When Life Hands you Lemons...

I'm drowning in lemonade over here.

I got in touch with the manager at the hobby/craft shop on the neighboring base and it's a no-go. :( It's not that she's not interested. Apparently she has trouble getting groups of ladies to come in for classes. A big part of it is location. They're on an annex type base, about 15 minutes away from the main base. Plus the store is tucked away in the corner. But, she did tell me that when she had classes on my base she had a bit of success. So with a good luck wish from her, I'm back at square one.

However, she did ask that I call back after summer vacation. She may need an instructor for crafts aimed towards kids and teens.

I started another blog for my Memory-Works stuff. On that one (aimed primarily at beginners), I have an entry about the basics of scrapbooking. I plan on adding more. That site is also going to be layouts made with brands from MW and sketches to go along with the lo. I'm pretty excited about it, although I do wish my writing capabilities were better. Ah well.

Still busy with craft fair junk. I want to get started with cards, but I'm waiting for some stamp sets (all clear stamps were 40% off at Joanns), an embossing heat tool, and some powders to come in. I found a 6 pack of Pearl Ex powders for $6 on ebay...and also scored a 12 pack of Craft Essentials embossing powders for $5 from the same lady!

I don't have any layouts to show right now. Unless you're interested in scrapbooks in a box or paper bag albums. LOL. However, the new Mojo layout is due soon as well as a scrapbookmate lo, so I should have something in a day or so. But for now, I'm off to eat some sushi. It's been so long since I've had it!!

Well I am sorry to hear that the neighboring base store wasn't much help. I hope you are able to do the craft thing for the kids if you are interested in that. YOU CAN DO IT!
