It's a busy time here in my "creative production headquarters" (LOL). I'm getting ready for a fun weekend next week at Scrapdoodles in Virginia - I'm looking forward to seeing lots of my Virginia and surrounding area friends there and meeting new friends! This is the only place that these classes will be taught on the east coast (other than Florida) so don't miss out, if you're able to join us there. I'm teaching the Memory Collector suitcase, the darling Little Me album, and the My Great Adventure travel album. If you can't make it to class, you can order a class kit and do it at home since the kits come with color photos and directions.
I'm super excited to have added some new dates AND new stores to my schedule - you can see them in the sidebar to the right. I'll have more info about what I'm teaching at each store soon. I want to be able to link you to the class information, so I'll do that as soon as the stores give me the green light that they are ready to take registrations.
I'm also sorting through the catalogs and samples from CHA - putting together the giant puzzle that is involved in planning new classes for later this fall.
I LOVE it but it's a little stressful - to figure out what is available when, what samples I still need, what would be a project that I would want to make myself, what new techniques to teach for our memory-keeping, to keep within a budget (my favorite class to plan would be one that would include everything I want to use and then figure out the price - kind of like my state keepsake albums), and keeping it all straight in my mind. God is good - He'll keep me inspired with ideas as long as He wants me to keep doing what I'm doing!
For my new classes I'm planning on my annual Christmas album, of course, and am thinking of doing a "planner" for the new year - that could be used in a variety of ways - what would you like to have included in a planner album? A third new class is still in the inspiration stage - meaning I have no idea yet! :) Any ideas of what you'd like in a class?
I'm going to send a box of samples that I know I won't be using (and maybe some other older goodies) to someone who comments on this blog post with what they'd like to see in a class by Sunday, August 10, at 9pm Eastern time. Thank you!!
