I am spending the weekend getting ready for upcoming classes I am teaching at NESC.
This is for my "Daytime Scrapping" class in February. You can catch the details on the NESC calendar.
And later this month I am teaching Disney Autogragh Book class.
Looks like another storm is a-brewin' and I'll be indoors while we get 8"-12" of snow by tomorrow. But I have plenty to keep me busy.

These stem from a page kit from Sarah Milne of Scenic Route. She was teaching a class back in September at the CKC Convetion in Hartford. Vanna & I were her TA's. She was so thoughtful. For all of our hard work, she rewarded us with this lovely class kit! Three more layouts...DONE! (I am ahead one layout for the month...woohoo me!)

My friend Debbie, a teacher at NESC created these pages last year for some of her classes. I just adore her work!
Here are a couple more:My hope for tomorrow is to get photos on them, some journaling & Wa La!
I inadvertently left out my DEAR FRIEND Vanessa's name from my earlier post. Vanna, if you are reading this blog, PLEASE FORGIVE ME! Vanna was one of the friends I cropped with at NESC today. :)

We started out the year by re-arranging Andrew's room. "Santa" brought him a brand new desk, one that can accommodate his computer and still give him some homework room. In order to fit all of the furniture in, we had to move his bed and bookshelf around and put the desk in a different corner from the original. But everyone seems happy with the new configuration and hopefully this will help Andrew keep his things in order. We shall see...
Next, I have been hard at work creating new designs for Scrap Can Do! Some late nights & some early mornings have been the only times when I have had opportunity to work (considering I have my full-time gig at NESC and managing things here at home.) And despite my lack of sleep, I have managed to create a couple of cute new mini albums. Vanessa & I will be updating our site, newsletter and Etsy sites early next week. Check things out when you get a chance.
Another goal for me this year is to scrap 365 layouts, one for each day of the year. I have set aside a bit of time tomorrow to start that goal and my hope is to get 12 layouts completed. I'll let you know how that turns out. I also have a full plate this month, since I am teaching a few classes and have a lot of design work to get done. I think it would be fun to post some of my designs here on my blog so you can follow along with what I am up to. If you want to see, be sure to check back often!
To all of my family & friends, have a happy, safe and healthy new year! Much love! xoxxoxox
