I survived the March Make-n-Take Madness of 2012 and I've got the shirt to prove it. Well, maybe I don't have a shirt to prove it. But anyway, to describe the event in one word --it was AWESOME! We had a packed house and even had a line waiting outside before the doors opened. Now that's hardcore scrap love!
I had such a wonderful time meeting a bunch of new crafy friends and teaching them new and fun techniques. I even learned a few things from them...which is always a plus. I was humbled that so many followed my work online already and were looking forward to sitting at my table. It made me feel really proud of doing what I do. What can I say...the teachers and designers present were amazing, the staff at the store worked their tails off but most importantly everyone had a wonderful time. Here are some pictures from the event. :)
This is me the morning of the event --not bad for 3.5 hours of sleep. Too much anticipation to sleep! Check out my necklace --it says "I shoot people for a living." LOL! It was a gift from Shelley who is on the Maya Road Design Team. Thanks, Shelley!!
Store Owner, Carolyn...she's off her rocker funny! Almost as funny as I am. :p
These lovely ladies were in my first group...I love that every single canvas looked so different!
We had a very special guest --Lisa Pace! She had a trunk show going on while the rest of us did our Make-n-Take's. She's a sweetheart!
This is the project that I taught. I had a lot of awesome feedback and people just loved making this. My favorite part was watching some of the ladies stare at their project and say things like "Wow, I made this." Just awesome!
This is my table --look at everyone creating their little canvases. So much fun!
