This and That

Spring has arrived early this year and it has been such a gift. March usually yields the most snow in Minnesota but temperatures are supposed to get to 70 degrees this week which is unheard for this time of year. I will certainly take it! I have a few different things that I wanted to share with you.

Persnickety Prints Sale. I have all my individual pages printed at Persnickety Prints and I CANNOT imagine going anywhere else. The quality of the images is incredible and the customer service is top-notch as well. I strongly encourage you to check it out. I know I will be taking advantage of this.

Masterful Scrapbook Designs - I am excited to share with you that I get the privilege of teaching at Masterful Scrapbook Designs in May. Debbie has such a great program going there. She invites guest teachers in each month to share their work and talk about their creative process. It is so fun and inspiring. The topic for May is "Portraits, Moments, Lists & 365ers (Scrapbooking when there is no big and obvious story). I have been busy getting ready for this.

Digital U - We just had our second webinar for Digital U. I have so much fun doing these with Amy Kingsford and Pattie Knox. This webinar focused on quick photo fixes. Amy showed how to remove marks from someone's face, Pattie showed how to fix pet eye issues and I shared how to fix lighting. If you have registered for Digital U the recording will be available later today. If you haven't registered, I encourage you to do so....it is free and it is fun! Our next Digital U will be on Thursday, April 12th at 9:00 pm EST. I hope to see you there.

Maple Syrup - Last year our good friend asked if he could tap the maple trees in our backyard. We collected the syrup and he boiled it down. We clearly got the better end of that deal. It was such a fun learning experience for all of us. We tapped our trees again this week and they are doing great. Our friend is concerned that the warm temperatures are going to impact our production but so far so good.

New Car- We have THE BEST neighbors in the world. This is Fritz. He owns the Goodyear tire store in town and let's just say that his garage is the kids most favorite place to hangout. He is soooo awesome with them and teaches them all kinds of things. I'll just say that if I have a flat tire on the side of the highway, I think I would stay in the car and let the kids change it for me. I'd have no clue and they would be all over it. Last fall Fritz bought a few of these....I'll call them "mac daddy race cars". Let's just say that you don't buy them at Target and they are SUPER fast. He has been soooo good about letting our kids play with them and there is frequently an Indy 500 race in our cul de sac. Well, we bought one for our family this weekend although it is pretty much Q's. It has been so much fun for all of us! The entire weekend was spent watching the cars race around the cul de sac.

It has been such a treat getting outside again. I hope the weather forecast is right. It is so refreshing to get some fresh air once again.

I hope you have a great day. Thanks for stopping by!
