A Winner, Blog Post Project Sneak Peek, Easter Egg Hunt Time, and News!

 Hello everyone!  First, let's pick the winner of last weeks drawing. Thanks for commenting! I put all three names in a hat, and the winner is ~ Melissa!  Melissa, please send me your snail mail addie and I will pick one card from those pictured below and send it out to you right away with the three little stamps and clear block.  You can email me at pmooie at (please take out the spaces, and put the @ in instead of the word at).

I have a pretty detailed blog post going up on the Bind-It-All Blog this month, not sure when it will be posted, but here is a wee little sneak peek of my project ~ 

Hope you all enjoyed a beautiful Spring week.  It was chilly off and on, but the weather held yesterday for an Easter Egg Hunt.  My hubs and I went to cheer on the oldest grandkiddies (4 year old Kaya and 3 year old Cooper).  It was so fun to watch the kids, little Kaya ran around looking only for pink eggs, while Cooper picked up an egg and thought that was enough.  He eventually picked up a few more eggs, but his favorite part was peeking inside the eggs and chowing down the candy.

Waiting to begin ~

skip those non pink eggs ~

peek inside Kaya's bag, we put the blue egg in there, and the yellow is a coupon ~

Little ones are so funny!  I love that I am fortunate enough to spend time with them.  We are having an egg hunt at our house next Sunday before Easter dinner, all three grandkiddies will be there, plus a few neighbor children.  Hope the weather cooperates!  

OK, remember when I said I had exciting news to share?  I can't give all the details yet, but the news is ~ I will be teaching some online classes soon.  I am so excited, it is going to be amazing!  The format is incredible, and I am fortunate enough to be working with some very talented peeps.  I will share more details as it gets closer. I can tell you though, I am playing with things like this getting ready for one class ~ 

Can't wait to share details, woo!  In the meantime, I better get back to my crafty space and start playing a bit more.  This is one of the fun things about teaching, playing with supplies and developing content.  :)

I wish you a joyful and creative week ~ Pam

Thanks for popping by Pam,
I too love to see a good egg hunt. We have all the Grands over Easter morning, and the hunt is on.
Keep smiling and creating

Hi there! Good to see your pics and your layouts! Congrats on the online classes teaching! How exciting!

How did I come up with Pam's Eclectic Stuff?

Pam- that is me. :)

eclectic --adj.- selecting what seems best of various styles or ideas
*Since I like a huge variety of arts and mediums, this seemed perfect, we will talk about the best of various styles or ideas.

stuff- The noun stuff has 7 senses -
1. material, stuff -- (the tangible substance that goes into the makeup of a physical object; "wheat is the stuff they use to make bread")2. whatchamacallit, stuff, whatsis, sundry, sundries -- (miscellaneous unspecified artifacts; "the trunk was full of stuff")3. stuff, clobber -- (informal terms for personal possessions; "did you take all your clobber?")4. stuff, stuff and nonsense, hooey, poppycock -- (senseless talk; "don't give me that stuff")5. stuff -- (unspecified qualities required to do or be something; "the stuff of heros"; "you don't have the stuff to be a United States Marine")6. stuff -- (information in some unspecified form; "it was stuff I had heard before"; "there's good stuff in that book")7. stuff -- (a critically important or characteristic component; "suspense is the very stuff of narrative")

*What more needs to be said? I really thought about using Pam's Eclectic Sundries, but I thought that might be tough to remember. :) Stuff is easy and conveys a variety of meanings. I like the definition- miscellaneous unspecified artifacts. I also liked whatchamacallit, but that is a lot of typing. :)

So there you have it!
