Sunday, February 24: 12:30 pm: Admit One Mini Book
The base is a Farmhouse mini loaded with adorably printed Bazzill papers, 7 Gypsies ephemera and ribbons. Throw in a few vintage pieces and you've created *Admit One*, a mini that could be used to remember a party, dinner with friends or a family get together.
Basic supplies is all that's needed to complete this mini. Everything else will be provided for you in this workshop.
PS: There is one page where you may need a score board (the mini size will do), but not necessary if you don't have one.
Kits are being put together today as I'm getting ready for some fun tomorrow!
This workshop is sold out.
a list of supplies for Sunday's *Admit One* workshop. As soon as I can get to For Keeps Sake (hopefully today) and go through the sample book, I'll be posting a list of supplies. Perhaps later today!
In the meantime, being snowed in yesterday was a good thing. Here's a couple of samples for upcoming workshops:

last night at CYI. It was fun to experiment with Wood Icing, checking out the difference between Gesso and Wood Icing and seeing how you can build up images with Wood Icing.
We colored, stenciled and generally played . . .
and planned for next month's CYI.
For those of you who asked last night, we did receive one shipment (our original order) from Creative Imaginations which included a few of the products Cheryl Mezzetti will be using in her classes on March 6 & 7.
We are expecting a HUGE second order before Cheryl's class. These workshops are going to be amazing!
So much going on! To make reservations for Cheryl's or Ken's classes contact

Onto more news about next month's CYI: We'll be working with twinchies and creating something wonderful! Stay tuned for more details and in the meantime, think about what color scheme you'd like to work with and start collecting papers, stamps, inks etc in your chosen color group.
What are twinchies? A tiny square that's 1.5" x 1.5". And we'll be creating lots of them to incorporate onto a canvas (or whatever you choose to showcase yours). Maybe a book cover instead of a canvas?
Here's a sample created by Dena Redfern:
Hope to see you soon
