Technique Class and Special Sale

Well it was good to get back into the rythm of our Technique Class tonight.  What a lovely group of ladies we have come out to class.  They love to learn and also love to put their own spin on what they are learning too which enables us to see something different.  Tonight we also had an extra teacher in that Rachel joined us at class tonight.  Some of the ladies were really anxious to know about her new sewing machine surprising Rachel that they knew about it before she did...LOL! 

The ladies had a great time playing with Tim Holtz Distress Inks.  Finding that although they all used the same colours, their finished cards were all unique according to how much water and how they applied that water to the ink.  Three different punches were used on the lacy border card, each giving a very different look too, as well as how the colours were layered.   The heart card had it's own opportunity for everyone to change it up both by  where the hearts were placed and also how the lines were drawn behind the hearts.  Here's a little of what we did tonight...jump on over to the Flickr site here to see more photos.

Can you imagine how, when there are 365 days in a year that one family can share so many birthdays?  Today was our Jonathan's birthday and he reached the milestone age of 13! However when I called him this morning he told me he wasn't 13 yet as his birth time was later in the day!  His dear aunt "Ninny" (Linda) told him again today as she does every year....I had a much better night's sleep last night than I did 13 (or whichever birthday it is) years ago.  She had gone over to stay with Jonathan's brother when his Mom and Dad went to the hospital for his birth.  Anyway, what I was going to tell you, was that my sister's family shares a number of birthdays with our family. Today was her granddaughter's 2nd birthday.  Her Daddy wasn't with her today as he's off training hoping once again to be on our Canadian Men's Eight rowing team in the 2012 Olympics in England.   In another four days, it will be my sister's son-in-law's birthday as well as my dear husbands special day too.  Happy Birthday to all four of these family members.
