Fun Filled Weekend!

The CK Convention was in town this weekend and I got the opportunity to teach at it! I went and took a few classes myself on Friday, one Simple Scrapbooks class, one Scrapworks class and one CK Class. I really liked the SS class, the Scrapworks class was OK, the teacher was great, the CK class was cute but I didn't get what I wanted out of it. The Vendor Faire was great and I spent more than I wanted to but got some terrific stuff so cool! ;) On Saturday I taught "Ribbon Rapture" It went pretty well, most of the feedback was great, of course there were a few unhappy customers. Now granted they got more free stuff in my one class than I got in all three of my classes put together but I guess that didn't matter. The class was a 2 hour class and it should not have been. It was a 2 page layout and a card and there was no way I could stretch that to 2 hours no matter how hard I tried so it ended early. Some people were happy they had time to shop between classes other were not. I am just going to try to focus on the positive feedback! I also entered two contests and didn't win either so big let down's all weekend but I'm already over it! :)
Today we got more rain, in the middle of a make-up game. And it was not a nice rain, there was thunder and lightening and the game got called. So needless to say Jake was not a happy camper! He was supposed to get back on the pitching mound today after his breakdown two weeks ago. And at the rate we are going these kids will be playing make-up games till August! Nevermind what our yard looks like! And the basement is barely holding it's own!
So now, I'm off to recover from the busy weekend by hitting the hay early! Have a great night! See you all tomorrow!

Sorry to hear about the game getting rained out. What a busy weekend you had! I am sure you did a fantastic job in your class Pam. Some people are just impossible to please and it wouldn't matter what you did. Sounds like you got a good stash though. Did you manage to get any kitty papers? Maybe we will get to see some more sox pages :)

I'm sure you did awesome. Some people just aren't happy unless the complain and nit pick things to death. If most of the comments were possitive, then that is what I'd focus on and forget the rest.
I can't wait to see your projects.

I have to agree with Jolene. I bet your class was great. I wish I could have taken it, as I LOVE ribbon! :)
