Carrie Cudney and Express Workshops

 Our next presenter was the amazing Carrie Cudney. I've had the privilege of hearing her speak on several occasions, and am always impressed with what she has to share. During the regional, she discussed Express Workshops. This is a type of workshop which can be done in one hour or less!

How awesome is that? I not only have heard my customers complain of not having enough time to host a workshop, but I know that those same words have come out of my mouth. In this day and age of working multiple jobs to support a family, rushing kids off to school and extra curricular activities, and general business of life, who can't make time for an hour or less of creativity!

There are some simple rules to follow when putting together an Express Workshop....

Once the business end has been taken care of.....the rest is simple. Do a simple make n take and then allow guests to mingle and shop! Wham Bam Thank You Maam! Your workshop is over and you and your guests have plenty of time to get home to take care of all those other obligations we call life. You can even offer the same Make and Take for the month, so all it would take would be to prep one project for the entire month!

This would be the perfect mini-get together for all those busy people you know. You could even put together an express workshop during someone's lunch hour! 

But what about those make n takes? Well leave it to Carrie to provide not only the simple make n takes, but a way to step up those projects for the more experienced stampers. Come back over the next several days, and I'll show you the easy projects as well as the stepped up versions Carrie demonstrated for us.
