I've had a pretty easy summer, what with a 2 week vacation to Thailand and 1 week spent camping in Door County, so I felt a little guilty and extravagant sneaking off for another little mini getaway to Sturgeon Bay here this week to meet up with my "old" college roommates.  We figured that a 25 year anniversary required a little reconnecting.  It was so nice to see them again…..so many tales and experiences to share and it was such a delight.  These feet have traveled many different paths in the past 25 years, some smooth roads and a few rocky ones but so glad our paths crossed back then at UW-Oshkosh and again this week.  We've vowed to meet up again much sooner than another 25 years. 


My guilt stemmed, in part, as I had tons of things to clean and catch up on and this was ONE of them.  (Ella's been at Girls Scout Day camp so I've had the studio and house all to myself for much of the day… so part of my mind was nagging me to work, work work and not to play play play) So, I did try to stay focused today and not allow anything to interfere.   This is a video was from my NOVEMBER 2016 Hostess Club.  I sent out the cardstock packets and directions months ago to my ladies but I hadn't actually edited my video.  Here's the "video Tutorial" for the card.  This card was adapted from a card shared by my upline Connie Tumm. 

Hostess Club Nov 1 - Totally Trees


Totally cute, hey?  A few of the items that I used here have been retired….but mark your calendars for Aug 25th & 26th for my Holiday Catalog Kick-off and Rummage sale.  You may very well find those items in my sale stuff.  I'm cleaning out the garage and will be marking them down even further!  Winter is coming and I need a spot to park the car…
