Creative Chemistry 101

So now that life is starting to calm down a bit, I decided to sign up for Tim Holtz's first ever online class.  I have to be honest and say that I have never been much of a fan of his style.  I am more of a minimalist, clean cut kind of gal, and if you know Tim, his style is the farthest from minimal.  After taking a class from him at CHA-S in 2011 I have started experimenting and playing more with his products.

Similarly to Tim Holtz, I do not have an art background despite the fact, that professional artists are in my bloodline...guess it skipped my generation.  I was intrigued by the very nature of his class Creative Chemistry.  This class is the what and why of a product as well as technique.  And that is putting it mildly.  This truly is a crash course in everything colorful and inky.  I highly encourage you to check it out...and the price is extremely reasonable. Class Info.  Even though the class has already begun, you will have a lifetime access with your paid tuition.  I'll be posting our "homework" in the next days to come.

Happy New Year!

I wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year and thank you for creating with me in 2011.  As many of you know, I have had some big changes and challenges in my life this past year.  I want to thank all of you for your continued love and support this past year. 

The New Year brings new opportunities.  A clean slate if you will.  I am no stranger to making (and breaking) New Year's resolutions.  This year, however, I have decided to follow through on those resolutions, not because they are "Resolutions" but because I have to follow my heart and the path that God has for me.  

That Scrappy Girl, at this time, is no longer a path I can continue to follow.  I have struggled with this decision for some time and honestly I thought I had enough energy and passion to keep things going.  It saddens me to say, that the business portion of That Scrappy Girl is just too much for me and I need to focus on  other priorities in my life. 

I have been truly blessed to have met so many wonderful people along the way.  I consider you all friends.  I want to not only thank you, but all of my wonderful vendors who generously donated prizes for my crops and workshops.  Please continue to support them.  

I will be reducing inventory with some upcoming sales, so please watch for those announcements and pass the word along.  I will continue to post on this blog, but in a different capacity.  I want to share my love of scrapbooking and want to have an avenue to express my creativity.  I will no longer have a design team, website or crops.  I have committed to some local crops as a vendor and I intend to honor those commitments. I will be officially closing the business on March 15, 2012 which signifies That Scrappy Girl's 4th birthday.

I hope 2012 brings you all the joy and peace your heart desires.
