Mojo Monday: a little note

good morning!!!

wow! has it really been a WEEK since i last posted???  i guess time flies when you’re having fun!  i have been working myself to death!  luckily i love my work!  i have all sorts of news to share with you today so grab a cuppa coffee and let’s go!


Our latest issue of Through the Craft Room Door is at the printers and soon on it’s way to mailboxes.  i LOVE this one – so much info, great projects and best of all a wee bit of a facelift.  no drastic changes but definitely some polish.  this involved me learning an entirely new, complicated bit of software at break neck speed but i am a serious software junkie so i loved every minute of it!  i can’t wait to hear what our readers think!  if you are NOT already a subscriber you can get all of that info on our website – TTCRD subscription.

We have also GREATLY expanded our website and boy do we have loads of fun planned!!!  we are quickly approaching our 1 year birthday and we think that calls for a PARTY!  and this party will be open to ALL – subscribers and non subscribers alike.  think games, challenges and a heap of goodies to give out to YOU!  a fun time will be had by all i assure you!

We will also be opening up a new challenge – every 2 weeks we will issue a challenge for anyone who wants to participate.  of course a challenge will need a design team so we will be posting a call for creative folks like YOU!

Current subscribers – Magazine content and all of the tutorials and videos that go along with a subscription is still only accessible to current subscribers.

In addition we now have a referral points system in place so be sure to check out the details of that HERE.  what do you get for points?  cold hard CASH or the equivalent in a gift certificate to your favorite crafting store!!!!  EVERYONE can earn points so be sure to read all about that and get started on your collection!  We have received SO MUCH support over the last year and we want to give something in return!

Get the details on all of this and more by checking in on our News & Events page!

hahhaha i felt like my project needed a title too 😛

i used the current Mojo Monday sketch for today’s cute card.  i decided to do the square version.  In addition I have entered it for the following challenges:

Papertake Weekly: Anything Goes
Stamp Something: Flowers

My friend Elizabeth of Softpencil has been working very hard on loads of new things and has just released some new Easter digis – oh so cute in her adorable signature style.  i decided i needed to get some printed off from my collection and managed to get one colored up:

isn’t it cute!  i love love love the simplicity of the images – so relaxing to color.  i did this one using Prismas and Gamsol – i usually don’t use Gamsol but i give it a try every once in awhile!  The little tag is cut from the Christmas Cheer Cricut cartridge.

Elizabeth gave me an excellent tip about digis and colored pencils – i had some trouble with my black ink smearing.  She said give it a mist with Workable Fixative and the problem is solved.  Works brilliantly!  it comes in a spray can much like spray paint would and is available at most craft stores.

I am continuing to put the Colored Pencil class together as I know folks are anxious to enroll.  i have been getting lots of emails begging me to hurry up!

and what was pezza up to while i was typing away on this post?  torturing the poor cat of course.  the weirdest part – tiger has to be near pez no matter what stunts she is pulling with her!

i know what a mess right!
i hope you all have a great day!!!!!
