Caffeinated Papercuts Comes to Captured Moments Scrapbooking Store!

Ohhh, I'm SO EXCITED! I'll be at my favorite scrapbook store, Captured Moments, 8th anniversary celebration this Saturday, September 29th. Why, you ask? Well, all of the cool class instructors will be there... :D

That's right, I'll be teaching one seriously awesome class there come Saturday, December 15th! If you're local (or more than happy to make the drive) then mark your calendars for one heck of a class. I'll post the exact details here when I have them (little things like time and cost) but I do know that everyone who signs up will be making all of the goodies* shown here!

Hot chocolate and tea holders

Greeting cards and holder

Gift tags
...and a bag to hold them all in
See? One cute package!

 One nice, tidy holiday package...exactly the point of the class. Extra kits will be available for purchase as well if you'd like to make even more at home!

Can you tell how utterly excited I am??

If you stop by the store this Saturday between 10am and 3pm, I'll be there doing Make & Takes of some cute little treat holders, just in time for Halloween! Hope to see you there!

*final paper decisions have not been made by yours truly yet, so don't hold me to the photos!

Cassie and the Jingle Bell

Hi there - I'm getting prepped for not one, but two craft shows this weekend! Eek! I'll be back next week with fun crafty things, but in the meantime, enjoy a crazy cat story. :)

So right before we left on vacation back in July, my Cassie cat (aka Mama's GORGEOUS baby GIRL! Yes, I'm biased) managed to pop her collar off somewhere in the house. Not the first time a kitty has done that around here, so I didn't think much of it. I informed her to go find it and leave it somewhere for me to find and put back on her.

Yes, I realize this makes me sound like a crazy cat lady. However, it's actually worked with her brothers!

Fast-forward to this week and the collar is still missing. So I cave and buy her a new, pretty pink one. Now, those of you whom have ever bought kitty collars before will have noticed that they all come with little jingle bells attached. I'm not sure of their actual purpose, but around here they're known as Kitty Torture Devices. Many a laugh have been had watching the boys chase the bell that's following them before taking the humane path and removing it from the collar.

On this day, I wanted a laugh. I was still peeved about Cassie ditching the first one, so I placed the collar on her, bell and all, and waited for the floor show.

It never happened.

My brilliant baby girl simply proceeded to strut around showing off her new pink collar, then proceeded to successfully sneak up on her brothers. By the time they heard the jingle bell it was already too late.
That's right, my little girl became a stealth ninja bearing a jingle bell of doom!
