It’s OnStage this week.

It’s Management Monday!  This week is a short week here in 29 Palms.  I fly out on Tuesday night for OnStage.  What are you hoping I bring back or learn?

Next week is Card Class and then there is Thanksgiving!  What are you grateful for?

If you would like to order online please use host code P4RXRRHZ by Monday night at 9 pm.  If you prefer to order in person please contact me.

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,

Turkeys, leaves, and feeling grateful.

Well, it’s Thanksgiving Day in the States.  That means for a bunch of us that the turkey is in the oven or getting ready to be dunked in the huge vat of oil (in my house).  Whatever you do be safe, have fun, and if all else fails go sit at the kids’ table.  I hear they don’t discuss politics there. 🙂

It also means that I am reminded just how lucky I feel to have this job of taking care of all of you.  I am grateful for every single one of you.  Thank you for being a part of this Red Door Crafters’ Group.  What started out with eight of us has grown into something more than I ever could have imagined.  We are at over 300 now locally.  Yes, 300.  (Now you know why I talk fast and go to the gym all the time.  I’m trying to keep up with everyone.)  Thank you.  I love it and wouldn’t change it.

So for today I thought it would be appropriate to do a photo tutorial of the project.  Enjoy!

Stamp the background (yellow photo).

Then cut the dies out to create the negative image.

The larger photo is of the finished card.

(If you don’t like the indents that the die leaves on the cardstock then the precision base plate is needed.)

Thank you again for being a part of this group!

Happy Crafting!

Sundays are for rest…

So today I sit and type while still in my pajamas.  Life is good.  After running for about three weeks straight I am enjoying my day off.  A little rest is so sweet after not having much.  So today’s agenda is to catch up a bit and get ready for the sale this week as well as a whole bunch of stuff.

Here’s the funny part of the story.  You know you’ve been running too much when…you go the grocery store and forget the main item you went for.  I did a big trip going up and down the aisles.  Circle after circle of the store.  Cranberry sauce, check.  Crispy onion rings for green bean casserole, check.  Ingredients for pumpkin pie, check.  Turkey, turkey…TURKEY!  I forgot the turkey.  So today or tomorrow will be to get the turkey.  That is a first for me.

Now it’s time to finish my cup of tea and go back to finishing my grocery list of what else I forgot.

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,

Joni 🙂
