Chalkboard Valentine Take 2 and Breakfast Television!

Hello my Crafty Friends!  It's been a busy few days here craftywise!  :>  Yesterday morning Ariel and I had two segments on Breakfast Television Winnipeg, a local television show.  This was my 5th time (Ariel's 4th) we had a great time and I think it went really well!   Today I taught a Valentine card class at a inner city school in my city, it went quite well!  I also finished up a custom wreath order, a baby hair band and started a pacifier clip order!  :>

For the first craft on BT we made a Pom Pom Valentine Puppy!  Ariel LOVES this puppy took it to school with her and told her classmates how to make it!  She is now sleeping with it!  She loves it that much you can see the video here.  (I will upload a photo of the craft tomorrow much too tired now)

Our second craft was paper roll butterflies!  :>  You can see the video here.  I really am so blessed to have this opportunity!  :> 

Today I taught two cards and as mentioned before I did teach a chalkboard technique card and THEY LOVED IT!  So much so I plan to do it again!  I let them choose where and which stamps to use and they really enjoyed coming up with there own designs! I enjoyed seeing what they came up with and the joy they had in making it!  One of the girls wrote her boyfriends name with the white pencil on the side and it looked so cool and I liked seeing how she put herself into the card! I did it with black paper so I made a new card for it, I took the photo quickly before I left:

I added pink embossing this time which I think adds so much!  I can see how making these chalkboard cards are a wee bit addicting!

Well that's it for me!  I am off I just remembered that I didn't do my squats for today!  I am taking part in a squat challenge started last week at 50, now it's 100!  Tonight I will do them and than fall into bed exhausted!  LOL  Super busy week here creativity and workwise too!  :>

The pop of pink really does make the card so special Anita. Sounds like you had a great time on the show. Wish I could see it but the video is only viewable in Canada.

So cute about the TV appearance and the pom-pom puppy Anita! And I love this version of your chalkboard card too! :-)

You are like the Energizer Bunny....you just never stop! Wow. You are amazing - all you do is glorious. Tickled that you get to share your T.V. stardom with your sweet daughter, that you "give back" with the girls group and you still have time for your family, business, and exercise. You are such a role model for young moms! Sending lots of Valentines hugs and thanks.

You always amaze me with how much you accomplish in a day! It's awesome that you share your talent with so many. Your card is so pretty! Love the pink hearts with the black and white.
