Throw Back Thursday

About this time two years ago, I held my very first card making class. I was very nervous, but friends came along to support me and it all went well. A lady came all the way from South Devon, much to my surprise, and I’m happy to say she was at last week’s class too. My numbers have more than doubled since then and I’ve started a second class in another nearby town, which is growing rapidly.

I thought I’d share my post from that day for Throw Back Thursday.

What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday ~ 176

I didn’t work at my own desk today. This was what my kitchen table looked like this morning, before I packed everything into the car.


I went to the local Arts Centre and taught my first ever paper craft class. We made two different card designs and two gift boxes, in different colours, to match them.


My sweet girl made this cute Good Luck card for me, before she went off to school…


…and my lovely friend brought this delicious cake along for us to share.


I got to bring the leftover portion home. All in all a very good day.

To see what everyone else has been up to head over to Julia’s place.

It's so nice to hear your classes are growing! Beautiful cards. I think I might actually have that stamp.
