Do you remember the days when we wrapped the gifts, placed them under tree and experienced that feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment? For me that feelings seems light years in the past… I spent a little time this week wrapping the gifts destined for under the tree…
I am not particularly bothered by this. When I grew up we didn’t get to see the tree till Christmas Eve, and I like it that way. In the past I often set up the tree at the beginning of December and grew tired of it by the time the holidays arrived. This year I am targeting the set up for this weekend or maybe even Christmas Eve day when we have company and can make it a little event.
I am sure you didn’t really check in for my status on Christmas preparations. I promise I will make this worth your while. I am announcing a special treat for those of you interested. Let’s get right to the point. Remember this?
Nearly two years ago I shared the instructions for the “Dryer Sheet Book Cover” on this blog. At that time I heard from many and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive. Some comments were that they don’t use dryer sheets, or they didn’t want to make a mess with the paints… When I was asked to prepare a workshop for California for the fall I thought this book cover might be just the project for participants. I spent three weeks preparing kits for three workshops, and then in July the plans changed and my kit based classes were changed to a two-day design based workshop.
I have 25 book cover kits sitting in my studio. There are five each of autumn field gold, dusty rose, wine red, sea foam green, and prairie sky blue.
The kit fee for each participant in the workshop would have been $ 25 (over and above the course fee). I am offering these kits to the readers of this blog for (Can.) $ 15 (includes shipping and taxes!). All you need to do is select your own threads. I provide step-by-step instructions along with the kit, and you can email me with questions anytime.
Interested? Here is what you do: Email me your name, email address and shipping address (this will be treated as confidential information and will never be shared with anyone). Please specify your color choice; I do my best to meet your request as long as your first color choice is available! I will then invoice you via PayPal – once you receive the invoice and pay it I receive notification from PayPal and will ship your kits to you immediately.
***Special Update: It is Saturday mid afternoon and I have had a healthy response to yesterday’s special offer. the kits are going fast. I have only a few kits left, namely prairie gold, seafoam green, dusty rose and one red kit. The elves are busy packing the kits for shipping on Monday. Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
