October Classes

Teaching these classes has been so much fun - I have met a lot of new friends.  Not to mention what a small world it is when we find out we have so many friends in common!

I just updated the schedule for the October classes, and I think I may add a Gypsy 2 class.  I'll have a better idea after tomorrow night's first class.  :)  And I'm very excited about my first Cricuteer Class on October 4 at the Little Blue House in Keller!  We'll be etching glass to make a Halloween treat jar - as spooky as you want it - using the Cricut to create our stencil. 

And later in October I get to be a student at a Zentangle class.  I looked up Zentangle after watching the Taco Tuesday video from Ten Seconds Studio where Megan and Cheryl were doodling on the metal.  I was as intrigued by the name as the technique!  I have been doing my own version every since then, and if I've seen you, I probably showed it to you.  It is too much fun!  And then I find out that my creative friend Angie is a certified Zentangle teacher!  So she's holding a class at the Crafty Hen House and I am already signed up.

And last but not least, a shout out to the Texas Rangers - AL West Division Champs.  Woo Hoo!

Spooky Project at Little Blue House!

I'm about work on my spooky project for my class at The Little Blue House in October.  We don't have all the details worked out, but I'm sure we will  very soon!

New to Blogging

When I was little, I watched Cinderella live on television with Lesley Ann Warren as Cinderella.  One of the songs she sang has been in my head for 40-something years now, so I decided to quit fighting it and just go with it.

Cinderella sang:
     In my own little corner
     In my own little chair
     I can be whatever I want to be.

So this is my corner where I am no longer wife, mother, daughter, friend, or relative, and there is no laundry, dishes, sweeping or dusting here.  The problem is that I'm not completely sure what I want to be when I'm in my own little corner of the world.

For now, I am teaching Cricut and scrapbooking classes and I LOVE it!  I don't want to be a school teacher  - way too much responsibility for molding those young minds. I don't want to be the one creating all the projects (I'm not that good at it anyway), so teaching is the perfect fit.  I teach basic classes at the Crafty Hen House in Bedford, and I'm going to The Little Blue House in Keller in October with a spooky Cricut project.  Check the Classes Page for the schedule!
