Also, I found this great "happy holidays" sign/ornament at a Dolle's Candyland in Ocean City, MD a few weeks ago when I was there. It was half price and I just love it!

What's not to love?

This is the layout that I made in class.
I had never done an online class. I didn't even know what UStream was, but I learned. I made the project as we went (so you will have to excuse my stamping slurs). We could watch Rebecca throughout the class and we could comment on a chat. It was really neat to hear everyone's comments and ideas as we went along.

I loved these printed chipboard add-ons. I apologize for the glare, I am still trying to figure out how to get better blog photos (suggestions appreciated). You can't really see, but there are five different sheets. There are tags, swirls, book plates, hearts and scallops. They are all self-adhesive.
Also included were flower and alpha stickers.
And last, but not least, a great stamp set! I was so excited!
My next post will show you what I made in the class.

What is a Fiskateer you ask? In case you didn’t know, I am a Fiskateer! (see my new blinkie - I just learned how to do that - yea me!)
Well, you too can be a Fiskateer! Just go to http://www.fiskateers.com/ and follow the “How to Join” link. Get to know one of the lead Fiskateers (pick Rebecca – you will see why in a later blog). All you have to do to get to know them is click on their photo and an email will open with their address already for you to send them a quick note. Tell Rebecca that Donna VW #3810 told you about this.
Now you may think I am telling you this so I can win something. Actually I am telling you so that you can win something. Once you hear back from your Fiskateer you will follow the link they give you to join the Fiskateer community. Then the fun begins! Watch your mailbox for a really great personalized gift. My friend Summer got hers just the other day. You will not be disappointed.
Oh, yeah, if you do register, come back and let me know what your Fiskateer number is (just for fun).
Also, you can follow their blog. They always have lots of great ideas and fun events going on. Watch for my next blog to see what I got to do with Rebecca and a group of other Fiskateers.

7Gypsies has a version of this that they use for a Photo Display, so don’t limit yourself!

I thought this would be a great project to demonstrate at our church’s Harvest Fest. I knew that I had a scheduling conflict and would not be able to be at the event, but I found a group of girlfriends that were willing to do the demo and class. We decided to get together and make the recipe and some samples of the jars for their class.
Well, first off, the dip is fabulous! It is very easy to make. We tasted it with ginger snaps and apples. The ginger snaps are pretty good with it, but the apples (I used Fuji) were fabulous! It was a taste of fall delight! The next day I brought some to the office to share and we tried it with Nilla Wafers – another good choice.
Then, the jars – they are just so cute. I had a hard time finding them locally (I guess it is a little late for canning season) so I ordered them online from Goodman’s. Ours project is a little different from Barbs. For the top we used the middle two sizes of the Spellbinders Petite Scalloped Small Circles set. We put a patterned circle behind the off white circle that we stamped with the pumpkin. After trying markers and colored pencils we decided the pencils were a better choice for the class. Then we used a stamp from the JustRite Recipe Set border that reads “Made with Love” and we used their small letter set to add “PUMPKIN DIP” in the center. We stamped that on a little pumpkin. Both the pumpkin and the tag were punched from Sizzix originals.
PS What have you thanked God for today?
