all things distress

This is a sample for a new class I'm teaching at Stampfully Yours in Escondido in November. I had so much fun getting inky with this tag book. I can't wait to see how the students change it up and make their own versions of this one. I'm planning to write my favorite quotes in here. Eleanor Roosevelt is sure to have top billing. It would make a fun little art journal or mini scrapbook, too. I'd love to hear how you'd use it.

Other news highlights around here this week:
*High School is still going well, even with homework.
*Hubby is flying out to visit with his family this weekend.
*I noticed on our walk today that the leaves and acorns are falling.
*We're up to our eyeballs in seafood. I'm officially a fishing widow or fish wife or something like that.
*Labor Day weekend around here means garage sale mania and a very happy fish wife.
*The stamping girls came over Monday and we stamped ourselves silly. I love stamping days.
*Tomorrow is yoga day, ahhhh

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have a beautiful holiday weekend.

Hey.. I'm up to my ears in corn! At this point, I'd rather have fish.. well, maybe not... hmm.. why can't we be up to our ears, in say, chocolate? Or smoked salmon? I'd like smoked salmon!!!

Love the tag book! I wish I lived closer to Escondido so I could sign up for the class. I think it be great to use the tag book for a collection of affirmations. WRE

Tami, your book is Gorgeous! I wish I lived closer to take one of your classes in person! I love quotes and as a teen, I used to have them all over my walls. I even found a book of them that I wrote some into that I fancied at the time. So, while there are many things that this fantastic tag book could be used for, quotes sound delightful!! Have fun at your garage sale'ing (how do I spell that anyway!!??!!) and do let us know what treasures you find! :>
