Remember that EXCITING NEWS THAT I COULDN'T SHARE? lol Well I can finally reveal it. :) Of course..for those of you not in the Flathead Valley you'll probably be thinking...okay so what's the big deal?? ;) But we are super excited. Ben Franklin has offered to sponsor Kara and I...we will be able to use the empty room in the mall in Whitefish for our classes/crops every month!! We are stoked...and have so many ideas to get people excited...and have FUN and just have a nice, comfortable place to go to scrap. And..technology is great...within just a couple hours I was able to create a website..complete with paypal buttons. :) And if anyone wants a class kit that isn't in the area..you can still get one...it'll come complete with instructions and samples and shipping is free. :) (just using my instructor fee to pay your shipping...the products will all be retail value for you!!). Just have to take some sample photos and get those up but otherwise..it's done. I'm SO stoked!! You can check it out HERE.
And other good news...Shawn worked today!! And he'll work tomorrow and Thursday. WOOHOOO!! Not sure about Friday yet though. LOL
