New day...New adventure.....

Well let me start of by saying that "Bessie" is a live cow that is living on a farm not too far from here, she will at one point make it into my freezer, but first I need to go out and buy one to put her in, a big one. And to answer Susan's question- because he can, other than that I have no idea.

I did get the Tattered Angels sample done yesterday after all the cowmotion. Now I believe we only have 11 spots for this class and a lot of interest so please reserve your spot early. You will learn different techniques and have lots of fun. It will be a messy class so please wear old clothes.
If interested please call the store.

Holly Cow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok at what point do you talk to your better half about purchases?????? Jon and I do usally talk about such things, but lately not so much. I've been buying scrapping stuff, tools etc. and he's been buying guns, yes he's into fishing and shooting, nice inexpensive hobbies right ;) LOL!!!! Well he called me today that he bought something else, all I can say is moooooo. That's right no one can say "don't have a cow" to me because apparently I am a proud owner of one, yes that is right I have a cow. Now how many of you can say that?!?!? I'm afraid of what he might buy next week, although I do like bacon.

What a beautiful weekend!!!!!!!

The weather was great this holiday weekend, I hope you guys got out and enjoyed it like we did. Saturday Jon and I went shopping, he wanted a few shirts (not needed) and can we say we did our best to help the economy, I think he got 11 shirts and got rid of 2. We had fun, and yes I REALLY needed those new shoes ;) hey they have bling on them. Then we spent Sunday at a BBQ had a great time making new friends and spending time with old ones.

Well I didn't get all my samples done like I wanted but it was just too nice yesterday, and too hot in my craft room, so Cass I'm sorry but I was melting up there. But today is another day and it's not 85 degrees outside so it's not 90 in my room. But all the cards are done and will be at the store today, there are still a few spots and I'm sure we can always make room just give us a call

Well I hope everyone enjoys their short work week.
Until next time.

I love creativity.........

And when many creative minds get together it's always fun. We had a teachers meeting today and the ideas were flowing, we have classes on the calendar until September so keep your eyes out for the samples. We are having a "Backroom sale" you should get some deals then and we are going to have our first ever garage sale. Cathy's "start here" is going to be a fun filled day this time, Deb has a canvas and transparent class I can't wait to see.

Don't forget card class in June is the 18th and there are a few spots left, so call and save your spot. My Dad book is in June, I also have a Tattered Angels class you won't want to miss you will start this class with your own three bottles of glimmer mist, one stencil, and a whole package of their chipboard, your will leave with more knowledge, a cute book and all the leftovers it will be a very fun class, but be prepared to get messy. I also have "Old Detriot" book here are some pictures.

Dear hubby comes home today, well maybe tonight, his first flight has already been delayed so he might not make his second flight. :( He won't be fishing again for a while. But while he was gone I did get some stuff done, another one of Drew's projects and a couple of class samples The Father's Day Book and Cards for Junes class and the Detroit book I still need to take pictures for that one.

Here's the Father Book, while the front says dad it could really go for any theme.

The Cards are at the store and there are still a few spots left for that class june 18th, the teachers are alternating this class so you get a variety of styles and techniques, we are hoping it proves to be a great learning experience for all.

Here's the second item for Drew's graduation I srill can't believe he is graduating, I'm not sure if it has hit me yet. His party is set all I have to order is the Sumo Wrestling suits, I'll call them this evening, right now his favorite things are the meatballs and the cotton candy machine.

This is very simple to make and we have everything in the store to do it.

Thanks for reading.

She told me today I needed to blog so here I am me it is tacking everything I have in me not to end this post right now, and say ok I blogged. Do you think she'd let me get away with that?????? Well maybe. I do have some more projects in the store but don't have the photos downloaded yet. Father's Day is around the corner and I have a book at the store to celebrate him. also have no idea what I just did to the font. My Old Detroit should be in the store tomorrow or Thursday I still need to do the cover for that one and take pictures. I'm working on my cards for Junes card class.

One down, too many more to go........

Well graduation is one month from today and I am sooooo NOT ready. I thought that instead of doing one big book I would do many little projects, well one is done, I have three more to do. This one I think is my favorite because Drew thinks it is cool. I still need to sit down and talk to him and get the info to journal on the sheers from Maya Road, but other than that it's done.

Just so you know I will be teaching a simular class at the store call for info I think it's on May 20th, you will be able to pick out your school color and male or female, while it is not just like this one it is simular and we are silver leafing it, it's very cool and there is a sample in the store.

Well I guess I should go find my desk and work on my next project. Until next time.

I just want to take a moment to thank all the wonderful customers that we have at Paper Tales, you guys are awesome!!!!!!!! Unfortunately we did not take a picture of the line outside for Kate (sorry) it was a wonderful day. Colorful cardstock was going like crazy and I'm guessing by how fast the glimmer mist was moving alot of thing will be glitzy, I do want to see what you guys do with it, I don't want it just to be sitting on the shelf. I must say you guys truely made it a special day for us and we appreciate each and everyone of you. I also want to thank Linda Mason for staying the day and helping out with the make and takes she was quite a trooper, and a great friend.

Thank you everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!
