I am in the fabby hospitality of the Texans...I have been cowboy hunting but not managed to snag one just yet, will need to practise my lassoing a little bit more methinks.!!
Anyhow back to 10 days ago.
Second day of Ranger U saw the lovely Claudine teaching what she does best, Mixed Media techniques. Fabby, no need for a microphone for her. She is absolutely petite and doll like with the most amazing voice, I don't know where it comes from lol.
Sunday it was my turn, and believe it or not, I gor really really nervous. How funny. But look what my Mum and Dad sent me from Heaven to keep me on track...
Yup a heart in my Dylusions spray ink.!!!
The lovely Suze popped in to see what was happening.
And before we knew it, it was all over. Here's the happy students after receiving their certification.
I am house sharing with Tim and Mario, and we are spending all day working together , so things had the capacity to get a little fraught. but no way, we were one happy little bunch, just laughing and joking all the way. I had so much fun as they introduced me to lots of new things. My favourite was when they taught me how to eat crab. Coming from England I was expecting it to be dressed ready to eat. Err obviously I was wrong...
Mind you I soon got the hang of it and didn't take any ones eye out.
This is where we were and I highly recommend it.
When you are working the long hours we do food is extremely important, both for energy and as a way to wind down. One of our favourite places to eat was at the local Chinese. All these meals were $5 each. We never once finished them, lol.
And then it was on to teaching at a Jersey store, Scrappers Cove. Here are the lovely owners, Sue, Pat and Chris.
I taught two classes, the accordion inky book and the Artful Journal. They were a lovely bunch of customers and their work was fabby. The lovely Michael had taken time out from his packing to come to my workshops. Very impressive as he was emigrating to Brazil the next morning to start a new life with his partner. Best of luck to you babe. xx
I will talk about more teaching and the second Ranger U in my blog tomorrow.
I am just getting my things together to go prep the classroom for tomorrows classes at The Crafty Scrappy. If you are near please try come and join us, I will do my best to squeeze you in, as I don't want you to miss out, lol.
