Classes and a Compendium of Curiosities winner

Why is it when I am stressed about forgetting something I always have a dream that I am working back at Millers Outpost (a retail clothing store) and I can't remember the combination to the safe.  I worked for them almost 20 years ago, yet it is same thing every time.  The brain is a funny thing!  Just a couple hours away from leaving for South Africa so the "trying to remember" thing is in full effect.  If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram (luckyday) I will be posting pictures when I can.  I am quite sure Mario will be doing the same. 

Now that the new product is in the warehouse I will be teaching some classes.  The first of which is only 3 weeks after I get home!   I will be at Scrapbook Island in San Jose, CA on April 4th and 5th....teaching 3 classes: the large Collection folio, a Mini Configurations book and a Worn Cover Journal.  If you live in the bay area and are interested in taking a class with me, please check out the link on their Facebook page or call the store for more information.  I will be teaching these classes at other stores so if you don't live in the bay area I just might be coming to a town near you.

Collection Folio
 mini configurations book
 worn cover journal

And the winner is...
