Christmas in July

is at the store this week. I have been overwhelmed with the new products that will be rolled out next week by the paper manufacturers.  And all I want to do is buy Halloween & Christmas things.  Only problem involves the fact that I have lots of last years' paper, and no racks to put new collections!  What's a girl to do?  
  I  know we need to buy more racks. But it is much easier to to move the paper out! So Patty & I have decided to have a Christmas Card Make-Take, every day for the rest of the month!!
 Patty sends out lots of card each year for their busy Keystone German Shepherd Kennels.  Simple & easy is the the key to "mass producing" cards for her list.  A strip of red, black & white cardstocks, and a buckle and letters cut out of glitter paper.  That's it Dreamers.
   You can stop by the store and choose this as your $1.00 card of the day.

 Some of you know that I have very curved lenses in my glasses (I guess because of my astigmatism?) and I live in a curved world.  Then add trifocals to the mix and I can never glue a thing down straight. Rulers slip & slide and  pencil marks never erase completely. We have the perfect tool right at hand.  I simply put my card even on my trimmer, as if I were going to trim it.  Then I have a stable straight edge, so my words are awesomely level.  There you go...a dollar card and a tip!
    Don't forget to come by the store for a make-take.  Ask me about our retreat...cause I have LOTS to tell you about it.  Read more on a web site by clicking here.
  I'm dreamin' on a cure for Cancers....
 You keep Dreamin' too.

Passion For Pink Scrap Retreat

Three Cheers for the Red, White & Blue.

I admit it...I love the 4th of July!  It used to be a time at our house to go to the lake, cause mom was afraid of fireworks. I think that really they couldn't afford to buy them for us and they were banned at the lake!  I can't say I am any fonder of them than she was...but my family LOVES them!
    Every year, they gather at our house (ok, we have a pool) and swim, cook out burgers & dogs, and then end the night with a fireworks display in our back yard.  As the kids have gotten older, their friends have been added. And their softball teams have been added. And their employees have been added!  Last year we had roughly 57 or so people!
     The party doesn't start till late afternoon so we can have family swim before hand.  Steve cooked all evening and then settled into a lawn chair to watch "the kids" blow up their paychecks...I mean the fireworks!
 and what a display we had!   

    I am starting a new business. A scrapbook retreat & design business.  The name is The Dreamer's KlubHouse Design & Retreats.  Our first retreat is September 6, 7, & 8 at the Embassy Suites in Tulsa.  You can find the information here.  And I am also kicking off my Dreamer's Kit program on the 8th of July.  My first kit will be an Independence Day  layout.  You'll need to check in to see it. 
   No layouts today, just felt like talking.  I pray that you will all be safe this holiday and take a moment to think of the early founders of our country.  They fought for our right to freedom, many laying down their lives.  

God Bless The U.S.A.!

Keep Dreamin'
