Noteworthy | 10.28.2011

The scrapbook world is preparing for the holidays this week it seems. Now I know that might seem extreme to some, but when we’re talking about providing ideas, inspiration, and helping to get ready to tackle holiday projects as crafters we do need all the time we can get! Of course, despite my love of the holiday season, I have more than just holiday spirit to share in this week’s Noteworthy column:

When looking through this week’s potential noteworthy stories, one name popped up three times. I’d say that is not only noteworthy, but lead off the week worthy!

Class includes a 7-page full-color PDF handout, plus 6 pages for responding to the writing prompts.

The class can be purchased here (cost $14). Continue Reading →

Between ScrapFest and The Creative Connection event, the Twin Cities are crawling with crafters and industry leaders!

For those of us not at this weekend’s event, we have plenty to be excited about and check out. Here are this week’s noteworthy stories:

Tim Holtz announced that he has worked with Ranger on releasing a limited edition set of seasonal distress inks. The set of three fall colors (ripe persimmon, gathered twigs, and seedless preserves) will be sold together as a stacked set. Continue Reading →
