Hello Uppercase Living Friends!

Fall is in the air, and it's time for my next project night! It will be held on October 1st at 6:30 PM at my home. Take a look at the projects available and let me know if you are interested in attending and which projects you'd like to do. As always, there will be a free project for each participant, so be sure to join me. If you have a friend that might be interested in doing a project or two, please forward this email to them. And please, if you no longer wish to receive emails from me, just reply to this email with "unsubscribe" in the subject line and I won't bug you anymore! :-)

Also, the new 2010-2011 Idea Book has just been released and you can look through it while you're here. In addition, we have a new holiday mini-catalog with projects and gifts galore for the holidays, and you can see some of those items when you come to the project night. If you book an open house, you'll get an idea book as a gift! I've got two dates open for September, so be sure to contact me quickly if you are interested in earning free and half price products.

Deadline to sign up is Thursday, September 9! All projects must be paid for at time of sign up. If you can't make the project night, you may still order any project to do on your own.

Project 1 - Clay Jack-O-Lanterns ($15.00)
These two happy faces make fun additions to your fall decor. This is an easy project for first timers! :)

Project 2 - Faith, Hope, Love Hurricanes with Candles ($30.00)
This is a project that can be displayed all year long. The candles sit on a rock base and go with any decor.

Project 3 - "Fall" acrylic block - ($26.00; $30.00 with lights).
This acrylic block is filled with cream colored tulle and has the capacity to be filled with white lights if you desire. You may also purchase an expression for the other side of the block (I recommend the "Peace" expression for Christmas; add $12.00), so that you can use the block throughout the holiday season. This block comes with a "fall" ribbon and leaves, but the ribbon can be replaced with a coordinating Christmas ribbon if you choose to get both designs.
Project 4 - Child's initial and name canvas board ($24.00)
This is a fun and easy way to personalize a child's room. You will get a pre-drilled, pre-painted, white canvas board and an initial and the child's first and middle name in your choice of colors. Ribbon does not come with this project because personal styles vary so much; however, if you trust my judgment, I can pick up the ribbon for you. Also, if you would like the "flower" medallion to hang your canvas board on, please add $6.50.
Project 5 - Children's name or art board with clips ($35.00 - $48.00 depending on wording and number of letters in name)
This is a great project for all of the artwork and spelling test papers that your kids bring home. You can choose to have just your child's name, or the "Look what I did" expression. You can also add a 3" embellishment ( $3.00) to your child's name that represent what your child is "in to." For example, if your child is into trains, we can order a train (or two) to add to the board. We have all kinds of embellishments to meet almost any interest. Give me a call to discuss your options and I can quote you a price.

Project 6 - 4 Tile Coasters with initial ($10.00)
I know that I offer this project each time, but it is seriously such a simple project and it makes such a great gift. Let me know the initial you would like me to order. You will receive 4 tiles, felt backing, 4 initials (your choice of color/font), and black ribbon to neatly tie them all together.

Project 7 - Name/Date tile (Price as shown: $25.00) - You'll get a 12 x 12 tile, a 10" initial, name, and est. date, and the wrought iron plate stand. The price is based on a five letter last name. Longer last names will be an additional $1.25 per letter.

Personalize Your Party!

Just thought I might remind you all that you can use any photo to create a "Photo Vinyl" print to make your party a little more personal. Here's a photo print that I did for my son's graduation party, but you can do them for special anniversaries, birthdays, retirements, baby showers, weddings, and so forth. Plus, all photo vinyl is removable and reusable! And.....right now, it is BUY ONE, GET ONE FREE on all Uppercase Living expressions! So, you can buy any one expression and get another of equal or lesser value for FREE! How's that for some summertime fun?!

Let me know if you want to place an order. You may also go directly to my website: to order.

May Project Night

Just thought I'd share some pictures my daughter took at my last project night. Be on the lookout for an late summer Project night to coincide with the release of the new catalog! Fun times!

Checking to see if the Mystick is dry so A. can take off the top layer.

J. works carefully to finish her project. Way to go, J; you're doing it all on your own!

There is a free project for each person who signs up for a project night.
Here C. works on her photo board.

A.'s project is "in process." She was just making sure her expression
looked level before she applied it.

Children's Room Expression

I had a fun time putting up a new expression in the children's room at our church. The room's theme is extreme sports, and the children's director thought this verse would be great on the wall. Just thought you might want to see it.

First, we had to tape up the expressions to get them where we thought we wanted them. Because the expression was so long, we had to create it in pieces and them put them all together.
Then, piece by piece we leveled and applied the expressions.
And, then......wah-lah! It's all up!
You'll have to check back in to see the skateboard silhouettes that will be placed above the half-pipes in the room. They'll look great.

Thanks for stopping by the ol' blog!

November Project Day Pictures

Okay, I never got around to posting pictures of the last project day! All I can say is that life gets busy sometimes and certain things just get pushed to the back burner even though we don't want them to. So, without further ado, here's what you missed. And.....if you think this all looks fun, my next project day will be announced here shortly, so be on the lookout for that!

Coasters are always fun to make!
Below is one of the projects for the day. Twelve of these personalized tiles were made, most of them as gifts.
These ornaments were one of the free projects offered. There is a free project for each participant at my project days. You never know what you might get to go home with!
Another project from the November Project Day. This is great for all the spelling tests and art projects your kids bring home from school.
Here's the free project table. Quite a bit of visiting and laughter took place around this table.
One customer made a set of glass coasters with snowflakes. Perfect for winter and a great gift idea!
Debbie contemplating putting the second part on her "Family" board.
I've got two great helpers who always show up to lend their expertise. Maghan and Mindy (in green) rock! Mindy is due any time with her precious first baby! Can't wait to meet that sweet thing!
Here's Maghan helping Debbie with the second part of her expression.
I think my friend, Janet, would be just as happy if I just did her projects for her! ;)
See all the fun you missed! Plan now to join me for my next project day which will take place in April; we'll have all kinds of fun!
