I hope you've had a lovely day. I've just climbed into bed, after a long day at work, and then home to preparing for a Watercolour Pencils workshop tomorrow evening.
My post today is to share with you why I love holding Project Life and Memory Keeping workshops. It's made a big difference to my business, and also to the friendships I have made with the ladies who come along. It also allows non crafters to join in, and get involved with something that anyone can do.
As I mentioned above, running memory keeping workshops has increased sales, and also attracted new customers to my classes. What really matters to me when I receive an order form is that I have inspired someone to buy a product that they want to have themselves, that they think they can use and will produce beautiful creations. I'm really excited to share with people the many different ways that they can use their products, and love seeing their Project Life albums come to life over time.
When ladies bring their photos to a Project Life workshop, they are not just bringing an image. They are bringing stories and tales, memories and names. I always look at their photos and ask about the event or moment, and sit back to listen. We've had laughs, giggles and even tears! One of my ladies on Saturday was talking about her beloved dog, who passed away. It's important that these memories are recorded and kept, and written down to pass to future generations, or for ourselves when we are older and memories are hard to recall.
Crafters and Non Crafters
Memory Keeping can be what ever you want it to be. I bring along all my inks, dies and a selection of stamps for the ladies to use in their pages. They can do as much or as little crafting and embellishing as they choose. There's no right or wrong way to do it, it's their pages to keep simple or glam up to their liking. It's a perfect hobby for non-crafters, as all you need is some photos, pocket pages and a card collection.
Don't forget that the Project Life products will no longer be available after the end of this month so please head towww.alexspence.stampinup.net to place your order.
Please call back tomorrow, I'm going to be sharing the card collections and accessory packs. x
