Worktable Wednesday

Today I spent most of my afternoon preparing for a photo album workshop at Studio Place Arts. I got a late start due to an unfortunate early morning car scenario. Grrr…

I’m good about documenting things when it comes to classes, so I have a detailed prep checklist. I try to update the file after every class. I love checklists – anything that requires me to think as little as necessary is awesome in my book.

I prepared most of my materials yesterday, so all I had left to do today was to cut the photo album pages.

I love making class kits – it’s like filling birthday party loot bags.

After the kits were done, I had to finish up my class sample. I glued the covers yesterday, so today it was time for binding.

Ta-da! The completed sample.

And then more packing. I tend to stage my packing in the hallway outside my studio so I didn’t take any pictures. I figured that technically, it wasn’t done on my worktable and was therefore disqualified from blog stardom.

Maybe I should start a Hallway Thursday…

I’m probably the most organized slob you’ll ever meet. 🙂

Maudie –

You’re so sweet! My students seemed to enjoy the class. I’ll be writing a post about it later today.
