Summer calendar time!

"Sweet Tweets"

matchbox perpetual calendar

I just finished a new calendar called Sweet Tweets! I used the 7 Gypsies paper line called Conservatory and it is just absolutely gorgeous if I should say so myself! I will be teaching this class at Mystic Paper on Saturday, July 30th 10:30-5:30. The class fee is a special summer price of $75.00 which includes all materials and a little extra! Each calendar will be one of a kind. I have a feeling that spaces will fill up rather quickly!

Call Mystic Paper today to schedule or if you have any questions please contact me at


Hugs, Shirley

"Back in the saddle again"

Hello my friend,
It has been a few weeks since my last update! I was on vacation for six days! I had a wonderful stay at Good Samaritan Hospital to remove a tooth abscess. The recovery has been very slow and I can only find comfort in making the good of such a terrible experience.
On a much happier note Katie bug's teacher sent me photo's of the art project taught with her class on May 5th. However, I cannot get them to download on my blog.
We made a refrigerator magnet which I called "Flower Face". The children were able to use their fine motor skills by tracing than cutting their hand prints and gluing them to the smashed soda can and the best part of all is decorating them with fun eyes, pom-pom nose, flower shaped scrapbook paper and gems.
I enjoy making these crafts with both and Allie and Katie's class. I look forward to all of the years of teaching crafts to child with or without special needs.
My favorite part of all is to see all the happy faces after they have made their special creation!
Have a great week!
