How is it already almost the end of September? My kids are completing this first week of school (we had a late start here) and I think we are finally getting into a routine. 3 months is a long time for kids to be out of school, and a long time for this mom to have them home everyday, 24hrs a day, 7 days a week! But I'll be honest the house during the day is so quiet now (not that I am complaing or anything;).
Not having them around has left me with some much needed creative time and I had so much fun working with Studio Calico's October Kit's. Reveal day is tomorrow so I thought I would pop in here with a few sneaks of what is to come.
The Card Kit is full of fabulous patterns, fun flair, an awesome stamp set and a super cute metal die set (this esp[ecially made me happy)
Here's a peek at what I created for the October Gallery:
Now for one of my favourites parts of a new month and new realease-the new stamps! There are 4 add on stamps again this month and I got the chance to work with 2 of them.
Now get this, both of these cards were created using the same awesome stamp set by Life.Love.Paper and Studio Calico.Talk about adorable and versitile!
This one is a sneak at the super cute and "spooky" Halloween stamp set, the creative genius behind this one is Marcy Penner of Hello Forever
There are lots of things happening in the Studio Calico Classroom and I couldn't be more excited about
There is something about fall and the approaching holiday season that makes me realize just how incredibly disorganized I am. Now I have always been a sort of last minute person as far as getting things done and usually relied on my brain for remembering appts etc. For the most part it worked for me, although drove my husband nuts. However I have been know to scribble down notes on random pieces of paper and then promptly loose them:( And the older I get the more I find I forget things. With my kids now 15, 11 and 7 I guess I still can't claim baby brain,lol. So with school now started up again and three children all in sports and activities, plus keeping track of things my husband and I have going on made me realize that I need some sort of solid system. I am definitely a paper and pen type of person. My iphone calendar will just not cut it, I am now leaping into the world of personal planners!
So I am thrilled that Marcy Penner is offering the Agenda Class in the Studio Calico Classroom. You can enrollment is open in this class until September 30th. There is already so much wonderful info on the message boards and Marcy is a master of organization. I can not wait to recieve the planner I ordered and I will be sure to update here when it comes and how I am using it.
I'll be back tomorrow with the full reveal of my cards and some of my must have products for this month!
