Okay, I have to cry "Uncle"....I am going to move the Flora and Fauna project to after the Valentines project in Feb. I have been working hard to get the kits for the Heritage Albums ready to ship (I have a friend helping me) while working on the projects for Tim Holtz for CHA and it has been going well.
The Flora and Fauna class was scheduled for this next weekend. The kits are nearly ready and I had planned to put them up on Etsy over the weekend. However, I can't carve out the time to get the Flora and Fauna pattern written in time for a class on Friday....at least not up to my quality standards...so I would rather move the class. The mini has a variety of page and tag styles, thus the pattern is a bit more involved than some of the others. The kits will still go up today or tomorrow but the class will slide a couple of weeks. This way everyone gets their kit before class and I can breathe! So, I will move the fabric mini class to this weekend and do a quick "Jewelry from Scraps" class on the Friday before CHA. .
Moving the schedule around helps me out a ton! I was starting to stress big time! This way I can spend some time with the kids before I leave and I can get the samples done and the kits for the Heritage, Flora and Fauna, and the Valentine's project, "Romantique Box for your Love Notes", done and all the kits shipped out before I leave for CHA
In the future, each month, I am planning to have 2 project classes with kits, 1 technique class (which may or may not have a pattern) and the Page of the Month class. I can't wait to see all the new goodies at CHA and plan future projects!!
I am overnighting the projects I have been working on to Tim on Thursday morning this week. I am dying to show them to you all! I believe they are truly some of my best work. I will post photo's on the morning of the 29th (there is WIFI at the Convention Center!!)
I know you will all understand my need to flex my schedule. I think this is the best solution for everyone. I only like to put my kits and patterns out there for you when they meet my standards. This way everyone can get their kit in time and I can give you all a quality product and a quality class.
Have an awesome week!!
