Beautiful Things

Linked up at – www.joyinourhome.com

I have been thinking about the purpose of my blog for a while now and I think I have come up with an adequate theme – Beautiful ThingsI know this is just a tweak on another Pin going around on Pinterest that says –

“I just want to make Beautiful Things even if nobody cares”

I have been saying this phrase to myself for a while now because I love creating beautiful things. I have wondered if it mattered and if anyone did care but then I realized that there is a purpose to my making of these things – I make them for others to share with them how much I care!!

So things that I share here are my blog are ways that I have found to make beautiful things to show others I care! I hope that you will join me and explore avenues for you to show your love & care for others by making your own kind of beautiful things!!

Doodlebug Card Class

I am so sad and sorry that I have not posted in such a very long time – but I am still here! I just got a little bit, ok I admit it, a lot involved with preparing for and actually enjoying the Holiday Season!!

Years ago I was a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator and as such I taught classes out of my home once a month for my customers! Thoroughly loved it but then I got detoured a bit with child # 6 and volunteering at school and in the PTA so I quit.  I have taught 2 or 3 classes since then for church groups but nothing like what I am about to do this month!  I am so excited to be teaching 2 nights of a Doodlebug Card class and the best part for me is that both nights are completely booked up, full! So I just wanted to share the 4 cards we will be making at this class – a teaser perhaps to the attendees and maybe just ideas to fuel your own creativity!!

Here are pics of the 4 cards we will make:
