Catching my breath . . .

Happy Monday Everyone!

WOW!  What a whirlwind week I've had this past week and I'm just now trying to 'catch my breath'!  If you follow my blog, you know I just got back home from another FABULOUS workshop at Joan's Gardens in North Liberty (outside of South Bend) Indiana.  I'm so happy to be able to go out a few days early and help Joan with whatever she needs help on to get ready for the workshop and see all the new products in her shop (and of course do some early shopping for myself)!  I have made so many wonderful new friends through attending Joan's workshops ... here's a photo of Friday's group (you can see Saturday/Sunday groups on Joan's blog post HERE).

Here are MY projects from this workshop.  
More photos & product information can be found on Joan's blog post HERE.

 Qualifying Challenges:
Challenges 4 Everyone - Anything Goes (NEW challenge blog)
Stampin' Sisters in Christ - Punches & Dies
The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes
 Qualifying Challenges:

Aren't these projects FABULOUS!  I plan on making more of the Easel Cards and Teabag Holders for my upcoming craft show in November ... I think they will be a HIT!!

Again ... ALL THE INFORMATION on the products used can be found on Joan's blog post HERE.  And you can purchase all items used through Joan's Gardens (see her store product listing in her right sidebar).

LOTS of ideas swirling around in my head so I'd better get started on 'SOMETHING' (or at least write it down so I don't forget!).  Have a FABULOUS week, thanks for stopping by and hope to see you again real soon!!
