This week has been a very busy one. We have been at the Christian Venues Association National Conference at CYC Phillip Island Adventure Resort. It has been a phenomenal week of sharing, being well fed, catching up with friends near and far and meeting new friends in the Christian Camping industry, which my husband and I have a heart for.
I had the opportunity to run two workshops which gave some attendees a chance to craft with me. In one of my classes I had kids and adults. So I needed to create a class for both which can be difficult. I decided to go for some colouring for the kids and some stamping for the adults.
My husband and I support this ministry in various ways as Ministry of Tech. We like to have some fun at the National Conference. And we like to find fun ways to get everyone to interact and this year was no exception. We organised a giant game of scrabble for all the delegates. Many people didn’t play, but those that did were very competitive. At the end of the allotted time there were 100 plays and over 100 words.
Our eldest flew down by herself on the Monday after we arrived. So we just had our youngest with us and we had a bit of fun when we were setting up the AV gear.
Next weeks classes are a One Sheet Wonder using the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper. I created these cards at the come and play day at my team leaders home. This photo does not do the cards justice. The class cost is $25 for 12 cards, however, you can purchase a pack of the Tropical Oasis designer paper for just $15 in addition to the class fee. You can then make some more cards at home. This is a saving of $10.95 (including shipping). You can see more details about my class at this link.
A couple of weeks ago I saw a video on youtube on how to make a junk journal. I hadn’t heard of them before so I watched a couple of videos. Then I saw a video that used an old Readers Digest book cover to create a junk journal. My Dad had dozens of them when I was growing up and wondered if he still had them. So I called him and asked and he did, however they weren’t the books I had originally thought of, they were older than I remember. In fact the have so much more character than I had remembered.
I created this Journal using old pages from notebooks, some DSP and the book cover from the Readers Digest. I threaded some bakers twine through the sheets of paper to create a book and then added memorabilia to it. These photos of the finished project with out additional items and photos in it.
I am holding a class this week on how to make them. My classes are Friday 28th at 10am and Saturday 29th 10am. If you’d like to join me you can see more details on my facebook page or click on this link.
