good things...


i don't think i have told ya'll that i am going to be in Edmonton, Canada to teach classes at Scrapfest (www.scrapfest.ca)... i am so excited to be doing this. i will be teaching 3 classes in all and here is a sneak at one of my classes for an art inspiration journal. i have spent some time tweaking my classes but thankfully i have some generous and kind companies who are helping make our class kits fun. my classes are being sponsored by the duck adhesive people (henkel), therm-o-web and for paper we have the following each sponsoring one of my classes - urban lily, fontwerks and paper heart studio. i can't thank these kind companies enough for their generous nature.

the classes aren't til the end of september but with my planning nature, i am starting to get things ready. it is funny b/c i just started a NERDY spreadsheet to make sure that i pack my class kits correctly (for example - how many of what goes in each kit) - just so i don't forget! then my spreadsheet also has "tools" i might need to get, and templates i want to get together. i still need to do my powerpoint presentation (haven't used those skillz since i was an engineer) and i always like to have surprises in my classes to keep it fun. i think MR will have a small goodie for each kit and some other surprises that i don't want to tell yet (smile).

but most of all i hope that the ppl attending my class feel free to ask me questions about MR - we like to keep it real and i hope by doing these classes it shows. i am no different than the millions of other working moms out there who scrapbook and even the stay at home moms too.

so it is back to spreadsheeting i go!
