back from scrapfest...

well, i had a BLAST at scrapfest - meet up with some really nice ladies that i often chat with online but have not gotten to meet in person.

some of my highlights include:

1. getting to sport my touque (aka winter hat) and wicked socks
2. teaching 3 fab classes with such nice ladies
3. meeting other teachers from all over north america
4. seeing my friend melissa
5. coming home to see my baby and david

i truly enjoyed teaching each of my classes. i will admit now that i was a bit nervous before the whole thing with teaching. to be honest i had not taught before in this type of setting but when i got to my classes, i LOVED it! it really reminded me that when i was in high school, i was trying to decide between teaching and engineering (At the time the dollar $ign$ won out - LOL). i hope that everyone in my classes came away with lots of ideas that they can apply to other projects!

here is one of the classes i taught:

as i was cleaning out my luggage today, i realized that i have about 6-8 of these class kits left to create this project. and i am going to offer them up here. i want to do this b/c i want the proceeds of the kits to go to a good cause - samaritan's purse (http://www.samaritanspurse.org/) - so for every kit that we sell - 100% of the cost of what we are charging (minus the shipping) will go in the form of a cash donation to this organization. deb, david, david and i (and the babies too) support this organization every year and this is a great way for us to raise some more funds for them. so i am estimating if we can sell these kits, we can raise $150 ($25 /kit minus about $5.00 for shipping/kit = $20 / kit to donate * 8 kits = $160)

so with that, you will get for $25 (which includes s/h in the US) the following:

1. a tin of maya road bottlecaps

2. a b/w handout copies of my instructions for putting this together

3. all the papers in the project

4. a MR keychain (which you can use for another project)

5. 2-3 MR wire flowers

6. 3 large chipboard MR blossoms (varied - might be different than the one in the pic)

7. 4-6 small chipboard MR blossoms

8. a MR swirl stamp

9. MR ribbon

10. a vintage bottlecap (that i bought on ebay)

11. a pkg of adhesive (will vary with what i have left from the kits)

12. a paper template for the background and the bottlecaps (makes for easier cutting).

13. 4-6 med MR blossom chipboards

and as always, i will try to throw in some other goodies in there that we have around.

if you are interested in this kit, please email me at info@mayaroad.com - i can only take paypal for this kit and if you get it, there are no refunds.

thanks again to everyone at scrapfest. i had an awesome time!
