It's the Season of Joy

It is that time of the year...life starts getting incredibly crazy. We try to absorb everything around us in one breath...vaguely impossible. But we do need to truly remember the blessings of the season, regardless of the countless distractions. It IS the season of joy. So many of you have been asking me about my newsletter. I do try my best to update my blog and I think that will be more effective than a monthly newsletter. In my blog you will find more frequent updates of my life journey, my inspiration, pieces of my creativity, and the events that show themselves up in my schedule. I know so many of you are not used to coming to visit here,but I really hope that you will all get used to it eventually. My schedule for November is well-booked and I love every bit of it. I just finished teaching my scarf class last Sunday to Coquitlam. I'm going to be doing a card making class in Coquitlam, again, this coming Sunday. We are using a set called Snow Swirled. You can find the samples posted on the left hand sidebar labelled Snow Swirled. Today I posted another 5 samples of Christmas cards from the set: Season of Joy. I've loved this set from the very beginning and I never get tired of it. I did a class with this set, making chocolate nugget box gift sets, last year. I will try to post them next time. I truly hope that during the busiest time of the year you will still have the time to stop and experience moments of true joy.

I did promise you to post some pictures from our store's awards night, but the professional photographer put the pictures on a disk. The pictures on there are of enormous resolution and I couldn't post them out yet. My professional secretary, my dearest daughter Liz, will try to find time and work out how to shrink them enough to put them up. I do have the pictures with me, though, so whoever comes over for classes and clubs, will have a chance to see them. We are all very impressed in how it turned out. Well, I finally have time off today. It's nice to have a cup of coffee without burning my tongue in the rush. Also, staying in my pajamas, enjoying some music, and being annoyed by my kids is surprisingly refreshing. I will be getting myself together again tomorrow to get all my classes ready for the coming weekend. This weekend I have a combination of classes for silk scarves and two different kinds of card classes. I haven't ever done this before; this is the first time with one class and so many things going on at once. I pray and hope that everything will go smoothly and that the ladies will enjoy themselves, being able to get enough help from me as well. I hope that you all have a wonderful long weekend and until next time, be blessed.

P.S. As you all know, I'm taking my December off from teaching and clubs, but orders are still welcome.
