Countdown to Class!
I bought little metallic gift bags at the dollar store, .50 each, that will hold each person's yarn, two sets of directions for two different types of ruffly scarves, and NOTE: CHOCOLATE CANDY for the table...(Just about every teacher's workshop I ever attended always had a little candy dish with assorted chocolate for snacking) and here's why: 1.) This will stave off the possible underlying comments which all students say sooner or later--"I can't believe I paid XX.XX dollars for this class," 2) If they get bored, they can eat, 3) the gift bag is reusable, I didn't even write their name on the gift tag, 4) I attached a little knitted key fob/key ringy thingy as a little gift for signing up for the class. (I'm not sure she's going to make any money on this deal! says E.) Yes, I will, a little....But I feel better having done the little extras to make everybody happy, which I know, I know, that's an unrealistic expectation...But hey, it made me feel good to get these ready for everyone! I'm in my element when I'm making craft stuff! (THAT'S the understatement for the year! exclaims E.) I think they're going to enjoy the class....I'm up to ten people now, who have signed up for the class, and they are all coming...And some don't know how to knit...This could get interesting!
My apologies for having a "girly" blog today....That's for G. M. who said I should do a more manly blog sometimes...not sure what THAT looks like, but Eldy's working on coming up with some topics...Aren't you, honey? (AHEM! Cough! Cough! Uh.....working on it, R-I-I-I-G-H-T!) Eldy says, stay tuned next Friday to find out about the Cummins RV chat. There! A manly topic! But ya gotta wait a week! Bye for now......
