About an hour ago, I wrote a great post for you with details about my personal life and details about my upcoming class. A few minutes ago, I went back in to make a correction and somehow I deleted it all! Good grief! Post try #2 ....
Hello! I first want to thank you for your patience. A lot of you read through the lines and so I do want to tell you that I am going to be getting a divorce. I am not going into all the details right now, but please know that this is a positive step for my life. I am not living in my house right now, so I was really worried if I would be able to create my class sample. I am happy to announce that the creative mojo was there for me! And it came out great! After my December class, I decided for my January class I wanted to teach another explosion box, as it has been two years since I taught it. The last one was a Valentine theme. I knew I wanted to do a birthday theme one this time. It is similar to the one I made for the store owner, Carolyn, a couple of years ago, but this one is fancier! I have a few photos to show you. Just forgive my lighting and non cropping this time! Enjoy!
Here it is closed ...
And when you remove the lid ... the explosion happens for the reveal!
Here it is with it fully opened ... It has 28 pockets for notes or photos! LOVE!
And here is a close up of the cake inside. You can even turn on and off the tealight in the top tier.
