We have our guest instructor lined up and he is fabulous. Yes, I said "he". Andrew Hurley is an artist who carves speciality knife handles out of bone. How cool is that. If you visited Jessie at her store, you have seen the beautiful canvas art hanging in the store.

Everyday that we are "At-Sea" which means that we are not in a port, in a Hawaiian island, we will have a free fun event in the afternoon:
*Sept 19 will be the "Meet and Greet" with Jessie and the other cardmakers. Believe me, you will make great friends. If it wasn't for the previous Sailing with Scissors cruise, I wouldn't have known Gail M. Now, she will is my cabin roommate for the Hawaiian cruise.
Jessie will be giving out the goody bags. The bags were fabulous last time; they will be just as awesome for this cruise.
*Sept 20 is the Wood Mount Game - This game was a hit so we brought it back again. However, this time we will make sure no one gets her own rubber stamp back! I messed things up last time. Ha ha. All you need to bring is a wood mount stamp from your stash (you know you have several) that is new, or very slightly used that is at least 2 inches by 3 inches. Jessie has a hilarious stamper story that ensures your beloved stamp will go to a good home and you get a new awesome stamp. We all loved the stamps we received when we played the game in Alaska.
*Sept 21 is a free make n' take which I will be hosting. You will be making a card using a new cool technique. The card and technique will be fabulous. Also, I will have prizes. Can it get better than this.
*Sept 22 is the card swap. You bring a bunch of identical cards (I'll give you the number you need to bring in a new post. Or, just call Jessie at the store) and swap with the other participants. Last time, Jessie was supposed to choose the nicest card. This was an impossible task because all the cards were beautiful. The participants took a vote on which card they liked the best. That person receives a prize. I have used all the cards I received previously for friends and family. They were great. Don't worry if you are a beginner. The simple cards were great for my minimalist friends. Check out the earlier posts with samples of the cards in the Alaskan swap.
*Sept 23 - Our fabulous Jessie will do one of her famous Neat Niques. Every Saturday Jessie hosts a information session on a really neat technique. I have been to several of these sessions and they are really interesting. Bring a pen and a piece of paper to take notes.
--The remainder of the days are "Port days".
*Yes, these events are all free. Please note though, you must sign up for at least TWO classes in order to be a member of the Sailing with Scissors group. Call Jessie at Cherish the Thought to book your classes today.
I don't know how you will be able to pick just two classes...they are all marvelous.

Now that the holidays have come and gone, it's time to focus on Sailing With Scissors to Hawaii.
Can you believe we have eight months until sailing?
We still have the six spots so if you didn't get the gift you wanted for Christmas, treat yourself to a fun cardmaking cruise to Hawaii!
