my next workshop/demos at Creative Bag {April 26th}

Friday, April 13, 2012

I am going to be doing another workshop/demo at Creative Bag and you are invited to attend. It's on Thursday April 26th from 6:00 to 7:30pm in the Toronto store. The store will be closed at that time so you have to register to attend. The event is free but you have to RSVP by 24th so that we can provide seating for everyone ... and space will be limited. Anyone that would like to shop in the store after the event will be given a 10% discount off their entire purchase.

Creative Bag has just received some new products that I have been playing with and I can't wait to share with everyone.

I love the new stickers that you can design and personalize yourself on line ...

and I will show you some great project ideas using both the white and clear stickers.

The new online sticker program also allows you to design and personalize iron on transfers. Let's just say that my iron has been used more in the past couple of weeks than it has in three years! I can't wait to show you my canvas bags and bunting projects and share with you my tips and tricks for this amazing product.

... and if you have been following me on Pinterest lately you know that I have been pinning lots of ideas using bottles and jars ... that's because they have just received lots of different ones at Creative Bag. Can you tell I'm smiling as I write this? ... and I'll show you lots of ideas for how to use them for your next celebration/event. Do you like the Betty and Veronica stickers on the bottles pictured above? I created them on my home printer using the Creative Bag stickers and online design program! ... by the way ... I'm a "Betty".

You can RSVP me directly at if you are interested in attending on April 26th. I hope to see some of my local friends there!!

Hoppy Easter Monday

Monday, April 9, 2012

I hope that you had a wonderful Easter weekend. It's Easter Monday and my kids do not have school today ... which means I will be checking up on them every few hours to make sure that they are not eating candies and chocolate all day.

We spent a couple of days at the cottage this long weekend. It was the first time we've spent any time at the cottage since September and we all looked forward to getting away from the city for a couple of days.

We went for a walk on the beach Saturday afternoon ... it was a beautiful day and we can hardly wait for summer!
I hosted an Easter brunch on Sunday at the cottage and made little Easter loot bags for the kids. The bags are from Creative Bag, of course, and I did a quick post about them here.

The little chick with the letters were a last minute idea that I created using things at the cottage ... a dice, black checkers, K&Company glitter chipboard letters and some colourful Easter chicks. I used gel medium to glue them all together.

Have a wonderful day!
