New Moon Acrylic Frames for Sale

I created New Moon Acrylic Blocks for the Holiday Boutique I was in earlier this month and have a few left over that I thought I would post here for those interested.  There are 10-12 left so if your interested in seeing them stop by Roberts in Sandy tomorrow between 9-5 or Jan 5-7th between 3-9pm and I would be happy to show them to you.  I am asking $5.00 a Block.  They sit nicely on a desk or since they have a magnetic back can be put on a fridge or locker.  Hope everyone has a Happy & Safe New Year our family will be celebrating with Movie Marathons & a Mega Junk Food Fest!   Happy 2010 Everyone hope to see many of you at one of our future Retreats.

*********Roberts Night Owl Sale*********************

Well its that time of year and we are all on tight budgets.  If there are some last minute items you still need to complete your Christmas Shopping think about stopping by the Sandy Store to enjoy some of the bargains.  Cricut Fans will not be disappointed-great savings on cartridges & machines.  The Jar Candles will all be on sale and of course its the blowout event for those Christmas Decorations.  The special discount prices are valid December 22 & 23 from the hours of 9PM to Midnight.  So if your feeling a little restless or your up anyways: sewing, baking, wrapping, scrapbooking your fingers to the bone-take a break and pick yourself up something fun for Santa to add to your stocking.  Have a Happy Holiday Season and a Very Merry Christmas.

Who Farkled????

Well ladies this question might take the cake!  I'm laughing now just thinking about how easily the question wound up in conversations had on our December 4-6 Retreat.  As you can see our Birthday Retreat was alot of FUN even with the Farkling.  We decorated party hats, had CAKE & ICE CREAM, watched what else but TWILIGHT (yes again!) scrapbooked, shared gifts and snacked on NEW MOON candy.  We ate, we played, we slept (well not much) and can't wait to come back again.  This clever group even helped me realize we have a four day weekend coming up that would be perfect for our next Scrapbooking Getaway.  Thank you for the wonderful Birthday Gifts-you ladies were so THOUGHTFUL and FUN.  As you can see there were 5 of us with December Birthdays and we enjoyed sharing the Party together.  Everyone got to take home a shirtless Edward (even Grandma thought he was cute). and although lots of our homes received a few inches of SNOW we had no trouble getting in & out of Eureka.  I have always liked having a December Birthday and you ladies: Colleen, Catherine, Sara, Joyce, LeAnn, Ruth, Jennifer, Wendy, Grandma & Deanne made it extra special this year.   Thanks again......

Thanks to the very smart ladies attending our December Retreat we have discovered that our  January Retreat listed as Jan 15-17 falls  right before a Holiday: Martin Luther King, Jr Day.  Since this is a Federal Holiday many of us have a four day weekend to work with.  For anyone wishing to stay thru Monday we will add three more meals and an additional nights stay at the Bed & Breakfast.  The cost for an additional day will be posted next week.  Our December ladies have already spoken for 6 spots so we have 8 seats available.  For the new year we will have padded folding chairs for each person (no more wood chairs) and one trash can per person (no sharing).  Hope this makes our weekends even more enjoyable.  We will also have 3 Cricut Expression Machines and one personal Cricut available for use.  Let's get the new year started with some fun and join us for a fantastic weekend!  Free Class options & Pictures of Mini Classes offered will be loaded before Christmas.  We have also had a Private group request the February Weekend previously posted February 26-28th.  so it is now FULL & CLOSED.  To accomadate those interested in attending in February we will add another weekend February 19-21st.  Please let us know ASAP if you are interested in January or February as Dates are filling up quickly.

New Projects

This year has flown by so fast I can hardly believe we are getting ready for Christmas already!!!  I haven't had a lot time to create and design this year.   With working at Roberts, getting this Retreat business off and running, teaching and designing for store events its been a little crazy.  But my first love will always be playing with paper and coming up with new projects & designs.  I have a few pictured here that should be pretty easy to duplicate.  The two cards are from my Layering Workshop were we talked about how to organize your Cricut mat for layering and all of the different styles of layering the different Cricut cartridges contain.  Hope you like the cards I used Mickey & Friends cartridge to get Goofy (I put an elf hat from Paper Doll Dress Up to make him more festive.)  The Tree is from the Christmas Noel cartridge (The T in Greetings looks like an F but that's only because the dot for the I is attached.)  The page layouts are works in progress but I thought they would be pretty simple to duplicate.  The gingerbread housecame from the My Community Cartridge.  This layout still needs a Title-I'm open to suggestions????  My husband's choice is Walking in a Winter Wonderland (I like it but it seems to long to Cricut cut)  My Christmas mini album is made of Chipboard and is from a Class I taught last year.  I have tons of supplies left so I may do another class on this one in the future.  I am still working on my NEW MOON album and will post pictures as soon as its finished.  I will also post pictures of my "Cards in a Box" from this years Holiday Boutique next week.  I will sell these up thru Christmas for $5.00 a set.  My snowman head is also in progress and will be a class in January's Retreat.  I will also be selling those to anyone wanting one in January.  Hope we can all find some time to work on a fun project this holiday. I really believe the homemade gifts are the best.    I am looking forward to the holidays this year I hope all of you are as well.
