Photography Class

I have decided I am going to learn to use the camera we bought when my daughter was born. She is almost 6. The only button I know how to use is the auto focus. I found an online class here. I think I am nuts on some level to take on one more thing at the moment. I mean isn't a new job with lots of training and paperwork enough? Apparently not.

What I liked about this website is that not only are there daily emails, and assignments; but I can access my account online any time I want-even after the class is over. Also, it has little videos to watch (I am a visual and hands on learner so this is great). And another thing I like, there are audio files to go with the class and you can listen to them on an ipod. I am an audio book junkie so this is another cool little feature.

I may not get to craft much now that school has started but with any luck, occasionally I will get to post crafts or photos.

No Crafting Time-How Sad

School has started off with a bang! We have been back two weeks and I still don't have a list of kids that I am suppose to work with yet. New school year, new building, new job it is all so fun. NOT!! Can you hear the sarcasm oozing out :)

I am excited, it's just exhausting at this point. My daughter (who just started Kindergarten this year) and I have had several naps after school. At this point I am not sure which of us is more tired.

I haven't had any time to stamp, however, I am trying to be positive, so I am glad that I have been able to play with and cut card stock this past week. The only down part is it has been to make hundreds of flash cards.

I do plan on visiting my BFF this weekend and we are going to stamping club this weekend. I should have some neat things to share. Our demo, Cindi, has said we will be using stuff out of the new mini catalog! I can't wait!! It should be fun playing with new toys and getting away from the job. Until next time....

Rag Bags x Two

Here are two purse I made the same and they are reversible. One is a gift for my son's girlfriend. I really hope she likes it. He told me that her favorite colors are purple and green. I hope he is right he is red and green color blind. I happen to love jewel tones and black and white. Once again the Big Shot comes thru cutting all the pieces quickly and easily.

Just a side note, I have a watermark with my cute little cat! I know it takes so little to amuse me.
