I’ve taken a couple of online scrapbooking classes at www.bigpicture.com before. They are a lot of fun. An instructor gives you instructions to create something, there is an online gallery to share your creations and a message board to chat with other people taking the class. I signed up for a class called Lift Me Up a few weeks ago. Last week was the first week of class and I’m already behind. The first project was to create a memory capsule in an old jar. I had just the jar – I thought! I’d been saving an old blue tinted glass jar in the garage for just the perfect something. But, when I went to get it, I found it had fallen off the back of the shelf and is broken. 🙁 So, I need to find a different jar and finish my first project.
Big Picture Classes also has a class just for kids for the summer called Kidding Around. Lael and I checked it out a few weeks ago after a friend of mine signed her daughter up. Lael immediately said she would love to do it. Then I happened upon a giveaway for the class on one of my favorite crafting blogs, The Crafting Chicks. Well, I found out a few days ago that I was the lucky winner! I won two (2!) classes AND two (2!) of the smash journals that go along with the class. So, now Lael can do it and maybe just maybe I can twist Caeden’s arm enough to get him to do it too! Basically, it is a class to help kids document the fun they have during the summer. I can’t wait for the class to get started!
