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…
Between teaching, kitting, designing, and blogging about classes, I also take classes. I know how important it is to stay up to date with the newest tools, brands, and collections.
