Online Courses coming soon!

I can’t believe it’s actually happening.  Thanks to everyones support and encouragement I have taken a giant leap.  (OK, it’s giant for me)  As many of you may know I’m not exactly what you would call a “techy”.  As a matter of fact I really struggle with this aspect of sharing my content with everyone.  You see I don’t come from a technology background and sometime I feel totally out of it.   There are times when I listen to people speaking about their sites and use terms like SEO traffic optimization, shopping-cart,  updates,  SSL, etc… to me it might as well be Greek.   I must admit that technology has always kinda scared me.

I don’t know if it’s part of getting older and being used to old school methods.  For example I still actually mail people letters.  Seriously, I love getting a letter in the mail.  Greeting cards are even better.  So, when technology has been a difficult transition.  However, you know what they say innovate or die.  I don’t want to die…… so I have done it.   I have joined the platform called “New Kajabi”    This has been a huge investment for me.   So far it seem easy enough for even me to use it.  What it will allow me to do is something that I have been working on for a very long time.  Create courses that are more detailed, better organized and easily accessible.  I have been searching for a platform that would allow me to do this and reach more people.  This is something that I am really excited about.   This is how it will work:  (OK, this is how I want it to work, fingers crossed.)   I create courses and projects you have requested and upload them to the platform.   I can organize them as single projects of complete courses with several modules.   The modules can include written patterns,  video tutorials,  user feedback, and tons of other great features such as subscriptions/memberships.

Paper Crafts/ Scrapbooking

I have been seeing these pretty flowers everywhere.  In fact my sister Laura made several beautiful wreaths with this little beauties.  Of course hers came out so much better (Arrghhh!)  The thing I love about these is that you are only limited by your creativity.  You can choose whatever colors or paper backgrounds you like.  I have even seen them made out of colorful magazine pages and music sheet paper.   Whichever paper you choose they seem to always turn out great.    Once complete you can glue these flowers onto picture frames, little cards, wreaths, etc.  They are great for Scrapbooking and general Paper Crafts.

Paper craft (paper quilling) /scrapbooking DIY Instructions:

1. – Find a paper of your choice.  Even construction paper works great.

2. –  I like to trace a circle (to help keep me in place) but this is optional

3. – Draw a swirl inside the circle.  Try to keep your swirls as even as possible.  You can see mine aren’t exactly even but it still worked.

4.)  Cut out your paper rose flower.  I used a curving line but you can make it a straight line if you like.

5.)  Use something small to help you start rolling up the paper.  I used a toothpick.  Once you get it going you won’t need the toothpick anymore.  NOTE:  Before I start rolling it up I added a little dab of glue to help keep the center in place.

6)  Add a dab of glue to the back of flower and attach to a surface.   Enjoy!

That is all there is to it.  See how easy it is to make this  Easy Paper Rose.  Your scrapbooking and paper crafts will never be the same.   : )
