exciting news!

I have some exciting news to share! This fall, I will be teaching at:
&

I had just started creating content for a class here on my blog when I got e-mails from both of these wonderful sites. Of course I could not pass up the opportunity to work with two of the leading companies in the industry so I set aside the class I was working on and switched gears.  

I'll tell you more soon about all three classes. The Big Picture and Masterful Scrapbook Design classes will both be available in September. I can't believe I'm joining this group of talented ladies at BPC and this group of talent at MSD. I'm still pinching myself. 

I know you've probably been wondering why I haven't shared anything creative lately (like my Artful Memory Planner). It's because for the last six weeks, I've been working on creating content for three classes: creating two from start to finish (my own and the one for BPC), taking photos, filming videos, making layouts, photographing layouts, writing about the layouts, creating printables, class outlines, step by step instructions...it's a very big task that includes making about 20 layouts and almost 20 videos. In the same time frame, I'm taping, editing and airing the Scrap Gals podcast, creating and teaching my handmade cards class at Hobby Lobby and managing our very active community on Facebook

It's a lot of work but I love every minute of it. I wake up every day feeling blessed and happy to have the opportunity to do what I love!
