I've signed up for this class too! It starts on Sunday 16th May and looks like it will be a lot of fun.
Mr RLB thinks I'm addicted to my computer, as when we sit down to watch something on TV, I always say "I'm popping upstairs to the office to check my emails" - he wonders what this 'email thing' is, but he just woudn't "get it"!!
And I'm not even going to try and explain what blogging is and how I've made some lovely friends in blogland, his feet are firmly planted in reality on terra firma and computers are not part of his world!
You can just imagine the looks I get when we sit down in the evening and I'm cutting out images with a small pair of scissors - he thinks I've totally lost it and that I've gone back to my childhood!!!
Seriously, I have to admit I really enjoy cutting out images and creating beautiful pages. I find the process very therapeutic.
My idea for the books and journals I make is to give my granddaughters a record of the things I enjoy doing.
As we don't live in the same country it's my way of sharing the things I love with them.
Please check out Mary's website by clicking on the link at the bottom of this post and read about the class, it could be just what you're looking for too.
With the class Mary includes lots of downloads and step by step instructions on building these pages.
I'm completely new to arty things and need as much help as I can get.
I love it all but I'm not naturally creative, so for me it's a learning process.
I can't wait to begin!!
I'm going to be super busy as this is second class I've joined this month, but as I loved the sound of them both and simply couldn't choose between them - I decided I would have to do both!!!
