More classes

I am having the time of my life. I just added a second round of the scrapbook course in the Pelham Manor,NY store. I have also set up my first classes in the Michael's in Hartsdale,NY store.

As a certified SDU (Scrapbook Design and You) instructor I feel very honored to teach this course. I am in my "element" teaching others something I truly enjoying doing. So, tomorrow night's class is actually "hands-on" This is going to be so much fun. Colored paper. glue, and scissors, oh my!

1st Class

Friday 8/13, the 1st night of my first SDU class. It was great. I finished the 2 hours feeling motivated to teach the best scrapbook classes ever. Having never taught a scrap class before, I thought I would be intimidated by scrappers with more experience. Funny thing though, I have always enjoyed sharing and learning with/from others, and this experience was no different.
The time flew by. I am looking forward to actual "hands on" scrapping this Friday night.
I am setting up additional classes in my home store and classes at another M's location.
I also want to thank all the other online SDU instructors at yahoogroups. You have all been so generous with your ideas and kind words. Keep up the good work.
It is Sunday afternoon, this is actually my only day off, to just hang out at home, in the past few weeks. I hope you,too, are enjoying your day.

It's almost time

I have several sign ups for my Friday (8/13) first class. I am so looking forward to this. I have started a basic outline for the class. I was so happy on Thurday past, I received my SDU course completion certificate, a great SDO pin, and the "holy grail"" sdu book. The full color book. I do have a b/w copy pulled from the store email. but this is my own copy.YES!

I have made several scrap pages and framed in the 12x12 scrapbook frames we sell at Michael's. I am so lucky, my manager is so cool, and extremely supportive...he sees the big picture. Customers really need to see finished items to spark their own creativity, and he let's me do this with lots of in store projects. Thanks, Bob.

Enjoy the week, cherish every moment, spread joy and be awe inspired.
