Class Project for COTC {Burlap & Frame Earring Holder}

Good evening all, I am here tonite to share with y'all some  scrappy good news! In my scrappy life this week, I was able to get the mojo' goin and put together 24+ embellishment kits and finish a mock-up frame for the class project that Leanne and I are teaching at Croppin' on the Coast starting May 4th,5th, and 6th. I am so excited about it all! The only thing left to do is get more frames and just make sure we have enough supplies, better to have more than enough in case! I am hoping we are able to teach the class 2 times, with 12 participants in each class! If we don't sell it out we can always teach it again next year or possibly pursue teaching it at another convention. This was really my first time putting into focus what I think I would like to do with this little 'business' of mine and I think a large part of it will be original embellishments. The other exciting news is that Leanne and I have been asked to be the 'Swap Coordinators' for COTC which is super fun! I can't wait for this little mini-vacay/  fun scrappy girls weekend to get here! May 3rd hurry up!!! The other news is that I was able to complete another project for the Scrappin' Frenzy Design team call and get everything turned in right on time... I did I mini album about the day that Jimmy proposed to me while we were on vacation in Portland! I was in such a hurry though that I didn't take any pictures of it, but it turned out super super cute!!!! I can't wait to share it on here when I get it back. They are supposed to make announcements about the new 2012 by May 1st so I will know something before vacay begins. Okay, well I will go ahead and share with you a few pictures of the mock up frame and some others of the kits!!! So excited it feels like it's all coming together:)

In the meantime, I've got a long 9 day stretch ahead of me in my retail life, including a bridal show Sunday! At least they're not all closing shifts. Gotta get back into a more normal sleeping pattern though, been staying up till 2am the past 2 nights just cause I'm so pumped about all this stuff! LOL okay seriously, it's bedtime. Until next time, peace y'all~ VV
