New Quickutz "Fiesta" set. I love the packaging --it totally coordinates with our "Party" class!
Today was the first of two "Where's the Party?" classes. It went great! I have to say that we have some truly wonderful ladies that come to classes at Scrappin' Good Times. They make it a pleasure and a joy to teach there. A big thanks to everyone who came today!
This class was also the first time I've partnered with my good friend Kristin Hayne to teach a class. She was AWESOME! Not only is she a wonderful designer, but an excellent teacher and great motivator too. She's so organized and efficient --she made sure we got our class sample done in plenty of time for last month's kick-off and also was super about keeping us on our toes about getting the class kits ready. Love that girl!
Did you notice my subject line? Well, somehow I scheduled my April and May classes closer together than I usually do, and it's been quite a challenging few weeks. Last week was "Intro to Scrapbooking" (another great class --lots of *new* faces whenever I do the Intro sessions), and in about two weeks is the second "Party" class. Whew --that's a whole lotta class kits! I've been driving my poor little "Cricut" so hard that I think I may have done him in. The poor little machine was starting to smell a bit while it was cutting and then it got so tired that it would only cut through the first image on a page. For the rest of the images, it would act like it was cutting, but it was only pretending.
Fortunately, when the machine started acting up I had finished most of my cutting. Somehow I managed to get enough of that last piece cut for today's class (talk a sigh of relief).
So, the point of all this... me and my baby bug are tired!
