Hi there! I’ve been busy getting ready for my demonstrations at the Queen’s County Fair in Gagetown this coming week. I’ll be demonstrating super fun cards and gift items Sept. 16th & 17th from 7-9pm, and Saturday the 18th from 4-6pm. I have been excited about this and I can’t wait to show you all the goodies I’ve been making for my display table! I’ll reveal them here on the days of the fair. Also, I’ve been creating wonderful classes – mostly with Christmas in mind – so that we can all get ahead start on our holiday cards and presents. I’ve still got more classes in the works, so you’ll want to check my Calendar of Events often. I would love to see you at one of my classes – they’re a ton of fun, if I do say so myself!
Here’s some fun projects I’ve been making recently:
We live on a VERY scenic route, along the Saint John River, making it perfect for those who love to drive motorcycles – and trust me, LOTS go past our way during the summer and autumn months. There is a wonderful farm stand across the street that lets me sell my stamped creations and these are two of the candles I took over. There are also coordinating motorcycle cards, domino pins and notepads – ideal as a Christmas gift or stocking stuffer for the motorcycle lover in your life!
I FINALLY bought a Simply Adorned Charm and Chain and love love love love LOVE it!
The charms work like lockets so that you can open them and add your own personalized insert. You can create an insert to match any occasion, any mood or even any style or colour of clothing you might want to wear! Or you can also insert your favourite photos.
The charms feature tempered glass…bevelled on the front and flat on the back…as well as a lobster clasp for fastening it to the chains. The charms are nickel plated and come in several different sizes. The largest size, which is 1 1/2″ x 2″, is the perfect size to make a beautiful Christmas ornament for that special someone or for a cherished keepsake.
The necklace chains come in 2 different lengths and feature a toggle clasp. The 8″ bracelet and the necklace chains are made of stainless steel to coordinate with the finish of the charms.
My dear friend and downline, Rhonda, has some Simply Adorned jewellery and between seeing her creations – as well as the Simply Adorned jewellery shown at convention – I was sold. What took me so long to get these???? Did I mention that I LOVE them? Wayyy tooooo much FUN! I can’t wait to make some more inserts (autumn, Halloween, Christmas, vintage….).
When you purchase your charm and chain through me – either on my online store or as a regular order – and I will include your first 3 charm inserts, with my compliments!
I received lots of AMAZING hand stamped cards for my (40th!) birthday last month (THANKS everyone!) and I just had to share them with you! I’ll be posting some more cards I received over the next few days. Lots of talented women out there, lemme tells ya!
