Back to school, Valentines Day, Easter, boy before we know it, it will be Christmas again….I don't know about you, but life just always seems so busy. Do we ever really take enough time to really stop and smell the roses? Well, I think we all need to remember the importance of just taking more "ME" time, and what a better way to do it then sitting down and creating? I know it works for me….so yes Thursday’s are now Studio time – no matter what, I need at least a weekly dose. How about YOU???

Retreat – yes we are officially closed on taking bookings for Feb – although there is room. But preparations have begun for goodie bags, with Aussie Scrap Source making the first challenge bag donations……We hope to let those on the Retreat List know in the next week, more details as to Photography Lessons, Massages and more Exciting Details of what to bring. Only 20 Sleeps!!!!

What’s NEW in the Newsletter – we will be bringing you a feature spotlight on one of our lucky members each month, and I would like to personally Congratulate Shelly on being our Spotlighted member this month. She brings a lot of fun to the forum with her Funny Witty Sense of Humour!!!!

Unfortunately ONLINE CLASSES with our guest designer Natasha Dennis will be put off due to illness. Natasha has taken a sabbatical, but we will be bringing her work to you in our classroom later in the year. Debbie Benefield will be bringing her Guest Teaching Spot to life during the Month of March keep an eye out for her samples coming soon.
