Flexible Options . . . To Make Crafting Work for Your Schedule.

There are lots of things out there in our world today that compete for our time and attention.  All of us are balancing an enormous number of spinning plates of different responsibilities.  We have work, family, friends, household needs, church, community events, volunteering, to name a few.  Where do we possibly find time for card making events??  Where to we find time to relax with friends, exercise the creative parts of our brains, and make something amazing that we can use to show love, kindness, and/or gratitude toward others?

I don't know about you, but I know my schedule seems sometimes overwhelming. Sometimes the business of life keeps me from stopping to take a moment to share kindness with those around me.  Sometimes, I get to the end of the day, week, month, and wonder where the time has gone and if I have made a positive impact in my world or just acted like I'm running around a hamster wheel.  I'm trying to be intentional this year about spreading kindness, expressing thankfulness, and making sure I get off the hamster wheel and slow down.

I would like to be able to help you with those things as well.  My attempt to do that is to offer several different types of classes and class times.  Hopefully at least one of them will work for you and you can find time to join me for class to work your creative brain and find time for creating cards and other paper projects that will help you express kindness and show gratitude.  Who knows?  Maybe you'll find that fitting this into your life will have other positive benefits in your life as well.

Here is the class schedule for Angel Stamps from June-December 2018.  If none of these times work for you, please let me know that and let me know what would work out best for your schedule.  I'll be re=evaluating at the end of the year before I plan for 2019 classes.
