Where am I? Teaching, Creating, & Sharing.

It’s been a while since I updated everyone as to where I am,  so I am using this post to fill you in.

Every Tuesday a.m I am still teaching some kind of paper craft class in my home studio.. I will be hitting my 7 year anniversary of that in January.

Wednesday’s I will be teaching either a private class in my studio, a make up class or a class at my local Hobby Lobby. I have been the paper craft instructor at my hobby lobby since 2009. My local hobby lobby is moving to a new location in January, once we are settled in I will hold a new store crop there and giveaway classes, supplies, and more. So look out for details regarding that special crop event.  I also do evening classes if I am repeating a class or if someone schedules a class for that time. Most of my private classes are now evening classes.

I teach a kids craft class once a month during the school year. These classes are usually Friday’s at 1:30-3:30 and are typically seasonal or holiday projects.

Besides teaching a few classes a week, I also sell kits to all the classes I teach. So if you can’t make it to a class, you can at least get a kit and make it on your own.

I am still teaching cricut classes, mini albums, cards, stamping, tool training, scrapbooking, and more.
Just because my business name is Scrap It Girl.. please don’t think I only scrap. In fact.. my Tuesday class has been more altered art, home décor and holiday décor projects more than it has been scrapbooking.

Besides my paper craft classes.. I still host birthday parties, in store event, classes at schools, crops, and I sell supplies. But more often than not.. you can find me on-line. I have 5 blogs/websites, 5 Facebook business pages, tons of twitter, pinterest, and instagram accounts. So I am on-line a lot of the time. I am also trying to finish up some on-line classes I started early in the summer.. this has been taking up so much time that I slowed down my class schedule. Once I finish with my classes you will see more changes to my on-line accounts.

I still get offered plenty of opportunities to work with many great companies.. but with my busy schedule I plan to hold off on working with any more until January. I will be having a new Design Team call in January in preparation for new things to come. So I hope you apply!

Take a look at some of the companies you can find me currently connected to.
I love them all and I am grateful for all the great opportunities I am given. It’s been a bumpy ride getting to work with amazing companies.. but I know that the ones I am connected to right now are the best I have been with and I am lucky!

Where am I ?? Good question~

The snow has finally melted off of the top of our pool, now I know, Spring is on its way!    I love the changing of seasons!  I use that as a perfect time to make a few changes in my personal life and business life.

I am often asked, “Where are you working now?  Where are you teaching?  Who are you working for?”  Then I have to ask myself.. Really? Where am I? 

Coincidently I just updated my “working” resume and my “craft” resume.  I am surprised how often changes are made to the craft resume.  Mainly just adding new locations or changing the dates of past design team terms.  However, when I answer those questions about where I am, most of the time the answers are the same.

I am still the Paper Craft Instructor at the Kenosha Hobby Lobby, in fact I have been there since 2009.   I still have my ties to the Kenosha Public Museum, area schools, the country club, and stores.  But most of the time I am teaching in my home studio and classroom.  I have a few proposals on the table for a few other locations to start teaching at.. but that’s on hold till we finalize the details.  I am still a Close To My Heart consultant and of course the owner of my Scrap It Girl business.  I am a full-time paper craft instructor, designer, and retailer.

My classes range from Scrapbooking, Card Making, Tool & Technique classes, Cricut Classes, Kids Crafts, Home/Holiday Décor,  Mixed Media and Altered Art.   I teach about 2-5 classes per week, but every week is different.  I am currently scheduling myself at the Kenosha Hobby Lobby 2 times per month and 2 times per month at other locations.  The rest of the classes will be in my home studio.    Another huge question I get is.. how do I find out about your classes?  Easy answer.. just ask me, message me, or call me.   My class schedule, info, price, and additional info, is emailed out once a week.   I do have a class every Tuesday at 9:30-11:30 a.m and 5:30-7:30 p.m.   I usually have Kids Classes on Friday’s.  My private classes are all over the place, same with group events.  But I am available to teach pretty much any day or time of the week, as long as you let me know in advance.  This is my full-time job, so I try to meet with you according to your schedule.  I also have women that schedule private classes for groups of their friends.  I have had bridal shower parties come in and make what they need for a brides wedding, a baby shower class, and even a graduation party.  I can either help with the ideas of planning, decorating, or maybe just renting out my tables and party props.   I also make party invites, decorations, and help set up.

Here are just a few pictures of recent happenings…
