We are nearly half way through the first month of the new year - and today is the twelfth of the month. If you want to do the "12 on the 12" project again this year, it's time to take your photos. I may make another attempt - I fizzled pretty quickly last year...
We are just about a month away from Valentine's Day and while transferring files to my new computer I came across some of my information about making special Valentine's Day cookies. I thought I'd share a LINK back to the original post. I used stencils cut from Martha Stewart Crafts Cricut Cake cartridges (the cake cartridges work on all machines and the Martha Stewart designs are wonderful).
The designs are drawn with special food color markers. They may not be available at a local shop so this will give you time to order online if you'd like to try doing these. When I made the cookies I paid over $20 for the markers but you can find them on Amazon for much less.
Here is a link to the Amazon listings - Ateco Marker Style Food Color Kit

I recently mentioned that I have been taking some classes with Lain Ehmann. I am really excited about the month long Layout a Day program that will be starting February 1st. The theme for LOAD 213 is Scrap Happier and you can get more information HERE. The group is almost full so don't miss the chance if you have been thinking about signing up.
Lain also offers free monthly "scrapinars" that cover a wide variety of interesting topics. If you can't make the live class, you can watch the replay for a short time after the session (but only if you have preregistered). These classes are so full of great information that Lain also makes the archives available for a low price. You can read about all of the different classes HERE.
Right now she has a special deal to purchase individual classes for $7 each and a super special deal for all 9 classes for just $37 (just a bit over $4 each!). Some of the topics of the scrapinars include:
Take Amazing Project Photos with Nichol Magouirk
Get You Color On: Copic Coloring with Cara Miller
Washi Tape Wahoo with Monica Bradford
Getting Organized for Project Life with Jennifer Woodbury
plus five more classes...
Click here to view more details This deal is good until January 31, 2013.
I hope you have something fun planned for the weekend and that you are staying healthy. My Dad has been discharged from the hospital and is back in the skilled nursing area of his retirement community. I'll be heading south to spend some time with him next week. I hope to have time to do some projects this weekend - it's fine to just leave the Christmas things up a while longer, right?!
