Just started a new class
over at (you guessed it) Big Picture Scrapbooking! This one is called Me: The Abridged Version, and is taught by Cathy Zielske. At first, I wasn't that hyped about the class. I was stumped on where to start MY story and while I wanted to borrow the book the class is based off of from the library, unfortunately our library system here didn't carry it (and I just don't have the funds to run out and buy every book that sounds great)!
Anyhow, the classroom opened today, and after tackling my grocery list (with the hopes of doing shopping later), I sat down to watch Cathy's opening video. WOW! As if I should have expected anything different, I was amazed. As always, the message boards are hopping, and everyone is sharing fabulous ideas, and all of a sudden, my planned grocery trip was side-tracked until tomorrow (oops, sorry honey). I'm having a ball in class and I think everyone else is too - trying to come up with meaning for each of the letters of the alphabet for our own "encyclopedia" of me and working on the stories to go with them.
One student in class put this in the Help board (a place where we go to find letters that we need help filling): W - Work, need to M - Mortgage doesn't get paid by R - Reading Message boards and O - obsessively posting. Only thing needed to add was See also: BPS, addictions.
If you're not there already, and you love to scrapbook, yet find you're always leaving your story out, this class is for you . . . and okay, even if you already do all that, you need to take this class because Cathy teaches it and she's a fabulous teacher and it's in a fun and happy environment!
