Well, for those waiting to hear how my first class went. It didn't. It got cancelled. Actually, I found it had been cancelled on Thursday when I called to see how many people had signed up and the lady told me no one did. Free Smiley Courtesy of www.millan.net Maybe I was hoping 10 people would walk into the store on Friday and all sign up. In any case, it was good thing the class was scheduled, but it was also bad.

Good because it's my son's 4th birthday on Thursday (Happy Birthday kiddo!), and since hubby has been out of town on business all week, we were able to celebrate today.

It's been bad because even though I didn't think I cared that much about it... subconsciously it seems to have killed my creativity mojo. I'll get it back, eventually, but for right now I don't have any finished projects to share. Sorry.

So anyway.... Hugs! and thank you for all your kind words and support. You guys are the greatest! And we'll have to wait and see if any one signs up for any of my other classes.

Hope you're having a great weekend.
Ok. Time for me to send out some files to those of you that have requested them. Toodles...


  1. Hello, I just found your blog and noticed that you had a class scheduled but no body signed up....... bummer. I am sorry, however, I was wondering where you live because I have been looking for a class and if you live close I would want a class and maybe can get more. I know it is a long shot but worth it. Thank you, Leslie rldesantiago@aol.com

  2. Oh that's rough, hang in there! You are a very talented person, and I'm sure the class would have been wonderful. But enjoy your birthday celebration with your son! (((hug)))

  3. Jen that's such a shame but it's their loss!!!
    You have to much talent to share I'm sure once word gets around you'll have a full class.
    Did the store promote your class well enough??

  4. Jen,
    Sorry your class was cancelled. I'm sure you were looking forward to it. I would sign up in a flash if I didn't have to catch a plane to get there !!
    Have confidence that you will think of something to catch their attention and sign up.
    Wishing you loads of luck ...


  5. First, Happy Birthday to your son! Second, I'm so sorry no one signed up for your class. If I were near I'd definiteoy sign up. However, I believe things will get better! I'll pray for you that they do!


  6. Jen,
    I would have been there early and be in the front row. So sorry the class got canceled. I want to wish your son a fantastic Happy Birthday. He so cute!

    So glad your vacation was a great one.

  7. Oh, Jen - sorry to hear about your class, it is a bummer - but maybe it was just someone else having other plans for ya :) - hope your son's celebration was lots of FUN and the source of great pics! :)

  8. What?!!! I can't believe it...you know I would have been there, front row for sure. This Joann's store must be in some remote area where the only cricut known is an insect. Jen, I think you should mention which Joann's you're teaching at, you know for sure if any of your readers knew they lived close by they would be there!

  9. Jen,
    I'm so sorry your class got canceled, if I lived near you I would of definitely signed up for your class.

  10. I am sorry no one signed up. They may not know what they were missing out on. Don't get discouraged. Hopefully before long they will be signing up and realize just how much fun it is.


  11. That's so cra**y. What's wrong with those people? Please don't take it personally, you know you have quite a cult following! If you ever decide to hold "0nline" classes, sign me up! I'm glad you got to celebrate your kiddo's birthday, though.

  12. Jen if I lived closer I would be there in a heart beat. Happy Birthday to your son. Enjoy your weekend.


  13. Hi Jen

    First congratulations on your sons 4th birthday. It's a lovely age, My nephew will be turing 4 in june, they are so cute those little ones.

    My DD's had their birthdays too, 4 weeks ago the oldest turned 18 and last wednesday the youngest one turned 15. Wow time sure flies.

    OO what a bummer no one signed up, I would have, if I lived near to where you live.
    oeps time to watch tv now, the girls are comming down, we will be watching Wipe out.
    Have a nice evening.

    Hug Linda

  14. Sorry to hear about your class cancellation - I feel for you. I was to teach Scrapbooking 101 at my local JoAnns store last Sat too and since it was Easter weekend - no one signed up and it was cancelled - I never got a phone call and drove all the way over there on Sat morning just ot find out it was cancelled - well I got to kool layouts out of it. I had to figure them out myself - someone walked away with the samples I needed.

    Not to sorry - try again. They are hammering for your type of class in Ohio - come here -come here! I only have a smiggen of your knowledge - so I could not teach that class at all.

    Try again! I am teaching all summer at the local JoAnns here. It will get better- promise!


  15. If you lived around here I would sign up, sorry that it did not work out this time. Could you possibly bring back the online version I would be willing to pay for your skills with DS.

  16. Oh I am sorry Jen... they don't know what they missed my friend... You know I drove 3 1/2 hours to go to a class that Monique gave a few weeks ago - how far are you from Ukiah???? I will definitely be there my friend.. maybe you and I could just get together and you can give me one on one attention. I would so LOVE to come.

  17. Well, I sure wish that I lived close enough to attend your classes. You do beautiful work and are so very generous to share with others. I am sorry that nobody wanted to take advantage of your teaching. They just don't know how lucky they are to have someone with so much talent who is willing to teach them.

  18. Jen,

    Sorry to hear your class was cancelled. Obviously, they did not know the treat they were in for. So many of us wish we lived near enough to take a class from you. Hang in there, girl. Great things are in store for you.

  19. I wish I lived near you and I would certainly have signed up! Sorry no one did but they just don't know what they are missing.

  20. If I lived there I would have signed up for sure! Perhaps you should do an online class???? Maybe you should ask to host a demo day first to peak interest?

  21. Sorry Jen! That is a big bummer. I'm glad you got to spend the time with your little man though.

    Hang in there. I'm sure it will pick up before you know it!

  22. That is too bad about your class. Wonder why? I know that in my area of the world, people are having some difficulties getting people out. You are so talented and people did miss out!

  23. Jen don't fret you are awesome and all those ladies or gents in your area do not know what they are missing. I would love to take a class from youd darling. Keep your chin up and go take a nice hot bubble bath. At least that is what I do when I have had a bad day.

  24. I also wanted to say hang in there, I think it will come to you. You are so sharing and happy belated 4th B-day to your little one. God Bless You :-)
