Michaels class program being discontinued!

Hello everyone,

I have been informed today that the Michaels class program is being discontinued as of April 1, 2008. I am so very sad to hear of this news. I am currently checking into other options for classes. I have posted a Poll that I would like you to take time to answer a few questions to help me with planning and locating a new place for us to continue classes.
I appreciated your support.
If you have any comments to direct to Michaels about the class program you will need to contact the corporate office not the store. The stores did not have any input into the decision making process.

Blessings, Diane

I'm not missing in action!

Hi Everyone,

I know it's been a long time since my last post. WHEW! Have I been busy. I had the opportunity to attend the CHA (Craft and Hobby Association) Convention. It was at the Anaheim convention center for 4 days. I spent two days at the convention center helping promote the products the company I work for sells. I also had a chance to check out what other companies had to promote. I was able to make some great projects that were offered by some of the vendors. The event is like the SuperBowl of crafting. I then spent two days preparing for the classes I would be teachng at the Scrapbook Expo. I am currently working at the Scrapbook Expo. It has been a blast. My class has been a super big hit. My class was teaching cards that Flip, Twist and Pop. I have had some super late nights with cutting for more kits and making some supersized class projects. My supersized samples are so cute, and sure do help with a class of 50 students to have a large visual aide to make their projects. Can you believe it, I will have taught 150 ladies how to make some really fun cards in 3 days. That is a feat of accomplishment for me.
It was so much fun to see my stamping friends come to my booth and check out what were selling. My hubby made a surprise visit to the Scrapbook Expo today just prior to the starting of my class. He surprised me with a beautiful pair of gold hoop earrings. Is't that just the sweetest! Yeah! that scored some points. He even helped me get some last minute stuff ready for my class and stayed around to watch me teach my class. He hadn't ever seen me in action before. His presence didn't even make me nervous. I am looking forward to getting back to normal and preping for my regular weekly class. Have a blessed day.
Blessings, Diane
