Success!

My first class was a smashing success! We had more people than we had spots for so I think it's safe to say that I will be running the intro class again. I have the two night leather class coming up on the 23rd and 30th and I think there are just a few spots left!
After I get my school schedule I plan on running an advanced ribbon hinge class which will have the intro class as a pre-requisite. Either way I am extremely excited.

In other exciting news my birthday is this weekend! I still don't have any solid plans, just excited! I already have my first present- and I opened it- because I knew what it was... My mom has this thing of making us pick out our presents now... I got volume 5 in the Keith Smith series Quick Leather Bindings. That leaves me needing volume 4 only, which I am actually quite interested in as I will be taking photography this term and will need a way to bind all those single sheets.

As some of you may have devised from the comments a few posts ago I have been having problems with my carpal tunnel and sadly it's kept me from doing any work in my studio or much of anything at all. The good news is that it's getting better and hopefully I'll be back to work with in the next week or so!

That's great news! How exciting!
I do hope you're taking some photos after classes or having a significant other or friend take some pictures while you teach. It's a small thing, but when you look back on them you will be glad you did it. Plus we want to seeeee.... :D

COngratulations with the sucess of your class. Happy Birhtday for the weekend, I posted your card today ;)

Do let us know how you get on with the leather book, I am dithering about getting that one too. You could always drop big hints about volume 4 for Christmas pressies to the family.

Get well soon with the hands

Thank you both!

I had thought about the camera about half way through the class. One of those things that when you are in the middle of getting ready to teach for the first time it doesn't enter your head.

I hope to spend some serious time with the book next week so I'll let you know what I think Billie!
