I have been through this before, but somehow it is worse this time around.
The store that I have been working at, teaching at and ordering through, Capture A Memory, is closing.
I have only been teaching there for a little over a year, but I am finally starting to develop a customer base of students who want to learn new techniques, try new products and create amazing pieces. And now my classroom, and store, will be gone.
Yesterday I was angry and in shock. Today I am just sad. Very, very sad.
I am determined to continue my career in the papercrafting industry — and I have many possibilities ahead of me. I need some time to investigate them and determine what is best for me.
In the meantime, I am setting up a little yard sale to get rid of my unused and gently used papercrafting products in order to generate some money to invest in tables, tents and other things I may need for the step 2. I’ll be putting those items up in the next couple of days. If you would like an invite, send me an e-mail with your Facebook name and I’ll get it sent out.
I also would like to extend an invitation: I am willing to travel to teach. If you provide the students and the space, I am more than happy to teach you! Just let me know what you want to learn and I’ll put something together.
Of course, I still have all of my design team work to keep me busy, so I’ll be posting more projects soon. Thanks for listening!
