Wow, what a weekend. I taught two classes this weekend at Scrapbook Territory they were really fun. In both classes I had a mom bring their child with them for an artistic sharing day. It was brought back to me, how kids just aren't afraid to jump in there and create. They are not afraid of color or making a mistake, they just create. I think some of the adults were just a little intimadated. Got together with some friends Saturday night and had fun eating, drinking a little wine and stamping cards. Well I got to do cards after I finished cutting my paper for class the next day. This week I'm actually teaching a Dreamweaver Stencil class so I off to start getting ready.
