Alive and Kickin' In Texas! Ustream Tonight!

Good Morning Everybody!

WOW!  Sorry!  I've been out of the blog loop for awhile!  As you may know I went camping last Friday and had a blast!  Sunday morning I woke to thunder and rain!  I didn't know I could pull a tent down so fast!  I moved like I was 17 again!  LOL!  The rain started out slowish and then went into a full gully washer.  What took us hours to put up, took us exactly 30 minutes to take down and toss into the car.  So, the tent is drying out in the barn and there are still sacks of stuff in various places around the house that need to be cleared away, but it was so worth it!  Too much fun to get away and be in nature with my craft supplies!

I've been finishing up the samples for my class in July at the Crafty Scrapper in Waxahachie, Texas.  With that done I can start the CHA samples.  Got to start cracking!  Back to the Crafty Scrapper...  We will do a new album which I call the Roosevelt Album and the Gent's Writing Desk I did for Tim's Alterations area in the Sizzix booth at CHA in January.   I never wrote the pattern on the desk, so, I had to recreate it and write it down this time!  DONE!  It's so easy to make...Really!  Honestly!  Here are the finished pictures even though they are not the best photos I've ever taken!  LOL!

Now on to Ustream....

Tonight we will finish up the Gentleman's Satchel on Ustream!   Come by at 7:00 p.m. Central Time as we do the interior book portion of the satchel.  It's going to be fun!  I will record for my friends who can't make it...
