My class was a success :)

I taught my class tonight. I had a blast.
The women were so nice and really loved the project we made. One of the women said "Are we really going to make that?" She was impressed I guess, teehee. I thought that was so sweet. They thanked me more than once. I think I can get used to this praise, LOL.
But can you believe I Didn't Take One Picture. I brought my camera, I had every intention of taking a picture with all the ladies and their finished treat bags. It wasn't until I came home that I realized I forgot. I am so ticked at myself!

But I will show you what I did make.
I volunteered to make some cards for Card Cupids, you can check them out here. It is an organization that collects cards for children who are in the hospital that need a little bit of brightness in their day.
Here is my card for Ashlie. Its a waterfall card.
Here is a card for Riley. It is a spinner card.And this one is for Christina. Another waterfall card. I hope these put a smile on their face.I forgot to toast our pumpkin seeds. Ashley tediously cleaned the seeds and separated the guts from them. So I figured I better toast these suckers before they go bad. When I first looked at them I saw a few white strings on them and thought, well I guess she didn't clean them as well as I thought.
Then I grabbed a handful and look what I found.Oh you need a better look?
Yup that's right, they started to sprout. LOL.
Humm I wonder if I plant them inside if they would grow. It was -6C (20F) here today and its just going to get colder, so I don't think that they would grow to well in this weather. We did get some toasted though. I wanted just sea salt on them, but Ashley came home for lunch and wanted seasoning salt and then put a whole whack of spices on them. Actually they were pretty good, a bit spicy for my taste though.
She called them veggie steaks, because she said that she put the same seasoning that hubby marinates his steaks in.

So that is about it for my day.

Planning on getting some stuff in the mail tomorrow, that should have been mailed out months ago, sorry Marlene. And cleaning up my scrap/craft room for its close up ;)
Hope you all had a creative Friday.

  7. I'm baaaack! LOL I'm so happy to hear your class went great. Yes, I've been busy again but things are finally getting under control. I have a friend that just through the guts and seeds out on her front lawn after carving and she had herself a little pumpkin patch come the next fall. She got about 6 or 7 good size pumpkins out of it.

  8. Cute cards! Love the pumpkin sprouts, you'll have lots of pumkins next year :)

  10. I bet your class was great! The kits are awesome.

    I totally get it about forgetting to get the camera out. You get so busy circulating, you forget to take pics. When I teach kids, I hand over the point and shoot get amazing pictures that way.
