I am writing this post because it is necessary to let you all know whats going on and how I feel. Lately in our classes only 1,2 maybe 3 of you come in and take class. Sometimes lately I have had to cancel class because of low to no attendance. I know we have lives and things come up however...this is becoming a issue. Many stop by to say hello and I love seeing you, remember though I work at a retail store and I have to meet their requirements to be able to continue to do what I love to do. My class size numbers at my store have significantly decreased over the past 2-3 years, If I can't get my numbers up in class participation again, I can no longer teach classes going into 2016. Surely I don't want this to happen. I have been there almost 10 years. A lot has changed in paper crafting and for you/us I change as much as they allow me to, with some things my hands are tied but I will continue to push the envelope as mush as possible. Our classes need to become a priority again, I need input on what you want to see and I'll make it a class...but then I also need you to come to class and make the project. While I would love to continue teaching, I am also at peace with the need to move on if that is what you my customers/friends are wanting. I love you all more than you know and hope my post generates some conversation about where we go from here.
