First a HUGE thank you to all of you who have helped us to replace Trevor’s wrecked gear!! Your generosity is overwhelming!

Costs for all of this hockey travel is continuing so I am scrambling to get some new projects up while still cranking on getting the backlog out!

Many of you love Steampunk but for some of you, not so much. Therefore, I am using the patterns for the upcoming steampunk series but making them fairy style with different papers and embellishments. Kits for the first project, the Pixie Portal is up in the shop as well as the complete series – The Fairy Realm – is also up.

Here is a sketch of the Pixie portal. I will be finishing the samples for this and the Steampunk Time Machine as soon as I get back from Wisconsin and Boston.



Those of you who are signed up for the Passport to Creativity event have already received this info via email, but I want to let the rest of you know.

Due to the unforeseen circumstances with my son and his hockey tryouts and the traveling involved, I am doing the planned passport event a bit differently. Instead of a 4 day weekend, I am doing a couple of mini events that are one full day in duration.
The first, the Pirate Ship, is scheduled for July 29th and the Campsite Birdhouse is scheduled for September 9th. These will be full Saturday classes with additional videos as needed. Just like the past event, these will be exclusive live events for those who purchase the kits.
Attendees will have access to the videos through the Paid Tutorial tab.
Patterns will be available after the event for those who just want the pattern.
Kits for these two mini events are currently up in the shop. I will be working on the samples for these projects as well  as soon as I am back home.

Lastly, as a thank you while I am gone this week, I will have a special going on. For every $10 spent through Sunday, July 9th, you will received a store credit of $1 that can be used on patterns and digital papers starting next week. So, if you spend $50, you will receive a $5 credit to use! These are not automated so it will be emailed to you. You just need to enter “Summer Credit” in the comment section of you order. the credit code will be sent to the email you have on file with my website.

Once again, I thank you all so much for your patience and support! I promise that I will not let you down and I work hard to make sure you are not disappointed  in these projects. I have been both touched and overwhelmed by the generosity of all of you.

Thank you!
