And on top of that we are closing on our house this week (hopefully... fingers crossed!)

cute huh? I cut them out of a book I bought at Goodwill. They aren't acid free but they are cool and vintagy and perfect for ATCs. And then as I was cutting I thought. HEY! I could cut these in 4 inches and string them up somehow and use them for decoration.... so that is an idea I'm going to try to store in my head for when Christmas comes closer. And then I also want to play around with the piece of paper leftover:How cool would these be if you sprayed them with glimmer mist and put them on a scrapbook page? Another idea to try....
And finally I've been slowly packing for the big move to our new house. We close next Friday!
I hope to make it back to the blog sometime this week. But next week expect sneak peeks of the new classes. And if you live in Richmond mark your calendars for class kick off on Saturday November 21st!!

Here is a 5x7 mini album I'm working on for my pictures from Rhode Island...
Really I'm procrastinating.. I should be working on class ideas but instead I am creating whole new books...and staying up all night to work on them... that's bad right??
Ok... time for sleep....

Classes: I have 3 classes for next quarter that I need to finish samples for. Class Kickoff is November 21st but if you are lucky I might post a couple sneak peeks
Christmas Wreath: Linda (from Craftaholics Anonymous) and a couple other friends and I are getting together later this week to make Christmas wreaths. Our inspiration is this Halloween wreath I found over at the Sassafrass Lass blog.
My nametag: I've been meaning to fix this nametag for the longest time:
I think it needs a huge layered flower - made with the making memories slice of course! We shall see how it works out!!
And on unrelated note: I went into work early today to work on some class stuff. However I got distracted by all the cute minibooks that customers and employees made as part of October's Crafting Support for the Community. Finishing touches were being added and then they were being donated to cancer patients at St Francis. Here are a couple pictures: And here are a few pictures of the one I made:And if you want to see my favorite minibook you should check out the other Melissa's book ...seriously fantastic...

Me in 1984 - with my doll Cindy (named after Cindy Lauper of course!) - it looks like Cindy got a little too close to that electrical outlet - FYI Cindy's hair was always like that - it wasn't a halloween costume!!
Me in 1992 as a witch
Me, my sister Danielle, and my best friend Carey in 1993 - I told you a clown costume would pop up again - I'm pretty sure I wore that costume for several years. - My mom used to make our costumes - notice how Danielle's costume is way cuter and has a matching bag ... hmm... and her makeup is way cuter too... nice mom ....nice
And if you are interested...look for a post later with pictures of me when I was little in costume... and if you aren't interested... check back tomorrow when hopefully I'll have something else crafty to post!
