I'm taking some classes from Bi PictureScrapbooking.com I know, big surprise huh? I actually can't remember a time when I wasn't taking at least one class. I just finished Library of Memories with Stacy Julian for the second time and Daily dose, both were VERY cool! I took a class about using and making kits in October and they made some improvements and invited the alumni to retake the class, so I'm taking that now. The improvements turned the class from good to fabulous and I'm really enjoying it. Last week we were to make our own kit from some piece of inspiration. I used a poncho I bought Juliet for next winter from Catimini...
I absolutely love these colours. The photos aren't great, but you get the idea. We are traveling a lot this summer so I wanted a kit that I could take with me everywhere and just be able to have everything on hand to just scrap!
I'm also taking a Baker's Dozen with Stacy's sister Darci and it's the coolest class ever! It's just fun and I'm getting lots of simple pages done. Here'sa LO that I did about Matthieu the other morning. It didn't take very long at all!
Speaking of Matthieu, he was so sick! Or so he says, you know how men get when they are sick. He came home from work last night, not a minute early or anything and he says 'I feel like I'm going to die!! I need to go to bed... but I'm just going to eat supper first.' ;) He stayed in bed until about 7 this morning when he got up and dressed and went to work. Meanwhile, he could barely say hello to us and couldn't handle the kids and their 'noise'. He didn't last long and was back home in bed before too long. He went back over to the office as soon as he felt better, around 6pm. Sheesh!!
'Les soldes' started yesterday. In France and in many European countries, they only have sales twice a year, around July and January and they usually last about 6 weeks. I avoided the crowds yesterday, but I have been putting off buying some well needed things so I went today and the crowds weren't too bad. I bought myself 3 pairs of shoes at 50% and 30% off, new sunglasses at 30% off all of which I really needed, I had no sandals and my sunglasses were getting really bent. Then I hit Catimini! I LOVE this store, I mean their stuff is fantastic, fabulous colour combinations (remember the poncho from up above) and great quality. The boys all have winter coats from there. Wool coats. I can pop them in the washer and everything! SO the boy collection is very cool, but the girl collection... sigh. I'm in love! I would not even allow myself to look at the girl side of the store before Juliet was born so that I wouldn't get disappointed. Anyway, I got the boys a few things, but I had a blast in the girl section!!!
