenges, Changes and Giveaways...

I have lots of cool stuff to share. I have had a busy, but fun, past few days. Saturday morning I had the best time taking a Tim Holtz class with my BASB sista Anne . The class was amazing and spending time with Anne was icing on the cake. This was Anne's first class with Tim and my 5th (can you say stalker?) He really is the best!

Tim is actually here for the whole weekend, so Anne is taking more classes. I hope she has fun! This is the project we made. It is an acrylic / transparency Christmas book. I Loved it and can not wait to add pictures to it

I am a huge 'grungeboard junkie' , so I had to share this with Tim:

Last night I put the finishing touches on my BIA project. For those of you that do not know, Greta put up a Bind it All challenge up over at Studio Calico. There is still time to get in and win some cool prizes (even a BIA). So go check it out now! Here is my entry. Everyone knows I love the amazing Teresa Collins. I put together this little calendar using the 'Bind it All' and some of her paper lines (old & new). I have to say this will look good in my new office. Yes, I said new. Some changes going on at work. It is all good.

I also wanted to share some happy mail I recieved this week too. I won these awesome paint / puffy pens from my BASB sista LaVerne. These are so COOL girl! Can not wait to play with these! Thanks so much, I LOVE them!!

Teresa Collins has been doing tons of giveaways on her blog. I just recieved some of her dome rings. I can not wait to play & decorate these. They are so fun! Thanks girl!!

Well, it is rainy and muggy here. I think I am just going to sit on the couch and catch up on my reading and just enjoy. It is the perfect day for it. :-)

I love that photo of you, Anne and Tim. You may be a stalker, but he doesn't look scared at all. Some times stalking is a good thing. :o)
