So Proud of Myself --- aka Score at Value Village

So Proud of Myself --- aka Score at Value Village.

Scouring the discount stores and finding the hidden treasures is something I find really thrilling!

Come see what I found today -- it may encourage YOU to look at items in a different way!

In the Budget

In the Budget is one of our new shows at Creative EdVentures hosted by me, Cynthia Gagen.  The theme behind it is creating with low cost/free items, often found around the home or in your recycling bin.  It is part of the Friday rotation at 1 pm Eastern.  The first show was supposed to be today but unfortunately I had something urgent come up that had to be taken care of for my daughter and so I was unable to hold the show.  I apologize for the inconvenience - I don't like to cancel shows but this was completely unavoidable.  In order to make it up, I'm holding a special In the Budget on Wednesday, January 12th at 1 pm Eastern.  Here's the link to the show:

As always, if you can't make it to the live show, it will be recorded for playback later.

In the Zone January 3, 2011

Last night was our very first show for In the Zone, a fun craft party filled with demo’s, chat, and crafty Show and Tell.  Roberta and I had lots of fun doing and we hope that all of those who joined us had a good time too.  Our theme for last night was “new year, fresh start, endless possibilities” and our crafting demo’s were built around that.
I made a canvas to highlight my word for the year: Faith.  Roberta shared some really cool “reflection rocks” with us too.  All of that and lots more on the show so if you missed it live, be sure to check out the playback link:
Join us every Monday night at 9 pm Eastern for In the Zone on the Creative EdVentures channel!

My Word for 2011

Last year was the first time I heard of the idea of choosing a word sort of as your theme for the year.  I know, it may sound kind of hokey to some people but really, I found it a valuable experience.  For 2010, I chose the word serenity.  Choosing that word served me very well.  There were a few trying times during the year – not anything really serious like a death in the family but still, things that can really try a person’s patience and reminding myself to seek serenity through it all has been very helpful.
I found that an important part of the process for me was to create a piece of art based on my word.  It helped me feel like I was really absorbing the word internally, gave me time for reflection as I worked on the piece (about why I chose that word and what it means to me), and finally, gave me something tangible that I could put where I would see it every day.
This year when I was first asked what word I was choosing I instantly responded with “faith”.  It just popped right out of my mouth before I even thought about it.  Of course, then, as is my nature, I started to think about it some more and I started to second-guess my choice.  I considered other choices but kept going back to faith. 
Interestingly, I made my final decision to go with my gut instinct the morning of December 31st and then went to spend New Year’s Eve with a dear friend.  While there, he gave me a Christmas gift.  I was blown away.  He had no knowledge of me picking that word for 2011 and yet there it was!  Clearly, it was meant to be!
Join Robi Cohen and me Monday night, January 3rd for our first In the Zone Live Interactive WebTV show.  It’s a crafting party with chat, demo’s, and time for you to share what you’ve been making!  Our theme for tonight is a new year, fresh start, endless possibilities.  I’ll be demo’ing my artistic interpretation of my word faith.  You don’t need a webcam to watch (although if you have one, we’d LOVE to see what you’ve made!) and can watch on your computer from wherever you are!  It’s at 9 pm Eastern on the Creative EdVentures channel.  On Facebook you can access the room at: http://apps.facebook.com/creativeedventures or on the web, go to: http://linqto.com/rooms/creativeedventures
