a whirl wind called summer

seriously, summer has flown by and unseasonably cold weather it is starting to already feel like fall....I have had yet again several inquiries about teaching another altered canvas class at the store so I am working on this mixed media canvas creation...I am going to do a version with photos and one without.
I used vintage dictionary papers, basicgrey, hambly,7gypises, and Claudine Hellmuth studio multi medium and paints.

Hope you enjoy....Hailey
PS - Julie is the winner from the last post....please email me your address.

go for your dreams right?

well my mom always says "you are the Rachael Ray of Scrapbooking". I think it must be my fun spunky personality and my love for the craft and teaching what I have learned to others. Like Rachael who does not claim to be a Chef but a kick "A" Cook, I take no claim at being an Artist I am just a seriously crafty chic....

So I have been going round and round that Carol Duvall lives in Michigan, who is going to be next? I have not seen a fun up to date craft segment on television for some time now.

I have finally said hey if it's a dream of mine to be the Rachael Ray of Scrapbooking, which I must say the Hailey Mann of Scrapbooking sounds ok to me :) too. I finally submitted an email to Fox Detroit with some ideas.

If you think I should rock my mini books on Fox Detroit please leave me a comment and I will send out a box of goodies pulled from my stash for the winner of the random drawing.

It is only fitting to post a picture of my idea journal I made....

PS - The 2nd Early Bird Recipe Book Pot Luck Class on Aug 9th is almost full....So if you missed the 1st one of are thinking about signing up don't delay.

Also don't forget Suze Weinberg is coming to the store for a Weekend of Melt Art!

vegas mini

here is a super cute vegas mini I made. I make making 2 more for the other 2 couples that went with us. Hope they like it!

PS - The picture behind the letter "V" on the cover is the view from our room. I love how it turned out. Also I kept those "coupons" and free little books that are passed out all over. They have great little pieces that can be cut out and used to embellish the pages. I used names of streets, clubs, restaurants, maps etc.
