Over the last three years, I have taught 118 classes. Some were to adults, some to children, and lots were to my sweet, spunky senior citizens.
I have taught at nursing homes, senior centers, the YMCA, craft stores, and even my dining room table.
I have met hundreds of new friends, and lost several of them to their eternal home.
I have learned a lot of things including: how to take a right hook, how not to panic when someone has a medical emergency, how to be patient, how to improvise, how communicate with someone in non-traditional ways, how to multi-task, and how to take criticism.
I have also learned that it is unbelievably cool to watch someone else learn how to create something. It even more exciting when they thought they couldn't do it.
All in all, I've really enjoyed my classes and look forward to the next 118.
I have been making washer crosses for awhile now, and I love them. I love how they look and how they feel, and what they are made of. So I was really excited when I was asked to make a set of washer cross jewelry for a recent gift certificate winner. She asked for black and white, a color combination that I hadn't previously worked with on my crosses. I wasn't too sure about it at first, but after it was all said and done, I love how they turned out.
I'm excited to experiment with some new color combinations!!
