Hey all, it's been a long time again. I've been very busy preparing for crops and classes. I started a WOTG club and that is going really well. I've wanted to use flip flaps now for a long time so I finally found the time (and ambition) to do it. I've received lots of compliments on the layout via facebook so I have written up instructions that I will offer to everyone for free. I would love to see everyone who takes the instructions and creates with them to post pictures of them for me to see. Once I get photos in mine I'll post those as well. I have orders for 6 kits so far, I am very happy with that so tomorrow I will get busy making those. Weekend crop retreat this weekend at the Best Western in Liverpool, looking forward to it very much. Enjoy :)

- Use scraps of pathfinding to fill in the leaves on the tree (I used a pencil and traced lightly the inside of the opening in the tree and then cut about an eighth of an inch bigger than where I traced. I then erased the pencil mark and glued it in place.

I am going to re-visit my CTMH business and do a re-fresh. I am starting by choosing a team name. I have some ideas, but I'll wait to see what the rest of the team thinks and go from there. My long term goal is to get to Convention in 2016. I have so many ideas, it's hard to focus on one thing. I know I need to do one thing at a time or I will get very overwhelmed. I am going to continue doing my SOTM club, and I am going to add to that a Card Stock club. I have a lot of ideas for classes, crops in Liverpool and Bridgewater twice a year will continue as well as a few day crops here in Greenfield. I'll update with my plans once I make them. Thanks so much to everyone of my customers for your continued support!
