Life is a Journey...

and this is a book about it. Hereś what I know...women scrap about their children, their travels, their heritage, their families....just about everyone but themselves. So this is a book about you...where you´ve been, where you are now and a page or two for where you are going next....

It has a vintage/shabby chic feel and lots of room for journaling. There is plenty of stamping and a few new tricks. I will show you a simple binding method that you can use on any size book. It is made using the Lost and Found collection of paper and oodles of tags. yes, oodles. There is ribbon and trim - both vintage and new. A charm or bead on every page....and buttons, brads and idea-ology elements. Each page has a theme and i will provide you a list of journaling questions if you are stumped. When you sign up for the class you will receive a supply list and a list of the eighteen pages. If you want, you can bring your photos and place them on the pages as we go. This is an intermediate class - you need to know how to stamp & emboss and the basics of using distress ink in order to keep up! As always, I hope you put your own spin on the pages...there will be lots of options for that! It will be a fun, fast paced day and I hope you can join us.

Here is a peak at part of one of the pages...your favorite color. You will start with white ribbon and flowers and make them any color your heart desires...and go from there. Picture ideas...things in your favorite color, how you have used it in your life, you wearing it...any thing at all. Journaling ideas...what your favorite color was when you were a little girl, when you were a teenager, why it is your favorite color, what other colors you love, what color do you hate and never use...I could go on and on...and that is just about color! You get the idea...and there are 17 other pages to fill up.

Short of ideas? Can´t think of what you would say about yourself? There are already lots of interesting women signed up for the class - they are happy to share and not afraid to offer their ideas and opinions - so you will be inspired!

The class is being offered twice - an all day session on Saturday, August 28th from 9 am to 6 pm OR in a two part format on two Sunday afternoons in September, the 12th and the 26th. Some people prefer to work all day and get it done and some people max out after about 5 hours and would rather split it up in to two days. Hopefully one of these options fits in your calender. UPDATE: the August 28th class is sold out although there are some spots left in the Sunday sessions. If you are already signed up, would you please add a small circle punch to your supply list - any one that is one half to seven/eighths inch in diameter will work. It will work a little better if everyone has their own....thanks!
