One of the things I have planned for the Christmas shop is a plate rail on the upper back wall to hold all my Christmas plates.
Club member, Barb Striethorst, taught a workshop on bulrushes/cattails, water lilies and dandelions tonight. Barb is an incredible teacher who not only supplies wonderfully complete kits but also writes some of the absolutely BEST instructions I have ever seen!

I didn't take part in the workshop (although I did buy the cattail and dandelion kits). Instead I took the printie for the modern cash register from Small Stuff (formerly Jim Collins') printable site. As you can see, my folds are not as crisp as they should be. I`m going to try to clean that up and make it more realistic looking. One thing I did do was print it on plain paper as well as cardstock and cut a slit where the cash register receipt comes out and insert the plain paper cut out of the receipt in the slit to give it another dimension.
