Planning Ahead

A lot has happened in one week. We were going to sell our Cricut-made products in a new store opening up in town, but the deal breaker for us was the class opportunities. We were going to be charged $25 to teach one class and in this economy and knowing how much people are willing to pay for classes it just wasn't realistic. I'm sure it will be a great store, but teaching classes while selling our products was the draw. Oh well, I still have a place I really love to teach at so I really am OK. Here are some samples of what my next Cricut classes in March will feature:

The Disney Tink and wand were part of a swap I was in and I did the little girl & owl. I wanted to show examples of layering with the cartridges. Classes are Tuesday, Mar. 16 & Sat., Mar. 20 both at 10 am for $6. You can sign-up at Roseburg Book and Stationery.

Speaking of classes I finished the class sample for Scrapbook Fun Fest. I am calling it "Suitable for Framing" .

Rod is making frames for everyone who takes the class. It is included in the price of the class. The finished project measures 8" x 8". Cost is $15. All our classes for Scrapbook Fun Fest will be on the website for tickets sales the first week in March.

I Bad

I can't believe it has been so long since my last blog. I think we have been sympathizing with everyone who has been snowbound and snowbound ourselves without the snow. LOL

I did make a few things for Valentine's Day for Rod's Mom and her friends she eats with...filled with CANDY!

Since only his Mom and another lady showed up for lunch they got two boxes full of candy each. They definitely did not complain.

I also have been teaching Cricut Basic 101 classes and taking more of Krista's great classes.

We are getting things ready to move our handmade products into a new "craft boutique" which is opening in town. There will be a little bit of everything. Better than a craft mall, just short of a gallery. We start moving things in this weekend. It will be nice to have our creations out there year-round for purchasing instead of bringing it only out for shows.

I think I am going to add gift boxes and bags to my line for the new store. I had so much fun making the candy boxes for Valentine's Day. Quick & simple!

New Cricut Class

I have scheduled a new class at Roseburg Book and Stationery on Thursday, Feb. 11, 10 am - $8 and Saturday, Feb. 13, 10 am - $8. The project orientated class is "How to Cut Chipboard"

The finished project measures 5 1/2" and includes everything you need to make one shape book, either one of the samples or one of your choice.
