some new material....

well we made it back from one frozen tundra to arrive in another....wtf.....there was an insane amount of snow in breckenridge. it took us 3 hours to get to breck from denver and 5 hours to get back to denver....ps it is only 87 miles, so that will tell you how crazy the weather was.....

But none the less I came back with some amazing new material for a wonderful little mini album.
Have a great day (or night), Hailey

Mega Meet here we come....

hello everyone,

I am very excited that both of our class submissions we accepted for Great Lakes Mega Meet. Those of you in the Tri-State area and Canada already know that this is the largest and best Scrapbook Expo that comes around. This year Tim Holtz is even teaching some classes.....

So in a three day span I will teach 300 people....very exhausting and awesome at the same time. 2 years ago at CKC Ft. Lauderdale, I taught 600 people so I am looking forward to only 2 classes per day so I can enjoy the show and talk to some more of my crafty peeps. Teaching is definitely my passion second to creating fun projects. Looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones :)

Hurry up and register to be notified as soon as classes open up. Typically they sell out on the first or second day of registration. Click on the link above to go to the mega meet site.

I will also be teaching some additional classes exclusive to Scrappy Chic at the store the same weekend.....keep an eye out in their newsletter for the class description and times.....

Have a great day, Hailey

ok mostly done....

ok so here are the covers of the mini-books I had to whip up tonight for Chris to submit for me to teach at mega meet. You would think after the 3rd year we would figure out the date that class samples needed to be completed by :)

The basic insides are done too but need a little sprucing. Dont worry they will be fun :) too

Have a great day or night, Hailey


Haha that's what I feel like today. Chris the owner of the best store Scrappy Chic, in Livonia was funny today. We were talking about what classes to offer at the local Scrapbook Convention in May - MegaMeet, and I said well when are they due? She emailed me that they we already due but if we get them something today or tomorrow they could consider it....WOW so a quick trip with all the guys at lunch today we ran into the store and picked up some supplies.

Then tonight I need to whip out two ridiculous fantastic eye catching mini-books.....

I am making one Father's Day/Manly book with G45 papers that mind you arrived just before we got to the store, and one with the cute new CosmoCricket....

So some speedy scrapping tonight...Have a great day, Hailey

super excited....

hello everyone,

I am super excited because I just received a shipping notification that THIS & THIS

Are on their way.....Sew I can Sew..hahha...my tote bags a little more professionally and embroidery...how fun. Ok sounding a little nerdy, but after my daughter lost 2 pairs of black snowpants this year you can bet your ass I am embroidering a giant EMMA on the back of the bibs on the 3rd pair :)

But also how about your name on your tote bag cover? I can just picture a hot pink "Hailey" on mine :)

Upcoming Class

Hello Everyone,

I am bringing back an oldie but goodie. I taught this class over 3 years ago and I think I am going to bring it back. The beach jar mini book. I have an upcoming trip to Jamaica and will be returning with some sand and will be making another one of these cute jars for my shelf.

What do you think? Do you have any sand or shells around and want to take this class? Let me know so I can get it on the schedule.

PS - These will be for Scrappy Chic in Livonia...but I do travel to teach so if you want this at your store let me know so I can set it up!

Have a great day, Hailey

dear catching fireflies...pick me...pick me...

hello.....I would love to be able to have some of my items in your store. I live in Rochester Hills and have shopped in the Berkley Store before. I am a mixed media artist and teaching altered art and scrapbooking is one of my passions. Here are a few examples of items that I feel would fit perfectly at your store :)

ps - I am not a great photographer and I would love to bring the items in for you to see.

Have a great day, Hailey
