Studio Audience Members Wanted (and a cool giveaway!)

Feeling a bit like Ellen today. Okay, perhaps that's a bit extreme, but I am seeking live studio audience members. Isn't that fun? And I will be giving away free and awesome things to my audience. Sounds kind of Ellen-esc, don't ya think? 

What's up? Well, I've made brief mention of this before, but I want to elaborate now in the hopes you'll join me, either live as an audience member or online via video streaming...

I'm teaching with CreativeLIVE!

Woot! And I owe a great BIG word of thanks to Becky Higgens for suggesting me. What a compliment from a very talented teacher and crafter! (Thank you, Becky!) 

I couldn't be more excited about this opportunity. Or nervous, if I'm being perfectly honest. I LOVE teaching, but this is a game changer. This is a big deal, and I really, really want it to go amazingly well. I'd be forever indebted to you if you could help me make that happen, either by joining me from your computers or actually attending the class. I assure you we'll have a ball!


Who: You & me, of course! And some special guest appearances by some of my friends in the scrapbooking industry. (More on that fun in a future post!)

We're going to take our awesome social media moments and turn them into memorable memory-keeping projects we can enjoy long after the internets is dead and gone. Okay, so perhaps the WWW isn't going anywhere anytime soon, but I do want to help you get your amazing stories off your computers/phones and into a more tangible place. And we'll learn many new tricks and tips along the way. Whether you're an avid Instagrammer, a FB fanatic, a Pinterest playa, or you simply dabble in one or all of these sites, you'll find tidbits to apply to your memory keeping. Even if you've never crossed the social-media threshold, you'll get something out of this class and just may find the courage/interest to make that leap (Mom, I'm talking to you here!). ;) 

Where: Your house AND/OR San Francisco, CA. 
If you want to join me as an audience member, then you'll be headed to Trolly Town. (More info on that below.) Otherwise, you can be in the comfort of your own home, or office, or glamper... wherever you have an internet connection and a computer! And join me for two days of projects, ideas, advice, new product reviews, and experts. (Yes, I'll have several special guests joining me!)

When: July 23 & July 24; 9:00 am—4:00 pm (pacific time)

Why: Because crafting is fun! 
Because there are so many amazing parts of our lives being lost to the internet that need rescuing. Because there are new tricks and tips for simplifying your crafting, new gadgets to explore, and new paper to play with. Because I LOVE creating and always have more fun when you join me!
