Oh you don't want to see my face under any conditions, trust me.  Tongue  But if you'd like, I can have my husband take photos when I do open it.  Wink

I had a very productive week.... went from having nothing totally done, because i kept starting different things, guess I was sorta excited..... to having 1 medium finished (although with the hours that went into it, it could be a large).... 1 small done, which could be a medium but since I have done it so many times it takes me no time at all... a large, planned, cut and ready to be put together..... and a bit more done on what is turning out to be a SUPER DE DUPER EXTRA LARGE, but is coming out really cool..... waiting on the last thing to be delivered so that I can finally finish .......

I started and half-way finished a medium today. Also, I decided on something I just have to make for an extra. Just because.

In other news, it's official! I'll be teaching a class on creating wire/bead trees at my local beading store later this month, on top of the french beaded flower class I'll be teaching at the same store in May. Yay! I'm excited and nervous about teaching these classes. I don't think the techniques I use are hard, but I worry that people won't be able to grasp everything because so many bead artists are used to following strict patterns, like with bead weaving, or creating things with techniques like the peyote stitch, which is very precise. The stuff I do is more art than science, and I just hope I can get people to let go of their patterns and just think art. Know what I mean?

I would feel so liberated in a class like yours.  The step by step, can't get creative, must follow each rule , precision of the beading instructions I've found are beyond me.  I have to have a little flexibility to succeed.  For instance, I use sewing patterns but I read over them and then make things using a combination of the instructions and my own idea of what makes sense.  I wish your class was local to me!

I wondered where you've been.  I haven't seen you online for a few days.  Hope you feel better soon.

I think this is soooo great.  I hate it when instructors say, do it this way because there is no other way.  I love free form.

I wish you could take my class! I also hope there are lots of people around here that feel the same way. Smiley

You should have them advertise it specifically for people who think outside the box and who like to be allowed to think for themselves while learning a new skill.

I absolutely agree! I hate instructions and usually only look at how-to's for inspiration. Any class that lets me use my creative process is wonderful.

As a jewelry-making teacher, I have to say that I hate telling people to do things a certain way, but most of the time my students will get upset if I don't tell them to do it only one way.  In fact, I teach several classes where the students are supposed to do things their own way and I'm there for them to ask questions, etc... and they get annoyed that I'm not telling them precisely how to do it JUST LIKE I AM DOING IT.

So it swings both ways!  Some areas there are more people who have to have precise instruction (where I live, for instance) and some areas there are people who just don't want to be constrained like that.  Smiley
