Craft Class

I have joined a local Craft Class, well its mostly card making, but the techniques will transfer to scrapbooking so I'm enjoying it.  Its actually the second Class I joined, but the first one (where I did some English Paper Piecing Patchwork) didn't have enough students and was closed.  I transferred to the second Class, and enjoyed it much more, the other students (mostly retirees) were welcoming and chatty and willing to help me out with various techniques.

We made an opening box, which the teacher said could be added to the front of a greetings card.  However, when I got home and showed Mr Messy he asked if I could make more "stand alone boxes" in his "Corporate Colours" to use as packaging for Gift Vouchers, which are a good seller on the run up to Christmas.  I have been thinking over the design and think I know what to do to make it work as a stand alone box, I just need to get on with making some now :-)

When Princess Lollipop arrived home from school to find I wasn't there she asked where I was, when told "Craft Class/School" she marched off upstairs to look in my Craft Room and came stomping back down declaring "Mummy is NOT in her Craft Room!!"  She was slightly mollified after further explanations of where I was, but five minutes later said sadly "Mummy's not her.  She's probably dead!"  That could explain the rapturous greeting I got when I finally did arrive home, and obviously wasn't dead!!
