This past weekend I was teaching at the Mall of America at Scrapfest. It was such a great experience for me. I connected with so many wonderful crafters. I love knowing that by sharing my heart...my story and what inspires me it does make a difference. I am always inspired by those that I met. I am a better person by the comments that I hear. I never plan what I will share in my workshops. I simply share what my heart feels and hope that my message is felt and will touch and inspire in some small way.
This weekend was one of the greatest experiences I have ever had teaching. I was given the blessing of hearing countless stories from those who attended. I will cherish in my heart what I was heard. We are all the same. We all have the same heartaches and we all feel pain, love, joy and scrap booking is so much more than the beautiful creations we create. It's about feelings... it means something!
Here are some photos from the weekend-
Yes, these girls made me laugh, smile, and well feel so loved. I hope they come to ALL my workshops. They were so adorable and I felt so appreciative for their enthusiasm.
I love teaching and I have decided that 45 minute classes are way too short for me.
Xyron sponsored ALL of my workshops and we surprised EVERYONE with their own TC Sticker Maker- pink houndstooth was quite the hit. It was so great to see the surprise and happiness.
So fun to give away a few of the TC pink Mega Runners (thank you Xyron!). Yes, they are sold out but we has set aside enough pink mega runners so that EVERYONE in the crop got one. It was so much fun for everyone to win one!
The crop was in the center of the mall and we had entirely too much fun!!!!!
I have to send out the BIGGEST thank you ever to the Archivers staff. They went above and beyond during the weekend. This is the crazy girls (in a very good way) that helped me during the crop night. I had the best helpers in every single one of my workshops. I was in the GREAT ROOM teaching during the day and I could not have asked for better helpers. It was so crazy to do a mini book in 45 minutes. Hmmm... I think I am a overachiever.
Thank you AMY and SESIL for helping me so much! They are the BEST in so many ways and I love them. PS Amy had a little problem in the hotel room. She just "knew" I had used her toothbrush. Yes, yuck!
I told her that was gross and no way, but she was convinced I had used it. Then she realized I had not after I showed her mine. So then she thought it had been Sesil. Again, it was so funny and of course Sesil would not use anyone else's toothbrush. Amy just KNEW one of us had used her toothbrush because it was "wet" on the sink counter. Poor Sesil was not there to defend herself.
Thankfully, Amy found her toothbrush in her bag and realized that Sesil and I did not go near her toothbrush. It was so funny and we so tired but we laughed until we all cried. Good memories together... it makes it so much fun!
I had just walked into the store when I ran into these darling girls. So nice! Oh, the store was full of beautiful products.
This is the Scrapfest Girls and they were a really group of girls. I love that they wore matching shirts each day. So much fun to see the friendships and connections.
Many of us had a book signing. This was really a fun thing to do.
I like to bring projects for everyone to be able to see in person instead of just "on line" or in the idea book.
Thanks to EVERYONE who truly made this weekend one that I will not forget.
Today is all about Vintage Chic on my craft channel segment. Today on my show I show how to make a simple STORY chipboard album that will help document and share your memories. This project is showcasing how to share your travel memories in a beautiful & meaningful way. Yes, I mixed travel with Vintage Finds... there are NO rules!
I love the large rhinestone gem on the chipboard book cover. (all TCD)
