Back from teaching weekend in Orange, CA

img_2304

Miss E and I are just back, unpacked, and all dogs (and her sister!) have been collected from our whirlwind trip to Orange, CA for classes at Stamp Fever. It was an absolutely wonderful trip and if you have the chance I strongly recommend visiting and taking classes there! Not only was the staff really wonderful but all the ladies that attended were lovely and the classroom was fun to teach in.

I taught three different classes over 2 days Рa canvas, card making, and a giftable items class as well. These were so much fun Рand it was great having an assistant too! Here are some photos of setting up and the shop:

We had so much fun creating and sharing ideas. My favorite part? Always seeing how the students take ideas and make them their own. Watching ladies come up with their own spin, direction, or otherwise playing in ways that make them happy! As much as I love teaching online there is definitely something special about in person events. Of course the prep and hard work is intense – but it’s worth it! We had such a good time that we’re already plotting a return visit for spring or early summer…

Stay tuned, because I think we will try to bring more classes in California and beyond in 2017! Have a favorite store or place you wish I’d visit? Let me know!

  1. I so wanted to attend one of these classes! Unfortunately, my son had a tournament. Maybe next year!

  2. How much fun! I’m sure your able assistant enjoyed the trip, too. Nice to be able to combine work and family at the same time!

  3. I so wish I could have come since that’s not too far from me but was at my daughter’s band tournament. Any chance you could come teach at my lss – Pages of Thyme in Mission Viejo? It’s the last remaining lss in south Orange County.

  4. You should try to come to MegaMeet, Michigan’s paper-crafting convention. I would totally take a class from you there.
