Happy Day

Boy, we have been busy packing kits, traveling and teaching this week with one more stop to go.  

We had a terrific time seeing old friends at Pocketful of Treasures.  More than 1/2 of each class were girls we had met the first time we were in Fresno...Pam, Gerri, Catie, Becky, Caytee, Jan, Robin, Kristi, Donna, Rebecca, Jennifer, Megan and Janice, Rosa, Josie....the list could go on and on.  Such a lovely group of ladies. Super friendly with us and more importantly, with each other.  Wish we lived a bit closer so we could visit more ofter
first class - Close to my Heart Journal
everyone got to personalize their cover with words/numbers
And then our second class...the little house that has a little book in the roof.

with all their little houses complete
Deb and I wanted to show a sample of the Receipt Holder for our store visit.  The one problem...we didn't have one.  So we packed up a bin full of the new Conservatory papers, a small piece of canvas, Roma book covers, a couple Petit Carnet books, a few old keys, wire and a glue stick.  Oh, and one old button.  Really anything that we could grab at the last moment as we walked out the door to Fresno. After our make and take party on Friday night we went back to the hotel and made this. 

Love it. 

Here are some detail shots...

Love working with the Receipt Holder.  Really one of my favorite products as of late.  I love that you can change everything out on a whim or as the seasons change.  I love the idea of (even though it could be costly) of clustering 4 or 6 together on one wall for a HUGE impact.  I think it could be fun to add photos, quotes, notes, etc under the wire clips.  A really "NO GLUE" project.

Happy Day.
