Class Schedule

I've taken the big leap into the world of teaching. I've taught a few classes in my home. However, some people may not feel comfortable coming to a stranger's house. For that reason, plus the larger classroom size available, I'm now teaching Jewelry Making at the Hobby Lobby in Aiken, SC. I can't believe after all these years that Hobby Lobby has been in business that I didn't realize they even offered classes! I approached the Store Manager one day to inquire if they even offer classes, and she about laughed in my face! Of course they do! They have watercolor classes, oil painting classes, cake decorating classes, scrapbooking classes, wood carving classes, etc. I was flabbergasted. How could I NOT know this?? The only thing I can figure is I've been praying for direction to go with my jewelry, and I felt led to teach. Then she told me they did have classes, but did NOT have any jewelry making classes. That was an answer to prayer! Within a day I scheduled two very basic classes, and a week later I scheduled seven new classes.

Here are the classes currently scheduled:

Congrats on your new path as a teacher! Let us know how it goes :-D
[FYI you may want to reconsider using "captcha" to screen your blog, I don't usually leave comments on blogs that have it, it's just too hard for me to see. Personally, I just use the 'screen comments feature' to eliminate spam, it works great.]

Thanks Tammie! I'm really excited about this next phase of my life and my jewelry career. By the way, I also screen comments prior to publishing as well. I hate the "captcha" thing, I can't ever see the words in there!
