Bling it on Canada” was fabulous. Teresa Collins was very impressed with our city, its hospitality, talented teachers, The Scrap Yard store, the venue in which it was held. She has posted great accolades on her blog. Her only complaint was coming through customs at the airport and the first question they asked her was “Have you ever had a DUI?” ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!!! That was embarrassing.
Shabby Chic” classes take a break after the Dec 13th class. They will resume the week of January 7, 2013
Imagine 2.0 was announced at the end of the “Bling it on Canada” event. The attendees of “Bling it on Canada” had first chance to register. The next round of registration is opened up today to the attendees of the first “Imagine” event held last April. The event date is April 19-21, 2013. Venue is Red Deer Lake Community Hall (pending booking confirmation). Some format changes are: There will be a class on Friday night so the Sunday classes can end earlier. There will still be 6 fabulous classes in the following styles – Shabby Chic, Grunge, Mixed Media, Jewellery, Altered Art and something new that we discover at CHAW2013. Lori, Susan and Lynn will be instructing. Home cooked meals and snacks provided. A non-refundable deposit of $100 is required to book your spot. Final payment is due February 1, 2013. No refunds will be provided. You can send someone in your spot if you can’t attend. Total cost for the weekend is $399.99.
NOTE: Basic Grey “Page-of-the-Month” class will be the first Wednesday in January for the December layout. Who is interested in continuing this class for 2013? I have to make my commitment soon to order the kits for another year. This class happens once a month and you do a double page layout using the most current Basic Grey collection. You end up with lots of left over product to make cards or add to other layouts you are working on. Cost is $24.99/class with a commitment of 12 layouts.
Have you registered for the new session of “The Happiness Journal”? In January we will be starting the new book called “Happier at Home” by Gretchen Rubin. Lynn will be continuing her shabby style of altering this hardcover book. Space is limited to 16 participants. Register ASAP.
