Getting Closer!

It's almost here!
The big Open House is on Saturday & we've been busy!

Both the November & December class samples are in the shop now!
We've already filled the first 3 spaces of the Nov. 7th class!
Hopefully more of you will be enticed by the samples on Saturday!

(Nov. "Made From Scratch" class project)

Our first kit, Domestic Goddess, is packaged & ready to go!

We've got some fabulous stamps all wrapped up & the Make'n Take is "taking" shape for Saturday!

We've ordered some great Webster Pages paper & hope that it arrives by Friday so we can get that in the shop for Saturday too!

Mom's working on some fun kid stuff & a game table! I'm doing some various holiday pieces & Kim is doing a special order of birthday books & designing our next kit!
Things are just rolling right along!

We ARE scrambling a little bit this week, as we are expecting a big snowstorm to hit on Wednesday. Since I live in Denver, & Kim & Mom are further south, we are trying to limit our driving on those snowy days! But, it may turn out that I end up spending the night in Castle Rock if I'm down there working at Kim's for the day on Weds!
Which really wouldn't be that terrible! :)

Well, off to bed before I come up with some crazy project to start on now!
I need some sleep so my brain can function better & I can accomplish a lot tomorrow!

Ooooo! We are so excited!
I finished the sample for our first ever kit today! The one with all the fantastic vintage style papers in a paper-bag mini album form...I had so much fun with the Graphic 45 Domestic Goddess papers & some retro advertising that we will include in the kits this month, that I just had to share a little sneak peak for you all!

Here's just a bit more for now...if you want to see the whole thing, you'll have to come by the Barn to hold this "hot" little sample in your hands!
You are gonna WANT this kit!!

Domestic Goddess paper-bag mini album cover.
The album is 6 pages with 3 pockets.
The supplies in the kit will include (quantity TBD):
Graphic 45 papers
Vintage Housekeeping ads in a collage sheet
A cling-mounted rubber stamp by Unity Stamp Company
Ribbon, buttons, brads & more!

With just a little handful of supplies, I made a fabulous little book & filled it with some classic photos & housekeeping quotes to give it my own personal touch!

(You HAVE to come see the sample in the store to see the finished product with some "classic" photos of Maggie throughout the album! It's truely priceless if I do say so myself!)
And you can do the same!
We should have the kits in our shop at the Barn by the end of next week!
So check back here for the final release date or come by the shop for a visit! You won't regret it!

(Domestic Goddess album with all the inserts pulled out a bit! It's so FAB!!!)

Here's what I did with the finished sample...My Maggie is such a trooper!!
These are just a few of the pages. If you are interested in making a book like mine, you can buy the kit in January 2010 from our Etsy & ArtFire shops. Then email me &
I'll send you some more photos of my completed book!


Lots of News!

Sorry to all of you for not posting over the last week since the move-in day at The Barn! We left for a vacation the next day & Kim & om had their hands full putting the finishing touches on the space & taking care of my poor little Magpie, who incidentally came down with the Swine Flu AND pneumonia the day we left! Needless to say, I wasn't too thrilled to be leaving her, but Nick was about to blow a gasket from stress & we knew Maggie's Aunt Kim would give her the TLC she needed. And boy did she ever! Maggie is totally back to normal as of 10/13! She's running around like crazy & chattering like her usual self!! ;-)

Back to business! Lots of info to follow here...

The space is done, we've sold some goodies
& we are getting ready for our open house on Halloween!
In addition, we have set the dates for our first few classes

Moving Day 1

After a crazy windy, restless night, I awoke to a busy morning of getting Maggie off to school & headed down to mom & dads to load our cars with furniture for the official move in "party!"

Kim & I got there first & cleaned the space a little bit & then the fun started...

Kim & I lugged most of the furniture up the stairs, as it was just too hard for the folks to do. Then we decided that we needed a little rug in the space & some of the stuff at home that wouldn't fit in the cars. So mom & Kim headed out while dad & I stayed behind to dust furniture & put a few things together.

We had a good time stretching out the rope lighting & dad was such a great supervisor in the beginning & then a super douper big help later in the day with all the little bits & pieces!

While I worked on hanging the rope lighting, everyone else worked on figuring out how the heck to set up the track lights! A little while later, we called in a "consult" from Kim's hubby Eric! He & dad ran back to Lowes to get some other piece we were missing & only time will tell if we have the right stuff to hang the lights tomorrow!

While they were gone, I had a good time pretending to be some construction chick & "hoisted" our sign into the space!

All in all, it was a very good & productive day! We were (are) very pooped out, but very proud of ourselves for accomplishing so much in one day! Tomorrow will be so much more fun since there is only a few pieces of furniture to move & the rest of the day can be spent placing our product around the space! TTFN!
