I know February is a short month, but this is crazy...... it's already over. How can that be. I just attended a fabulous CTMH event in Seattle. I've set a goal to post weekly!!!! so now my friends, if you don't hear from me - let me know - hold me accountable. :-)Here's a recap of February. Pictures will follow... not saying when, but I will post ASAP.
1. Februrary 1 - I was recovering from a fundraiser for our church GEMS girls' club. I'm the club coordinator and have 4 counselors who are a great support. We had a Baked Potato Bar and Chili plus Bunko Family Fun Night - raised $955. Whooo Hoooo! Thanks to everyone who helped put the FUN in FUNdraising
2. February 8- Traveled to Abbotsford with 12 GEMS girls/moms/grandmas/mentors to the "We Walk Tour" A praise and worship, games and more event with a challenge to girls in grades 1-8 to be who God created them to be. Micah 6:8: "....what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God." 3. February 14-16- Attended Creative University at Camp Lutherhaven on Lake Couer d'Alene a crafting event designed and hosted by Tresa Black. Great time...crafting. This was my 4th year and is one of my "must attend" events each year even though it's a 7 hour drive. We had 4 classes; 1) Layout and Card, 2) Technique Boutique Cards (20), 3) Jewelry, and 4) Mini Album. 4. February 22 - Paper-crafting with GEMS girls working on their Stamping Badge. 5. February 26 - Trip to Seattle for the CTMH Rediscover Event. cost - $30 and we got $70 in products - a Hip Pic Album and papers/2 stamp sets, Jewelry - pendent necklace and extras. It was here I set a goal to post to my blog - WEEKLY!! can I do it?
Plus, on the side I actually work FT; of course it was a busy month at work, too. The snow days were a blessing just to recuperate! Retirement is looking really good these days. :-) I'm loving my Crafty-Happy Studio and don't seem to find enough time to play there.
I'm making accordian-albums in an after school class with 4th - 6th graders. After watching this video, the little filmstrip book looks like it will fit in perfectly. I'll be experimenting tomorrow, so stay tuned. I'll post as soon as I have a finished product! If you have tried this technic, please share what you've done with the link to your blog or FB picture.
The decorations are put away and it's time to get "inky" again. It's been fun during winter break to look at the CTMH website and check out some of the tutorials and check out the latest specials starting with the January Cloud Nine cardmaking kit. The blog-hop for this kit is full of amazing art and ideas. Start with

These are the suggestions I've received since posting that I'm searching for a name for my craft room.. I've decided to enter the names of everyone who participated into a drawing for a stamp set. So far 7 people have suggested 14 names
of all those who served so we can enjoy peace.
Veterans Day was originally Armistice Day and took place on the
11th day of the 11th month of 1918, which was when the armistice that ended
World War I took effect. Armistice
Day was first celebrated in 1919 at the direction of President Wilson. The
original idea was for a day observed with parades and public meetings and a
time of silence at 11 a.m., the hour of day the armistice took effect,
according to a Department of Veterans Affairs
history of the holiday. “To us in America, the reflections of
Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died
in the country’s service,” Wilson said at the time. Congress in 1926 passed a concurrent resolution that set
aside Nov. 11 as a commemoration of World War I’s end. At the time, lawmakers
directed that the day should involve thanksgiving and prayer and “exercises
designed to perpetuate peace through good will and mutual understanding between
nations.” This past Friday, Lummi Nation School had a Veterans’ Day assembly
and invited the veteran's from the community to attend. It was one of the
best Veterans' Day assemblies I've observed.
Oh, My!! We're already a FULL week into November! I'm so glad I have a day off Monday to have some play time in my craft room. Whooo Hoooo!!

I've decided to name my happy place The Crafty-Happy Emporium. It has taken two months of reflection, suggestions and discussion to finally settle on this name. I received 13 suggestions from friends and family and finally with my husband's help I have a name that I really feel captures both the purpose and joy of the craft room. I've enjoyed reading all the suggestions and thank you for your input which ultimately inspired the final choice. Since I didn't settle on a name from your suggestions, I will a have drawing from the list of those who contributed to give away the stamp set I have available for this challenge.
Keep checking for new posts. I'll be back soon. Darlys
