I've been published!

I arrived home this afternoon to a copy of "JUST CARDS" Summer 2007 with my hatsoff card published (T-2387) It is my first published card - thanks to good friend and Angel manager Paula Kay who is the hostess for our "I've Been Published Swap" in our local stamp club called eclectictARTs. I'm in good company, there are also cards from good friends Paula Kay, Shawn, Margaret, & Debra! We hit the jackpot with our "hat cards!"

"Tech Squad"

I am starting a monthly group at my home to help us all organize a file of techniques with directions posted on them. I am the world's worst for doing something once, thinking "I'll remember that!" and finding I don't "remember that!" when I want to duplicate the technique! Hopefully this group will help me, and you too!

Each time we meet, poki will have prepared 4 or 5 technique cards. We will make samples of those techniques to fit 3 x 5 index card with directions on the back. We will also create a completed project using products from The Angel Company (with one of our techniques!) Purchasing products from The Angel Company is encouraged but not required!

Because of the size of my work space, I am hosting 3 sessions all on the same day! You can choose your session each month, or RSVP for the same time each month! Session times: 9:00 - 11:30 a.m., 1:00 - 3:30 p.m., 5:30 - 8:00 p.m. Our first session will be on Wednesday, August 8, 2007. Please e-mail poki ( with your RSVP for the session of your choice!

Thanks to all my great friends who are also supportive customers! Our time at the Open House on July 11 was great fun!

I hope everyone enjoyed the time they spent at my house, and enjoyed the chance to play with "springdream" - the Level C hostess set that I had on the table. Mike helped me draw the winning ticket, after the last customer went home - and the winner is PAT A. from Salado! I will be calling you soon to discuss your prize! Stay tuned for more GIVE AWAYS in the future!

I talked about my "Tech Squad" yesterday with almost everyone I think. Details will follow in another post - keep checking back for them. I do know for sure that the first "Tech Squad" party will be on Wednesday, August 8 at poki's house. Stay tuned! More to come!!!

"Office on the Go"

My "Office on the Go" - a decorated DVD tin with a calendar and notepad inside - is one of the first projects I created after becoming an Angel (#3651) last February! I used one of my favorite paper collections - Rustic Chic - and added a Sizzix dragonfly on it! Kits available at

Butterflies are everywhere!

I am a "butterfly fanatic" - I photograph them everywhere I go! That's my way of "collecting!" (I'll post some of my "collection" later - )
I've been collecting butterfly stamps as well - over the last 4 + years I've collected almost every butterfly that TAC has ever made - I was so pleased that my favorite butterfly set - flutterby (T-1014, $10.95, pg 48 in 2007-08 catalogue) - is still in The Angel Company catalogue! I have used it so many times! And will continue to stamp with this Monarch-style butterfly!


and thus another PROJECT begins!
