All right, my local friends, I need your input!!!!!
I am trying to plan out my next workshop and really want to do Christmas cards! Couple things I'm deciding between....
I can do a multi card workshop, like 10-20 cards, all different designs, workshop cost would be $1.00 per card.
I can do 5 different designs (all the same color scheme) and you make 10 each of those cards. This would be a $50 workshop, for 50 cards, but I would include a stamp set and an ink pad, in addition to all the embellishments that would go on the cards.
I can do 1 or 2 designs (possibly cards that would work as photo cards with a wallet sized photo) and you make 50 cards for $50, also including a stamp set and an ink pad.
So what do you think, give me some feedback!!!!!!!!!!!!
Would the end of September or the beginning of October work best for you???? It would be a 6+ hour event.

So I've been working on my daughter's birth announcements for over 3 months now! It started with an idea I came across from another CTMH consultant. I then found the template and chose my papers/colors. Then I made a prototype out of scraps. Then she came and I got busy with newborn stuff! I placed my order for supplies though. Sometime in June I started cutting out the card bases. I decided on the photo to use in July and got that ordered! Sometime later in July, I worked on them some more. At the end of July I spent a week at my parents house and sat down and worked on them some more. My mom then threatened me that I had to get them out soon or else. So now that my retreat is over, I'm caught up on life... I made it my project of the week!! It took a few hour this week but they are done!!!! ALL 96!!!!!!!!! My goal was to have them out before she's 3 months old (I made it). They will be handed out to those who come to her baptism this weekend and then mailed out on Monday!
** Disclaimer---- if you are lucky enough to get one of these beautiful creations, I better see it proudly displayed in your house somewhere! If not, you will be disowned!!!!!! hee hee!

Went on a weekend retreat last weekend. I planned this with my friend Katrina. We had 12 other ladies there. Katrina and I did goody bags for everyone with cute t-shirts, I taught a mini book class, we bought and cooked all the food the whole weekend. I also brought my darling baby girl with me....
With all that, I managed to somehow get 30 Layouts done!!!!!!!!!!!! I was so surprised when I counted them up after I got home!!
Here they are:
