It all started at the McKinney Trade Days last Saturday. I mentioned to Robbie that it would be fun to find an old hymnal that I could pull pages out of and use on scrapbook pages about my faith. Right away, he found one for a mere 50 cents! At another booth, I noticed a cute chipboard Stampin' Up mini-album and was able to pick it up for only $3.
And then, since I'd already blown it, I figured it wouldn't hurt to stop at Scrappin' Bunnies, our local scrapbooking store, on the way home. I limited myself to one $20 bill and was able to pick up several new supplies.
And next came the new online classes I signed up for yesterday at Big Picture Classes. First, Karen Grunberg's Finding Your Way Workshop which starts today. I really enjoyed Karen's free class and am intrigued to see where this 8-week workshop takes me. It is designed to help us find our own unique scrapbooking style. And while I was already in the process of purchasing a new class, I figured I might as well go ahead and sign up for Stacy Julian's two-week workshop called i.scrap. This workshop is an introspective look back at 2010. Since last was a year of change and healing and new found scrapbooking mojo, I am really looking forward to creating the 8x8 album in this workshop that starts next week. (On a positive note, I did find a coupon code that saved $5 off my purchase and I now have a $10 reward credit that I can use toward a future class.)
There's still time to sign up for these two workshops. If you're not already a member of BPC, please click this link to create an account: http://www.bigpictureclasses.com/register.php?refer=DC8AF110. This link takes you to the page to create an account and also tells BPC that I recommended them to you. Once you purchase a class, you and I both will receive a 10% coupon off a future purchase! If you're not ready to purchase a class, I highly recommend that you create an account and sign up for one of the free self-paced classes and give them a try. My favorite free class is Start Here With Stacy.
Well, that's it for me - anyone else need to confess that they've missed the mark on one of their goals for this year?
