Changes, changes, changes

If this is the first time here, you may not understand. However, if you follow this blog you will notice that it has changed. It feels right now!! Hope you enjoy. I will try to get the goodies up that I promised you all last week. I am getting ready for the Brandon Scrapbookers Convention this coming weekend, so the week is kinda crazy... but I will try. If you are going to be in Brandon this weekend, stop in for a chat. I'd love to meet you!
Til next time... sunshine in the forcast!!!

Back home!

I have finally made it home from my weekend in Saskatoon. I was at a scrapbooking convention.... where I met some AMAZING women. I had a blast out there! I went out with my sister, Jill, and we each taught a class on Saturday. We left Saskatoon at 8 o'clock last night, and got to my door just after 4 in the morning! (very short night, but glad to be home).

Just wanted to say a big HI to everyone I met in S'ktoon... Thanks for inviting us Leica. I will be updating the blog in the next few days, with some projects on the go, and some up-coming goodies I'm working on.... stay in touch.

I also got to catch up this weekend with Jackie Ludlage from Canadian Scrapbooker magazine, and Allison Orthner ... two wonderful gals I had the opportunity to meet when I went on the Crop and Cruise event last month in the Carribean. Had a great time catching up with you (Jackie - bring Katharina next time!!). Check out the crop and cruise website - you are going to want to come next time!!(

Take care, 'til next time.....

Cut your way began in my garage, about 2 years
ago (as Wooden Decorative Designs). My family and friends asked me to cut designs out of wood for them, and it has grown from there. I started with letters - like the photo of FAMILY. The standard font that I cut is this one, where the letters vary from 6" to 9" high. I really like how the vary in sizes adds some "funk" to the project.

I can also cut different fonts, sizes and designs. The price varies depending on the degree of difficultly in cutting, and the size. The regular font letters are $5 each. Just ask me cut... whatever you want... I love to hear what people have in mind, and then get them what they want. Custom, hand-made designs... one-of-a-kind!!

Cut your way frames are fun and easy to decorate. You can custom-make your frame to suit your own home decor, or they make great gift ideas.

The frame pictured here is 18" by 18", with an openning for a 4x6" picture. This one was painted, and then embossed with white embossing powder from Close to my Heart (LOVE this company and their consultants!!).

Frames come 9x9" ($5 each), 12x12" ($9 each) and 18x18" ($12 each).... or custom size one for a special spot on your wall!

Depending on where you live, there would be a shipping fee involved. However, I would love to work with you for the best deal possible - bulk orders... get friends excited too! A neat idea to do with a few girlfriends for an evening get-together. Or a great gift for a new mom. Whatever you decide to do with them, you will LOVE decorating these frames (just ask my sister, who has about 4 of them in her home.... and not just because I make them!).

Here I am!!!

Yes...I now have a blog! A BLOG!! I have just entered the next stage of my life, and have gotten a blog! Just because I have a blog, doesn't mean I know how to use it yet... so please be patient with me. My hope for this, is that it will be a place for people to contact me, and request items that I make. It will be a place to post inspiration in the ways of creating projects and generating new ideas. I hope you enjoy this... my new BLOG!
