It’s Technique Tuesday! A technique does not look like much of anything without the right ink. So for today I have found a chart for you with what ink to use when. If you have any questions please contact me.
It’s Management Monday! There is plenty going on at the Red Door.
This Saturday the 19th is a Valentine’s Favors Class. If you have not received the invitation please let me know. They went out this weekend.
On the 26th is the Farmers’ Market. Stop by the market and pick up some fresh produce and a greeting card or favor for Valentine’s Day. I will be there at the park (across from AM/PM) in 29 Palms from 8-1.
Also on the 26th is the Organization Class. Come on out on Saturday, January 26 from 4-7:30 pm! We will be creating several accent pieces for cards so you can get organized for the new year. Cost is $20 and you will create 6 card bases with backgrounds with a coordinating “sticker” sheet of multiple and varying sentiments. Please remember no kids, no hubbies, and no mess to clean up. Please contact me to reserve your seat and for me to cut for you no later than Wednesday, January 23rd at 7:30 pm. See you on the 26th!

It’s Sabbath Sunday! Today I am breaking up my routine by entertaining one of my daughter’s friends. Friends are important in every stage of life. How do you keep up with friends? Do you have a certain day that you set aside to do lunch or make plans?
It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward! Have you ever read the book The Tipping Point? It talks about how one person doing one small thing can start a trend which changes an entire town. When I read this many years ago I decided to start looking at things with the perspective of making impact. So every decision I make gets run through my mission statement if you want to call it that. Does this make impact? It doesn’t have to be a big impact, but it needs to make one.
Do you have a filter that you run your decisions through?
When I woke up and started to scroll through I found this quote that I will leave you with. It is by Desmond Tutu.
“Do your little bit of good where you are; it is those little bits of good put all together that overwhelm the world.”
Here’s to making this place a better one than the one I found one pebble at a time.
It’s Tutorial Thursday! While I don’t have a new card to show you, I do have a new kit. Today’s project is from the Sale-A-Bration brochure and is called the Precious Parcel Card Kit. There are 8 cards to be created easily and are cute as anything. They also fit nicely in the envelopes provided in the kit.
It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Do you remember me saying that you need to look at your products upside down, sideways, and backwards to get the most use out of them? Well today I am going to show you how to use the Tailored Punch sideways and create a dove tail. Remember to take a minute when you are creating to look at your products and see what else they can become.
It’s Management Monday and if you don’t know it’s Card Class Week! You still have a few chances to RSVP for class! You have until tonight at 7:30 pm to RSVP for Thursday’s Yucca Valley session and until Wednesday night at 7:30 pm for Saturdays’.

Saturday, January 19 for Valentine’s favors
Saturday, January 22 for Betty’s Card Class (different cards from this week)
Saturday, January 26 for the Farmers’ Market and the Organization Class

It’s Sabbath Sunday! If crafting truly is therapy for you (like it is for me) when was the last time you just created? You didn’t sit down to create a card that you needed to mail. When was the last time you sat down and just allowed your mind to create? It wasn’t for a purpose except to just create.
It’s Sale Saturday and the Sale-A-Bration has begun! Are you part of it? Do you have your copy of the new catalogs?
If you don’t please contact me so I can get them to you.
On top of the new Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration I have a couple of promotions of my own.
First…the paper and/or ribbon shares. Do you want every piece of every new Designer Series Paper? Are you more of a ribbon fan? Then take a look at the new shares and let me know how many you would like.
And last, but not least, the Big Shot Promotion. If you already have the Big Shot you can still take advantage of this promotion. This is good for someone with a large wishlist or a crafter wanting the Big Shot.
If you would like to order online please use host code ZKCAKSPB. This code will be good through Monday night at 7:30 pm. If you prefer to order in person please contact me via email, text, message, phone, or drop in on Monday during Open Times (10:30-12:30 or 5:30-7:30).
