The show must go on!

The past week has been a blur of rehearsals and class prep for my very imminent Thru' the Year scrapbooking class. I am only just feeling better from my laryngitis that turned into a stinker of a cold. Still got no sense of taste or smell which is sometimes useful but mostly really annoying. It means I can eat things I don't normally really like so that they don't go to waste but it also means I have no idea whether or not I should wear that sweater for another day or not!

Wanted to share some photo's of my craft room but, as you will see when I upload some photos in the next few days, it is rather full of other things at the moment. Next week Georgia, Joel and I are in a compilation show called Hollywood Stories at the Forum studio theatre in Chester city centre. It comprises between thirty and forty well known movie songs. It is all singing, all dancing with a cast of only eight and boy is it hectic. The fourteen costume changes alone are a challenge without having to perform as well! Really excited about it but as this is the third show we have performed in THIS year I think we are looking forward to a break. Nige will be glad I can focus on work again!

I am excited about the scrapbook class for my own selfish reasons. Last January I decided to create a double page layout for every month of 2010 so that by the end of the year i would have a record of the events - ordinary and special - with relatively little effort. I am ashamed to say I didn't even finish January! So I reckoned if I taught it as a quarterly class completing three months at a time it would make sure I got it finished. And it would seem there are lot of others excited by this idea judging by the bookings. So bring it on.

Have to dash now as teaching an Introduction to Scrapbooking class this morning before the Thru' the Year this afternoon. It's exciting to introduce new people to the immensely enjoyable craft of scrapbooking!
