Party was a success! Great time was had by all!


The party was April 28 from 1 to 3 PM at the Estates of Fort Lauderdale clubhouse.
The theme with springtime! You wouldn’t have known it by the weather. It was drizzly and nasty outside. But the weather inside was fun warm and inspiring! And a great time was had by all !
The project was a Spring explosion box. It was an easy enough project for beginners to do, and feel accomplished. I also included enough papers and embellishments so that after the project they could complete a few layouts with what was left Photos are below.
Everyone had a great time! I’m pretty sure everyone was pleased with the results! Smiles were not in short supply
If you live in the South Florida area, and would like to know more about the class schedule, please contact me for details! We’d love to have you come join the fun!

Getting Out There


Hi !!!
it’s Thursday, and I’m just thinking today about new ways to find new students. Sometimes, in this economy, as a teacher, that can be challenging. I don’t want to keep approaching the same people all the time. In order to introduce new people to the craft, you have to be creative and think out-of-the-box sometimes.
For example, this Sunday I’m going to meet an activities director at a nursing home. She told me that some of her residents have wanted to make cards for anniversaries, their grandchildren’s birthday, et cetera. So I’m going to meet her on Sunday afternoon and show her some samples of cards. And propose a card making class once a month.
I am also approaching an activities director at the country club. These are some things that I would never would have thought of in the past. I would love to hear about how other people market their services /classes in different ways. Care to share?
