Cards I made over the weekend

The Cricut class on Saturday reminded me that my son and daughter-in-law have an anniversary coming up and I have a new neighor buiding a house that is very nice and visible from my house ( we are on a hill and look down on his place).  So I put together a couple of cards using Magnolia stamps, Squigglefly downloaded image and, of course, my copics!!

We really did seem to have a great time.  Thank you Gina and Lauri for driving all the way down from Flagstaff.  Thank you, Julie, for representing Cottonwood.
I am hopeful that the word will spread about the Cornville Cricut Classes and I can make more new friends. We covered the basics and I even learned a few things since I always use the Design Studio program and tend to ignore some of the basic funtions of the machine.

The next class will be held on Saturday, October 30th at 1PM.  We will cover additional info on the basics as well as cutting other materials such as vinyl.

Cricut Classes Begin In Cornville Arizona

The first Cricut class will be geared for beginners, but we can proceed rather quickly if the students have some backround in using their machines.  We will go over paper, settings and overall understanding of the manual and cartridges and do hands on to make a card or 2.
The class will be at 2105 Sugarloaf Rd in Cornville on September 25th at 1PM.  Please call me at 928-649-8880 or email cornvillcountrycrafts@gmail for directions and what to bring. The cost of the class is 15.00 dollars, cash or check, please. 
the space will be limited so hurry and let me know if you are interested.  I look forward to meeting some mighty crafty ladies who live in Northern Arizona and have been waiting for the chance to meet others who share their passion!

Going to Vancouver in 5 days!

I am spending Labor Day weekend getting ready for what looks to be a fantastic experience.  My kids (Will and his gorgeous wife Wibke)  decided that since we were not together for my husband, Ray's, birthday and Tiffany and my birthdays are in a few weeks (Sept 20 and 21st) they would treat us all to a week's vacation at Whistler in Vancouver, Canada.  Ray and I are flying from Phoenix to Seattle on Thurs Sept 9th and they are flying to Seattle from San Diego on that day at around that same time.  We will all meet (hopefully we don't get stuck when we change planes in Las Vegas), then they rented a car for all 6 of us to drive to Canada.  They rented a house there, how exciting.  I will get to be with all of them and Sandy and my brother are taking turns at house and petsitting for us  us while we are gone.  We never get to go anywhere together without their help because of the dogs, cat, garden ect.  This is so special!!  Will wanted us to go on the ride that takes you down the mountain in a harness on a suspension rope( don't have a clue what it is called) but if he really wants to surprise me, I have always admired hot air balloons and a ride in one would be a dream come true.  But if not, the trip alone is enough.  I have the hot air balloon ride on my bucket list and hoefully I have a few more good years left!!  I will pack a few markers and paper with images to relax with when I have down time!!
