There are two free classes going on right now. I've been reading the posts and downloading the pdfs, but haven't had time to participate yet. Both are very worthwhile, so if you're not aware of them it's worth checking them out. The first is at Big Picture Scrapbooking and is called the Festival of Ideas. Each day a new lesson is posted by one of their instructors and there have been a couple of great projects. You can still register and all the lessons are archived.
The second is a free class on journaling at Elle's Studio. Like Festival of Ideas, each day brings a new instructor with ideas and beautiful samples of their work. Ali Edwards, Lisa Dickenson, and Christine Middlecamp are just three of the people who have posted lessons so far. This is a three week course and there's a link on the sidebar so you can access just the posts for the course.
Once I get into my new space, I hope to get some work done based on both these classes and the weekend crop at Shimelle's which I totally missed.
I do have a few cards to share that I created before all the craziness began. One of my dear friends is having surgery on Monday, and I was glad that I had this card on hand.
This card will soon be off to a friend who is undergoing chemo. I'm trying to get a card off to her every few days. She's doing remarkably well, and her spirits and sense of humor have not been diminished by this ordeal.
