Did you know we had a train derailment in Pukekohe last week? The kids thought it was incredibly exciting. I admit I was keen to go down to the station for a look as well. Noone was hurt in the crash, just feelings I suspect, and perhaps the occasional can of peaches ;o)
The sight of the peaches and the resulting conversations with the kids firmly embedded this song in my mind (vaughan if you are reading this, make sure you click the link - talk about bring back memories!).
Ok massive Crafting Connection update... I've been working my tail off with these classes and have a few updates.
Confessions - I was really specific on the photos you have to bring and have heard a few people are worried about getting it right - don't worry about it! Just bring along 6-8 B&w pics and we'll crop them in class! No stress allowed. I need you as refreshed and rested as possible because this is a seriously fast paced class. LOL.
If you have a Crop-O-Dile, bring it along.
If you have one of those cheap $2 shop silver type 1/4 inch punches - bring it along.
If you have a scoring blade for your trimmer, bring it along.
Acrylic blog and ink.. bring them along.
If you could pass the word around about these things - please do so.
BTW BasicGrey and CherryArte gave me tonnes of wicked cool prizes for this class. Love prizes LOL.
Conversations: Again, if you have a crop-o-dile, bring it along.
Constant reminders. If you are having trouble coming up with 6 pics that are YOU.. ask your kids or your hubby. I asked my hubby what it was around the home that were dinstinctly me and he listed about a dozen things in 3 minutes. Including the vaccuum. And the rum bottle. What's he trying to say?!
Again, Crop-o-dile if you have it.
Important - the adhesive must be a tape runner - and best of all is the see-through type, not the type that puts down'tabs'.
Again, if you can, pass this info around blogs and groups of those you know that are taking my classes.
A preview of the Constant Reminders Class.
OH - By the way - I got an email from Kelly Rotherham today - during the Crafting Connection events she will be doing a heap of Mini-classes etc FREE - so there is like a crop room that is open all the time and freebie make n takes, classey things.
Just a little over a week to go before I'm on the way to Sydney.
