Wow- hard to believe this gets to happen to me again. I am so excited and passionate about scrapbooking and I have always focused on encouraging and educating the new scrapbooker.
I had the opportunity to author The Complete Idiot's Guide to Scrapbooking the first and second edition in 1999 and 2002.
And of course the fabulous book I co-authored with the esteemed Aby Garvey, The Organized and Inspired Scrapbooker in 2007. Luckily, a publisher picked up the rights and is reprinting the Organized and Inspired Scrapbooker as a paperback which will be out November of this year. Yeah!!!

My class description is below- you can sign up here.
Get Organized and Be Inspired Our year kicks off with the brilliance of Wendy Smedley. Wendy is the creative editor at Simple Scrapbooks magazine and co-author of the just-released Organized and Inspired Scrapbooker. Wendy will teach from her book and interact with you to determine why and how you scrapbook and how you can set up your space to reflect your personal approach. In addition to the step-by-step guidance you will get from Wendy, the value of this unique workshop rests in the global community that will share and work together. Just think: three months of long winter nights to really explore what you do and how you can do it in a more inspired way!
Off to get more of this class work done!
and to head off Christmas shopping with my five kids!
