Sharing The Love!

Good Morning Everybody!

Just wanted to share a few things with you before I get started with my Saturday regime...So much to do...

The winter grass has taken over the back yard...Gotta mow that, I always cut back my roses on Valentine's Day...A big thorny task....Crepe Myrtles need to be trimmed...Mom's Birthday present to be  finished...Have to try out the new Dylusions stamps...MUST pull out Tim's new Distress Paints....Oh and get a project ready for Tuesday!  I CAN DO IT!  Or at least that's what I'm telling myself!

Like I said above, I wanted to share some stuff with ya...

First, If you are around the area, come on down to the Gaylord Texas Hotel in Grapevine, Texas next weekend.  It's the Scrapbook EXPO February 22 and 23rd.  I will be demoing Dyan's new inks, stamps and stencils, as well some cool new Ranger products for the Crafty Scrapper in Waxahachie!  It truly is going to be alot of fun!  Come on down and please come give me a hug!!

Another thing I wanted to mention...Brenda Whitehead or as we know and love her...Bren, is having a Time Warp Art Retreat in Austin on April 12-15!  In my hometown of "Keep Austin Weird."  Yahooo!  It's going to be an amazing time to get together and just do art!  Too Cool...If you are interested, please email Bren at bren47 at austin dot rr dot com ...

Also wanted to share some Fantastic tags that Shari had done over on her blog Shari's Creations With the Cricut.  Go check them out and please give her some love!




And...A HUGE Thank You LoriCtoo for the amazing Valentine tags you sent to me!  I will love and cherish them forever!  Please take a look at these beauties!




Thanks Tons For Coming By!
Have an Awesome Saturday Y'all!!

  4. Jim, you are too sweet showing my tag on your blog. Thanks so much you made my day! The Valentine's tags from Lori are awesome, love all the layering (good job Lori) I wish I were closer to Texas, I'd love to see you do your demo and join in on the retreat. I'd also love to be out doing yard work, it's 24 degrees here and snowing, hopefully summer will be here soon. I bet your Basset Hounds love playing with daddy in the yard. (You did say you had basset's didn't you?) I hope you find the time to get everything you want to done today. Don't stress about Tuesdays project, we'll watch you do whatever.

  5. Jim, just checking in to see what you're up to for the weekend and of course you have a list a mile long. Don't envy you the yard work. Finish your Mum's gift - we can just chat on Tuesday. I would love to come see you but it's just a tad too far from Seattle. A virtual hug, anyway, demo-man. :) Shari and Lori - you made gorgeous tags and I loved seeing them. Off to my own chores now. Have a great weekend Jim.
    Hugs

  6. I am new to your blog and enjoying every bit of it. Theresa (no blog) introduced me. Somehow I believe you will turn your Saturday To-Do list into your Ta-Dah!!! list. Creative Hearts are Happy Hearts...

  7. I wish I could be there next weekend. One of the reasons I can't go to things like that (besides money) is my health. I suffer from sever anemia. I can't do a lot of walking. I also have issues with my white blood cell & platelet counts being low so my doc doesn't like me hanging out in large crowds. I'd like to go to the retreat though. My problem with that is by the time I'd know if I was up to it, it will be all sold out I'm sure. But I'm going to try. I'd be out of my league in the crafting area, but I don't mind that much at all. :)

  8. Oh and I just saw Noell Hyman's video of Tim demoing his paints & I think I might be in love! And I don't even paint!! Please do a video of them so I can see them in action again. :)

  9. Awesome Tags! Love them all! I hope you get everything done that you have on your list! Congrats on getting to demo Dyan's and Tim's goodies! It is so much fun to do that! I just got checking my email and blogs... I had to work today! Have a fabulous rest of the weekend!

  10. Hi Jim,
    just bopped in to see what was up with you. Gorgeous day to be out in the yard, but I don't envy your chores. I spent Wed and Thurs morning trying to clean mine. I have tons of prunning that will take several more weekends to accomplish and the help of hubby. Atleast I got a start. Still need to prune my roses. Hate that job and very glad when it is complete. I have been busy with several craft projects, that just needed to be done and shipped out Monday. So better get to it. Wished I lived closer cause I would love to drop in on you at the scrapexpo. Sounds like fun.
    Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Hope you get it all done. Happy Birthday to your dear Mom. She is such a cutie.

  11. Wish I could go to the Expo with you!!! I'd love to see you doing demos...please have Cesar do a little video for us poor people who can't come play. I hope you get a few things done on your "have to" list so you can play with your "want to " list!!! It's COLD here in Yankeland...and snowing...can I say I don't miss it. I think the high today here in Indy was 24 and the low is supposed to be 11!!!! I want my Texas weather!!!!

  12. Jim, yard work! Really? We're so buried under snow it will be April before we see bare dirt and we are supposed to get another storm this week sometime. Enough is enough. Wish you were coming to Wisconsin to our Scrapbook expo. But I content myself in watching what you do on your blog. I had a great time putting the heart mini album together from your ustream class. Thanks for putting my photo on your pinterest board. Happy birthday to your mom. Theresa

  13. Jim, thanks for sharing the wonderful tags by Shari and Lori. Wish I was closer. Would love to see you demo at the expo and the retreat sounds like a fun time. Any plans to come to California this year?.

  14. Hey, Jim...sounds like you have your work cut out for you this weekend. Not me. It's our 37th wedding anniversary, and I'm being a bum! It snowed here yesterday, and it was the perfect day to cuddle up and watch movies, pop corn and order in pizza. So that's what we did! Lori's tags are gorgeous....try not to work too hard this weekend. Wish I lived nearby so I could pop over to meet you in real life.

  16. The tags from LoriCtoo are just gorgeous. You do wonderful work, Lori. Jim, I will be in Dallas next weekend and hope to surprise you at the expo with a big hug! I just have to talk my daughter-in-law into going with me.

    Love and hugs!
