March 2014 - Trees Collection

Wave hello to your new collection for March . . . Trees!

A Note from Tricia
I'm still basking in the post-expo glow following my return from Texas. I go through an interesting cycle of emotions that coincide with every scheduled show. Have we thought of everything and packed well? Will the materials ship and arrive on time? Will people register for our workshops or stop in at the booth? Will my flights run on schedule?

Par for the course, Delta called on Wednesday to let me know that my Thursday morning flight to Texas had been canceled, so I packed and left for the airport that evening. Fortunately, I arrived safely on Thursday morning along with all of the booth materials and my awesome helper for the weekend, Jane McAshan.

My favorite part of the whole experience is teaching our Efficient Scrapbooking workshops. The response from students is invigorating and affirming. The process completely changes the way people feel about their craft. They leave the classroom empowered, encouraged and inspired. And that is what it's all about. This works. It really works. And it brings me such joy to be able to help people approach their scrapbooking with confidence.

We are so happy to welcome our new Texas area members to the family. Our next stop is at the Columbus, Ohio, Memories Expo. Have we packed well? Will the booth supplies ship and arrive on time? Will my flights be on schedule? And so we begin again . . .

What's Ahead?
We're all beyond ready for the blossoms of springtime. Soon the Hydrangeas will be in full bloom. Prepare for fresh, clean colors and another great batch of specialty textures in this cheerful collection.
