Yea I'm a Winner over at Crafting for All Seasons and Winter Wonderland with my little Christmas Goody Box. I do so love Christmas. This is my first time winning a card challenge. I'm so excited. This has been a great day so far. It's my hubby's birthday so it's a day to celebrate.
This week I started on my Christmas stuff. So I made a little Christmas Goody Box. I measures 8 inches long by 2 1/4 inches on each side. Perfect for gift cards, goodies and jewelry. Any girl would love to get a gift in this little box.

June 24th Special Combined Basic/Beyond Basic Class

This was a special request class and it went very well. Both ladies did very nicely. It was quite interesting to see the difference in instruction interpretation and the difference between one using round tiles and the other square tiles. Way to go ladies.

June 10th Tangling Class

Sorry ladies for not getting these pictures posted sooner. For this class I had 3 enthusiastic ladies. They all did very well. Each of these ladies has their very own unique style of drawing. It is so much fun to see how each individual interprets the same instructions. Nicely done ladies.

New Entries for June

Some friends and I get together every summer to celebrate all of our birthdays together at one time. This year we will be going to Meyers Garden in Grand Rapids Michigan. I just got 12 new Lacy Sunshine Digi Stamps by Heather Valentine and couldn't wait to use them so I made gift bags for all my friends with them. This is one of them.
First bag is Hollywood Starlet:

Second bag is Hippy Chick:
Third bag is Eleanor Bookworm:

Forth bag is Wishes Granted: This Digi reminds me of an old TV show called I dream of Jeanie. I didn't get to enter this bag in anything yetbut since I have photo's of all the gift bags I made I just had to include it.

Top 3 Winner

My card For You From Me on the Whimsical Designs "Mix It Up" Challenge came in the Top Three.

Latest Class and Upcoming Class Info

A Tangled House Party

On 5/28/13 I was asked by some local ladies (ladies from my last class in Curtis) to give a tangling class at Marcella's home. This class was a little different as 3 of the ladies had already taken the basic class and one of them had not taken any. Well they all did beautifully. I made it a combined class and 3 of them did round tiles and the other one did a square tile. Worked out great. One of the ladies did a round and a square tile for the first tile. Here are some pictures of the ladies working on their tiles and the finished tile. It was interesting to see how the same sting and set of patterns look on a round and square tile at the same time. As before these were a fun bunch of ladies to work with and I am looking forward to future classes with them.For more photo's see my tab Zentangle Classes by PennyRae.
