Wait, there's more … here is a handful of pics that attempt to capture some of our experiences thus far. We are having the BEST kind of adventure.
Here's the group of teachers that were all a part of CKU-J 2009
Shane and Sarah Cullimore (Making Memories) + Brittney Beattie (Creating Keepsakes magazine) + me + Margie Romney-Aslett (The Girls Loft) + Tim Holtz + Lance Anderson (Rusty Pickle)
Here is one table of delightful students that were so eager to learn and so willing to follow instructions. I did a little math and figured out that collectively (in my Finish Line class) there were over 10,000 photos scrapbooked — WOW!
CKU ended on Tuesday night, but Tim taught again yesterday at a local craft store. Margie and Catherine and I were invited to join in with a few extra kits. It was so FUN — I rarely get to take classes and certainly not from Tim. Then, last night after attending Tim's class, we all headed to a "local" sushi bar. And guess what? I did it. I ate sushi. It took me a while to get up the courage, but in the end it was DELICIOUS. Truly.
This is Reiko (Tim's translator) and Megumi who helped organize the event. They are so very gracious and kind and absolutely beautiful (inside and out.)
Sayonara for now.
