So my blog has been a wee bit neglectful lately. It is a result of many different things but 2 of which I want to announce one on here today! These are projects that I have been working on for months (along with many others) and they are FINALLY to the point where I can talk about them; I will tell you more about the second one tomorrow.
So for years, people have asked if we would ever consider having a Maya Road Event where people could join us for a weekend of inspiration. This is something I have thought about for many many many months but couldn't figure out the logistics. I had toyed with the idea of our warehouse but there isn't much good classroom space and air condition would be a must have - unfortunately much of our storage part of the warehouse is not air conditioned so that would be an uncomfortable place to be inspired - perspire yet but inspire no.
So with all that said, we planned an event with one a LSS here in the Dallas Metroplex - The Crafty Scrapper. I have personally known the owner Carolyn (and she is a wonderful friend) for a couple of years and her store has one of the largest selections of Maya Road products I have seen. We have been working together the last 4 months to figure out the logistics of an event and we finally have something wonderful planned.
We wanted to put something together which was both inspiring yet also at a price where we could offer the best value for your money (which has always been the thinking at Maya Road) and thus the Artistic Journey was born. For $235 you will get three - 3 hour classes with 3 Maya Road designers (Lisa Pace, Katie Watson and Aubrey Rives), a special make and take, goody bag and lunch and snacks during the event. We want this event to be small and personal so we have limited it to the first 75 people. Registration started at 10 am on Wednesday and you can find all the details here.
If you can join us, I would love to meet you. I won't be teaching but will be behind the scenes making sure everything goes well.
