registration is open!

I am so excited.. I just got an email from stacy julian telling me that my class is UP and ready for registration on Big Picture Scrapbooking!  I am just sitting here, working on part of the “welcome package” that students will receive the end of January… I am creating a bunch of cool exclusive product for this class… I saw a bit of it today even… prototypes. It’s a thrill… I have been working on the monthly pages, challenges and ideas, and it just makes me happy. Gives me so much to think about. If you go to bigpicturescrapbooking.com, you can read the rather-long class description and you can also download an 11minute thing that I recorded to try to explain what the ‘year to remember class’ will be about. I am excited that it’s up finally…we have been working very hard to get all the ‘logistics’ worked out. students will receive 4 different packages throughout the year, with different products and surprises… originally we weren’t going to limit the number of participants that we were allowing… but since we are providing ‘kits’ and we will be sending stuff out, we had to pick a number- so there is a cap.

Other than that… lots going on around here… parent teacher conferences this week… it was fun to talk to the teachers about the kids. My kids LOVE school…and I am SO glad!
My running shoes are awesome and making a BIG difference in my training! I am running in the mornings, and doing a short afternoon/evening walk with the kids riding their bikes, and giving Capri stroller rides. The temps in AZ this time of year are devine.
It’s Colton’s 9th b-day this weekend, and to celebrate we are taking a bunch of kids to the drive-in to see ‘open season’…it’s the 2nd annual drive-in birthday party! So much fun. I love going to the drive-in. I totally remember doing that when I was little. We would get dressed in our pajamas and take sleeping bags and pillows, and my dad let us watch the movie on the roof of the station wagon.  You pay by the car-load and you can bring in outside food. It’s perfect. colton is excited. Capri is totally ‘cooing’. It’s the sweetest thing to listen to, to have little conversations with her.  She is growing too fast. And I am NOT taking enough photos. You’d think I would be better at that.  Ok, it’s 11:15 and I have to get up EARLY if I want to get a run in. I had a short this morning, so tomorrow I am bumping up my mileage just a bit.  I am trying to remind myself that muscle weighs more than fat as I am not seeing any results on the scales. (not feeling results in the clothing department either)… this month has flown by. I need to go pick out a Halloween costume tomorrow. I want to be something SCARY!  Also, tomorrow- we have our first official ‘creative escape 2007’ meeting with the ‘executive committee’ over at Bazzill. (already!?) already we have so many ways that we are going to improve for next year, starting to detail the class categories and starting to get the teacher line up in place. –all top secret for now!
Ok- seriously, good night.

    I read the class description and it looks like just what I need. Now to find the funds to pay for it. As a single parent I have learned to be quite creative in that department. Hmmmmmm……. Save me a spot!

    I just signed up for the class over at BPS! I’m really excited… especially because this isn’t only a scrapbooking class but also a life class! It’s going to help me continue one of my goals of living with intention. I love classes that make me THINK! I’m so looking forward to this!!

    Sounds like you have so many exciting things going on right now. Can’t wait to hear about details for 2007 CE. . .hoping maybe I can go next year.
    Hoping the drive-in party goes well this weekend. We had our 2nd annual birthday carnival for our youngest a couple weekends ago. It’s great when you stumble on an idea that works great and everyone loves enough to want to do it a second time.

    I DEFY anyone to listen to your audio message on the BPS website and NOT sign up for your class! I have been looking forward to this since hearing about it at C.E. and have been watching daily (hourly?) to see when it would be available for registration. I can’t wait! I just had a really big birthday and have decided that I will make the rest of my life a life I LOVE. So glad you’re going to help me learn how to do that!

    Hi, the class sounds so inspiring and fun. I was wondering if there might be some scholorships available for other women and myself, who would really like to take the class but can’t afford it.

    I am just getting back to running too…how far are you up to? I would love to be thinking of someone else in my {shoes} in the morning working for weight loss, mental health and just plain feeling good… 5 am runs for me… good luck and keep up the running! I love it and wish I had never stopped! that is how it goes though with family…things in spurts. 🙂

    heidi I listened to your audio this morning after I signed up for your class and it took my breath away…I just sat there listening and was able to relate to you sitting on your bed listening to the sound of your families laughter and think…this class is going to be amazing..the journey you are going to take us on. Listening to you pour your heart out on your audio regarding taking the time to enjoy life and your family just makes me want to a better mother. So heidi thank you for inspiring me!!

    hey heidi your class sounds wonderful! i’m really thinking of taking it! you are an awesome inspiration! and i just had to put in a quick note about your running and the weather here in az. you said, “The temps in AZ this time of year are devine.” as soon as i read that i was laughing! it’s so true, but what i was laughing about is the spelling of devine. it made me think of a certain LSS! several of us have gotten a kick out of that (insert smiley)

    If you really want to be something scary, how about non-acid-free paper, or rubber cement? (of course, you could only go to sb’ers houses, otherwise people will look at you kind of funny….)

    I am so dissapointed as I’ve been anxiously awaiting your class. It is just too expensive for an online class. I understand that we will receive product in the mail, but still just too steep for me. If you offered it on a quarterly basis, I would be able to take it. I’m sure there are others who feel the same way. Hope you will consider this option.

    i just signed up and i am really excited. i remember while i was in hs and college, i use to mark up a calendar. i would wirte in each box with all the stuff i thought was important to remember. looking back and reading some of those, they weren’t that important. i read them with my son and he just laughs. so this class will bring back some memories as well as new creativity. can’t wait. happy brithday to colton. a drive in party. should be lots of fun.
