A few of you probably have no idea what Creating Keepsakes University (CKU) is. I'm mostly writing this for the benefit of my local stamping/scrapbooking friends who lurk here. But it's a major scrapbooking event where students take a bunch of classes during a long weekend with leading scrapbook artists/teachers.
I volunteered as a Teacher's Assistant for a couple of days and it was a lot of fun. I was lucky to work with great teachers. But as a paper artist, the main thing I wanted to know was if I decided to go as a student, was it worth the registration fee? It's 3 1/2 days, intensive classes. I'd almost definitely (that's a good one, huh?) say YES!! The classes that I TA'd for were so cool. The only reason I say "almost" is because I'm susceptible to sensory overload and when I max out, I meltdown (ask Phin). The classes are fast paced and start at 8:30am and can go till midnight. But I think that since I'll know that going in, I'd be able to handle the sensory overload better. The more I talk about it, the more I wanna go...so...Doris...keep that in mind! heehee!
Me and Debby Schuh. She's an AWESOME designer and I love, love, love her Encyclopedia of Alterations class. I'd definitely sign up for that when/if I go as a student. She is sooo kind and organized.
Me and Anita Oldham. Wow, Anita has energy!! She is so much fun! Her class was very in.ten.sive!! It was awesome. So much stuff going on. I was exhausted after TA'ing for her Friday morning class but it was really cool.
