I have been wanting to alter various items for ages now – paint cans, tins, other boxes – and today I finally got my chance. A friend of mine is a Close To My Heart consultant and she had a flip flop and altered paint can class today. The flip flop project was fun and easy (tying ribbon) and the paint can was just as easy (securing paper to the can). She is having various other classes throughout the next few months and I’ve signed up for at least two. I’m really not a scrapbooker – I believe pictures should be in order in an album, and cutting pictures? Ack! – but I can get into smaller projects like small books or altered items. She is even having a class on making a little paper box and a set of cards.
And I have to say I was very impressed that she didn’t badmouth any other companies – I admit I didn’t tell her I am a Stampin’ Up rep, but when others attending said something about SU she said good things about the products. I am glad – I know I would not have been comfortable continuing to take classes from her otherwise. I’ve been to a handful of other parties where the consultant had nothing but bad things to say about a rival company. It never looks good to behave that way.
I’m sure I’ve said it before but pictures are coming soon! I am determined to figure out the software by the weekend.
PS I’m on a weight loss/get healthier journey – join me at Losing My Baby Weight (new design coming soon!).
