A short while ago, I mentioned that I was going to hold a class for our local Family and Community Education Council in Hilo, Hawaii. This was part of the Council’s annual R&R weekend at Volcano National Park.
What fun we all had! All of the cards were great! They ranged from those that tried to meticulously reproduce the sample cards to, well VERY creative!! And the most creative one was my absolute favorite.
Imagine, if you will, nine novice paper crafters with scissors and paper cutters and punches and stamps–mistakes were bound to be made! Well, actually, I really tried to convince all that there are no mistakes–there are just "design modifications"! But whether they were mistakes or design modifications, there were trimmings and scraps all over the place.
Enter the lady with absolutely no desire to be a copycat! Suddenly she had a card with so many scallops and ribbons that everyone was just fascinated with what she made! What fun–and how creative!! And that is, after all, what R&R weekends are made of.
Don’t forget that, any time you want me to recreate this atmosphere for you, I am here to do it! Get some friends together and have me over to demonstrate some cards or scrapbook pages. I’m available for pretty much any schedule (but not 24/7–that would be our ONLINE ORDERING SYSTEM–Have you tried it out yet?). And I am able to design a program for just about any theme in which you might be interested. So call or e-mail me today!
