It was so fun teaching at Crop & Create in Markham earlier this month. It was my first time teaching in Canada and I just loved every bit. The event was put on by Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine, which is celebrating 10 years this month! So grateful to Catherine for having me and shuttling me around so I could be on the Marilyn Denis Show too. I didn't take nearly enough photos, but I did make an entire video, so I hope it feels like you were along for the ride.
I taught two classes on Saturday, did a make and take Saturday night (then crashed so hard out of creative exhaustion)! I taught my last class on Sunday. It was absolutely wonderful meeting so many creative and uplifting women who share a love for memory keeping. Connecting in person is often hard to describe in words and capture in photos, but trust me, if you have the chance to meet other like-minded amazing people in person, I suggest you do it! Everyone was so nice and full of smiles and I had the best time with them.
After I was done teaching on Sunday, I hung out in the crop room and had a 3 week old baby fall asleep in my arms!! It was bliss!
I even got to see some family for just a minute. Well, technically we aren't related but I did grow up with the lady in the glasses as my aunt basically. My mom and her went to school together in India. Growing up I lived in Chicago and remember more than a few 11+ hour drives to Toronto to visit. She also has twin daughters who happen to be in Cabo or somewhere exotic like that, so unfortunately I didn't get to see them but I did get to see their little sister, Jessica, which was super fun!
Also so thankful that the weather was not too cold - just about 17 degrees, but not snowing too much and pretty manageable considering I spent most of my time indoors.
Too much fun!! I'm trying to convince Vicky Boutin she needs her own YouTube channel. For those who have met her in person, I know you'd totally agree with me. She's not only hilarious, but just an amazing human being with incredible energy. Loved being around her and all the awesome people at Crop & Create Markham. Already hoping to teach again at a future event!
There's a giveaway in celebration of 10 years on Scrapbook & Cards Today's blog, so be sure to check that out!
This blog post was fun to put together, and I am really going to try and be better about recaps and keeping you all updated on stuff that's going on. The videos on YouTube have just taken up a lot of time and then I feel like I am being repetitive when I type stuff out. Perhaps I will share the photos of the traveler's notebook once I print my pictures and finish it up. Let me know what you think in the comments below! Enjoy the video!
