1st a|s workshop!

6.26.2011 4pm
my 1st A Muse Studio workshop!

It was a fun, creative, and relaxing day of a|s cardmaking!  The attendees were my sister, bff, and my bff's 11 yr old daughter. They were both beginner stampers, so they needed more time to learn the basics.  I may have been a little tough on the basics, but they fell in love with all the techniques that were taught.  All 5 of the cards that they made turned out so pretty and creative!  We masked, paper pierced, used copics, and used embelishments.  They were both worn out by the end of the night! :)

Guest book comments:

VM (the bff):
"Fun workshop! Very simple; thought it would've been hard but nos so.  Got to be creative. Easy to follow.  Very fun! Thank you! :)"

SSA (the sister):
"It was fun and great. made all these cards was great for the first time... =)"

AVV (the bff's 11 yr old daughter):
"I liked doing it!  I love being creative.  Thank you!!! :0"

Thanks for making my first workshop a huge success!

Happy Birthday, Nina!

From 2002 till 2008, I got to work with great fun people at Financial 21 Community Credit Union.  Today, the company merged with California Coast Credit Union and a few of them stuck around.  Most of us went our separate ways but thanks to Facebook, I can "see" them all the time.

The cookie has spoken

I learned about "how to read a fortune cookie the right way" lol.... My sister taught me this when I lived in Cali...whatever your fortune says, you say "in bed" to complete it. 
 It cracks me up everytime!!! 

I jumped at the opportunity to buy A Muse's Fortune Cookie Word set when it first came out. 
Thanks to Papertales in SD!
I love that Cali friends be sure to say hello to Michelle if you stop by!
Too bad A Muse Studio does not have this set in their catalog yet....

6.13.2011 ~ Officially an A Muse Creative Consultant

It was three years ago I took my first cardmaking class with Jill Grace at Cool Scrapbook Stuff in Poway, CA.  It was then I fell in love with the stamps and their products.  I've been an A Muse addict since then!  My very first stamp was "wild bouquet" and the "cupcake builder" set.  Although I misplaced my cupcakes and had to purchase a second set.  It was a very sad moment when my cupcakes went missing.  I cried to the girls in the lounge about it.  They were sweet and consoled me during this tough time. :(  Now for the good news:

I signed up and ordered the deluxe starter kit to become part of the a|s creative consultant team!
Yay, me!!! 
 I'm so excited and can't wait to create! 
I even rhyme! LOL... :)
