August Ultimate Adventure Project

This month’s project has had to be moved to after the 25th.  I am having some eye issues and could not get the project done before convention and am still having issues and will be traveling until the 21st.  I will explain later, just want to make it a good project for you.   Thanks for your understanding.


Bonus Project Video restored

Our webmaster was able to restore the video for the first video of the bonus project.  So if you were waiting to get started so you could see how I did that background, you are now in business.  Sorry for the confusion.  With as much video as we loaded, it is amazing we don’t have more mix-ups.  The human factor isn’t so much fun somedays.  Hope you enjoy the project!

Santa and Sweet Squeaks lo

Ooops, link problem solved

We had a problem with the Day 3 link for Santa’s Summer Workshop but it is working now.  Sorry for the delay.  You may have to clear your browser cache for it to show up correctly. Also if you qualified for the bonus it is now open also.



Santa’s Summer Workshop Is About to Begin…

sample for blog

Our Santa’s Summer Workshop is about to begin.  Let your excitement build for each day a new adventure will be available.  Remember you do not have to start on any given day and binge watching is allowed.  Once the days are opened you are free to wander as you please.  Take your time and have fun with this.  There are lots of new surfaces and ideas to try.  I hope you enjoy the event and get into the holiday spirit.

Click on the SS 2016 Workshop above to enter the workshop.  You will be asked for a password to enter.   Each day at 8 AM CST a lesson will be released. Click on the day and you will be on your way.  If the day isn’t highlighted it isn’t opened yet.

Have fun!
