Used in a sentence: It came to Sherry in an epiphany that she should no longer try to teach watercolored coffee filter rose workshops!
Yep, it finally hit me yesterday when I learned that I only had 2 enrollees and a "not-so-sure-will-call-back" for my workshop that was scheduled in Carlsbad this morning.
I've been told by store owners that everyone that sees my roses thinks they are so lovely and can't believe they are made from coffee filters, papertowels, and/or book pages, but they just don't know what they would do with them.
Huuuummmmm, maybe make a bouquet to give to someone special? Or how about learn a new craft where you can finally use some of those little pots of Twinkling H2O's you bought 2 years ago that are just sitting around in a box in your studio somewhere?
Ok, I tried. So now I think I'll just sell my roses, have a give-away on my blog, send to special people in my life, oh yeah, I guess I should take some over to Stampington and Co. Jenny Doh e-mailed me back in November to say she thought they would be a good addition in the Somerset Life publication. I've been so busy pushing these workshops that I completely forgot. YIKES!
