Resolution One - Blog

So, let's see if this resolution lasts longer than the diet.....

Happy New Year to everyone. Last year was such a life changing year for us that our only possible response was to stay at home, be asleep by 11 after some fabulous hamburgers for dinner. Ah, la vida loca.

I am publishing this address to all who have taken classes from me in the bay area and I thought I would take a minute to tell you what I plan to do so that when it doesn't happen you can call me on it.

I intend to write about new things that I see that you may all be interested in. This is not a commercial for product or for a store, this is stuff that I see that is new and fresh and fun.

I intend to write about techniques that I come across. This may be in the form of me putting up pictures or, more likely, a link to another site that showed me something that I didn't know or forgot about. Sometimes some of the best techniques are those that we knew once and forgot.

I intend to tell you all where I will be and what I will be doing. There is a Where's Sue section on the page that has all of my schedule that I know of listed. If you have questions, write. If you need pictures, I will generally rely on the store site that I will be teaching at to give you the description and pictures. After a class has been offered, I will let you know if the store will be selling kits. Kits will be sold at the class price and anything that was unique to the class environment (stamps, tools, etc.) will be done for you in the kit and pictures of the finished pages will be provided in the kit.

I intend to ask you what you want to make. See the poll at the right and vote for any that you are interested in. I am currently working on class subjects for February, so speak up now. If there are things that you want that are not listed, send them to me and I will add them to the poll.

I think that's enough for now. The page layout class at Scrapbook Depot is very very cute. I will let you know when the pictures are available. There is also a Valentine Acrylic album class there. We are using the acrylic books from Pageframe Designs which allow you to use a cropadile on the pages so some different embellishments for that one. Is very cute. I made the LOVE album with the BoBunny product (see prior posts) with a student the other day, and it came out really well. The thing I like about both projects at Scrapbook Territory is that they can stand up on a table. Very cute.

Wishing you all the best of everything in the new year. Looking back on 2007, the happiness of teaching all of you will stand out as one of the highlights of the year for me.
