I was cleaning out my craft stash to get ready for the new year (lots of great things to come) and I came across an entire bunch of class kits for my Bits and Pieces Workshop. These kits are doing me absolutely no good just sitting here, so I decided to just chuck them all into the shop at some crazy crazy prices for the holidays.

And since it's been just about a year since the class ran, I decided that for the month of December, anyone who wants to sign up for my online Bits & Pieces workshop can do so at a greatly reduced price. 

In my decidedly biased opinion, I think either the kit or the class would make an excellent holiday present. You know, for yourself, or maybe someone else. 

Here are the details!


The workshop will primarly focus on taking a snapshot of the bits + pieces of your life right now. The things, places,and people that you love. Perfect to start documenting a new year!

There are 18 step-by-step lessons that include over 500 photographs to take you from start to finish with this project.

The end result will be a mini-book, though there will be other inspiration and ideas along the way. If you want to make your project about something else, or you have other ideas or thoughts you want to express, by all means, go with that. It is important to let your creativity guide you.

Participants will be able to work at their own pace. All participants will have access to the private blog for at least one year. 

The workshop includes guided journaling prompts, detailed technique tutorials, photography tips, links to really cool online resources, plus some class-exclusive digital content designed by Coffee Girl Crafts. 

Workshop participants will have access to a private blog, and a private Flickr group for sharing photos.


A kit made especially with bits & pieces of my favorite mini book components.

- 1 Handmade fabric and chipboard mini book with silver grommets

This is a fantastic edition to your rubber stamp collection. Perfect for many different artistic projects including card making, scrapbooking, ATCs, altered art and more.

Now, as one final fun thing for the first of December, I am going to be giving away one of my sets of Christmas Bottlecap Magnets! Just leave a comment here with your favorite holiday song and I'll randomly pick a winner on Sunday night. 

Happy December!

Hi favorite song is "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas". Love the bottlecap magnets! I swooned over your December daily book - awesome - can't wait to see it when it is done.

Baby it's cold outside ... even though the words are a little creepy :) I like it!

Beautiful stamp.

My favourite Christmas song is very hard to choose - right now though, I'm loving "It's a Marshmallow World" - so jolly and cheery!

I pretty much like all Christmas songs but my favorite is Mary, Did you know? by Michael English. Love your DD - can't wait to see how you put it together.

My favorite Christmas song is A Sailor's Christmas by Jimmy Buffett. Untraditional, I know, but I love his Christmas music. Thanks for the giveaway!
