Beginner Class
I teach beginners everything they need to know to begin scrapbooking. Classes can be booked at your convenience and are taught in my studio.
If you put a group together of 3 or more students, I am quite happy to travel to your home or venue to teach.

Our Test Kitchen Blog
Inspired by the movie Julia & Julie, we have embarked on a journey to try new and interesting recipes and share the recipes and our experiences through this blog. Each month contributors will select a new cookbook and set a goal of how many recipes to try each week.

Book Club
Are you interested in expanding your literary horizons? I am hosting the September book club meeting and we will be discussing The Birth House by Ami McKay. Our long-term project is Anna Karenina by Tolstoy. It will be an enjoyable evening and, of course, refreshments will be served.

Craft Guild
Many of us have many hobbies and interests, including scrapbooking. And how many of the hobbies and interests result in piles of unfinished projects? I have more counted cross stitches, afghans, table cloths and quilts waiting to be finished then I even want to count. The Craft Guild is here to inspire you. Join us once a month in the host’s home for a make n take (which will be non-scrapbooking . . . lol) and a chance to sit down with an unfinished project, some friends, a treat and a cup of tea (coffee) and get it done. There is no cost for this guild . . . just the enjoyment of your company. I am hosting this month.

Cardmakers Club
Host for October is Sandra McKay. We are doing something a little bit different this month . . . a shoe box swap. Each person will create a Christmas card and pack everything needed to create 6 more of the same cards. We will spend the evening building 6 different cards from the swap. Please let us know if you will be attending.
