Hope all your holidays were wonderful and you are all looking forward to a bright and joyous brand new year. We hope you will join us in our classes that we have on tap. You will get a run down in just a minute. First to let you know that Jessica Hollowell is doing very well. She still gets very tired, but is receiving visitors for a short amount of time and her classes are suspended until further notice. Get well Jessica.
Let us pray for a happy, peaceful and prosperous New Year and for those of you with family and friends in the military, let us all keep them and their safety in our prayers daily. Love all our military.
I have to tell you about the classes this weekend, Carol Hoesly is doing the most fabulous class. She is teaching how to STAMP (not paper) backgrounds using 1-3 different stamps using different colors of ink; then when the backgrounds are dry making gorgeous cards out of the backgrounds. This truly is a class you don't want to miss. It is $45 and is Saturday, January 21 from 10:30 - 2:30, and it is like getting two classes in one. Samples are in the shop. Then Lori Lai is doing her first class of the year on Sunday, 12:15-4:30, $50. Once again I cannot give you a description of the class because Lori hasn't told me what she is doing and she hasn't sent any samples; but we do know that Lori does amazing things with paper from weaving to making the most unique cards that you would be proud to send if you can make yourself send them--most times they are so beautiful you don't want to send them out.
I would like to have you all look at the blog at least each week to see what is going on, because sometimes the emails just don't get out--our blogspot is www.karen-stampinheart.blogspot.com

The class is $45 and that includes the Travel Suitcase and all the papers, you just need to bring pictures (if you want), your adhesive, scissors. This promises to be a wonderful class.
February 5: Ruth Shapiro will be doing a Jewelry etching class, the information is following: Metal etching is an easy way to add texture, words,and pictures to a piece of metal. In this introductory workshop, learn how to etch on copper and brass. The workshop will include a handout and all supplies and materials and pre-cut copper/brass shapes that can be used to make a finished piece or save as samples. Etched pieces can be used to make jewelry, book plates, frames, etc. No experience with metal working is necessary.
You should plan to have fun and get messy! Please wear old clothes and/or an apron, and wear closed- toe shoes in case of spills. If you need magnifiers for close-up work, please bring them along. If you have a favorite rubber stamp, bring that, too. Please note that this is a technique that you will definitely be able to duplicate at home with a very minimal amount of tools and supplies.
