workshop samples…

hey bloggers!  i've been busy around here and finally managed to work off my candy buzz from the weekend.  i just finished up all of my class samples for my workshops this weekend at scrapbook territory in berkley, ca.  i am very excited to teach these 3 new workshops for 2009.  i'm looking forward to hanging out with my students this weekend!  if you're not in these classes, check out my calendar for other dates and places i'll be this year (although i may not be teaching these same workshops so check with the stores.)…

we've also been getting more kits and make & takes ready for the rep show i'm doing next week after my workshops. we're heading out friday morning to the store to teach the weekend, then the rep show for 3 days, then after that, i'm home for a day and we're off to south africa to teach for 2 weeks!  i can't wait – what a whole new adventure this will be…

so, here are the projects – i know many of you ask if i'll post instructions for store workshops on my blog, but i can't since these are exclusive to the students at stores i'll be teaching throughout the year.  maybe a kit or two is in the future though…who knows?…t!m
