Hello from Atlanta! I thought I was headed south -- but it is CHILLY here. Actually, winter is my favorite season...love crisp cool air -- somehow clears my head and energizes me...but I came here a bit unprepared...am sporting a sweatshirt hoody (that I randomly threw in my suitcase) everywhere I go!
Guess I was thinking winter this week when I created this layout...when I looked at the yummy October Afternoon papers -- I thought they would work with some wintery pictures I have been want to to scrap...and this was the result. The frame is just some left over chipboard that I sewed one of the pieces of paper to -- and then cut a free form frame out and popped it up with some pieces of cardboard to give it some depth. I may have to do this again...I like how it turned out.
Well...What You Make It starts airing on Monday...I can barely believe it...and am totally excited (and a little nervous). Am so accustomed to teaching live classes where the ladies taking the classes give you feedback and ask questions -- and when I was taping the show it was just me and the cameras...a bit of a different feeling. But you know what -- my speech teacher used to tell us that when we were nervous to just imagine our audience in their underwear and you just couldn't stay nervous. While imagining the cameras in their underwear was just not the same...I DID imagine some of my students sitting out there and pretended I was just teaching a regular class...(although they were all fully clothed) -- and it worked! I know I will get more accustomed to it the more we tape...so I hope everyone will be patient -- and I will love the feedback. I am a student at heart -- and will listen to input carefully. I want What You Make It to be fun -- a place to try new things...and get a bit of inspiration for your own projects. So talk back to me...tell me what you want to see -- what you want to try...techniques that intrigue you. This show is for you...
Thanks for all my friends that have been cheering me on -- I couldn't do this without you...and I appreciate you very much. And I look forward to getting to know those of you in my viewing audience better. I am going to begin teaching at Scrapbook Village on a regular basis -- so it will give us some one on one time together. I will post my schedule here as soon as I am certain of it.
Have a great weekend...and see you next week!
