Latest creations

I have just finished 3 school days albums for a customer and started playing around with some stamped images from some of the new stamp sets in Inspiration Avenue that Julie, my up-line angel sent me. Thanks Julie! It's always fun when you get new stamp sets because it just gets those creative juices flowing. I also plugged away for a few days getting together a card order of 40 birthday cards for a customer. I ended up using my stash of scraps for cards that I organize by sizes small, medium and large. Wow, that was so fun! So, I will get slide shows of both my Christmas designs I just did and the birthday cards made from scraps probably tomorrow. The bus is going to be here any minute so no time to add the pictures. Sorry. Check tomorrow or the next day!

What's changing at the studio!

The last 2 months have been a whirlwind with starting a new job and adjusting to life working outside of the home. I knew that I spent most of my waking moments in the studio before making cards, scrapbooks or doing stuff like this for my business but you don't realize how much time you put into things until you don't have that time available anymore. I love making things for people and I love having people over to make things so it's not something I am going to just give up. I have invested the last 3 years of my life to growing my business and I love it! But I did have to come up with a way to balance my life with new job, family and business without business taking every moment of my free time. So, what I am going to do is combine all the little classes I was having into one class called Project Playground. Project Playground will take place on one weekend day and one weeknight a month. I will several projects for you to choose from. You will be able to come choose your project or projects and pay for what you make. The projects will be anything from mini albums to specialty cards and lots of other paper crafting projects. The slideshow is a representation of the projects that are currently available. If there is a project you see that you really want to do, you may reserve it for one upcoming project playground day or ask about purchasing the kit to do complete on your own. When a project is out of supplies, that's it so it is a first come first serve kind of thing. I will only be making enough supplies for a project with what I have. If it is wildly popular, I can always re-stock the supplies for a future Project Playground day. Sept Project Playground days and times are as follows: Thurs, Sept 17th 7pm or Sat, Sept 26th 1pm-5pm. The daytime Project Playgrounds will be more flexible as you can come and start your project anytime within the open time frame. All my projects will have an approximate time it will take on it so you can know ahead of time if you will have time to do another project, etc.
My card buffets will continue on the third Sunday afternoons of the month and my crop club is on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays from 3pm-9pm. Email me for more information on anything happening at the studio! janine@coloradorobertsons.com
