helllllooooo, january 31st. you sure snuck up on me. i have to say i'm a little shocked that the end of january is here.. it flew by in a flurry of deadlines and CHA and read-a-thon activities at school and sick days and snow days.
before we move on to febrary, i have a couple of things to share. first, most of the new CHA releases (sundrifter, here+there and snippets) are in at SC. if you're a kit subscriber, you can order through midnight EST tonight and it will ship with your kit. i'll be sharing my CHA layouts soon (hopefully tomorrow), but here's a peek at the sneaks again. =)
registration ends TONIGHT at midnight est for nicole samuels' BRIGHT IDEAS class at studio calico. i've been excited about this class ever since nic proposed it to us, and i can tell you that the actual content does not disappoint. the class will consist of 20 PDFs - a new one each weekday in February. they'll each have a challenge, a bit of a how to on the page, more "bright ideas" that apply to the challenge, and a sketch. this is going to be the kind of material you can go back to over and over when you're feeling creatively stuck.
i'm lucky enough to be contributing to the class as well - and when nic shared the assignment list for the class i may have emailed her back with something like - "re: my asssignment - SERIOUSLY?!?!" and then started wondering if she'd notice if i swapped for a new one. HA! my page goes up later in february and isn't finished yet, but here's a peek at what i've pulled together to work on it.... any guesses what my challenge is? and want to wish me luck that my idea turns out like it looks in my head? ;)
now to make it through the rest of january 31st - i need to do a sweep of our bookshelves for ready to pass on books, get the bright ideas classroom ready for tomorrow morning and help host a book swap at school tonight. ready, set go!
